Press Here! Reflexology for Beginners is a beautifully illustrated guide, to show you how to use massage pressure on the feet, to heal holistically. It’s safe for most people, but do check with your GP, if you have any medical conditions first. You don’t need to use essential oils, but if you do avoid them for pregnancy/nursing and medical conditions like epilepsy and asthma.
Each part of your body has a corresponding reflex point on the feet. Applying pressure to these specific points, can send relief to the corresponding part of your body. It’s no wonder that reflexology has become one of the most popular alternative forms of healing.
While the principles of reflexology can be overwhelming for the beginner, this book gives a clear explanation of where to find the reflex point on the foot, along with how it relates to the body, and how to apply the correct pressure for the strongest effect. Organised by reflex points from top to bottom of the body, this guide is a breeze to follow.
Reflexology is best practiced on the feet as they are more delicate. But for amputees or people with ticklish feet (!), you can learn hand reflexology instead. This can also be used anywhere, from riding the part to listening to a lecture in class. The book includes a reflex map of the hands, illustrations and simple instructions, along with guided techniques for specific health issues, organised by ailments.
