intent of my Reflexology Course is to: provide
the highest quality training in Reflexology Zone Therapy.
Prepare students to take the American Reflexology Certification
Board's exam. (ARCB) The primary goal of my course is
to train the career-minded individual, and offer education
that will provide for an employable, responsible and
accountable person, able to perform therapeutic reflexology
work in a variety of settings.
I believe that reflexology therapy is a valuable tool
in the holistic approach to health care and wellness,
and that the practitioners of therapeutic reflexology
must understand the human body and it functions, and
be able to apply this knowledge in practical situations.
(A prerequisite of a Basic Anatomy/Physiology course
is recommended, but not required.)
Reflexology, as we know it today, is highly respected
as one of the oldest effective therapeutic techniques
known to humanity. One of the more significant and encouraging
trends in health care today is the increased emphasis
placed on the prevention of disease. Reflexology therapy
improves circulation, helps to lower blood pressure,
improves the immune system and stimulates the relaxation
response, which is why reflexology is highly successful
as an allied health care modality. During the past several
years, the demand for therapeutic reflexologist has
grown rapidly, and as a result, so has the demand for
trained therapists. A career in the fields of reflexology
therapy is an exciting opportunity for an individual
to make a significant contribution to society.

Bio: My training in Reflexology was a tremendous
learning experience and an eye opener to holistic health
care methods. I earned my certification in 1990. Since
then my private practice, Treat
Your Feet, has grown steadily. My Reflexology education
continues by attending a variety of workshops. I studied
with Sandi Rogers from Australia on Advanced Reflexology
(Bio-Mechanics), Geraldine Tay from Malaysia on The Rwo
Shur Method on Foot Reflexology, Bill Runquist from California
on Foot Mobilization & Assessment, Inge Dougans from
South Africa on Reflexology & Meridian Therapy. I
attended a 3 day workshop on Integrating Feet Hands and
Ears Reflexology presented by Bill Flocco from California
and most recently attended 5 workshops through the International
Institute of Reflexology with Dwight Byers and his staff
of teachers, George Balut, Vicki Heppe & Lillian Tibshraeny.
I am a Charter Member of the Maine and international Council
of Reflexologists, Reflexology Association of America,
and I earned my National Certification in 1992 from the
American Reflexology Certification Board in California.
I have lectured and done workshops for many organizations
such as: The University of Maine, Augusta, Common Grand
Fair, the Maine Chapter of Massage Therapy, CMP, Edward
Jones Investments, 12 Step programs, J.M. Coombs- Freeport
Employees, Jaycee's Augusta Chapter, Maine General Hospital
and three Nursing Homes. For 5 years, I was the faculty Reflexologist
for Fuller Circles, School for Therapeutic Massage in
Waterville, Maine. One of my goals for the future is to
introduce Reflexology into the work place.
