First Put the Oxygen Mask on Yourself!

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!

Be Kind to Your Kidneys

If you’ve ever been for an acupuncture session you know that Chinese medicine places great emphasis on the health of the kidneys. That’s because the kidneys are said to store Jing Essence (pre-heaven essence), “original qi”, the energetic blueprint that we inherit from our ancestors. The allopathic equivalent to original qi would be our DNA. It’s what we’re handed, the cards we’re dealt at birth, our life force – not to be squandered or abused mindlessly. Next month is National Kidney Awareness Month – a good time to appreciate these organs (and while we’re at it, the other structures of the urinary system) that control the composition of the body’s internal environment. Contact clients now and suggest that they receive weekly reflexology sessions throughout March to support and revitalize these important structures.

Invite Us Over!

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.
