One guiding principle I have worked from is to always pay attention to my inner voice; the part of me that ‘knows’. Those messages come to me when I am deeply relaxed, usually when receiving reflexology or about to fall asleep. And, believe me, the instructions always surprise me and always involve taking a chance.
Last week I had one of those communications as I was waking up. As is customary, I paid attention. I don’t always do what I’m being told (hah!), but I always give the idea serious consideration.
After a lot of deliberation, I have decided I must cancel the 2021 Therapeutic Hand & Foot Reflexology Professional Certification program. I was ever hopeful and optimistic about gathering a group of excited and inspired people together this year, but alas, it seems that the nightmare named COVID had other plans. A year into this pandemic and things don’t look any better.
So many massage therapists interested in attending this year were forced to shutter their practices for a good portion of 2020 and subsequently found themselves without the finances to invest in themselves and their businesses at this time. Add to that the uncertainty of this unpredictable virus and climate – well, you get it. Prospective students just feel too uncomfortable making a 10-month commitment. I understand.
I do plan to continue to offer workshops in 2021 though. Two or three-day commitments seem to be more do-able for most. If you are already a certified reflexologist or a massage therapist with a strong basic training and practice in the art, and you would like to expand the ways you can lovingly help your clients optimize their health, then please join me in this my final year of teaching reflexology.
Reflexology is so powerfully beneficial for our bodies and minds it’s impossible to list all the ways here. But first and foremost, reflexology is a very enjoyable and highly effective way to reduce stress. I’ve never had anyone get up from my table and not give me that feedback. (Personally, I’d have a session every day if I could!) Your clients will fall in love with reflexology and how good it makes them feel.
If your inner voice is compelling you to dive a little deeper into reflexology, then check out the workshops already scheduled for 2021 and keep up to date on future dates being added. Hope to see you!
As for now, I’m off to Atlanta, Georgia this weekend to show folks How to Relieve Chronic Foot Pain.
