I am currently studying Beauty Therapy and have completed a short course on Reflexology. After witnessing and hearing about the amazing effects of such treatments I have since decided to choose Reflexology as my thesis topic. Your page has been a great source of both interest and information. Thank you.

I have enjoyed browsing around your site, it is helpful and contains a lot of practical information.
There is some information however that I am looking for and have not been able to find much on, and that is in the area of athletes and reflexology.
Because I am fairly new in practicing reflexology I am looking for any available information that may be known about sports and reflexology. I have a unique opportunity to work with elite athletes this summer. If you have any expierences, suggestons, idea's ect... about the subject it would be great to hear about them.

Hello Oma, How are you? I am writing to you on behalf of Freya Hoekstra. Freya is the mother of a friend of mine. She is 63 years old and has colon cancer. I am here at her house today helping her make vegetable juices because she has difficulty keeping solid foods down. Freya is slowly awakening to the spiritual aspect of her position and needs to communicate with people who are already on such a path. On May 30th Freya is going to have a colostomy. If you have information that would be useful to her now and for after the operation she would be grateful. Or if you would like to be a spiritual support person and communicate with Freya over the internet. She is not very familiar with computers but I have asked her son-in-law if he would be the middle man and help to get your messages to Freya and visa-versa. Freya is a very beautiful woman and is very open to learning what her position is here to teach her.
So liebes Omalein, I love you ever so much and I pray that the ever luminous light continues to shine through you. I did not go to Seattle this weekend because it was not well planned on my part. If you would like to come and visit us here in Duncan I would be thrilled. I hope you had a wonderful birthday and a wonderful visit with Thomas. I am looking forward to his visit. I love you.

Oma, I recently took a reflexology course for self knowledge and received a copy of a foot diagram that indicated each area of the foot that represented what part of the body for pressure and relief. I have lost that paper and am looking for information on this again. I am not a professional this is only for my own use and for my husbands. Please tell me where I could find a diagram of this again. I really enjoyed it, I found it to be interesting as well as truly helpful. Thank you. Barbie

Hi there, nice that you give info on urine therapy. I run an elaborate ( site on urine therapy) which might be interesting to add to your info on urine therapy.
In Germany there will be a Second World Conference on Urine Therapy in the summer of 1998; info also on my UT website. I am the author of a book on urine therapy, which is a bestseller in Europe (The Golden Fountain; The Complete Guide to Urine Therapy). Have you seen this book already? I wish you all best with your wonderful site and I'll put it in my Favorite Links. Greetings, Coen

Hi Oma,
This is Carol Riddles's cousin -- we met at the Open House last month. I hope you received the photos. I really enjoyed meeting you and seeing the Center. It was obvious how much love you put into it, and I am sure Carol will continue in the healing tradition. I recall you mentioned a student of yours working out of San Francisco.
Would you be so kind as to tell me how I can get in touch with her/him? I am doing research for a chiropractor in Pacifica who is considering, (not decided) expanding his practice to include other healing arts including reflexology. It is for this reason I make this inquiry. I look forward to your reply.

Name: Bian-hien Tan Comment:
Dear Oma,
My apology for using this column for a request rather than a comment or a suggestion.
I have been acquainted with reflexology since the last 20 years and practiced it from time to time when the need arises. Alas there was very limited books around to really 'pinpoint' the exact location of the reflex point. Most of the time it was just a guess from looking to an obscure drawing or diagram and massaging the area until the pain intensified and then subdued followed by 'apparent' healing of the 'illness' which is self-satisfying.
I am so satisfied with the result that I would like to promote to my family and friends but time and time again I hesitate in pointing the right/correct location of the reflex point. Can you help my predicament? Anything that helps me find the right resources/books/drawing available internationally.
I have seen your recommended list of resources and books but so many of them that left me more confused. I rather go straight to you Oma and with your wealth of experience in this field you should be able recommend me one or two books or drawings comprehensive enough and accurate to be kept forever.
Many thanks Oma for your attention and kind help.

I am a massage therapist and I use reflexology, aromatherapy, music therapy, and light therapy to enhance the effects.
I have had working knowledge of reflexology for over 25 years, but have only been trained and practicing for 4.

I know reflexology is a sound science. I trust my body and the messages it sends to me. My mind chooses reflexology over any other modality in the healing arts...it knows what is good for it.
A favorite story of mine is about one day when I was having work done to me by Fredis Busby. She was working away on my big toe in the nexk area (I am reclining in a salon chair) when "CRACK"! goes my neck. My neck had adjusted itself. It made such a loud sound and jerked with such force we both started laughing.

THANK YOU OMA. I love everything you have provided here, it is wonderful information.

Dear Oma,
I love your web site. I have two questions I would like to ask you. I am an American living abroad and would like to know if you know of any book in English written specifically about what emotional disorders are connected to specific physical disorders.
I believe that most of our physical dis-eases are caused by emotional imbalances. I would like to treat the cause as well as the effect.

My next question is I will be in Rome in the beginning of May and would like to try and get in contact with Monica Wightman.
Do you know if she has an e-mail address I can reach her through?

Thank you for all your information and the time you put into it.
Forever questioning and learning,

Hi Oma, Interesting to find you on the almighty Internet. I've been experiencing burning under my toes on the right foot only.

I am curently living in Florida and would like to find a reputable certification program here in Orlando, can you help me out with that?

This is the first time I have visited your page, and I immediately enjoyed it. Also, your chat about an HIV infected male and your help gave me some inspiration. My 30 year old step-daughter also is HIV positive, and shamefully, had not thought about reflexology. I will give it a try. Is there any place in particular that one should give extra attention? I will also check my sources, but did not know about the urine treatment either. I was blessed years ago getting to learn how to do reflexology and feel this is indeed a God-given gift to keep us going...and it really has kept myself and my mother of 70 on track. I will be putting you in my Favorite Place on the computer, and will be checking in with you again. Thanks!

Hello Oma, How delighful it is to read your website. I have bookmarked it so I can go back to it as often as I need and as quick as I want. I have recently graduated from a Reflexology course although I became aware of this alternative medecine 15 years ago and very few therapists were available then in Canada. It is such a marvelous way to meet people as you provide them with comfort and many times ectasy. I have devoured your comments and I am not done yet of course as I savour your thoughts. It is such a nice feeling to be able to help others and to put a smile on their faces. I must say I enjoy massaging the feet. It seems that I go into a trance while I am working on a foot. I close my eyes and try to feel the problem areas and focus on improving the troubled feet. Anyhow I must go and I hope that you keep on writing because we do need your experience. Thank you for being who you are.
