It’s been a long time coming but I am finally going to take a Foot Reflexology course, with the intention to work part-time as a certified reflexologist. This ancient healing art has been of interest to me for many years. As is often the case, it was a personal experience that made me a believer in the potential and value of this natural, non-invasive treatment.
About 15 years ago, I had my first reflexology treatment. Without telling the reflexologist what was actually my main health concern at the time (although I was definitely asked of any contra-indications to reflexology before beginning); Margeret, the reflexologist was able, through only examining and working on my feet, to pinpoint the exact source of my health problems (my adrenal glands to be specific). I was impressed and amazed.
I continued with reflexology treatments for many years after that. First to help with the adrenal exhaustion I was suffering from, later on as a stress-buster and preventative measure. I always left each session more relaxed and feeling better for having gone. My adrenals by the way, vastly improved, after a few weeks of treatments. As of the last check with my Dr. they are still A-OK.
I am very excited about finally getting the opportunity to learn this healing art for myself and in turn to help other people to become healthier and more relaxed. My course begins in a couple of weeks, then a lot of practical hours to put in (oh happy feet!) and the exam for certification to follow.
My only concern to put it bluntly; clients coming for appointments with ‘stinky’ feet. I have been assured by several reflexogists, that hasn’t been the case for them. Margeret based this on her experiences after 8 years of being a reflexologist, no bad experiences with dirty tootsies!!! If someone is interested in health and well-being, cleanliness appears to follow. For a rather squeamish person like me, that’s what I needed to hear.
I am including some information from Wikipedia to check out re: reflexology at the bottom of this post, if you’d like to read more. This is obviously a topic of interest with many, many people….I had a lot of sites to chose from. Maybe you will decide to pursue a treatment or two. Or if you have already had treatments or perhaps you are a reflexologist, it would be great if you could share your experiences with Veggie….readers. I will keep you posted as the course progresses. 🙂
