Mediocre touch therapy

Get basic information about shiatsu and reflexology with this unimpressive program.

MB Reflexology gives users basic information about reflexology and shiatsu self-massage. Like many programs from Mystic Board, this one is heavy on advertising and delivers only mediocre content.

The program's interface is cluttered with advertising for Mystic Board and so-called home business opportunities. We always find it hard to separate the wheat from the chaff on these programs; there's a lot of text, and you're never sure at first whether you're reading an ad or a legitimate part of the program. To start, users choose whether they want to do shiatsu self-massage or reflexology. For shiatsu, users then choose what they want to improve: concentration, memory, creative thinking, and so on. The program then displays the relevant technique and its effects, along with a small illustration. For the reflexology portion, users select a physical malady that they need help with, and the program displays diagrams of reflexology points on the hands and feet, indicating which should be pressed. The online Help file provides basic instructions for the program's use. The program isn't awful, but we feel certain that better quality information about both shiatsu and reflexology is available online with less advertising. We can't say we really trust what this program has to say about either of these topics.

MB Reflexology is free. It installs desktop icons without asking and leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program with reservations; it could be useful, but there are much better options available.
