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.

Most reflexologists have been asked at some time how to get rid of hard, dry, cracked callouses on the heels. Here’s an easy and effective one that I have used: . . . → Read More: NO More Rough Heels!

It seems to me that more and more people I run into – adults and children alike – are fighting allergic reactions to pollen. When you realize that the amount of pollen is accountably higher now than it was ten years ago, it comes as no surprise. According to sources, there are two main reasons for the rise in pollen counts in the air: 1. The first is climate change. Rising global temperatures and humidity levels result in earlier tree, grass and weed pollination that lasts longer into the year. As CO2 levels increase, plants produce more pollen too – three to four times more. (Allergists think the pollen itself may actually be more potent.) 2. Pollen is a fine powdery substance, typically yellow, discharged from the male part of flowering plants. In other words, pollen is the sperm of the plant. Those granular particles are looking for female trees and in the absence of such partners (Many US cities plant fewer female plants in public places now because their flowers and seeds are “messier” to manage.), they well, settle for the human nose. Here’s what happens when those determined pollen particles find their way into your nostrils. . . . → Read More: Easing Respiratory Allergy Symptoms Naturally

This last week I gave sessions to two people who have been absent from my table for a few months now. My heart melted listening to their comments afterwards: “I forgot how much I love foot reflexology!” “That was the deepest experience of myself I have every had!” “I needed that so much!” “That was unbelievable!” That got me thinking of my own experiences receiving reflexology and the numerous benefits that I, and others, get from this profound modality. In an article that I wrote for Massage Magazine I outlined the three main reasons people seek out reflexology. I realize that for many others though, their love for reflexology is motivated more from their experience of being in that altered state that the alpha and theta brainwave patterns deliver. Here’s what I’ve been privileged to witness: . . . → Read More: So Many Reasons to Receive Reflexology!

Forty-five million adult Americans live with chronic headaches. The International Headache Society lists 200 causes! For people suffering with headaches, one of the most challenging parts is identifying the root cause, because without knowing that, it’s simply a “hit and miss” game to treat this debilitating symptom. To make it a bit easier, the International Headache Society has broken the causes down into three main categories: Primary, Secondary and Cranial Neuralgia/Primary Facial Pain/Other. (FYI, I make it a little easier in the Say Good-bye to Headaches class.) . . . → Read More: Sick and Tired of Living with Headaches?
