Can you pass along any information regarding reflexology and bringing someone out of a coma. My friends 17 year old son was in a car accident ten days ago and his brain was literally shaken up. No impact just a lot of shaking.

Hi, I was reading a book on reflexology and read how using reflexology hand combs across the middle of your palms reduces childbirth pain and shortens delivery. Was wondering if you knew of anyone who has tried this and if it really works. Thank you.

Name: Tirandaz. J . Taraporewalla Comment:
Question :
1. Is accu-pressure and reflaxology the same thing ? if they are different Can accu-pressure and reflaxology work together?
2. I have been doing accu-pressure ( and reflaxology), and often practising on my family members and friends, and they are very pleased with me. But I want to be professional, so could you guide me how I can practice legally and set up my professional career, as I am very interested in it.
I would appreciate if you would answer my questions
Thanks

I've been reading some material on reflexology and I have found myself very interested in it. Actually the first time I realized how helpful it could be was when a friend was suffering and I made her feel better by working on her feet. I have always loved people. I can sit and watch people for hours and feel like I almost know them.I can't think of anything I would like more than to make people feel better.I
have very much enjoyed what I've been reading here. I am hoping to learn more.

Name: Pierre Patenaude Comment:
A lovely and insightful resource on the art of Reflexology. As a teatcher of traditional Karate-doh, I have for the last two decades sought out traditional healing techniques that do more than just manage symptoms. I feel that Reflexology, particularly when coupled to aromatherapy acts on such a basic level often going beyond where other therapies can reach.
I regularly work on my students who have come to me with evident work related stress problems. I feel that Reflexology and traditional martial arts are closely related and shouldn't be taught independantly.

I would like to hear more about the "Oma" Method and also ways of acquiring clients. Do you feel one needs to be certified per se? Thank you for any and all answers. Best regards,

As a student of Reflexology I am very interested in your lecture quotes, inparticular on the pineal body, as I have found it very difficult to find references.

I am a qualified Aromatherapist , so your comments on how the two therapies may work together would be appreciated. Keep up the good work , Liebe Oma. regards Kerstin ( of German extraction!)

I have been studying reflexology now for about 3months--hope to make it a profession in the near future. Studying through the I.I.R. What suggestions would you give me as I am just beginning...have begun doing my 100 practicum hours. One person I work with is diabetic with blood sugar lately in the 180 range. Her doctor is watching this, yet I am really concerned and a little scared that I might "overdo". Can you give me any pointers? I would like to know how you, Oma, got your training. Thanks, sally

Certified reflexologist, homeopathic student, 21 years old and sharing treatments for over a year, I am constantly amazed with the results (sometimes immeadiate) that my clients experience. I am very interested in case studies working with people with fibromyalgia, MS and arthritis. I am interested in incorporating body reflexology points, and simple alternative treatments in order to help my clients. I welcome any e-mail. Especially from those reflexologists just starting out, with many questions - and anyone who may be interested in this field, I encourage you to e-mail me with any questions! I think it is about time that the medical community should take reflexology seriously. If anyone is in the area and interested in visiting please feel free to call me! My doors are always open.

Name: DICK GAARENSTROOM Comment:
Oma, Please send me some information on the types of Research you have been engaged in. I am doing research into the modality of Reflexology and its practice and results. I would be interested in the types of research you have conducted that can substantiate many of the miraculous claims offered by many local practitioners.
Dick:
As an active practitioner of Reflexology of more than twenty years, I need no further proof of the results that can be achieved with Reflexology methods.
The research I am engaged in focuses more on ways to supplement the method of Reflexology in order to make it even more effective. I am also investigating new possibilities of communicating the benefits of Reflexology to a wider audience.
