Great Day

We have just been invited to teach in China.

New newsletter just went out with a brand new functional MRI study.

And orders have just been pouring in for the new research document.

Good day.

Evidence-Based Reflexology Series

We just put out a press release for PRWeb on our Evidence- Based Reflexology series. It is available for your web site, blog or social networking site. Study Finds Reflexology 93% Effective As of this post there has been over 23,000 hits and that is just over 16 hours since it's release.

The electronic books have been flying off the shelves (if they were actually on shelves and not simply a hard drive). The real interesting part to us is that it is about evenly split between Evidence-Based Reflexology for Reflexologists and Evidence-Based Reflexology for Health Professionals and Researchers.

The one we thought would sell the most is the Evidence-Based Reflexology for You and Your Family is a distant third. It also seems that reflexologists are attracted to the more detailed document, Evidence-Based Reflexology for Health Professionals and Researchers which we thought would mostly interest researchers. We were wrong. It seems as though reflexologists are seeking more in-depth information than we imagined.

On second thought the reflexologists are increasing their economic viability by purchasing the $100 dollar document. One reflexologist I talked to is going to work with a doctor. I guess to her it is only a couple or sessions or so.

Also we discovered that one of the Google Gadgets (we call them widgets) will translate your web pages into 23 different languages. So now you can view our web page in 23 different languages. How cool is that? I wonder if would work for this blog?

NeuroLogica Blog- Reflexology in UK Schools

A Yale neurology professor has attacked our work as bunk. He is picking on the program mentioned on this blog that uses reflexology to help with aggressive students.

The professor carefully parses his words in order to twist our words. Stay tuned for our response.

Foot Health—The Natural Way The Green Room

I was at a client's house yesterday and she asked me to look at her mother's shoes. Her feet were hurting her on the forefoot. When I inspected her shoes the inserts were completely worn flat. Same thing with my Dad. His feet were bothering him. when he brought his shoes out they were completely worn out.

The above link has some good general information on shoes and socks. Above all remember that shoes will not last for years.

Somatotopical relationships between cortical activity

Okay once again a fMRI study shows the connection between areas on the feet and areas in the brain related to the corresponding part of the body. This time we are talking about the shoulder, eye and small intestine. Why in the world isn't medical science paying attention to these studies? This study was on Medline, the holy grail of the medical profession.

"Somatotopical relationships between cortical activity and reflex areas in reflexology: A functional magnetic resonance imaging study.

Nakamaru T, Miura N, Fukushima A, Kawashima R.
Tohoku University School of Medicine, Sendai, Japan; Department of Functional Brain Imaging, Institute of Development, Aging and Cancer (IDAC), Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan.
We examined the somatotopical relationship between cortical activity and sensory stimulation of reflex areas in reflexology using functional magnetic resonance imaging. Three reflex areas on the left foot, relating to the eye, shoulder, and small intestine were stimulated during the experiment. A statistical analysis showed that reflexological stimulation of the foot reflex areas corresponding to the eye, shoulder, and small intestine activated not only the somatosensory areas corresponding to the foot, but also the somatosensory areas corresponding to the eye, shoulder, and small intestine or neighboring body parts. Thus, the findings showed that reflexological stimulation induced a somatosensory process corresponding to the stimulated reflex area and that a neuroimaging approach can be used to examine the basis of reflexology effects."

Struggling council spends £90,000 on child reflexology

© nataq. Image from

"... Labour-run Lambeth Council in South London is to spend £90,000 next year sending reflexologists into its schools to practise their soothing art'

"The team, from a company known as Bud-Umbrella, will work in 60 primary and 14 secondary schools, with children under 13 deemed to be badly behaved"

Unruly school pupils will be punished with... a foot massage
Last updated at 7:46 AM on 03rd November 2008

It is surprising how harsh the response to this program is in the UK papers. It makes it sound like the children misbehave and then get rewarded with a reflexology sessions. I am sure that isn't the case. But it is more sensational for the writer to portray it as some type of reward system.

I wish I had know about reflexology when I was a counselor. Children are not the enemy. Unruly children are often abused both mentally and physically in many families. Punishment of the harshest kind often makes them worse. Why not a little TLC? There is research in this direction that show positive results.

Reflexology sessions shouldn't be a reward for bad behavior but it can be a respite from the stresses of adolescence. The higher their stress level the worse they behave. Lower their stress level and then you may have a chance of reaching them. Hopefully before it is too late.
