Reflexology For The Spirit

A Battle Front Reflexology Spa Treatment to Boost your Client Partner’s Good Health

Angel 1

Now is a good time to offer a Reflexology Spa Treatment to boost your client partner’s good health.   People everywhere are fighting flu, colds, and other maladies as the body offers a battle for good health.  This is also a  time when people focus on the immune system because every pharmacy around has generously sized signs announcing flu shots.

For your client partner concerned about fighting viruses and infections, the Battle for Health Reflexology Spa Treatment is not a luxury.  It’s more in the necessity category.

Begin your battle  plan by selecting the essential oils you’ll use.  My preferred essential oils for this Spa Treatment are:

clove

lemon

nutmeg

oregano

peppermint

tangerine

thyme

Your oil selection will guide you to which music to use and what decor to adopt.

My favorite oil in this selection is peppermint.  But, since not everyone likes peppermint (or you may prefer another oil), select the oil based on your discussion with your client partner as you book the appointment.

Whichever oil you choose may inspire you to select a specific CD.  If not, be guided by the reflex points you’ll be working in this session.  You’re going to stimulate your client partner’s body to fight disease so being “battle ready” may be important.

When I offer a Battle for Health Spa Treatment, I’m motivated to offer peppermint oil and have a few peppermint plants in pots in the healing space.  You may be motivated to do something completely different.  There are no “wrongs” here.

Have your music section playing when your client partner enters your space.

You may want to wash your client partner’s feet as the first step in this session.  Warm some moist cloths in the microwave and gently clean your client partner’s feet.

When your client partner is comfortably situated face up on your table or in your reflexology chair, anoint your him/her  with the selected oil.  Put a few drops of the  essential oil in the palms.   Have him/her rub the palms together and hold them over the face and take a few deep breaths.  Then have your client partner rub the hands over his/her face and head.

Now, seat yourself at your client partner’s head. .  Bring in the Reiki and offer three Reiki holds to the head.

Now, move down to your client partner’s feet.  When you offer reflexology to the feet, you’ll add some  carrier oil to the essential oil and use this blend throughout the  session.  You may be able to find a commercial lotion in the right blend which you like.

Selecting the first foot, offer five minutes of delicious warm ups.  Follow this with five minutes of general reflexology to your client’s foot.

You now have your client partner’s first foot prepared and ready to receive the Spa Session on this foot.  In this part of the session, you’ll stimulate the glandular parts of the body as you work the reflex areas listed below.  You’ll encourage your client partner to fight disease.

Work the following reflexes for twenty minutes on  the first foot.  Offer this section in the following order.

1.  Work the solar plexus to relax the body and establish a good breathing pattern.

2.  Work the spleen reflex to stimulate it to perform its immune functions.

3.  Work the liver reflex to filter wastes as it cleans the body of toxins.

4.  Work the kidney reflex to stimulate blood cleansing.

5.  Work the intestinal reflexes to move toxins out of the body.

6.  Work the lymphatic system reflexes to build a defense system against illness

6.  Repeat the work on the solar plexus to finish the immune system path.

After spending  fifteen minutes working the above listed reflexes, spend five minutes offering general reflexology.  Finish the work on the first foot with five more minutes of warm downs.

Now, move to the second foot and repeat the process.  This means you’ll offer five minutes of warm ups, five minutes of general reflexology, fifteen minutes working the  reflexes in the following pattern:

solar plexus

spleen

liver

kidneys

intestines

lymphatic system

solar plexus

Finally, offer five minutes of general reflexology and then five minutes of warm downs.

When this is completed, offer your client ten minutes of Reiki theraapy on the feet.  It is now time to seal the Reiki therapy part of the spa session.

Let your client rest for a moment while you get a bottle of water or a cup of herbal tea for him/her.

Spend a couple of minutes with your client while s/he drinks the water and returns to “now”.

A Reflexology Spa Treatment to Renew Your Client Partner

Angel 1

Our bodies  are constantly discarding and regrowing  new cells.   Scientists tell us  we create a new body every seven years.  How this happens is pretty much shrouded in mystery but the endocrine system is the hub of this process.

Glands making up the endocrine system regulate  this renewal  as they control the growth and development of the body.    One  important thing our endocrine system does is boost the body’s ability to resist disease and fight infections.

A Renewal  Spa Treatment is not a luxury.  It’s a necessity for the client partner who wants to be as healthy and alert as possible.

Begin this session plan by selecting the essential oil you’ll use.  My preferred essential oils for a spa session encouraging renewal are:

frankincense

Idaho balsam fir

lavender

lemon

myrrh

Roman chamomile

Once you select the oil, you’ll be guided to the music, the decor.

My favorite oil  is lavender.  However, some people don’t like lavender so it helps to move on to something else if your client partner resists.

So, when you book the appointment you need to find out if your client dislikes lavender.  If so, you have other oils to choose from.  But, settle this when you book the appointment so you’ll know how to coordinate  the decor…music…

After you choose the oil, it’s time to choose the music.  When my client partner is open to lavender, lemon, or Roman chamomile, I choose one of two CD’s I’ve had for years:

“Shamanic Dream” by Anugama

or

“Spiritual, Spiritual” by B Tribe.

