All the Answers (or, Just About All of Them)

The other day I told you about one of my favorite books, “The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook”, by Clair Davies. I have 3 copies of the book because I use it often and don’t want to always have to carry it with me in case I need it. Yes, it’s that useful.

Well, move over Clair Davies, there’s a new book in town.

It happened recently when Martha, a former student and colleague, slid a package across the table at the coffee shop and said, “I think you’ll like this”.

I opened the wrapping and found a book.

I looked at it as Martha explained how fascinating the material was and how much she’d learned reading it.

It’s not that I don’t like reading. I read all the time, but it’s mostly manuals and workbooks on reflexology and bodywork. This book had no maps, and for a moment I thought that it would be hard for me to find the time.

Well, the time came on a recent trip. I was going to New York City to graduate my latest and greatest, a legion of brand new Foot Reflexologists.

I consider myself to be the Johnny Appleseed of reflexology. Since I only have two hands and there are only so many hours in a day, my mission is to teach others – like planting seeds so that the world will one day have reflexology sprouting at every corner.

Up at 3am to catch the 6am flight, I thought – this book doesn’t stand a chance against the nap that I feel coming on right now.

I should have known better. Martha is a very thoughtful person – as in both – kind and deep thinking. She wouldn’t give me a book that wasn’t the kind that would answer all the questions to the universe.

At least that’s what I now think, because this book does that. (Okay, I may exaggerate… but only a little.)

In addition to giving the answers to what makes us tick… if you want to know what reflexology can do, how reflexology can help, why we find reflexology so beneficial, not just to our clients but to ourselves (as in when we give a session, we get a session), I highly recommend this book. I’m not quite finished it, but so far it seems like it does, in fact, have all the answers.

Not only did it keep me awake as the airplane droned through the sky at 6am, 7am and 8am, but I read it in the cab and on the street until I got to my office door. I can’t wait to finish it because then I can start to read it again.

The book is “The Brain That Changes Itself” by Norman Doidge, MD. You can go to your favorite bookstore or book site or click here to go to

Thanks Martha.
