Welcome to my website and eBook
'Visual Reflexology and Foot Reading'
ABOUT THE eBOOK
This website introduces my interactive eBook ‘Visual Reflexology and Foot Reading’. Keep reading if you’d like more information about its contents or follow the links below. Other pages of the website cover the meaning of visual reflexology and information about my training workshops.
For a quick overview of Visual Reflexology read this interview in the Mystic online magazine.
The book is suitable for everyone from reflexology students to experienced foot readers.
Visual Reflexology is based entirely within Western Anatomy & Physiology and so provides a natural foundation in foot reading for those who have learned reflexology with this system. There is no need for additional study of any other medical or philosophical systems to understand it, as all the references used are already within the reader’s existing sphere of knowledge.
What some reflexologists think of the eBook...
Where Angela's book differs so much from the other foot reading material I have accessed is in giving greater consideration to physical issues. Angela explores them first before addressing the emotional aspects. This works well for me and has been invaluable in understanding and writing up my case studies.
She also includes techniques for addressing presenting issues which are really useful and which aren't found in other foot reading resources."
100 percent recommend it to reflexologists and students."
The Advantages Of Digital Publishing
It offers so many new ways of sharing information, allowing the use of interactive teaching methods including technique videos, subscriber forums, and Q&As, as well as links to other reflexology websites and teachers 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 after the eBook is finished I can carry on with a blog about Visual Reflexology and foot reading.
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 chapters of the eBook, I use these types of annotated photos and legends to explain how to read the feet. Detailed explanations are added 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 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 chapter. In this section, if subscribers wish they can comment, ask me questions about the content and request further information on related subjects.
The eBook chapters
In the ebook chapters, I look into every aspect of foot reading and visual reflexology in much more depth.
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.
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.
The chapters that comprise the two sections of the book are listed below

Once the eBook is finished, I will hopefully I will be able to make a printed copy with a system for accessing all the interactive material online. But it will be quite a while before it is ready.
