Oh! I so love reflexology...
Nothing better after a hard day's work to relax and completely unwind..
And it can also tell you where energy blockages are in your body - if you study a good reflexology foot map (check http://www.omfeet.com/ for a good one), it will link your foot to the whole of your body.
Share the chart with your husband/wife/friends and you can treat each other!!

How can this stuff be taken seriously when people can qualify as practitioners in a matter of a very short space of time? Surely the best advice for people with health issues would be to go see a qualified doctor.

There is no substitute for evidence-based medicine. Although a good foot massage may be enjoyable, you will never be able to prove any of your claims of "energy blockages" being treated by foot pressure, or any direct linkage to organs of the body from spots on the feet. The pseudoscience crowd loves to talk about the body's "energy" and how they can somehow manipulate it. P.T. Barnum would be proud of you all.

To the uninformed Shaine and LMT I say the following: provide the research money and we could prove the link between the the relexes in the foot and hand and the whole body. I guarantee pain relief in my practice, i.e. if you don't get relief, you don't pay. Does the medical profession do this? I believe it is a matter of integrity not to take people's money if you have not provided the service, and in my practice it is extremely rare. I have 100's of cases where severe back pain, sciatica, etc were relieved in minutes, and I only worked on the hands and/or feet. And in a large percentage of the cases the clients were highly sceptical like you,and they get the same results, proving it has nothing to do with "faith" in the system. Were you aware that the father of modern American reflexolgy was an MD? For more information, I can be reached at vitaman101@gmail.com. I practice in the Dallas, Tx area.

The moral of that story is "The proof is in the Pudding". Reflexology gets results. Ask someone that has resolved prostate issues without meds and their side affects. Or someone whose blood pressure is continuing normal after years of meds. Or someone who is no longer clinically depressed after 30 years. Or someone whose gout has disappeared. Reflexology doesn't replace the doctors/meds... but it helps to get the body to "shape up and act right".

A great online foot reflexology course is offered through www.nirvanamassagecenational.com . They have other online continuing education courses like aromatherapy and geriatric massage. Perfect for massage therapists looking to get renewal CEUs that are NCBTMB approved.

No wonder why my friend has been a regular visitor at Belle Vie Day Spa for her foot refloxology. She always tells me how much relieved she feels after having a single session of massage.

She's playing "Hide the Salami" with whoever is "massaging her.
