Last week, I published a post on the How to Relieve Chronic Foot Pain workshop, and stated that there were only two trainings available still this year, one in Memphis, Tennessee and one in Gainesville, Florida. It turns out I spoke too soon. . . . → Read More: Late-Breaking News for Canadians and Northern Americans!

Some people claim that of all our body parts, our feet tend to suffer the most. I don’t know if that’s true, but I do know that there’s nothing worse than sore feet; and sore feet are a guarantee if neglected. Our feet are our trusty servants, providing a foundation upon which we “take a stand” and allowing us to move forward in life. As a reflexologist, I often hear the statement “My feet are killing me!” Perhaps that painful complaint would be more accurately stated with, “I’m killing my feet”. We stuff them into poorly designed, ill-fitted shoes and then proceed to stand on them hour after hour without rest. We pay little attention to the fact that the feet carry our whole body weight and who we are every day of our lengthy existence here on earth. When you treat your feet well, they tend to return the favor. For that reason I have dedicated my private practice to putting “feet first”. Because I am a board-certified reflexologist, people often mistake my qualifications for that of a “foot doctor”. . . . → Read More: When Feet Take a Beating

In other words, people who were ready to take charge. . . . → Read More: Sick and Tired of Headaches?

Are you on the fence about registering for the 2014 Therapeutic Hand & Foot Reflexology Professional Certification? Are you telling yourself, “I’m not ready yet!” As my good friend Ron B. used to say, “What are you waiting for kid?” If you’re reading this invitation to join us this year, then remember that amazing opportunities often present themselves way before we think we’re ready. Make the decision now to go for it – to follow your heart and dreams – even if no part of you feels “ready”.

When I was flying up to spend the Christmas hols with my family, I listened to the airline attendant’s ubiquitous warning, “In the case of emergency, an oxygen mask will drop down in front of you. First put the oxygen mask on yourself, before attending to those traveling with you.” I realized that this is good advice for bodyworkers also. . . . → Read More: First Put the Oxygen Mask on Yourself!
