Hello Omale, I thank you so much for visiting Laia and me. You are truly a wonderful Oma, for all ages and generations (I say this because Laia calls you Oma as well) I hope the trip back to Seattle and then home went smoothly and without too much stress. Thank you for the information on the Light Party. It sounds like they are doing a lot of good. I so much enjoyed seeing you and Thomas together. He is very special and you are fortunate to have him as a son. I looked forward to seeing you both this time and I look forward to seeing you again. I love you. Good night. Schlaf gut. Ich bin sehr mude. Today I brought the dog to some people who said that they wanted him. If i had a farm I would have kept him. There is a lot of love in that little bundle of fur. o.k o.k. enough is enough - bye. love, Sonja

Hi Oma-I stumbled across your site a few months ago and thought it was great to see. I am a reflexologist that loves reading reflexology research. Do you have any suggestions on publications that I can get a hold of? I also wanted to tell you that I was classically trained to do one foot and then the other. After reading your page I've decided to give alternating them a try. It seems to be working out quite nicely. I appreciate all the information this site has to offer. Thank you for the abundance--your time, talent, and service to both the novice and the experienced. Take care. Penny

Name: Susan Turner Comment:
I purchased a book on reflexology at a flea market a few years ago. My father is diagnosed with pancratic cancer, but I am still hopeful. I looked up reflexology on the 'net and found a reference to Myra Alcorn's book. I noticed there was an E-Mail address and wrote to her. I have since received a few words of advise. I am hoping to one day become a practicer of reflexology. I am 46 and fed up with my present job.
I found your website and have reviewed it thoroughly. I am completely satisfied with what you have to say and hope that I may someday do justice to the field of reflexology. I have believed in homeopathic/holistic healing for quite a few years now, but in our area (northeaster Ohio) there are few and far between of the practioners. Thank you for having a site that promotes this.
Blessings to you and yours. Su.

Dear Oma:
I have enjoyed visiting your site and guestbook. I have been interested in reflexology for 4 years. I just finished my course, with the Reflexology Association of Canada, at the end of October. Two weeks ago, I wrote my written exam and passed with flying colours. I'm so happy! My practical exam is next. I've decided to practice at home, but haven't decided if I should get a portable or stationary reflexology table/chair. What do you suggest?

Can you please help me find a reflexology device that is a sturdy yellow plastic mat, the surface of which has all these different shapes like stones that they walk on to get reflexology massage... It also comes with a book to guide the user exactly how to use it. Please let me know where to find this product or where I can order it.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Oma,
I enjoyed reading your page. At the moment I am at a point where I have to decide if I should get into a conventional medicine course or alternative medicine. I have been reading books and books...I like to scientific research in convential medicine but still prefer the holistic view point of alternative medicine.
If anybody would like to get in contact with me and share their experiences (esp. osteopathy, accupuncture and refl.) I would love to hear from you, folks!
Oma, how did you like Canada? It's a lovely country...isn't it? I spend about 13 months there and miss it quite a lot.

Also dann, alles Gute einstweilen....liebe Grüsse an alle deutschsprachigen Freunde!!
Pfiati and hope to hear from you soon!

Hi! I'm in 11th grade and I'm doing my research paper on the benefits of reflexology. I'm also going to incorporate this into my senior project for next year. Many people think that I am strange for wanting to do this but I am truly into this. When I go off to college I'm going to major in pre-med and then go off to podiatry school. When I open my own practice, I would like to also perform reflexology on my patients. If you have any information on this, would you mind sending me some? Thanks.

Dear Oma,
Hi, my name is Sasha. I am currently taking a course in Reflexology and I love it so much!! I wish that you could help me out in the way of advertising and accumulating clientel. I am only 18 years old and am in OAC (grade thirteen; only Ontario high schools have it). I was also wondering if I can make an honest living only by being a reflexologist. I really need help in finding clients. I have another maybe six weeks to go, but I think that I should learn now. I just realized that this was your Guestbook and not your e-mail. Oh well, if you could help me out, please e-mail me back. I'd greatly appreciate it. I really like your page! Thanks for letting me look around.

