What to do When Your Life Begins to Unravel Around the Edges

What bodywork does for you when your life unravels around you:

Years ago, I took a reiki class in Reston, Virginia, in Reiki Jinkei Do, taught by Gilbert Gallego.  This was at a time when I was taking Reiki classes from anyone and everyone who taught one.  I learned something wonderful at each class.  I remember each and every class fondly.

Giving my memory one takeaway, it is this:  Bodywork in general works in our best interest, supporting health and healing on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level.  Reiki and Reflexology are in this mix.

I write a lot about Reflexology and Reiki because I spent the most time studying those two modalities.  I teach both of them and I know the good they can do for a person.

Bodywork in general is cumulative, whatever the modality, which means that the more sessions someone has, the greater effect they will have on that body.

So far, the only modality I’ve found without contraindications is Reiki therapy.  This means you can use it on anyone, anytime, anyhow, anywhere.  Reiki is a soft touch on a clothed body so that it can be used in a private healing space,  a bus station, airport waiting area, ICU, or accident scene.

Bodywork of all kinds have reactions.  They depend on the modality, the client, the healer, and what is happening in the life of people on the day and time they receive help.

When clients receive Reflexology and/or Reiki, their reactions are different each time they receive a session.  One of the reasons we don’t think about is the fact that our bodies are different  each and every day.

I’m discussing this now because I’m seeing more and more people whose lives are unraveling.  Stress and uncertainty over a long period of time have a way of untethering a person from those things that ground us.

There are many things you can do.  The first of these is to recognize your situation for what it is.

The second is to list the things you can do.  You want to know what you can choose from.  The options are, possibly, many.  Which ones are more realistic and which ones are less realistic?

Make your  healing list.  .

Be prepared to change your list several times, at least.  Maybe you should be prepared to change your list more times.

What is practical?

What is affordable?

What is the option that you prefer?

Work this list through as you winnow it down to fewer and fewer options.  Finally, this list will be short – possibly only 1 or 2 items.

Until you get down to the final option, there is one thing you can do now.  There is one thing which will help you.  It probably won’t interfere with your life.

It can change your daily life for the better.

And, what is that?  BODYWORK!

There are many modalities that ground the person receiving the work.  A good thing to do when the “going gets tough” is to schedule and receive regular grounding bodywork.

Your body will be grateful for the attention.

One example of this is sleep.  Both Reflexology and Reiki sessions can help restore disturbed sleep patterns.

The effects of a bodywork session are often experienced immediately after a treatment.  For example, a client may notice that a headache has disappeared or a frozen shoulder may has become much more mobile.  Other symptoms may take three or more sessions to improve a condition or complaint.

Generally, a disorder that has been around for a long time may take a longer time to improve.

The problem with this is that we live in a society that wants instant results.

Schedule regular bodywork sessions as part of your life.  These regular sessions will stimulate your body’s own healing processes over time as you have regular visits.

If you find regular sessions to be challenging, take some classes and learn to give sessions.  That way, you can exchange sessions with others.

Ask a friend to join you in a learning adventure.  The two of you can learn together and exchange sessions.  This is self-care which is extremely important in these times.

With blogs, books, classes and sessions, I am not here to change your story.  Instead, I am here to be a conduit for your own healing.

What Your Feet Reveal!


Your feet reveal the state of your health.  They reveal physical problems in other parts of your body.

Often, the problems we experience with our feet relate to problems in other parts of the body.

Our feet reflect our lives:  what we eat, what we drink,   how we exercise, how well we sleep.

Tense feet may reflect tension in other parts of your body.

Limp feet indicate poor muscle tone.

Cold, blue, or red feet indicate poor circulation.

Sweaty feet suggest hormonal problems.

Swollen feet suggest a trip to a physician is in order.

Corns, blisters, and ingrown toenails will affect posture.

Bunions should be looked at by a podiatrist.

Hammertoes can benefit from reflexology sessions.

Toenails are a reflection of the diet.

When you don’t have time to look after your feet, you may experience corns, blisters, ingrown toenails, and bunions.  These problems affect your posture and metabolism.

Regular reflexology sessions bring about homeostasis.  People receiving regular reflexology sessions feel better and have fewer foot issues.

Please check them out!  “Let’s Live with Thurman Greco” is a positive, entertaining series of interviews which I’ve conducted over the years.  My guests enjoy being on the show and many ask to return.  One thing they all have in common:  we’ve all met each other somehow in Woodstock, NY.

Happy 10th!

Way back 2014, I published the first post of “Reflexology for the Spirit”.

I dedicated this blog to Margaret D’Urso.  She was a wonderful person who gave of herself whenever she could.  She was brave in her attitudes toward healing people.  She was always willing to answer any questions asked of her to the best of her ability.  Without her, this blog and my companion wellness books would never have happened.

I also dedicated this blog to reflexology students everywhere.

You are wonderful people who are giving far more than you realize when you allow someone to be your teacher.  To venture down a totally unknown path is a brave undertaking.  Your willingness to ask questions stretches your teacher’s knowledge and results in better teachers and mentors.  Without you, this blog would never have made it to 10 years!

I hope you are enjoying this journey we are on together.  I know that this blog has travelled the world because the companion book, “Healer’s Handbook” has gone out to over 36 countries!

Companion YOUTUBE video productions featuring reflexology and Reiki therapy are available on “Let’s Live with Thurman Greco”

“Reflexology for the Spirit” is an inexpensive downloadable  video which is fun to use and easy to adapt to sessions. ENJOY!.

I hope you will continue to journey with me.

Thank you!

Thurman Greco
