Reflexology is the application of pressure to the feet, hands, and ears to affect the corresponding parts of the body. By stimulating points on the feet and hands, we can increase blood flow and normalize tissue function in other parts of the body.

The Art of Healing, December 2009:
This DVD is informative – and fun. You could essentially be viewing it at the same time as practicing – the first time you watch it.
Massage Today Review:
.. you will certainly get a good introduction to reflexology, and will be able to incorporate many basic reflexology techniques into your massage session.
It is a pleasure to view this video. As I have come to expect with Sean Riehl’s videos, the production quality is superb. The pictures are sharp, the script is tight, the lighting is on the money, and music is serene. I must make a special note of the high quality graphics, which make an important contribution to the usability of this video. The camera is positioned so that the viewer can clearly observe the techniques presented, unlike some other reflexology videos I have seen where the practitioner’s hands are blocked.
