Reflexology is the practice of applying pressure to specific points on the feet and hands to influence the health of corresponding parts of the body. Hands engage in many activities during the day and are one of our most important sensory organs. Overuse of hands is common and hard-working hands can become injured through hobbies, sport or work. Hand Reflexology teaches the reader how to use hand reflexology to maintain better general health and keep hands in top condition.

Visions of Health
Author: Bernard Jensen
For over one hundred years, researchers have studied the links between health and the patterns, colors, and textures of the iris. In the United States, Dr. Bernard Jensen brought the art of reading the iris into the twentieth century. In Visions of Health , Drs. Jensen and Bodeen describe the basics of iris analysis in easy-to-understand language with dozens of illustrations and color photos, as well as charts for reading your own eyes and those of friends. They believe that with this book in hand, you can recognize weaknesses in the iris and adjust your lifestyle to achieve optimum health.

Bernard Jensen, who pioneered Iridology in the United States, presents a basic introduction to this science which analyzes the delicate structures of the iris to reveal and locate inflammation in the body. Readers are given an explanation of how the chart works, including detailed illustrations of iris topography showing individual systems charts, and over two dozen color photographs of irises diagnosing stages of different ailments. This book supports Jensen's belief that iridology is an important element in the total, holistic health care program.
Massage and Aromatherapy
Author: Andrew Vickers, Caroline Stevensen, Steve Van Toller
This book aims to give health professionals a balanced and indepen dent overview of massage and aromatherapy. I have written it because, despite growing interest, there is a dearth of professional literature on this subject. This book aims to cover a number of topics which are under-represented in existing publications. These include: • scientific research in massage and aromatherapy; • the use of the therapies in medical settings; • the knowledge base of massage and aromatherapy; • professional and managerial issues; • safety. Understanding of these subjects is essential for any reasoned evalu ation of massage and aromatherapy. Yet this book is probably the first to provide information suitable for this task. At the current time of writing, almost all books on massage and aroma therapy have been written with the lay public in mind. The texts recommended to students and practitioners by the foremost schools and institutions are exactly the same as those available in health food shops as general introductions for prospective patients. Not surprisingly, such books generally fail to include in-depth discussions of professional issues.
