Much respect to this fellow colleague!

Let me dedicate my life today
To care of those who come my way.
Let me touch each one with healing hands
And the gentle art for which I stand.
And then tonight when the day is done,
Let me rest in peace if I've helped just one.

Μαθήματα Ρεφλεξολογίας στις Αγροτικές Φυλακές Τίρυνθας

Η Ρεφλεξολογία θα μπορούσε να είναι ένα μελλοντικό επάγγελμα των νυν εγκλείστων καθώς το επάγγελμα του ρεφλεξολόγου είναι ανοιχτό και δεν χρειάζεται μεγάλη οικονομική επένδυση για να ξεκινήσει κανείς. Τελικά δεν φροντίζουμε μόνο να απασχολήσουμε τους κρατούμενους, να τους δώσουμε γνώσεις και δυνατότητα για ανάπτυξη δεξιοτήτων αλλά προ παντός μέσω των μαθημάτων και των εργαστηρίων ενδιαφερόμαστε για τη μελλοντική επανένταξή τους, που λόγω της οικονομικής κρίσης είναι μια δύσκολη ιστορία.
Από αναζήτηση διεθνώς βρήκαμε ότι από το 2007, όπως γράφει η Roslina Mohamad, στη Μαλαισία στο Kuantan Penor Prison έκαναν μαθήματα ρεφλεξολογίας στους έγκλειστους τα οποία διαρκούσαν δύο εβδομάδες. Εμείς προγραμματίζουμε τα μαθήματα να διαρκέσουν ενάμιση χρόνο, ώστε οι κρατούμενοι να μαθαίνουν αυτήν τη θεραπευτική τέχνη και σε συνδυασμό με την τεχνογνωσία που θα αποκτήσουν για τις Κοιν.Σ.Επ (Κοινωνική Συνεταιριστική Επιχείρηση) να μπορέσουν να επανενταχτούν δημιουργώντας μεταξύ τους και μαζί με άλλους μια δική τους δουλειά.

ORTHOPEDIC REFLEXOLOGY

Orthopedic Reflexology is about utilizing the experience one has obtained in discriminating the reflex areas or the condition of the foot's tissues and then applying the correct technique, the proper amount of pressure for the appropriate amount of time, to achieve the "medium" as taught by Hippocrates in order for nature to heal. Orthopedic Reflexology practitioners use the condition of the tissues of the feet as a guide. Anatomical charts to understand the reflexes, zones, meridians and fascia, as well as to effectively manipulate the feet.

Orthopedic Reflexology will teach the theory and practical approaches of Hippocrates and Galens guide on the effects of "rubbing" – Anatripsis; the four meridians of Hippocrates, Orthopedic reflexology maps, understanding pain and a deeper exploration of the history and origin of reflexology and the "science" behind it. In Orthopedic Reflexology we also learn how to assist many local foot problems such as halux valgus and hammer toes, which in turn affects and helps treat disorders of the myoskeletal system and the internal organs.
Orthopedic Reflexology is based on the teachings of Hippocrates, the father of western medicine.This regards the art of rubbing - Anatripsis. Hippocrates wrote small concise passages on rubbing which he considered easy to learn and apply. Scattered in the Hippocratic corpus many references to rubbing (and of the feet) can be found.
During this 3 day instructive course you will be taught the anatomy of the feet which will include the four muscle layers, connective tissue e.g plantar fascia and retinaculum, the location of the bones of the feet and the route of the tendons and peripheral nerves entering the feet. Participants will be taught how to effectively treat all these structures, and make correlations within their existing knowledge and integrate the new techniques into their own existing practice.
The basis of the training is learning the theoretical and practical approaches of Hippocrates and Galen on the effects of "rubbing" – Anatripsis, as they have been handed down to us from their original books. Hippocrates describes in detail four main “veins” that are considered the forefather of the Chinese meridians. The Hippocratic veins will be outlined theoretically in detail, and approached practically until the knee and elbow respectively.
During the course attention is given to understanding modern concepts of pain and the “science” behind Reflexology and utilizing this knowledge in our every day work. The history and origin of reflexology is reviewed.
Upon completion of training in Orthopedic Reflexology participants will have the capacity to alleviate complementary to standard care of local foot problems such as hallux valgus and hammer toes, which in turn reflexively affect and help treat disorders found in other parts of the body.
Please note - Orthopedic reflexology is open to all, not only reflexologists. Therapists who are new to working the feet will notice the differences, and body workers can integrate the techniques learnt immediately into their practice.
In short...
- if you ever wanted to specialize in the lower limbs (anatomy physiology),
- if you ever wondered why what you already do with Reflexology is helpful,
- if you wonder why you are NOT helping,
- if you ever wanted to be introduced to the sphere of Greek medicine
This course is for you!
The majority of the course is focused on the practical applications of the Orthopedic Reflexology techniques. There are many structures in our feet and each one requires a unique technique.

