Charles E. Tuttle, 1993 - 82 pages
Reflexology is an ancient healing art using pressure, especially on certain points on the feet. Its central idea is that the body is divided into ten vertical zones with an energy link between all parts of the body falling within a particular zone, and that by applying pressure to one area, pain can be reduced in other areas within that zone. Reflexology thoroughly discusses the development of reflexology in the West, its underlying premises, what to expect during a visit to a therapist's office, and do-it-yourself reflexology.
