An Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) tear, one of the most common knee injuries to occur, regularly lands people in the surgical theatre. I recently read the abstract on a five-month study substituting manual therapy for surgical treatment. The study resulted in complete restitution of the ACL. Very exciting and promising to people who prefer . . . → Read More: Healing the Knee Without Surgery

When teaching Thai Foot Reflexology, I am often asked why we start sessions on the left foot with women and on the right with men.

I’m often asked the difference between Thai Foot Reflexology and the conventional form practiced in the west.

A year ago, I created an in-depth, experiential teacher-training program in reflexology with two of my exceptional grads, Shea Knight and Jenny Runde. I created the program for two reasons: first because I was forced to admit that there is a limit to how much I can do on my own (and stay sane!), and secondly, I recognized that many people, for various reasons, cannot travel to study. Expanding the roster of teachers and our ability to travel seemed the obvious solution to wanting to accommodate the growing number of requests that come in for qualified training in reflexology. We’re currently working on our 2014 teaching schedules, so if you are interested in learning reflexology… well then, invite us over! As the host, you will be our “point” person; you will be responsible for organizing the logistics (with our guidance) and in return will be compensated for your time and efforts.

But don’t take my word for it. Read for yourself. After all the “proof is in the pudding”! . . . → Read More: What the Clients Have to Say
