What some reflexologists think of the eBook...
"I have loved reading and really value Angela Telford's Foot Reading eBook. My understanding of what is going on in the body when a pair of feet are presented to me is growing with every chapter released.

Where Angela's book differs so much form 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.

Sharon Lee
Reflexology Student
"I'm blown away with Angela's knowledge of how to read feet and I am thrilled that she's started this eBook. It is so informative, fascinating and amazing to have the concept of visual reflexology at our fingertips."
Andrea Foster
"My current student group have been loving using your eBook. It's a fantastic resource and I
100 percent recommend it to reflexologists and students."
Carolyn Roberts
Reflexology Tutor Gaia School
"Angela has a wealth of knowledge and expertise to share in an innovative way. This unique e-book gives an opportunity for constant updates to the latest findings and teachings around the subject of Visual Reflexology. It is fascinating information for new and experienced reflexologists alike!"
Felicity Bevell

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. Most of the practical chapters ready to read, with the rest due to be uploaded approximately one per month until the eBook is finished. Subscribers will be notified when subsequent chapters are uploaded.

The website pages also include an introduction to foot reading and visual reflexology, and information about my training workshops.

The Advantages Of Digital Publishing

 I’m publishing the book online because digital media is such an exciting medium in which to share knowledge.

 It offers so many new ways of sharing information, allowing the use of interactive learning 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 core eBook is finished I can carry on with blog posts not just from myself but also guest bloggers from within the field of foot reading and from other areas of reflexology.

All these things are incorporated into the posts which comprise the chapters of the book, so there is limitless potential for including so much more than I could do in a non-digital medium.

Printed Book

There are currently no plans for a physical book because of the prohibitive cost of printing (even with digital technology), a book including the hundreds of colour photos that are an essential part of the teaching in the ebook. Once the ebook is finished I will look into it again as there may possibly be a way to print it more cheaply than currently anticipated. But at this point in time there are no guarantees it will be possible, sadly. 

    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 

Ridge of hard skin lung zone 2 & pale coloured skin up thyroid 
Curving U shaped lines/shadow over stomach/pancreas
Pea shaped swelling over adrenal/kidney
Congestion in liver zone 5
Multiple fine lines emanating from spine across small intestine zones 1/2/3 
Rippling grooves across abdominal area/intestines zones 3-5
Compression lines from gluteal muscles – pressure > hip

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, request further information on related subjects, post their own photos, etc. 

The eBook chapters

In the ebook chapters, I will be looking 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. 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. Most of these are finished (those in blue below) and available for subscribers to read now, but others are yet to be written (those in violet) 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 eBook has been finished. There will be new posts uploaded regularly on the subject from either myself or guest bloggers. Access to these will also be available by subscription.
