Holistic Healing DVD Review: Reflexology and The Living, Loving Woman
Reflexology is an effective natural healing practice that can relieve, support healing, and prevent several ailments and symptoms by applying pressure to areas on the foot.
Ann Gillanders is a pioneering reflexologist, bringing to the world several books and videos exploring all aspects of the science of reflexology.
Her latest DVD, Reflexology and The Living, Loving Woman, is a learning guide for viewers wanting to know how to do basic reflexology treatments.

I have Neuropathy in my feet. I have the charts on reflexology, but can’t find where to apply the pressure and it is also hard for me to do it to myself being heavy. My hubby is useless for that and won’t try, thanks.
Most enlightening review, clear and concise. Exactly what resonates with me and I can’t wait to get the DVD. I’ve been intuitively guided for several months towards learning Reflexology and along with already practicing Reiki in service to others, I know I am being guided to incorporate Reflexology as an essential and wonderful part of my metaphysical ‘tool kit’ for myself and for helping others. Thanks Sandy and Kirk! Would be glad to write again after using the DVD. Love and Light.
You are so welcome! Yes, please do come back and share with us your experience once you view the Reflexology and The Living, Loving Woman DVD. What a lovely blend mixing Reiki and Reflexology. And thanks for sharing.
Hi Linda, sometimes that is what girlfriends are for! You might want to get this DVD, get a group of girls together and all support each other.
The article was great. I’m in the process of learning reflexology, and appreciate the charts. I respect the entire Holistic approach.
