Take Charge of Your Schedule with a

Reflexology Appointment Planner

That will Revolutionize your Reflexology Practice

Client Booking and Follow-up Tracking.

You have a busy life! Perhaps you are a wife, mother with a hectic schedule,who fights to keep on top of all the business tasks necessary to run your own Reflexology practice, and maintain a thriving client roster. Well the struggle is over – I am here to help!

My name is Lauren Slade, and I have been a Reflexologist for 40 plus years, and the annual purchase of a store bought appointment planner to organize client appointments and to do lists, always seemed to fall short of meeting all my business needs. Before long there were post it notes and memos tucked in between pages to remind me of all the “little extras” that I as a self employed small business owner, needed to keep track of.

Designed by a Reflexologist for Reflexologists

To solve the daily battle with paperwork, I gave up on “standard” run of the mill day timers, and I decided to create my own version, specifically designed to be used by Reflexologists and wholistic health therapists.

My dated daily planner has appointments spaced 30 minutes apart. I also included specific areas on each calendar page to make notes and schedule / record client follow up calls, and to book new clients. Helpful reminders of daily To Do’s will keep you organized and on track.

Take a look to see exactly what is included – this is just a small sample of the 420 pages

Introducing Aromatherapy Coloring Club

Do you love essential oils? I do and have used them for over 40 years in my day to day life. They’re great for so many different things! From helping aid in the recovery of the common cold/flu, to a natural air deodorizer, sleep aid, and so much more, essential oils are becoming more common.

I love them so much that I even created a course how to use Aromatherapy oils with Reflexology which was on sale a little while ago.  Whether you picked up that home study program, or slotted it in for a later project, then you will love what I just signed up for – an Aromatherapy monthly club that very cleverly combines essential oil basics with coloring pages.

Every month, as a member of the aromatherapy subscription, I get a new set of coloring pages themed around one essential oil. The coloring pages allow me to explore different aspects of each oil – their history, science, uses, and more, using fun, detailed coloring elements.

I was excited to receive the November club release of the Ginger essential oil package, and December’s offering is the Christmas time Cinnamon essential oil coloring package. Best of all the monthly price is half of the individual package fee..

If this sounds like something that interests you, I invite you to join me and the rest of the aromatherapy coloring enthusiasts today.

Check it out here Aromatherapy & Coloring Club

My favorite coloring page (out of total of 31)  in the December pack is the recipe for Warming & Relaxing Foot Bath – ideal for the coming cold winter nights.  What a great idea to share with your Reflexology clients!

Is your Child Stressed? This can Help!

Know how to recognize the causes and signs of this common problem in kids.

Anxiety is an all-too-common problem faced by children today. As with adults, children respond differently to stress depending on their age, individual personalities, and coping skills.

Childhood stress can manifest with difficult behavior, and it is important for parents to recognize the signs of stress and to look for the possible causes.

Some common signs of stress and anxiety include:

  • Complaints of stomach aches or headaches
  • Sleep problems or nightmares
  • Bedwetting
  • Getting into trouble at school

Note: If you suspect that a change in the family such as a new sibling, a move, divorce, or a death of a family member is behind your child’s stress and anxiety, seek advice from an expert such as your child’s school counselor, your pediatrician, or a child therapist.

Quick Stress-Relief Ideas for Kids

Plan fun activities you can enjoy together such as:

  • snuggling together with a book
  • massage
  • playing a favorite game
  • deep breathing exercises. Encourage your child to breathe in “good” air and exhale “bad” air, and picture it carrying any worries out of their body.
  • do some yoga poses with your kids. Simple yoga poses such as downward dog, cobra, and tree are excellent for kids

For something that has longer term benefits – perhaps try something different such as Brazilian Toe Massage (BTM) – so called because it originated from Brazil and involves a light touch to each of the toes.

BTM is a simple 15-minute routine, based on 10,000-year-old Chinese Meridians, that is fast acting and gentle enough for even small children.

Brazilian Toe Massage has been known to get a tantrum-throwing child to fall sleep in 15 minutes.

Reflexology & Cancer Research

Research demonstrates that cancer patients who receive reflexology work experience significant improvements in physical and emotional symptoms, being provided with help in the management of symptoms and the side effects of chemotherapy.

That research is reported here in Medical Application of Reflexology: Findings in Research about Cancer by Barbara & Kevin Kunz.

Studies from eleven countries show improvements for patients during all aspects of the cancer experience.  Link to buy the book below.

  • Chemotherapy Symptoms are lessened for cancer patients receiving chemotherapy or radiotherapy when reflexology is applied. Results from research show patients experience decreases in nausea, vomiting, anxiety, fatigue and depression.
  • Management of symptoms during cancer care Management of symptoms is improved for cancer patients receiving reflexology as demonstrated by research. Lessened pain, anxiety, stress, nausea and depression was realized by hospitalized patients with implications for use of reflexology at home by trained family members.
  • Post-operative care Studies show that reflexology application post-operatively results in lessened pain and anxiety for cancer patients.
  • Palliative/hospice care Reflexology use for cancer patients in hospice or palliative care helps reduce physical and emotional symptoms, alleviate fatigue, improve quality of sleep as well as providing a method to experience a helping presence when applied by a family member.

Reflexology Shows Promise for Treating Cancer Symptoms

A study led by a Michigan State University researcher offers the strongest evidence yet that reflexology – a type of specialized foot massage practiced since the age of pharaohs – can help cancer patients manage their symptoms and perform daily tasks.

Funded by the National Cancer Institute and published in the latest issue of Oncology Nursing Forum, it is the first large-scale, randomized study of reflexology as a complement to standard cancer treatment, according to lead author Gwen Wyatt, a professor in the College of Nursing.

“It’s always been assumed that it’s a nice comfort measure, but to this point we really have not, in a rigorous way, documented the benefits,” Wyatt said. “This is the first step toward moving a complementary therapy from fringe care to mainstream care.”

The study involved 385 women undergoing chemotherapy or hormonal therapy for advanced-stage breast cancer that had spread beyond the breast. The women were assigned randomly to three groups:  Some received treatment by a certified Reflexologist, others got a foot massage meant to act as a placebo, and the rest had only standard medical treatment and no foot manipulation.

Wyatt and colleagues surveyed participants about their symptoms at intake and then checked in with them after five weeks and 11 weeks.

They found that those in the reflexology group experienced significantly less shortness of breath, a common symptom in breast cancer patients. Perhaps as a result of their improved breathing, they also were better able to perform daily tasks such as climbing a flight of stairs, getting dressed or going grocery shopping.

Wyatt said she was surprised to find that Reflexology’s effects appeared to be primarily physical, not psychological.

“We didn’t get the change we might have expected with the emotional symptoms like anxiety and depression,” she said. “The most significant changes were documented with the physical symptoms.”
