In Focus Reflexology: Your Personal Guide by Tina Chantrey is everything I was looking for in an introductory book on the subject and practice. Chantrey does a great job of keeping everything simple for a true novice such as myself while also offering information for those looking to work their way into doing this as a CAM practice (such as getting insurance, what to look for with new clients, etc). So this book will serve anyone well who is not already a fully operating practitioner, and frankly as a review for seasoned reflexologists it would probably work well to keep the basics front of mind.
