remember the first time I sat in front of a pair of feet on the
first weekend of my training course to become a Reflexologist back
in 1995. I had decided
that I wanted to become a complementary therapist, and after trying
out several therapies (oh how difficult that research was – I had
to subject myself to reflexology, massage therapy, shiatsu – poor
me!) I decided reflexology was what I would like to study.
someone who decides to train as a reflexologist does not have a
problem with feet! Even
so, I was apprehensive about how I would feel when it came to
actually sitting at someone’s feet and learning how to give a
needn’t have worried – I sat at a fellow student’s feet and I
immediately felt at home. I
just began by holding the feet and using gentle massage movements,
and somehow I felt the significance and the power of observing and
working on a person’s feet. They
say the soles of the feet reflect the soul of the person, and after
all my experience as a reflexologist, I believe this to be true.
feet can tell you so much about the person - about their owner’s
thought processes, their gifts, how they express their feelings and
emotions, if they are clear communicators, if they are sensitive, if
they are practical and methodical or if they are full of good ideas
that they find difficult to put into action.
Since I first studied reflexology I have worked on so many pairs of feet. I have studied the Language of the Feet, and I have developed a keen interest in the stories the feet can tell. Here are just some of the things you can tell about a person’s approach to life from their feet
are so many aspects to reading feet. The skin, temperature, colour, shape of the toes, angles of
the feet, markings on the feet, and nails all tell their own part of
the story. Summertime
can be a very interesting time for foot readers as they can observe
all those feet in flip-flops and sandals!
course, on the other hand, if you spot someone staring at your feet
– now you know what they are looking for!
