Reflexology is the massage of areas of the feet (and sometimes hands) that correspond to other parts of the body. It is used to discern and prevent health problems. This guide teaches readers about healing an ailing immune, digestive, nervous, or circulatory system. It also shows how to perform reflexology on oneself and on others, and how to combine aromatherapy and reflexology by using fragrant oils and lotions.

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.
