A guide to reflexology treatments combined with complementary therapies to restore energetic balance, relieve pain, and support healing.

Expanding the practice of reflexology beyond the feet and hands, Ewald Kliegel illustrates how to precisely and quickly treat different emotional and physical disorders with an integrated combination of reflexology and complementary therapies. Applying the fundamental principles of reflexology to the entire body, he provides more than 30 full-color maps of reflex zones from head to toe, including reflex zone systems of the ears, mouth, tongue, fingernails, and torso.

The author details reflexology techniques for each reflex zone and discusses how to incorporate essential oils and gemstones during active touch and reflexology sessions, including the benefits of crystal massage for post-stroke recovery. Drawing on international advancements in reflexology, including the work of craniosacral reflexologist Martine Faure-Alderson, Russian researcher Alexander Kachan, Chinese biologist Zhang Yingquing, and Korean physician Tae Woo Yoo, Kliegel examines how to integrate Yin-Yang massage strokes, metacarpal reflexology techniques, Korean Hand treatments, and craniosacral massage principles into reflexology treatments to restore energetic balance, relieve pain, and support healing.

Providing a truly holistic and integrative approach to reflexology, Kliegel reveals many different hands-on paths to healing that embrace the energetic interconnections of mind and body.

Review quote

". . . a beautifully illustrated book . . . thoroughly researched. It is an excellent resource for the different types of reflexology showing the body as a hologram." * Martine Faure-Alderson, D.O., author of Total Reflexology * "Holistic Reflexology presents in detail a large number of new possibilities to take advantage of the virtues of reflexology. Not to be missed by anyone who already knows and appreciates the value of reflexology or by those who want to discover this wonderful technique!" * Christopher Vasey, N.D., author of The Acid-Alkaline Diet for Optimum Health * "Ewald Kliegel's work is a wonderful exploration into the world of our microcosms and reflex zones. Holistic Reflexology is an invaluable resource for anyone seeking to understand what their body is trying to communicate with an itch, ache, pain, or blemish, and how it may be balanced. I highly recommend this comprehensive text for healing arts practitioners, their clients, or anyone wanting to better know and support the health of their body." * Bridgette Shea, L.Ac., MAcOM, author of Handbook of Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda * I always like the idea of using diluted essential oils on reflexology and acupressure points. This book provides both, using helpful charts and color illustrations showing these points. Specific techniques are not just for working feet, ears, face, but also the spine. Diagnostic tools, such as touch, visual assessment, muscle testing, and energetic methods, determine which of the 21 essential oils and 64 gemstones to use. I found the Eastern and European evolution of reflexology especially interesting. Kliegel, a massage therapist and naturopath, teaches European seminars. * American Herb Association Quarterly *
