Interviews & Essays

From the Author

"What do you mean that I can rub my big toe and relieve my stiff neck? Are you crazy?" That's what I was secretly thinking before my very first reflexology class, but I was interested enough in the concept to continue, and I am glad I did. Now I am a reflexologist with a successful holistic health practice and the author of the book you are considering purchasing. (And yes, as a matter of fact, the reflexology DID relieve my stiff neck!) Reflexology has helped me and my clients overcome many temporary obstacles, and it could be your 'foot in the door' to better health too! I wrote this book for you so that you would be humored throughout while you gain an interesting perspective on how your body works, how the toe bone's connected to the foot bone, and so on, and how and why reflexology is a natural, safe and feel-so-good therapy for all ages. I hope this book will empower you to take your health into your own hands (so to speak). Also included in this book are tips on -Nutrition -Herbal remedies (look for my next book in a few months on this topic) -Essential oil -Professional photos -Diagrams and charts -Vitamin, Minerals and other supplements These will help you get the most out of your natural healing therapies. —Frankie Avalon Wolfe
