Skin Cancer Update

We headed over to Vancouver for Markus’s 3 month post surgery check-up on Sept 21. Surgeon was amazed to see the level of recovery and stated that there has been rapid changes showing incredible recovery of upwards to 6 months. He recommended we keep doing, what we are doing. (This strategy has been a combinationContinue reading “Skin Cancer Update”

Reflexology & Resonance

This past weekend I gave Markus a reflexology treatment, the first since his skin cancer surgery on June 9. Before then, he spent three weeks recovering at home and has since gone back to working indoors over the past two weeks. The incision is healing very well but is going through typical bothersome stages ofContinue reading “Reflexology & Resonance”

Reflexology Presurgery

This weekend, I carried out a reflexology case study session for my husband, Markus, this one being the last before his Mohs (skin cancer) surgery on Tuesday. A miracle happened two days ago; he got the call on Friday to in for Tuesday as there was a cancellation. His original surgery was scheduled for theContinue reading “Reflexology Presurgery”

Reflexology Self-Care Kit

This kit was assembled based on my own self-care needs and includes a variety of tools that I find useful for relieving stress and pain.  STICK – The ‘Relaxus’ Thai reflexology/massage stick with two sides is made from non-threatened wood; use to pinpoint pressure points on hand and foot. STONE – The basalt stone feelsContinue reading “Reflexology Self-Care Kit”

Reflexology & Diet

This past Saturday was our reflexology day where Markus is put into a state of homeostasis (parasympathetic mode) aka rest and relaxation. I focused on a full foot reflexology routine, followed by accentuating nervous system and endocrine system key reflexes (solar plexus, pituitary, pineal) with the tuning fork. Markus says he can feel the vibrationContinue reading “Reflexology & Diet”

Reflexology & Super Moon

This weekend Markus’s session consisted of foot and facial reflexology. As usual, I used the tuning fork to accentuate specific reflexes. Markus says he prefers the vibration on the solar plexus reflex, just under the ball of the foot. Anything we can do to reduce his stress will help contribute to his body in healing.Continue reading “Reflexology & Super Moon”

Reflexology for Allergies

It’s allergy season and so I thought I would put this easy to follow hand reflexology image together for you to try experimenting with your own hands. Endocrine, respiratory and lymphatic immune systems are included:Plantar (inside): large star=solar plexus, mountains=lungs, stars=sinus, thymus, and Dorsal (outside): star=lymph reflexes, bolt=hypothalamus and dot=pineal gland. Press on these pointsContinue reading “Reflexology for Allergies”

Reflexology & Responsibility

While my case studies are on hold, I am still doing reflexology sessions with my husband. I am combining all I can (reflexology, reiki, sound) into these sessions to see if we can reduce any of the stress and inflammation that comes with his job. As Markus is an essential service working as a letterContinue reading “Reflexology & Responsibility”

Reflexology & Winter

This past weekend I continued to practice reflexology for Markus. I always carry through a full foot routine while after accentuating stress relieving reflexes (solar plexus) with the new tuning fork. The session allows the Markus the opportunity to rest the mind while the body experiencing homeostasis (rest and recovery) through pleasurable pressure to theContinue reading “Reflexology & Winter”
