More Reflexology Awareness is Needed in Manitoba

I work in a profession that is not widely known or endorsed here in Canada. While research, inclusion and acceptance is abundant in the other parts of the world, including the US. Why does Canada stay so far behind?

The IBS Network in the UK promotes reflexology on their website to offer options to people that have proven to help alleviate symptoms of IBS and increase a better quality of life. They are not alone in their pointing people to reflexology but just another example of how complementary therapies are integrated into their health care.

My practice is growing every day and I refer to other reflexology therapists that are still taking new clients in hopes that a day doesn’t come when I have to turn someone away.

In a few short years, there will not be enough of us to cover every person seeking our services.

ADHD – Over The Counter Alternatives

I just read an email that lead me to an article from Cognitune Smarter Health

This articles covers the dangers of Adderall and what the alternatives are to help with ADHD. In addition to the ADHD epidemic that is covering North America, students and workaholics are using this same dangerous drug to help with brain fog and cognitive function in otherwise healthy people.

Please take the time to read this article and share with loved ones that there are natural ways to balance the body and help alleviate symptoms.

Reflexology and Concussions

concussion
I have had and continue to have people call and come in to see me as a last resort for past concussion injuries. Doctors are prescribing multiple medications for pain control, and also now recommending Botox treatments. The dependency people have on these things also causes increased stress and they hope that medications can be weaned. This is rarely the case. Every treatment has its side effects, deciding if the side effects are worth it, is a personal choice. It is true that people are getting relief from their medical treatment plans and can go back to having a better life. I am here for those who are seeking out a way to get relief with a reduction in medication or become free of medications.

Graded 1-3 in severity, Grade 1 is considered minor with no loss of consciousness and symptoms lasting only about 15 minutes. Grade 2, is moderate and symptoms can last longer than 15 minutes and there was still no loss of consciousness. Grade 3 concussions are major, which include loss of consciousness (even for a few seconds). It may take up to a week to return to normal activities after a Grade 1 or 2 concussion. Greater care must be taken with a Grade 3 concussion, preventing future concussions and making sure you get proper rest to help heal. This includes no sports, no homework, no screens (TV, phones, tablets, laptops and video games)

There are acupressure points that can be used to help alleviate concussion symptoms. These points in combination with a traditional reflexology session can have significant results for some. As always, everyone reacts differently with reflexology and first and foremost, there is no guarantee that you would be completely free from pain or medications. Everyone’s time frame for results also varies and results can be seen in as little as one session or it can take months to see significant results, however, small changes can be noted showing that the body is doing its thing to try and get you back in order.

I can tell you, so far, I have one person who has gone back to work full time with no significant set backs to date, but still uses complementary therapies and physio exercises to maintain her status. Another client has had great success and is still on pain medications, but to a lesser degree, and calls reflexology “life changing”.

The acupressure points to look at for concussions are:
GV20
GB20
GB8
LU7
LI4
PC6
ST3
LI3
SP6
K1

Using these points in this order works its way from head to foot. Followed up with a traditional reflexology session will boost your potential for greater and quicker results.

If you are suffering from a concussion, contact our office to book your consultation and see if reflexology is the answer for you.
