The first complete book of reflexology to incorporate acupuncture, naturopathy, homeopathy, and the chakra system • Remaps the entire foot to fine-tune the pressure points • Explains how to work with the emotional reactions that may be released when physical conditions are treated • Full-color detailed diagrams provide precise illustrations of pressure points In this groundbreaking work, Dr. Martine Faure-Alderson takes reflexology to a new level by integrating acupuncture, naturopathy, homeopathy, and other holistic healing modalities into the practice. From her background as a physician, she brings a scientific precision to using the foot as a map of the body and all of its systems. She then uses her training in alternative therapies to integrate the mental and psychological issues that may accompany physical conditions, providing the first complete holistic approach to using reflexology for physical, emotional, and mental health. Total Reflexology presents each of the major body systems in turn--from the digestive system to the human energetic system--using 25 full-color newly mapped foot diagrams that provide precise indications of pressure points and their correspondences to all areas of the body. The author also includes her latest work using craniosacral therapy and the role of the cerebrospinal fluid in reflexology as well as how to integrate use of the chakra system. She shows how finely tuned reflexology stimulates the body’s self-healing abilities, making this an indispensable resource for the layman and professional alike.

How to apply the precise treatment techniques of Total Reflexology, which combines craniosacral therapy and foot reflexology, to the hands • Explains the special relationship between the hand and the brain, making hand reflexology ideal for treatment of neurological, mental, and emotional disorders • Details how to use the occipital zones of craniosacral therapy to pinpoint which zones and points on the hands to treat • Includes full-color detailed maps of the pressure points and zones of the hands One of the most defining physical characteristics of humanity, the hands contain reflex zones and pressure points related to the systems and organs of the body just like the feet. The reflex zones and points of the hands present the most effective means of treating psychological and neurological disorders due to their sophisticated relationship with the brain. Applying her ground-breaking combination of reflexology and craniosacral therapy to the hands, Dr. Martine Faure-Alderson explains how to use hand reflexology to treat the brain and each of the body’s systems, from the digestive system to the human energetic system. She provides precise full-color mapped hand diagrams illustrating the exact placement of the points according to the bones of the hands, the result of more than 40 years of research and clinical practice. She explains how to use the occipital zones of craniosacral therapy to pinpoint which zones and points on the hands to treat. Examining the psychological level of brain-hand interactions, the author reveals how neurological dysfunctions and mental disorders respond more readily to hand reflexology than to other forms of therapies. She explains how many physical ailments have a psychological component and how reflexology automatically triggers the release of endorphins by working directly on the autonomic nervous system. The author explores the role of nutritional supplements, including Omega 3s, as a support to reflexology therapy and shows how finely tuned reflexology stimulates the body’s self-healing abilities and cellular regeneration, making this an indispensable resource for holistic health practitioners and for home self-care.

An innovative and holistic approach that combines the healing powers of gemstones with reflexology therapy • Presents a synergistic therapy that can help numerous mental and physical disorders • Includes illustrated instructions for determining the specific needs of a disorder and how to apply the therapy Combining the healing energy of crystals and reflexology therapy, Gemstone Reflexology offers a holistic approach to triggering the body’s self-healing energies to deal with a large number of mental and physical disorders, ranging from hear­tache to heart disease. The treatment is based on using eight gemstone wands--agate, amethyst, fluorite, heliotrope, rock crystal, rose quartz, rutilated quartz, and sodalite--that allow users to direct the healing power of the crystals to activate designated pressure points. Every gemstone has specific healing properties. When crafted into wands, these gems enable the patient to apply the perfect amount of pressure on the appropriate acupressure point. The energies of the crystal combine with the energies released by the pressure on the reflexology point to produce a powerful force for healing. Readers are provided a system of kinetic analysis to determine the appropriate stone and pressure point for their specific condition. Sodalite, for example, has a beneficial effect on mental health, which is increased when applied to the pressure points corresponding to the head; agate helps in the treatment of skin disorders; and amethyst restores vigor. The book contains illustrated instructions that show the treatment areas for a wide range of conditions, including earaches, headaches and migraines, back and joint pain, colds and flu, low blood pressure, intestinal cramps, cardiovascular disease, and depression.
