About 10 years ago, I wanted to add “touch” to my holistic practice – I’d been teaching Yoga at Sun and Moon and Life Coaching (by phone) for many years. I was passionate about feet (I KNOW) – and about to give a 2-hour workshop – Yoga for your Feet, when I received a flyer in the mail, “Reflexology Classes Forming.” WHAT!! The teacher, Thurmond Greco lived in Burke, Virginia and the timing was perfect. After 10-plus years of practicing Reflexology and 1000’s of clients – I have been led to teach this amazing, holistic modality. My wonderful teacher Thurmond Greco who now lives in Woodstock, New York, said I was a natural. After I finished 50 classroom hours and 100 pairs of feet, I had a practice. – I had no idea what an impact it would have on me, my life and my business. Reflexology is now almost HALF of my income 🙂
I am inviting you to join me and just one other student/person/soul – I just teach two at a time – very rare and very hands on – the practice of Reflexology. This is how I learned and I want to pass it down in this way.
