Many years ago, Simon & Schuster published Laura’s best-selling book, Feet First: A Guide to Foot Reflexology, now in its 21st printing and in the hands of over half a million people around the world. As the leading expert in Reflexology, the producer of “Live with Regis and Kelly” invited her to be on the show where, over several appearances, she became known as “The Foot Lady.”
Sometime later Regis Philbin lay in his hospital bed, dreading the kidney stone operation scheduled for the next day. Remembering Laura, his wife Joy called, desperate for any relief Laura could give Regis, who was terrified and wracked with pain.
Laura gave him reflexology and had him visualize the stones dissolving. The next morning, as they prepared him for surgery, his nurses were flabbergasted to discover that the kidney stones had dissolved overnight, his pain gone, saving him from having to go “under the knife.”