Orthopedic Reflexology 3 Day Course 

• Hippocrates and Galens guide on the effects of "rubbing" Anatripsis
• Anatomy of the foot
• Hippocrates 4 pairs of Veins (meridians)
• Muscle chains/ Zones/ Chinese meridians/ Nerve pathways
• Orthopedic Reflexology Maps
• Hippocrates Holistic approach
• The 'science' behind reflexology
• Effective techniques for local foot problems such as hallux valgus and hammer toes
• Explain Pain-understanding the modern concepts

Aromatherapy and Reflexology Drastically Reduce Pain, Anxiety in Cervical Cancer Treatment

Pharmacologic integrative medicine approaches such as aromatherapy and reflexology can dramatically reduce the pain and anxiety associated with cervical radiation therapy, according to a clinical study currently underway at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James).

In an interview with CURE, Lisa Blackburn, MS, APRN, clinical oncology nurse specialist at The OSUCCC – James and principal investigator of the study, discussed how the study came to be and what it means for patients with not just cervical cancer, but other types of cancer as well.

Ορθοπεδική Ρεφλεξολογία Σεμινάριο 2018

Έτσι, στο παιδί, οι δάκτυλοι των χειρών και των ποδιών αποχωρίζονται ο ένας από τον άλλον. Έπειτα φύονται οι όνυχες στα άκρα τους, γιατί όλα τα αγγεία του σώματος καταλήγουν στους δακτύλους των ποδών και των χειρών. Τα παχύτερα από αυτά βρίσκονται στην κεφαλή, έπειτα, στα σκέλη, στους βραχίονες και στα αντιβράχια, στα πόδια και στα χέρια υπάρχουν τα λεπτότερα, σφιχτότερα και περισσότερα αγγεία, όπως επίσης τα λεπτότερα, σφιχτότερα και περισσότερα νεύρα και τα μικρότερα οστά. Έτσι είναι οι δάκτυλοι των χειρών και των ποδών.

Wessex Cancer Trust centre

We have complimentary therapies too so aroma therapy, massage, reflexology, facials and a few others including reiki.’ Tina says the Wessex Cancer Trust centre is about providing a holistic approach for people with cancer and dealing with the mental side affects of a diagnosis. For many, it is this they need help with once their treatment has come to an end. Tina adds: ‘The hospital meets the clinical needs but we meet the mental and wellbeing needs.

Little feet...

Little feet, so rich with charm, 
May you never come to harm. 
As I bend and proudly blow 
Laughter out of every toe, 
This pray, that God above 
Shall protect you with His love,
And shall guide those little feet
Safely down life's broader street.

Today we look to the stars...

A weightless environment has a huge impact on the human body, muscles deteriorate, the th astronaughts have to learn to walk again.
Its like uploading an app in your software, connecting the vestibular system to your feet again.
skin on the soles molt and once back to ear
Researchers are looking into all these changes, but Canadian scientists might have some great information for reflexologists in the future to assist in balance control and those bedridden.
Come to think of it, it might be a good idea for space programs to recruit reflexologists to see if they can help astronaughts once back on earth to get on their feet again!
NASA anyone 👽🚀
"The research team hypothesized that to make up for the lack of vestibular (inner-ear) information while in space, select skin receptors in the soles of astronauts' feet become increasingly sensitive in order to "re-weight" the sensory system.
The research team hopes that the study will identify the most critical receptors in the foot, which could then be targeted and re-activated among members of the aging population to offset sensitivity loss, which can lead to a loss in balance control and a greater number of falls."

FIU debuts East Coast’s first reflexology path at a public institution

The Biscayne Bay Campus community recently celebrated the unveiling of itsvery own reflexology path—the first of its kind at a public institution on the East Coast.

“The reflexology path is a reminder about the importance of wellbeing, about the importance of having balance, and about the importance of a holistic lifestyle,” said President Mark B. Rosenberg.
The reflexology path at BBC will be available to students, faculty and staff, as well as the greater North Miami community to promote health and wellness. Members of the Reflexology Club and Reflexology Ambassadors will be available to explain the path to anyone interested in learning more about it.

Anthony Larkin passed away.

I remember him before the facebook era, when there were just google groups. Very helpfull and passionate reflexologist.
A big influence worldwide.
He was proud of having the biggest collection of reflexology books.
http://www.anthonylarkin.com/book-list/foreign-language-reflexology-books/

So sorry to not have met him in person.
R.I.P.

In the early hours of Wednesday 18 July 2018, the 199th day of the year, I lost my dad Anthony Larkin where he was in the intensive care unit in University Hospital Waterford. The above is a poem I read to him to send him comfortably on his way.
He carved his own niche in the world being one of the key players and trailblazers in reflexology and reiki in Ireland and cited in many reflexology books internationally, helping so many people with their health, and teaching so many more across the country. He was also a well regarded Chiropodist and chiropody was a love of his going back many years. He was technology mad and loved keeping in the know with the latest Nikon cameras and Apple gear.
He has been the best, thoughtful and understanding dad anyone could ask for. Daddy was a character, full of wit and ways with words. He was brazen and would say anything to anyone. His stories often seemed exaggerated but we're learning that the more the exaggerated they sounded the more true they actually were. Everyone has an Anthony story and if you have any to share we would love to hear them. Comment below (please note it's public) or message me privately.
He was renowned for his choices in food and a visionary when it came to trying to communicate what he wanted to restaurant staff. This included his mantra when requesting no garnish
"I want steak and chips, no slurry or silage, not even flowers on the plate."
RIP Anthony Larkin 'the foot man' 1945-2018. Far too young to go so quickly.

