Labor Day seems to be a time of change. Today the fair opens, the temperature is cooler and Fall is near.
Some people use today as a chill day, while for others, it is the last whoop-lah of Summer– either is a good idea.
For me, I become aware of a certain melancholy that I must address. I have Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and I have to watch to not panic-ahead toward Winter. I truly want to get outside this Fall and enjoy myself.
What does this have to do with reflexology? For one, if you have SAD, you have ( in me) a friend who can relate. Stress is stress and SAD certainly qualifies. Reflexology embraces you in relaxation. You are welcome here.
Sometimes, it is hard to rest. There are so many distractions and interfering moments. Even in the daylight, we need to rest so we can begin again. Reflexology is a refreshing break to re-group. It is amazing how revitalizing a thirty minute session can be–peaceful, calm, and healthy. Why delay?
I picked up a few limbs in the driveway and started back in the house to leave for work. Then, I saw it–a snake in the grass! Being moderately terrified of snakes, the adrenaline rush hit, pounding heart and all. It was “fight or flight.” I ran to get the hoe.
Reminding myself to breathe, I donned my gloves (I don’t know why–I sure wasn’t going to touch it.) and went back to fight. The snake had not moved. I whacked it; it did not move. I whacked it several times. It was already dead. Oh. I picked it up with the hoe and disposed of it. I put everything up, washed my hands (snake germs from afar?) and went to do reflexology.
My adrenaline had not totally dissipated when I got to the office. I turned on the diffuser with lavender, worked my adrenal reflexes on both feet and laughed as I told me tale to others. Later, I walked two miles. I went to the C0-Op and got some snake repellent.
Sometimes, life can stress us out but it is bad when stress becomes chronic. Sometime stress is like a dead snake, much ado about nothing, but the adrenaline level still rises. Reflexology is an active way to help manage your stress. ” Reflexology–where stress meets its match”
Summer is almost here. So, we have no stress, right? Perhaps vacations help, but yard work and other changes of summer can get a bit stressful. Reflexology is the relaxation technique for all seasons! It is like a mini-vacation! Come slip off those flip-flops and chill! You can bring your own mint-julep.
It is a rainy Sunday so my mind has time to ponder. I wonder how to get the word out to our community about the unique benefits of reflexology. I love new clients because they are often amazed by how good reflexology feels. Word-of-mouth is surely my best advertisement!
Reflexology is not just for sick people or people with hurting feet. Goodness, it supports in so many ways. I have done reflexology on athletes, pregnant women and little ones. Over the years, I have done doctors and poets, attorneys and hospice patients. The common denominator is STRESS!! The happiest of us has some stress to handle. Reflexology is a relaxation technique with a winning record!
Doctors recommend stress reduction. Ministers recommend stress reduction. Counselors recommend stress reduction. So, why have you not called?
Hey, take off your shoes and let’s do feet! Reflexology, that is. It is a healthy way to get over the winter mulligrubs–however you spell it. It is a good time to get out and take care of yourself. Mail your taxes and come celebrate with me.
A reflexology gift certificate is an incredible shower present. It not only shows you care, it shows you are supportive. At eight months or so, all my pregnant clients love me! It relaxes in a comfortable, smoothing way.
My youngest client was only twelve hours old. Gentle reflexology is calming for fussy ones. It can be enjoyed by older children as well. Rubbing their feet at bedtime is such a treat or bring them to see me.
