Reflexology Desserts to de-stress

Dessert anybody?

Desserts are what my Reflexology instructor called the relaxation or warm up techniques in Reflexology. I really like this term ... she also used to say "we are lucky as Reflexologists because we get to have Dessert, before, during and after a Reflexology session". Another great thing about calling them Desserts is in the name. Take the De turn the sserts around and you get De-Stress ... which in my opinion is the main benefit of these techniques.

It seems to be the simple things, the most fundamental techniques in Reflexology that can have the most impact in a session.

One of my first experiences with the power of Reflexology

I was working at a hair salon downtown Vancouver on week-ends during my Reflexology practicum. I had an elderly lady who wanted to work on her balance and mobility, she came in every week with her walker. After about 2 months of weekly appointments she just stood up and started walking out of the session room towards the front to pay for her session. I was in complete shock as I followed her with her walker.
 
So, what Reflexes did I work?
One of the things that surprised me the most was after the first session with her I had decided to only work desserts since I found her feet so rigid, that I found no point in working all the Reflexes until her feet had loosened up. I would work an entire 45minutes doing Reflexology Desserts, making sure to relax every muscle and tendon in her feet and ankles with gentle stretches. I did not even get to the Reflexes and she was already walking with ease and grace. Totally amazing.
These Desserts were the first techniques I became familiar with, and now I know how powerful they are. These Reflexology Desserts can be used as an entire session all on their own.
I have make some quick videos explaining these in detail and I have included the links below. Enjoy! Happy Reflexology!!!

Videos made easy

Make Really cool Videos
I have been playing with a really cool website that makes videos for you. It is so simple and it looks great! I have created a couple of Videos using it. Below are examples I put together in a matter of minutes. This is very useful if you have a lot of beautiful pictures or short video clips that you want to put into a video.

The website is called Animoto and you can try them for FREE but the thing is you can only make a 30second video for the free membership and you can not download it ... but it gives you a sense of it, to see if you would like to use it or not. 

I signed up for the All Access which is only $30/year and it's fantastic. Many of you know that I just had a daughter and that means hours of Videos and millions of folders full of pictures. This Program allows me to put a quick and easy video together, bringing those stored memories back to life instead of living in untouch folders.

Animoto just makes it so easy and I didn't have to spend hours editing and making videos as I have done using other standard video programs. 

Anyway this is something that I came across during my travels and it's quite fun ... I highly recommend trying it.

If you would like to give it a try or at least visit their site click here.

If Animoto is something that you would like to use they gave me a code to use when you upgrade or purchase the product level of your choice.
