As a practitioner, author and instructor of reflexology for decades, I have not come across a more thorough, well rounded instruction manual on the topic. Reflexology is not massage, and Ms. Stone’s work clearly demonstrates that reflexology is its own, “stand-alone” therapy. This is a must have text for serious students and instructors of the practice and art of reflexology.
