The eyes may be the window to the soul but the hands are a window into your body, and by learning to apply vertical and conventional hand reflexology you will be able to tap into your body's natural healing properties that allow you to heal yourself. Although pressure points on the hands and feet were discovered 5,000 years ago, over the centuries reflexology techniques have continued to be developed, defined and, in this case, discovered. Vertical Reflex Therapy (VRT) for hands is a simple but extremely effective form of reflexology that is applied to the hands when they're weight-bearing, that is, when your palms are resting on a flat surface. The basic premise of reflexology is that tension or disease in the body creates an imbalance of the body's life force, and this is manifested in tender reflexes in the hand and feet. VRT appears to magnify the benefits of traditional reflexology by not only clearing a pathway for the reflex but by opening up the whole zone in the body - a bit like flushing out a blocked pipe. This book guides you through the techniques for practising both traditional reflexology and Booth's newly discovered VRT, using helpful illustrations and detailing the methods step by step. The book also briefly covers VRT nail working, which utilises the original VRT weight-bearing techniques to stimulate the minute grid system of reflexes on the nails. The case studies and slightly technical explorations of the body's systems will appeal to professional reflexologists or complementary therapists, but the interested reader who would like to learn how to treat herself, family or friends will also find the book easy to use and understand. Given that most people, from tiny babies to the very elderly, can benefit from reflexology, this book is sure to appeal to a wide audience. (Kirkus UK)
