Product Description

From the Back Cover

You're no idiot, of course. You know echinacea can help a runny nose, massage is good for aching back muscles, and yoga can help relax a tired body. But when it comes to reflexology--the practice of healing the body by applying pressure to different parts of the feet--you'd rather just soak your tired dogs in hot water and call it a day. Don't feel so de-feeted just yet! The Complete Idiot's Guide to Reflexology is a fun, easy-to-follow, illustrated guide to massaging your own (and others) feet to treat back pain, headaches, upset stomachs, colds, allergies, stress, depression, and more. In this Complete Idiot,s Guide you'll learn how to:

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun & Interesting!! 5 stars!! March 26 2004
This book is PERFECT for those just starting out in Reflexology. This book is informative, funny and extremely detailed! The books goes into much detail on all the different body systems and how everything is connected. The only thing I didn't like was that you have to read alot before you can actually start practicing reflexology. There is a part that I really enjoyed that gives you info on how to tell a person's personality by looking at their feet. :D Lots of humor and fun stuff that will make you want to keep reading until you finish. I read half of the book in the first day. You'll like it!!! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to understand, with stimulating information Aug. 7 2002
I love this book!!! As a new reflexologist, I find it so simple to use this book as a quick reference guide when I need to "remember" things I have forgotten as well, needing information on the different systems of the body. Its nice to be able to tell a client more about their problems, and even better to be able to give them advice on how to handle them holistically. This book gives great information but is funny and entertaining enough to hold any readers attention for hours!
Thank you for a great book!

This book really gives details on how to help yourself & others with basic reflexology techniques. Specifics of each area of the body are covered, how to watch for problems & ways to fix them. For example, ways to deal with symptoms for PMS, back problems, motion sickness, allergies & asthma. Uses of other related items like aromatherapy lotions & oils, reflexology tools & nutritional supplements. It also covers fun stuff like figuring personalities by checking out people's feet. :)

2.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't teach you enough Oct. 10 2001
This book is thick for a "Complete Idiot's Guide" book. It's packed with information. Unfortunately much of the information is on why you should try out reflexology. Funny, I bought the book because I already knew why and because I wanted to learn how to do it. In other words, the author tries too hard -- waste the reader's time -- justifying the legitimacy of reflexology.
So you don't get your feet wet (no pun intended) until chapter 13, when the author starts talking about techniques. Unfortunately she's too talkative; there's a lot of unnecessary stuff, which the book falls short when it comes to really teaching you and me how to practice reflexology. The photos are okay but few. Last year I saw a colored reflexology book at the local ...store and it was a much better book, because from the very start it delved into the how. Too bad when I went back the book was already sold out.
In short, this book gives you good background info on reflexology, but you won't learn much on the techniques from it.
