I know Thurman Greco not only as a Reiki Master and teacher but
as friend, yoga student, minister, political activist, animal lover,
reflexologist and the list goes on. Thurman has a depth of
experience in many healing modalities. As a Reiki practitioner
her healing hands move intuitively and effectively over her client
feeding them with gentle healing energy. Her teaching is
intuitive as well, guiding each student skillfully and
easefully. She instills confidence in her students so that they
are inspired to reach their highest potential as healers.
I am forever grateful to Thurman for passing to me these
ancient healings that support me, my family and my clients
daily. She provides continuing support for me and all of her
students to share our experiences, to learn from and practice with
one another and to deepen our practice. Thurman has also passed
these teachings on to my son, Mason. Mason became a
Master Reiki Practitioner at the age of 19. At this age it has
been such a gift. It is a guiding force in many of the
decisions he is making about his life.
Thurman is also an ordained minister. She performed the
wedding ceremony for my husband, Steve and me two years ago and for
that I am also forever grateful.
Kathryn Carey-Ackermann, Master Reiki Practitioner
a single mother with a full time job running my own business and a
dream to have a healing practice, I searched for many years to find
an education that fit my lifestyle. The style of classes that Thurman
Grecco offers in foot reflexology was the answer to my questions. All
classes are individual to fit my schedule and I can set my own pace.
Thurman's foot reflexology classes are well rounded, part of every
class is a lecture, I practice the information taught in the lecture
on a client and we close the class by me receiving a foot massage
from Thurman, so that I get to experience what was taught in the class.
I feel Thurman has given me a fantastic foundation for my
healing practice and she encourages me to keep building my education.

teaching ability and healing skills come together as a beautifully
woven spirituality. Her patience, kindness and inherent wisdom
are inter-related pieces of a whole. Whether as a participant
in one of her classes or lying on her table, there is always the
sense of nourishment for the soul. I am eternally grateful that
our paths crossed.

My mother introduced me to Reiki four years ago when I was in
high school. She would give me Reiki treatments when I was not
feeling well or if I was having a difficult time with something.
I found these sessions to be very relaxing and healing. I left
high school and entered into art school. I am a painter.
After my first year in college my mother encouraged me to do Reiki
Level 1 training with her teacher, Thurman Greco. I had met
Thurman at my mom's wedding the summer before and I felt very
comfortable around her. We both thought that Reiki would
support me in my endeavors as an artist. Thurman is a wonderful
teacher. She took time to help me and my friend Jonas learn
this ancient healing practice and to become Master Reiki
Practitioners. Not too many people would put so much effort
into two teenage boys but she was very supportive through every level
of training. I am so grateful to Thurman and to this practice
which has helped to guide me through many transitions and challenging times.
Mason Durrin, Master Reiki Practitioner
for me has been a remarkable learning experience - one that is
continuing each and everyday - whether it be reading an article,
attending a workshop or yoga class and most importantly through my
clients. Each and every one has contributed not only to their
spiritual and physical growth but also to mine. Each
reflexology session is really "custom made" for the
individual client. Some sessions are all about talking while
others are completely silent. Whichever it may be, healing is happening.
Essential oils are used during a session with Lavender being
the predominant one. It is calming and soothing as it brings
the client to a much needed relaxed state. Depending on the
client's needs I have also used peppermint (especially if one is
experiencing head pain), eucalyptus (to energize oneself), and
patchouli. I always ask the cliebt which they would like - and
in some cases have used a combination of two oils.
Sage is a must. The healing space is always
"saged" before a session and many times the client wants
sage incense burned. It is a very purifying herb and I find it
brings you into a very spiritual place.
Nutrition is also a major factor when working with
clients. Some clients have digestive problems and are
encouraged to seek advice from a professional such as a
nutritionist. Working with a nutritionist and receiving
reflexology is a "win-win" situation for the client.
Discussions take place as to what foods are a must and what need to
be avoided. I stress the importance of an alkaline diet and
eating organic foods.
Reflexology is not only physical but spiritual as well.
In my practice I bring into the session the correlation between the
area on the foot (physical) and the chakra it is connected to.
I also use some Kabbalistic modalities, whether it be letters or
numbers. An example would be if I am working on a particular
point on the foot I usually work that 18 times. The number 18
means chai or life. Another number would be 26 which is the
number for God. I also call in Reiki to bring in additional
healing and awareness to the session.
I truly enjoy being a reflexologist. When working on a
client I find myself making a connection with a higher realm, asking
for help and guidance and for light and love to enter the healing space.

I ponder, looking out the window traversing in the mist of
Time, and I see her. She is barefoot, praying, beseeching the
Great Mother of Child, Holy Madonna, to bless her. She is me in
a past life. Beautifully spiritual. I want to connect
with her and pay her homage.
In my Reiki Initiation with Thurman, I did the unexpectedly
unique. I give distant healing to this past life of mine and
feel blessings ripple through to me out to all women and men who
share universal soul stories questing inner and outer beauty; what it
means in its Illuminated Form.
I am sensitive to the suble.
have been lucky enough to be a "foot model" for some of
Thurman Greco's reflexology students. Her approach is
comprehensive, clear, and encouraging. It is more like a
collaboration than a student/teacher relationship. It's a very
calm and comforting atmosphere in which the student, model, and
teacher interact in a beneficial and easy going way.
And, dogs are welcome in the class, so that makes it extra
special. I deeply appreciate the opportunity to be learned on.
