In "Self-Applied Massage of the Feet" Dr. Roger Jahnke explains how to do self-applied massage to the feet.

Imagery is a flow of thoughts you can see, hear, feel, smell, or taste. An image is an inner representation of your experience or your fantasies--a way your mind codes, stores, and expresses information. In "What is Imagery, and How Does it Work?" Martin L. Rossman M.D. presents extensive information explaining what kinds of illnesses can be treated with imagery, and how it fits into the larger context of healing. Consider imagery as a means of transformation and liberation from distortions in this realm that may unconsciously direct your life and shape your health.
