Reflexology – where are you going?
Let’s be honest and admit that, at some time in our careers as reflexologists, we have asked ourselves the question, where do we go from here?
Alice asked the same question to the cat, ‘It depends on where you want to go’, the cat said. ‘I don’t much care’, said Alice. ‘Then it doesn’t matter which way you go’, came the reply.
(Apologies to Lewis Carroll)
This problem also applies to our lives. We find ourselves constantly playing catch up, tangled in the web of our day today affairs, running as fast as we can just to stay in the same place. Although it is quite possible to extricate ourselves from this web, it means taking steps into unknown territories without have the security of safe landing places. It is this fear which prevents many from taking that first step.
In contrast, it is a far easier task to make changes to the way we perceive reflexology, requiring only that we step out of the box of habit and mediocrity (without even having the advantage of the wisdom of a cat).
Reflexology has many layers and wheels within wheels which are there waiting to be revealed. It is only possible to explore these layers if we have the keys to unlock the hidden world of reflexology. My mission has been to provide these keys.
An insight into the conundrums and complexities of reflexology will flow naturally from an understanding of the subjects that are taught at my seminars.
The subjects of the seminar include:
The meaning of a painful reflex.
The rule of the reflex
What is a disturbed reflex?
Without a knowledge of these essential factors, any reflexology assessment will be very limited.
Additional new protocol
An exciting additional protocol will be presented at this seminar which has not been demonstrated in the UK before.
This includes specific non-traumatic applications to the neck and abdominal areas, to be applied before working the reflexes of the feet.
This will be of particular interest to those who are massage therapists, and a very valuable method of self-help for those who are not.
A clinical discovery has confirmed that specific manual abdominal application causes the release of stem cells throughout the body. I feel that the additional contact on the neck may enhance this process further. The application will be demonstrated in more depth during the optional, additional study day.
My Best wishes
