Welcome to my website and eBook
'Foot Reading and Visual Reflexology'
This website contains the posts that make up the chapters of my eBook ‘Foot Reading and Visual Reflexology’. Subscribers can read the book online here.
ABOUT THE eBOOK
All the book chapters are found in the subscribers’ area of the website, which you will be able to access once you have subscribed. You can read each chapter there in chronological order, just as you would the chapters of a physical book. Follow these links if you’d like more information about the theory chapters and the practical chapters of the book. To read about why I decided to publish the book online this way, watch the video below or continue scrolling down.
Other pages of the website give an introduction to visual reflexology and details of my training workshops.
What some reflexologists think of the blog...
The eBook consists of two parts, the first is the theory part about why to foot read, what it adds to your practice, and to the profession generally. And the second part is the practical part about how to foot read, which explains in depth what all the things we see on the feet are telling us about the health and well being of clients.
The theory chapters that make up the first part of the eBook are all written, and ready to read. The second part of the eBook has been started, with the first set of practical chapters ready to read. Subscribers will be notified when subsequent chapters are uploaded, which will be approximately one per month until the eBook is finished.
The Advantages Of Digital Publishing
It offers so many new ways of sharing information, allowing the use of interactive learning methods such as videos, podcasts, member forums, and Q&As, as well as links to other teaching websites and the potential of running webinars. I can constantly add new content and instantly update the old, and use unlimited amounts of colour photographs and charts.
And it means there can be input not just from myself but also fellow members, and guest bloggers from within the field of foot reading and from other areas of reflexology.
Example of a Colour Photo with Coded Legend for Foot Reading
On the photo below I have annotated some of the visual manifestations it is possible to read on this foot, and then added a colour-coded legend.
In the blog posts that comprise the chapters of the eBook, I use these types of annotated photos and legends to give foot readings. Detailed explanations are also added to the photos to show why the textures, lines, colours etc. are occurring where they are, and what they are telling us about the health of the reflexes, both physically and emotionally.
Compressed 5th toe – Pressure jaw & shoulder joint
Swollen Sinus Pads
Swollen Pituitary(or Hypothalamus) & inverted V base of the cranium
Angle of neck – slight lateral inclination
Interactive Learning Tools
You can watch videos that I’ve made such as the one below, which demonstrate different ways to work on the feet based on what we see at the reflexes. I also share videos and podcasts from other foot readers and reflexology tutors.
Comment Sections, Subscriber Forums, and Q&As
There is the possibility for everyone to be involved, with a comments section after each post. In this section, if you wish you can comment, ask questions, request further information on related subjects, post your own photos, etc.
The eBook chapters
In the book chapters, I will be looking into every aspect of foot reading and visual reflexology in much more depth. Each post will be the equivalent of a chapter of the eBook. Once you have paid your subscription you will always be able to access the book online here.
The first section of the book is comprised of theory chapters explaining why reflexologists should learn to foot read and how best to use this skill in your reflexology practice and within the wider context of the profession as a whole. These posts are already written and available to read.
The second section of the book is comprised of the practical chapters and how to actually read the feet. They cover all the different aspects of foot reading, including what to look for and how to interpret what we see. I have written and posted the core group of these, but others are yet to be written and will be uploaded on a monthly basis until the book is finished. Subscribers will be notified as soon as each one is available to read.
Follow on blog posts will be continued after the core eBook has been finished. There will be new posts on the subject monthly from either myself or guest bloggers. As long as you renew your yearly subscription you will also have access to all of these when they come out.