If you don’t have either of these CD’s, you probably have  something in your collection which will work. Whatever you choose,  select music  which is powerful and healing.  You’re working with your client partner’s endocrine system here…a very spiritual part of his/her being.

Decor for this Spa Treatment may not take much work.  You may not have to do much beyond taking away some clutter and adding a ceremonial throw for the table or chair.

Have your selection playing when you your client partner enters your healing space.

Offer your client partner a luscious water feature to begin this Spa Treatment.  I suggest either a foot bath or simply washing the feet with wet terry cloth cloths that have been warmed in the microwave  for a few moments.

If you go for a foot bath, think about a generous bucket or plastic water container filled with about four inches of warm water with a few colorful stones in the bottom.  Let your client partner sit with the feet soaking in this essential oil scented water for 2-3 minutes before drying the feet.  Then  have him/her get on your healing table or reflexology chair.

When your client partner is comfortably situated face up on the table or in your  reflexology chair,  wrap the feet in warmed towels.

Begin by anointing your client partner with your selected oil.   Put a few drops of essential oil in your client partner’s hands.  Have him/her rub the palms together and hold them over the face and take a deep breath.  Then, have your client partner rub the hands over his/her face,,  head, and halo.

When you offer reflexology to the feet,  add a bit  of carrier oil to the essential oil and use this blend throughout the reflexology session.  If you are using lavender or lemon, you may be able to find a commercial lotion which you like.

Move to your client partner’s head and bring  in  Reiki and offer three  Reiki holds to the head.

Now, move  down to your client partner’s feet.

Selecting the first foot, offer five minutes of delicious warm ups.  Then offer five more minutes of general reflexology to your client partner’s foot.

Now, you have your client partner’s first foot prepared and ready to receive the Renewal  Session on this foot.  In this part of the session, you’ll stimulate the glandular parts of the body as you work the reflex areas listed below.  You’ll encourage your client partner to heal, and rebuild.

Work the following reflexes for twenty minutes on the first foot in the following order:

1.  Work the solar plexus to relax the body even more.

2.  Work the pituitary gland because this is the gland which regulates everything.

3.  Work the thyroid  and parathyroid to balance the body’s metabolic rate.

4.  Work the liver to enhance the immune system and remove wastes.

5.  Work the adrenal gland to offer energy to the body.

6.  Work the reproductive glands (ovaries/testicles) to balance this system.

Finally, work the solar plexus again to finish the rejuvenation path.

When you have worked these glands for twenty  minutes on the first foot, spend five more minutes offering general reflexology.  Then, finish up the first foot with five more minutes of warm downs.

Now, move to the second foot and repeat the process.  This means you’ll offer five minutes of warm ups, five minutes of general reflexology and then you’ll spend the next twenty minutes working the body’s glands in the following pattern:

solar plexus

pituitary gland

thyroid and parathyroid

liver

adrenal gland

reproductive glands

solar plexus

Finally, offer five minutes of general reflexology and then five minutes of warm downs.

When this is completed, offer your client ten minutes of Reiki therapy on the feet.

It is now time to  seal the Reiki therapy part of the Spa Session.

Let your client rest for a moment while you get a bottle of water for him/her.

Spend a couple of minutes with your client while s/he drinks the water and returns to “now”.

Spa Treatments for Your Reflexology Practice

 

Angel 1Everyone needs pampering.  Never miss an opportunity to lavish attention and special healing on your clients.  Birthdays, anniversaries, the arrival of Spring.  This blog post begins  a  series of articles  offering  ways to pamper and heal your client partners.

These spa treatments will  not only offer attention, healing, and variety to your practice.  They can also  bring in new clients if you market gift certificates as well.

They will also offer a new service to your clients.

Spa treatments have four elements:

1.  ENVIRONMENT – It’s important to change the healing space environment in some way so that clients will feel like they are in a different energy environment.  This can be as simple as adding a small arrangement of fresh flowers or a ceremonial throw for your healing table or chair.  Or, it can be as elaborate as painting the walls, adding special furniture and  accents.

2.  WATER – is a  basic element in spa treatments.  This is easier than you might think.  A foot bath is all that’s necessary.  If that doesn’t   resonate with you, a couple of small towels, wrung out with scented water and heated in the microwave for a couple of moments can offer warmth and caring to a special client partner’s feet.   A cup of tea at the end of the session or a glass of sparkling mineral water is always popular.

3.  MUSIC – Coordinate the music with the theme with the session focus with the essential oils.

4.  ESSENTIAL OILS –  Select oils which support the session.

When you decide to expand your healing services to include spa treatments, you’re going to need several things:

1.  You  need a plan.  Depending upon your situation, you can offer spa treatments one week a month and transform the whole place or a short period of time.  Another option is to have a periodic spa day at your healing space.  A final option is to offer a menu of spa sessions which can be incorporated into your day at your client partner’s request.

2.  Design each spa session with a focused theme.

3.  After each of these sessions, remember to add a few extra minutes for your client partner to return to “now”.

Thank you for reading this blog/book.  The next several  posts will feature spa reflexology sessions incorporating Reiki therapy, music, essential oils, water treatments.  Each one will be different.  Hopefully  these suggestions will inspire you to create your own unique spa sessions.
