Summary

Summary

This book sets forth a program that can help you achieve lasting relief from aches, pains and illness. Already known and used by many throughout the centuries, reflex massage works by releasing the healing energies latent in the body itself, curing ailments in a completely natural, non-medicinal way. Reflexology is one of the most miraculous means of utilizing nature's own healing methods for maintaining the body in peak operating condition and probably one of the least familiar to us. It requires no pills, drugs, tranquilizers or mutilating surgery, can be self-administered with perfect safety anywhere or anytime and can be used with people of all ages. Step by step, the author teaches you how to massage away headaches, backaches, sinus problems, vision problems, coughs, colds, respiratory problems, hemorrhoids, etc. by learning techniques that can be learned in minutes.
