Review quote

"This book is carefully thought out, detailed and practical with all relevant safety issues considered. Whereas there is insuffient research in RZT to describe this text as a guide for evidence-based practice, the author has sought to give a scientific rationale for such an approach coupled with evidence available to date from case reports... Clearly this book is aimed at midwives and practising reflexologists, although it would be of interest to an expectant mother who might want to understand what RZT can offer her in maternity care." Focus on Complementary and? Alternative Therapy, June 2010 "This book's strength comes from combining information about reflexology treatments, case studies and links to relevant research... very thorough in the explanations related to body organs and systems." International Therapist Magazine, April 2011
