Dear Oma,

My friends' mother was told of your wonderful success with healing through reflexology. She has breast cancer (advanced) and is wondering if you have had any luck helping the body to cure or overcome breast cancer.

Radiation and chemo has not helped her in the past and she is finally ready to open her mind up to the healing mind/body. She is in her early 50's. Do you have any advice for us? If you have had success with cancers, and she is interested, would you see her or perhaps refer us to someone closer to us, in Wisconsin?

Thank you dearly,

Dear Oma,
I am currently a nursing student and my final aim is to become a midwife.I had 2 days of reflexology and I discovered a wounderful wealth being when my college friend practiced on my feet. I would like to do a course on reflexology and I wondered if you could give me some tips and tell me more about it.
Thank you so much

Dear Oma,

How nice to see you with Mother Caspari and your son Tom today at lunch. I came back from lunch and decided to visit your web-site while the thought of your loving presence was still fresh. Your web-site is well done and inspiring, and now you have my email address where it may be most helpful for you to have it. God bless you, if we get over to San Juan Island we will certainly stop by for a visit. Love, Mary

Dear Oma,

I have been wondering how to find you, and I am pleased that I have! You left your name and message on my answering machine some time ago, and said you would call again. I did not get a number and hoped to hear from you.

I am interested in speaking with you, meeting you in person, and receiving a treatment from you.

I very much look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,
Cynthia

Oma, I believe I am a budding reflexologist. I bought a book about foot and hand reflexology at our local Salvation Army Thrift Store. Intrigued and desirous to help my three children overcome bed-wetting, Sever's disease, and obesity. I am morbidly obese and have non-insulin dependent diabetes. Can reflexology help these diseases?

Also, I am wondering if there is a disease in the feet themselves (Sever's disease is inflamation of the growth space between the heel and the cap of bone that is not yet fused to the heel), can reflexology help?

If you would correspond with my by email, I would much appreciate it.

Hello Oma,

In my own experience and that of others I've talked to, it is the feeling of extreme anxiety and agitation that drives many back to smoking.

Reading the previous post from John in Ireland who finds that reflexology helps to relieve his stress and anxiety, I was wondering if this might not be useful to those who are working on their cigarette addiction.

All the best,
Ben

Oma, I would like to send you my heartfelt thanks for the time at your retreat where you shared your wisdom, your life’s work and your unwavering trust in our body’s healing power.

For the last eight years I have been practicing Foot-reflexzone-therapy according to the Marquart method at my practice in Germany. When it was time for me to expand my therapy and approach I decided to visit you on the unique and beautiful San Juan Islands. Here I was able, under your loving guidance, to expand my spiritual awareness. Your personal treatments with healing oils, hands and thoughts helped me to find order and strength to continue my work.

The extent to which my patients responded positively after my time with you confirms my own experience. You and your OMA method have enriched my therapeutic work and my life.

Dear Oma, I enjoyed reading your literature particularly on the reflexology. I am a kindred spirit to Laura Parker. She is an angel in disguise and my best friend. Thank you for sharing your story The Heart. I hope you don't mind but I would like to share it with some of the people in a group I belong to at our church. Your spirit is very strong and alive and I enjoy reading stories from and about people that share their lives with others. How else do we become one and learn from each other. I give thanks that you are there for Laura as she speaks very highly of you and hold you dear. Yes I would like to recieve any other information you have to share. I am just learning the importance of time to "rest" to rejuvienate oneself, physically and spiritually and to be totally honest to become more familiar with the computer is a great goal of mine. I do better face to face and touching when communicating, but Laura is showing me there is so much out there to grasp and use with this technology.

Anyway, thank you for the opportunity to ramble, and for the lovely story. Give my kindred spirit a special hug when you see her next and God Bless.

Beloved OMA, I want to thank you for the great gift you gave me when you taught me the OMA Method in 1984--thanks to you my work has become truely sacred over the years. I gave a treatment to a fellow reflexologist (not trained by you) and this was his comment: "I don't call this reflexology--I call this a Sacred Foot Ritual!"

I think that says it all!

I have been reading some of the comments from some of your readers and am excited about it all.

Let me start by saying that I have been looking for as much information of reflexology as i could find. Well, you are the first bit of information i've had access to since i left Louisiana in 1993. So now i am trying to find someone for my mother-in-law. Someone that does reflexology. We had a reflexologist in Louisiana, but now we need one here in Augusta ga. Thru your contacts can you please help us fine one as close to Augusta as possible. I would appreciate any amount of help you can offer.

Thanks in advance.
Please e-mail me on the address above with any return information.
Very greatful for your help.

Dear Fellow Healer, I too, have worked at reflexology for 20 years. What a change in peoples attitudes toward alternative healing during the passing of those years. No longer am I met with a look of bored confusion when I tell people that I practise Reflexology. It is reafirming to see actual interest in something I have truly come to believe in. I will be at the RAA convention in San Diego in May. Is there anyone on your end that will be attending? Regardless, I look forward to meeting you one day and learning more about your practise.

My sister-in-law was just telling me about her experience with a reflexologist and I want to know more about reflexology. In the area where I live, I am not aware of any qualified relexologists and would like to know enough about it to see if I would be interested in studying it. I am a 1st grade teacher but have my college degree in physical education and biology. Just enough information in my brain to know that I don't know enough about much but I am a good teacher!!! My husband and I would like to know more about this technique because we love helping other people as well as ourselves to natural ways to improve the quality of our lives!

Hi Oma

After a few years of dabbling in Reflexology this is now my path. I am currently in the middle of my studies at the Western Australian School of Reflexology. My teacher is Lynn Hatswell. I'm very passionate about Reflexlogy and your page is the first I've visited as we have just joined the internet. I'm looking forward to a wealth of information via the internet and would love more information. Have any time?!!! Love to hear from you Down Under! Julie.
PS I've already learnt something - "From I do work on you" to "I work with you.!" J.

I have a different twist to the reflexolgy. I learned to muscle test from my chiropractor. I now use this for checking for any viruses in the body, weak muscles and so on. I can muscle test any product to see if it is good for the body and better yet, does the body need it.
I of course was curious when I took the general reflexology course with my wife and of course I could pin point exact areas that were weak on the foot and the body. I was excited to think I could use my muscle testing and reflexology.
I'm unsure where to go next, get certified or what. I do not what to do as I have a full time job and like it very much.
The only problem we encountered is that we pick up the weaker energy from the people that we work on. My way is more direct as I "GO FOR THE THROAT" as opposed to doing the whole foot. I talked to reflexologists and they have suggested drinking plenty of water before working on someone who is really sore. Another person showed us how to shut down but still some energy is getting thru.
If getting certified would give me more info than I would take the course.
Can you help me.
Thx
David J Brackett
