Welcome to our community of massage, bodywork and reflexology practitioners. Therapists, if it's been more than two weeks, it's time for your massage.
Do you find that a lot of people think that anyone rubbing on a foot is performing reflexology?

In 2003, during my practical final exam- the proctor (a lovely Irish woman in her 70's) stood over my shoulder and whispered ' Your technique is perfect my dear, but you will blow your thumbs soon using that much pressure!' She said it with a twinkle in her eye, and I will not forget it soon. I have since eased my pressure a bit, if only to keep my thumbs, and have not noticed any difference in tx results.