Official College of Nursing of Barcelona

Just at the moment when most are shouting against the pseudosciences , the Official College of Nursing of Barcelona launches a complete program of " natural and complementary workshops " for health personnel. Fourteen courses that aim to bring attendees to practices such as reiki, reflexotherapy or floral therapy for 9 months.

The rule of the artery is absolute....

I believe the words of Andrew T. Still founder of
osteopathy and osteopathic medicine.are very much in line with what Eunice Ingham proposed.

In 'Autobiography of Andrew T. Still', published in 1908, Still wrote...
“The rule of the artery is absolute, universal, and must be unobstructed or disease will result.”
“It is a living substance whose function is to build or construct, and when hindered in its passage through the capillaries and into the veins it proceeds to build up abnormal growths and structures.”

They are exploring the world described by Eunice Ingham as "referrall areas".

"We found that adaptive learning with the hand affects cerebellar–motor cortex connectivity, not only for the trained hand, but also for an untrained leg muscle, an effect likely related to intereffector transfer of learning."
"The measurements from these subjects showed that the connectivity between the cerebellum and the motor cortex changed not just for the areas of the motor cortex that controlled the right hand, but also in the areas known to control the right foot."

"I have a secret, my father is Steve Jobs."

A heartbreaking story between a thirsty for love daughter and her successfull yet imperfect father. 
During the last year or so of his life, she was there as his health faded. She’d given up on the possibility of some kind of “grand reconciliation,” but you get the sense from her writing that she still loved her father, in spite of everything. 

Three months before he (Jobs) died and during one of her numerous visits to his death bed, the Brazilian Buddhist monk by his side possibly suggested the means of redemption.
The touching of the feet...  was for both of you.

Hippocratic Anatripsis Massage Course Ireland/London

Hippocratic Anatripsis (rubbing – kneading) is a Two Day Massage Training Course following the principles as taught by Hippocrates and Galen.  During this training practitioners will learn to work along the pathways of the four Hippocratic veins (meridians). Of these four main pathways, three of them travel along the myoskeletal system and one along the viscera. They are intertwined (connected and interconnected) not only amongst themselves, but also with the nervous system and have an effect on our thoughts, emotions and energy centres (as described by Plato in the dialogue Timaeus).
This training will focus on the practical hands on techniques, mostly with the recipient fully clothed or at times partially draped. Hippocrates and Galen describe many mediums to use with Anatripsis, all result with a unique effect. This will be discussed during the course. For the purpose of this two day training,and the comfort and ease of the participants, we will also learn how to be efficient utilizing the medium of cloth. In addition, part of the course will also include learning more on the nervous system and on the treatment of chronic and unresolved pain.
This training day is open to both reflexologists and massage therapists alike who wish to complement their existing skills. For those who have already trained in Orthopedic Reflexology the pre-existing knowledge and practical approaches taught will now be applied to the rest of the body.  It is also suitable for those looking to expand their work in the area of sports, with the elderly, or in any target group that has an objective difficulty in undraping.
The techniques that will be taught have been utilized by Spiros successfully in his private practice, the Athens Classic Marathon, the Aretaieio Hospital pain clinic (Athens), and was considered the main factor for the successful outcome of the Diomidis Handball team (Argos-Greece) winning the Greek championship and the European Cup in 2011/12.

Regional interdependence and reflexology

In the Orthopedic Reflexology approach, besides Eunice Ingham's expalnation on how Reflexology works (crystal formation/ circulation obstruction), we examine and study other possible mechanisms for the effect of reflexology.

One such possible mechanism might be what is known as regional interdependence, especially for persistent and chronic pain cases. These are the cases the vast majority of reflexologists face in their every day practise.

Simply put, regional interdependence is the concept that seemingly unrelated impairments in a remote anatomical region may contribute to, or be associated with, the patient’s primary complaint. Current research has shown that regional interdependence can be affected not only by other regions in the musculoskeletal system but impairements from varying body systems and regions. It is important to remember, that regional interdependence is different than referred pain.

With respect to reflexology, the ankle joint is a mobile joint and it correlates
Illustration property of Adam Thomas for Balacing touch
(reflexology) to the hip joint which again is a mobile joint. If the ankle joint from mobile becomes immobile then other joints will possibly be effected. The trained reflexologist will pick up this immobility (crystals, calcifications, nerve endings) and with skill and patience try to benefit this joint working out the "findings" and possibly correcting the mobility which in turn will have a positive effect on the hip joint.


If you would like a more simpler explanation, maybe these lyrics from The Skeleton Dance will help...

The foot bone’s connected to the leg bone.
The leg bone’s connected to the knee bone.
The knee bone’s connected to the thigh bone.
Doin’ the skeleton dance.

This video is also helpfull, take notice that the description stops at the ankle joint, ...me wonders if the alteration between stable and mobile joints continues way down to the phalanges.
