5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding and Extremely Comprehensive December 4, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has been surprisingly overlooked, but it is an absolute treasure!

Every page contains full-color references, charts, and of course, excellent images of the feet and hands, with detailed attention to each organ system. The book also contains a wonderful CD that demonstrates the techniques for greater comprehension.

I hope this book becomes better-known in the professional reflexology community, because it is a valuable teaching AND reference tool. Highly recommended for both the aspiring student and the professional reflexologist.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of a Kind in the Reflexology Field March 1, 2013
Paula Stone has raised the bar for reflexology authors. This is a masterpiece containing comprehensive content, maps, techniques and a companion DVD. Valuable for every professional whether beginner or advanced level. Sure to be a classic for all time and a must have for your educational library. Thanks Paula for highlighting my own Fibromyalgia pain management study in this book and for acknowledging the work and research of Dr. Jesus Manzanares, MD on the science-based principles of reflexology. Great job and an honor to be received by Pearson Education. Linda Chollar, The Reflexology Mentor
