Hello Everyone! It's was pre-COVID since we last connected here. Most people have been affected by this stressful time for several reasons. Some people were living a stressful life before and this current situation has even increased their already stressful life.
Reflexology has many benefits including relaxation. Let me briefly tell you what reflexology is before i go any further. There are reflexes in the feet, hands, ears and face that represent all body parts and organs. If there is a sensitivity or what some may call crystal in a reflex area then that may mean something is going on in that area. However, we as reflexologist do not diagnose any medical condition. However, we can help our clients through the story the feet (hands, ears and face) tell us.
There are two main reflexes that can assist someone when it comes to relaxation that's the solar plexus and adrenal reflexes. Today I will talk about the Adrenal Reflex which represents the tiny organs that sits on top of each kidney. They carry out very important roles in the body. Here are just a few examples of the roles they play in the body. The adrenals secrete numerous hormones that impact our development and growth which help regulate our kidney function. Also helps us by by regulating our "fight or flight" response in the body with hormones norepinephrine and epinephrine.
Reflexology has many benefits and one of the benefits is relaxation. If you would like to talk to me in further detail about how reflexology can help you. Please feel free to contact me.
These are stressful times for most folks around the world. Everyone has an opinion about whether COVID19 is very dangerous or not. Even though I can not recall experiencing something like this in my lifetime, and it appears to be uncertain when this will all be over with, I am determined to make the most out of this situation by practicing some simple but profound self-care techniques.
As most of you know, and some of you do not know, I am a certified reflexologist, plant medicine enthusiast, and lover of all things natural. Reflexology is the practice of applying controlled pressure to reflex areas, which are areas on the feet, hands, face, and ears that represent body parts and organs. When pressure is applied to reflex areas systematically and in a controlled manner, benefits occur throughout the body. Some of the benefits are detoxification, boosted circulation, relaxation, and much more.
I want to share some simple but powerful techniques that may decrease your stress level and give your immune system a boost. The reflexes in your hand that can help if you are stressed are the Adrenal Gland Reflex and Solar Plexus Reflex. The adrenal glands in our body are shaped like a walnut and sit on top of our kidneys. Their function is to secrete hormones involved in essential bodily processes and to keep our reaction to stress in balance. The Solar Plexus is a network of tight nerves located right under the apex of the bottom of the rib cage. Its function is to keep our organs running smoothly by preparing the body to respond to stress through metabolic changes. The Adrenal Reflex is located between the tip of the thumb and your wrist. The Solar Plexus Reflex can be found on the palm side under your middle finger, right at the point that lines up just under the knuckle.
In addition to using reflexology, there are numerous teas that can help you during this time, such as chamomile, lavender, kava, valerian, and passionflower, to name a few. Remember to sip on a good quality tea, preferably loose leaf tea. You can also add other nutritionally satisfying flowers, herbs, tinctures, etc. Some additives I like to add to my teas are hibiscus, roses, lemons, cardamom, and flower essences. Just experiment and have fun!
Another simple but powerful technique is deep breathing, also known as abdominal breathing or belly breathing. The first step to deep breathing is to relax your shoulders and inhale through your nose (experience the air moving through your nose into your abdomen as you expand the stomach). Hold your breath for a few seconds and then slowly exhale, completely emptying your lungs. It helps if you put one hand on your chest and the other on your stomach. Deep breathing has numerous benefits and can help you relax, lower your blood pressure, and balance your heart rate. Always check with your medical provider before doing these breathing exercises if you have COPD, asthma or other lung issues.
Lastly, I want you to know the power to help ourselves is in our hands(reflexes) and in nature(teas, flowers and etc.). Let’s use what has been given to us to help us live a better life. If you know someone that could benefit from this virtual talk please share this information.

The antiseptic properties of lavender oil make it very useful in soothing pain from minor burns, cuts, and bruises. Applying a few drops to wounds helps to increase cell growth around the wounded area causing the wound to heal faster.

It can be applied by soaking a towel in a bowl of water infused with a few drops of lavender oil. Apply this to sprains or muscle injuries.

A few drops of lavender oil can also be added to a stale potpourri mixture. The amazing aroma of lavender essential oil helps to revitalize the taste. They have a powerful flavor and should be taken in small quantities.
