Wondering

It's official. I'm a certified reflexologist. :-D Now to build my business...

So I'm wondering... have any of you out there been required to learn hands and ears as a part of your initial certification process? Do you think it has been helpful to you? Are you integrating hands and ears into your practice? Do your clients ask for hands and ears? What's your favorite body part to work?

I've learned the basics of ear reflexology, now, and I LOVE them. Ears are great! So nurturing, balancing, intense! My certification exam date is getting closer and closer, and I can't wait. I've been hired by a gym to be their reflexologist, so I'll be working as soon as I pass my exam. So great! :-)

If you're interested/willing to take a little 10 question poll, please visit my LJ! I'm doing some research on people's thoughts on natural health and beauty products.

Thanks!

I'm 1/3 of the way done with my Advanced Reflexology Class! The class is excellent, and I adore my teacher. She is a total sunbeam, and I feel completely lucky to be learning from her. I'll earn my certification at the 200 hour level by mid August! I'm hoping to sit my National Boards in September. Making reflexology a career is a dream I am going to make come true!

Training

Where have you gotten your training in Reflexology?
Was it a 2 week blurb in massage school, a weekend seminar, an actual school dedicated to reflexology, did you train under a reflexologist, or ????
How well do you think you were trained in whichever aspect that you learned?

Currently I'm a massage therapist, and I want to learn more about reflexology.

Thanks :)

spinal twists

Apr. 9th, 2007 | 05:01 pm

I was at a yoga workshop a while back, and the teacher was talking about the benefits of doing deep spine work and how safely working the back could greatly benefit the entire body. He began talking about a phenomena he called the healing crisis and how back work could greatly affect people and help people work towards deep healing and balance. Then he said he's known many people who try desperately to avoid such a healing crisis and shirk away from any and all intense (not bad) back sensations... and when working with these people, it was often helpful to slyly lead them towards deep healing by taking them through gentle spinal twists and avoiding the intense back sensations all together.

So this led me to wonder about the use of the spinal twist on the medial edges of the feet while doing reflexology. I've had a few people who did not want to have any kind of healing crisis (any healing??), and quite frankly, I wondered why they had even bothered to come to me at all. For example, the person who wanted me to completely avoid working on her kidney areas because she had once had kidney stones and didn't want to rock the kidney boat. So I wonder, would focusing more time on spinal twists and spine walking help more for a person like this? Seems like it could.

Yes, sometimes healing means admitting an area needs to be healed, and that can be scary... and therein lies the crisis. But isn't it worse to live with an open wound? Let it scab! Let it itch! Let it heal! Just because one might experience a moment of crisis doesn't mean one is destined to live an unbalanced and wound filled life. On the contrary. Recognize and rectify, I say. :-)

Lalalalala...

It's been very quiet in the reflexology room, lately. No worries. I hope you body workers out there are all doing well and feeling some joy. :-)

I'm wondering what books any of you found invaluable and highly informative in the area of reflexology. Care to share? I'm wanting to get my hands on Foot Analysis: The Foot Path to Self-Discovery by Avi Grinberg. If anyone out there has read it or heard about it, I'd love to hear what you have to say.

Be well, and happy rubbing! ;-)
