Reflexology Community Group Updates

reflexology-chartAccording to Wikipedia, Reflexology is “…involving application of pressure to the feet and hands … based on a system of zones and reflex areas … with the premise that such work affects a physical change to the body.” Whether true or not, this group offers an opportunity to “Detox” by enjoying a free foot or hand massage. We will learn together by watching a video and practicing techniqu
es.

 

We are “Learning Reflexology Together!”

This group met several more times until the holidays and winter weather cramped our style, and our ability to meet. By our last meeting we had explored techniques for the feet, hands, and face. We were also given the opportunity to try a variety of oils that one of our members had on hand.

I am excited to meet with the ladies once again on February 13th. Hopefully we will be able to remember most of what we learned before our long break and take up where we left off! If we don’t, then we will certainly enjoy Re-Learning Reflexology together.  Newbies are always welcome and we look forward to helping you to enjoy the learning experience. Call me, Joan, at 775/972-3117 to get more information.

October 24

Our first meeting, October 24th, was a time to take care of the do’s and don’ts, shoulds and shouldn’ts of reflexology. We were able to get a “feel” for how to use touch and the amount of pressure to use when practicing this particular type of massage by watching YouTube demonstrations of facial and foot massage. We practiced exploring texture changes in the tissue of our own hands and referenced the noted locations to the internal body parts indicated on the hand chart; spent time gently holding and rubbing the feet of others; and learned and practiced the thumb walking technique. Helpful handouts were distributed and group members will be practicing facial reflexology during the two weeks between the first and second meetings.  We have a very brave group and every one of the ladies stepped up, ready to practice the real thing — sooooo……. next week the socks come off!
