Reducing Stress is Reflexology's Prime Benefit

What a privilege. And what an opportunity for me to review the many benefits of reflexology and ways I can take care of myself, which I shared with both audiences that came to hear about self-care. Bill’s book is one of the best I’ve seen and I recommend it! I’ll put it out so you can see for yourself.  Reflexology, in the series Idiot’s Guides, by Bill Flocco.  At
