Teaching Reflexology Techniques For Health & Wellness by an ARCB Board Certified Reflexologist

Home

Last Updated: November 25, 2022

Welcome to my website!

I'm Board Certified In Foot & Hand Reflexology by ARCB and I plan to open an educational business as a sole proprietorship, LLC within two years to provide continuing educational units (CEU's) combined with lodging at my three properties (San Francisco, South Lake Tahoe, and in Lake County, CA) to health professionals for self-care in a retreat-like, all-inclusive environment.  Classes by day, free time by night to explore the city, explore South Lake Tahoe, etc.   

I'm in the process of applying for Reflexology Association of America Professional Membership and acquiring my required educational hours to become part of this steering advocacy group for reflexology research in the United States. 

My ideal students are the licensed and certified health professions such as:

  • Respiratory Therapists
  • Physical Therapy Assistants
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Licensed Clinical Social Workers
  • Drug and Alcohol Counselors
  • Reflexologists
  • Massage Therapists
  • Registered Nurses
  • Doctors of Chiropractic
  • Neurology Specialists
  • Doctors of Oriental Medicine
  • Licensed Acupuncturists
  • Somatic Psychologists
  • Licensed Vocational Nurses
  • Certified Nursing Assistants
  • Certified Medical Assistants
  • Elder Care Workers
  • Home Health Aides
  • Energy Body workers - Reiki, Polarity Therapy, etc.
  • Natural Health Practitioners
  • Nurse Practitioners
  • Pain Specialists
  • Psychiatrists
  • Psychiatric Nurses
  • Emergency Clinicians
  • Neonatology Nurses
  • Critical Care Nurses
  • Holistic Health Practitioners
  • Day Care Instructors
  • Preschool Educators

I am developing relevant reflexology protocols and sequencing routines to each of these professions to address the unique challenges they experience for their own self-care, stress management, resilience and longevity in their fields. My Certified Massage Therapy credential in California allows me the scope to practice and teach reflexology bodywork in California as our state does not independently license reflexology as a freestanding discipline as it does in other states.  I plan to offer these services in both an in person small class environment delivery and an online CEU/CME platform that is either self-directed learning, or Zoom platform group learning for those times when social distancing is in effect and learning is not advised due to national or state health emergencies.  

UCSF Disclaimer:

I will not be able to have UCSF staff or faculty as paid clients or receive any referrals from associations from UCSF staff or faculty due to conflict of interest being an employee there.  I can offer reflexology teaching and practice services for free on a volunteer basis to staff and faculty at events like our Care for the Caregiver Day and for practicum session completions.  I'm a founding member of UCSF Wellness Committee as a Champion delegate for my support staff role in the Pediatric ICU as well as founding member of UCSF Sustainability Committee since 2006. 

I applied and was awarded a grant from UCSF to create a Wellness Room prototype for our Pediatric Intensive Care Unit in a small conference room that allows staff to have quiet space, get a massage with our electronic massage chair, do yoga, meditate, pray, or just emote and journal due to our intense emotional working environment.  It's been well received and has helped boost morale.  Other units are designing their own wellness rooms as well on their respective hospital floors and it's helping further the self-care movement within the inpatient hospital setting which is much needed for resilience.  Along that grant application process, I learned that our PICU developed its own nurses driven PICU Wellness Committee to encourage overall wellness in our unit.

Please check back on this website for more updates as they develop.  

Please subscribe to my podcast, "Veganish And All Things Healthy" on all major podcast platforms to hear interviews with doctors, nurses, nutrition experts, psychiatrists and lay persons in the health and wellness field on various topics.  You'll also get a lot of information that misses the major media outlets but is well cited as I read all the citations for you to check the articles you're interested in learning more about.
