This complete self-teaching guide is the perfect handbook for beginners and students alike. It uniquely links Eastern and Western approaches to reflexology and health, making this a comprehensive guide to using the meridians and pressure points of the feet to treat a wide range of ailments. The author has a strong sales track -- Reflexology: An Introduction sold almost 80,000 copies from 1992-2000. Our new edition of her Complete Illustrated Guide to Reflexology sold 15,000 copies in the first 18 months of publication and is selling c.400/month. The author sells and promotes her books through her schools and website. Her main school is in Johannesburg, South Africa; she has recently opened her first school in the USA (Seattle) and has a business plan in place to open more schools over the next five years; she has a similar plan in place for the UK and Canada; she has successful schools in Greece and Poland and is looking to set up more in other European countries. This book is the only one that brings together East and West, integrating the Chinese meridian system into the workings of reflexology. As such, it is on the reading lists of many schools and colleges but is quite hard to get hold of at the moment -- therefore there is a real demand for our new edition.
