How to heal after the loss of a miscarriage

Posted by on Oct 7, 2018

What can you do to ease your pain and loss after a miscarriage? For many couples having a baby is not a simple exercise, and there are countless obstacles and stages to pass before that baby is brought home. From my work as a Therapeutic Reflexologist, Bereavement Counselor, Logotherapy practitioner and mental imagery for healing practitioner, I have come to believe that the support women need on their journeys to conception and birth is a whole-istic (holistic) approach where the MIND and BODY are treated as one. We can’t just focus on getting the body right for conception; we have to deal with the emotions that come with the experience as well. Often the beginning stage of conception is filled with struggles and difficulties and many couples today are battling here. This challenge comes with lots of emotions, highs...

Reflexology and Logotherapy – Where Body meets Spirit

Posted by on Mar 28, 2018

Recently I watched an inspiring movie called UNBROKEN. Louis Zamperini was bullied by his classmates when he was growing up in California. To escape their cruelty he ran from them which became his passion. His older brother had faith in his abilities and trained Louis to be a runner. In 1936 he became a hero for his country at the Olympic Games in Berlin where he was congratulated by none other than Hitler. Later on he joined the United States Army and during WW2 his fighter plane was shot down over the Pacific Ocean where he and a few of his platoon survived 47 days floating in a raft. When all hope was lost he was rescued (and captured) by a Japanese war ship and subjected to barbaric war crimes in a Japanese P.O.W camp in Tokyo. He was...

What can you do to ease your pain and loss after a still birth? For many couples having a baby is not a simple exercise, and there are countless obstacles and stages to pass before that baby is brought home. From my work as a Therapeutic Reflexologist, Bereavement Counselor, Logotherapy practitioner, Mental imagery for healing practitioner, and incorporating emotional first aid for trauma, I have come to believe that the support women need on their journeys from conception to birth is a whole-istic (holistic) approach where the MIND, BODY and SOUL are treated as one. When there is devastating news from the doctor that there is no heart beat anymore, at any stage of the pregnancy, this brings about tremendous loss. When this happens in the third trimester or at the time of birth, women (and their partners) report...

Reflexology supports the hormonal changes taking place in the menopausal body and helps alleviate side effects! Recently ladies are asking a lot about MENOPAUSE. Here is what REFLEXOLOGY can do for you… Did you know that Reflexology can help you manage your menopause symptoms like hot flushes, insomnia and night sweats? It helps by: • Regulating the hormones and glandular functions of the body by balancing both the physical and emotional systems.

Research: Reflexology Makes a Difference in Response to Pain by Barbara & Kevin Kunz. http://www.reflexology-research.com/ press here to connect to original article New research shows that reflexology makes a difference in how individuals handle pain. British researcher Carol Simon of the Department of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences, University of Portsmouth, UK notes; “It has been claimed that reflexology is useful in the treatment of various conditions including such things as migraine, arthritis and multiple sclerosis. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether foot reflexology attenuates acute pain in human volunteers.” The study was conducted using an ice bath, a classic research method for studying response to pain. The study participant’s hand is immersed in ice water. Time is then measured to see how long it takes for the individual “to find the experience painful.” Next, time is...
