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:

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.
This book is not just about the wonderful healing art, Reflexology, but discusses how the 5 body systems interact and react. Frankie talks about how you can relieve many symptoms from allergies to PMS with hand and foot reflexology as well as with other methods. I can't wait for her next book, The Complete Idiots Guide to Herbal Remedies - I know that between the two of them that I'll be able to maintain my health and heal myself naturally when I'm not quite right.
I promise you will learn much more than you expect and have fun too!
PS. Reflexology is GREAT DURING DATES to break the ice!!!! (just be sure to read page 6 before you ask your date for a treatment ;-)
Thank you for a great book!
