Dr. Faure-Alderson is a pioneer in the field of craniosacral reflexology, one of many topics she discusses in her book, Total Reflexology: The Reflex Points for Physical, Emotional, and Psychological Healing.
This book has been described by both her colleagues and readers as a groundbreaking perspective on the field of reflexology and general health and wellness.
A New Approach to Reflexology
Total Reflexology: The Reflex Points for Physical, Emotional, and Psychological Healing (Healing Arts Press) has been described as “taking reflexology to the next level.” In this book on reflexology, Dr. Martine Faure-Alderson incorporates alternative therapies such as acupuncture, naturopathy, homeopathy, and the chakras system to provide readers with a thorough perspective about the human body.
Dr. Faure-Alderson uses the foot as the map to the rest of the body and all the body’s major systems, combining both her physician’s background with her knowledge of alternative therapies. Using her holistic understanding, she links physical conditions of the body with the corresponding mental and psychological issues.
Specific areas of interest included in the book are:
- detailed discussions about the foot, which Dr. Faure-Alderson has remapped in a comprehensive and concise manner;
- the emotional reactions to the treatment of physical conditions and the best way to handle these reactions;
- discussions on every major body system and how it can be related to the foot;
- discussions on how to integrate the chakra system into a reflexology treatment; and
- 25 well-illustrated and colored foot diagrams, expertly mapped to show with accuracy the pressure points.
Craniosacral Reflexology Therapy
Craniosacral reflexology is a holistic complementary therapy that supports the body’s natural healing abilities. Dr. Faure-Alderson is a pioneer in this healing field, and incorporates her alternative and scientific understanding of the human body into its practice.
Dr. Faure-Alderson’s craniosacral reflexology involves three protocols—basic CSR, cardiovascular, and lymphatic protocols. Using these protocols, the craniosacral reflexologist works to get rid of any dysfunction that the patient is experiencing.
Total Reflexology includes her latest work and research in the field of craniosacral therapy, as well as the use of cerebrospinal fluid in reflexology.
Manual for Self-Healing
Dr. Faure-Alderson’s Total Reflexology is a comprehensive and first-of-its-kind book that builds on the use of foot reflex points. It is suitable for professional reflexologists who are already working in the field who wish to learn how to incorporate additional modalities, like craniosacral therapy, chakra system work, and additional holistic approaches into their therapy sessions.
This manual is also well-suited for anyone interested in methods of stimulating their own body’s natural healing processes. Total Reflexology: The Reflex Points for Physical, Emotional, and Psychological Healing makes a perfect complement to everyone’s library.
