Merle Sunde', renowned therapist and teacher of Reflexology gives an instructional and clear overview of Reflexology. This non-invasive therapy focuses on proper manipulation of reflex points to trigger responses that enhance the body's own natural healing powers. Ms. Sunde' has taught this accepted and effective therapy for the past twenty years. It was when she was diagnosed with cancer of the lymph system that her interest in alternative methods for self-healing began. She discovered that the practice of Reflexology helped her to feel centered, relaxed and promoted the feeling of well being that is so integral to the healing process. The emphasis in this video is on foot Reflexology.

This video is a great teaching tool, but I must detract one star for the poor animation during the initial discussion of the reflex points on the feet (only one of which is shown). It portrays them as pea-sized points, instead of more general areas, except in a couple instances. Also, you can't tell if the points are on the upper surface of the feet, or on the bottom, untill each section moves into Ms. Sunde's demonstration of working said points. This may seem picky, but good, bright and colorful animation is very important to me. I would have opted for more colorful animation, but at least Ms. Sunde's demonstrations are accurate, clear and concise, and so I can forgive this lack of creativity in production.
I must applaud Ms. Sunde's discussion, in two instances, of one not diagnosing an illness, or condition; and her instruction that reflexology deals with the flow of energy, energy blockages, and the energy body; differentiating from the physical body, which keeps one clear of "questionable" ground. In my opinion, any legitimate instructor would make this a key issue, as a practitioner of reflexology could be "shut down," if not careful. This alone deserves four stars!!!!
All in all, I appreciate this video. In spite of it's plain nature, it is very good instruction and worth the money spent on it.
