Mark Dennis performing reflexology
On May 2, Brenda Morris, Mark Dennis and I visited the Division of Parole in Reisterstown, MD to deliver reflexology sessions to employees. We corralled a conference room, dimmed the lights and played a soothing spa dvd while employees got their relaxing sessions. Some of the comments: "amazing", "Can I take you home with me?", "I feel like I've got new feet!"
On April 25, my reflexology posse (Brenda Morris and Terri Lambdin) and I traveled to the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing to give a presentation and demonstration on reflexology. Our presentation was part of a two elective course, Complementary and Alternative Medicine in Health Care, for medical and nursing students. We were given 45 minutes to explain reflexology and its benefits and to walk the students through a mini-session. I talked and fielded questions while Brend and Terri delivered the foot goodies. There were roughly 17 students in attendance and only 3 of them had ever had reflexology. It was a very new subject to most of the students. One student who received a mini-session was so blissful she was speechless.