I knew about Reflexology from my father, who was a chiropractor.
Being afflicted with Childhood Diabetes I was happy to have found a highly qualified Reflexologist, Oma at the Reflexology Center in Glendale.
When I started treatments I was on Insulin .
I experienced very notable numbness and pain in my legs, arms and hand. My gums had deteriorated to the point that the teeth did not have a hold anymore and my Dentist was very concerned about this condition.

A few month into the treatment sessions once a week I experienced considerable relief, the numbness and pain subsided, my hand and fingers had a better stronger grip again.
To the amazement of my Dentist my gums healed and turned firm,

My energy level allows me to fill a full-time executive position. I could reduce my Insulin 35 %. I am now on a maintenance program having Reflexology treatments every two weeks.
Reflexology enhances my immune system, normalizes circulation and coordination and balances Body Mind and Spirit, so I can say that I am emotionally stable and happy... I feel great.
I gave an account of my progress in writing 2 years ago. Now I like to confirm that the health benefits I get through Reflexology did not only stay with me but are still improving.

I am giving this testimony for the benefit of others who suffer from a seemingly hopeless health- condition You have nothing to loose and much to gain with Reflexology

Dear Oma,
My meeting you was both serendipitous and synchronistic. I feel blessed to have met you and to have been treated by you. Your treatments have been an important factor in my life, not only helping to reduce the stress in my life but they have also helped to alleviate another source of anguish in my life - the headaches. I look forward to my treatments as a gift I give myself, helping to heal both my body and spirit. For that I thank you. Although we miss you, Carol has been an excellent choice to carry on here. I want to wish you well with the new chapter in your life, your teaching, training and research. Thank you again and always. Love, Ingrid

Hi, Oma
I wrote you a German message recently, but I haven't heard from you so far...
I read your guestbook and a lot of people wanted to know, whether there are Foot Reflexology Seminars available:
In case you don't want to give seminars all the time, I could help you out.
My next Foot Reflexology Seminars are scheduled for October 3-5, 1997 in Aptos. It's a 20 hour intensive seminar on European Foot Reflexology (Certification, own wall-chart and manual included) Fee is $ 500.-
A lot of my students (I#m giving seminars since 1993) are making a living from Foot Reflexology now. JoeAnn Reimer( she uses now her maiden name Tennent) is one of them.
If you are interested in participoating "just for fun" you are invited to do so.

I would like to know more about foot reflexology. If there is someone out there who would like to share a foot and/or hand chart; I would love it. The tension in my entire body is incredible and a friend had told me about the pressure points in the foot and how the massage to those points can improve the tension and stress level in alternate parts of the body and mind. If this is indeed true, my feet (and body) would be very happy!!
Thank you!
I would be delighted if someone might want to respond to my request. I do not have an e-mail address, so it's the fax machine for me. The number: 1 (250) 757-8370.

I have been fortunate enough to have been a patient of Oma's for several years now. I first sought Oma's care for help with migraines, after having exhausted the "traditional" health care options(i.e. prescription drugs). Within a few months I experienced a significant relief from both the frequency and intensity of the migraines, and now only have an occasional reminder that the problem ever exsisted. Later I sought Oma's care for a duodenal ulcer. I was cured within three months and have had no recurrance. Now I seek out Oma for preventive care. And what CARE it is! Oma is a fountain of wisdom and healing light. She has a pretty wry sense of humor too!

Find your info very interesting. I have been using this method on my wife for many years and appear to have a "natural touch" if there is any such thing. Perhaps I am just sensitive to her reactions, but usually I can go directly to the problem areas. At my advanced age of 60, it appears impossible to get the certification or licensing that seem to be required in Texas, although I feel I could serve very effectively in this area.
