A Day At The Spa – Feng Shui/Reflexology

(Special Interest/Health)


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: D     Programs: B- each



Delta has issued a series of DVDs dubbed A Day At The Spa, each with a different theme.  The two we are looking at are on Feng Shui and Reflexology.  The former is not exactly something you experience at a spa, unless the spa is designed that way in advance.  It may be a stretch, but the program is not bad, though it has a tendency it cannot avoid to run on.  Unless you want to believe in the reorganization philosophy of the show and how it does and does not see good and bad energy, you will get bored quickly.


Reflexology may first seem like some simple foot massage instructional, but the show actually gets into how there is an actual science and each part of each foot is connected to every other part of the body.  When all was said and done, it was much better a program than expected, and certainly is something certain spas would offer, in keeping with the theme of the DVD series.  While anything about feet are ignored or turned into some kind of silly fetish, the truth is that they are extremely ignored and under-cared for in most people and in financial prospectus likely raising health costs in millions of dollars.  Add the cheap shoes, misfitting shoes and too many persons general attitude in not taking care of much of anything about themselves can only mean long-term disaster for people who are so passive.


The full frame 1.33 X 1 image is shot on PAL tape and looks fuzzy at times, but is still recent and it shows.  The PCM CD Stereo has no surround information, but is better than Dolby Digital 2.0 would be in this situation.  The combination is sufficient for such a series and the price is not bad.  There are more shows in the series, but neither of these programs have extras.  We’ll hopefully see more installments down the line.  For now, these are worth seeing if you are interested in either subject.
