Dr. Martine Faure-Alderson had integrated naturopathy, acupuncture and homeopathy into her medical practice for 25 years before she began her training in reflexology in the 1960s. Faure-Alderson takes reflexology to a new level by integrating alternative therapies and her back ground as a physician at her Total Reflexology Therapy school in Paris. She brings a scientific precision to using the foot as a map of the body and all of its systems providing the first complete holistic approach to using reflexology.

Total Reflexology is the first complete book of reflexology to incorporate osteopathy, craniosacral therapy and the chakra system. Presented in turn, are each of the major body systems. This reference book remaps the entire foot to fine tune the pressure points for each system of the body, including the brain. Its 30 full color detailed diagrams provide precise illustrations of pressure points. Easily read and understood, this is a great guide for anyone to use and enjoy reflexology at home or in a professional setting. The information is so complete and in depth that any professional healthcare practitioner should add this to their reference library.
