Melbourne… Saturday 14 November 2015
Why am I sick? Discover the messages of your body systems, disease and symptoms
Based on, and expanding Principle #1 – Anatomy and physiology reflect another perspective. The workshop presumes that the body is not in discomfort just to make life unpleasant. It is trying to attract attention to a specific issue that needs attention. Knowing only the basics of each system is the beginning of understanding what the body is trying to communicate. Discussion will consider:
- An alternative approach to the meaning of sickness
The obvious reasons people believe they are sick
The hidden, disowned or denied answers
Why sickness can be the best option

Nervous System is about communication and interpreting
Endocrine System focuses on authority figures and learning through negative feedback
Cardiovascular System is connected to flow and blockages and being on the right track
Lymphatic System and Immunity is associated with picking up after others, self-protection and self-criticism

Why are my feet sore? Gathering information to discover the messages of painful feet
Based on Principle #2 to #8 of my book Holistic Reflexology, the eight principles
The workshop presumes that the foot is not in pain to make life unpleasant. It is trying to attract attention to a specific issue that needs attention. Also, it is not about feet reading. It is about collecting information and putting it together.
#2 Chakras reveal flow and blockages in energy and looks at the chakra areas on the foot and the issues they contain. It then considers common foot ailments and conditions that appear in these areas. In combing the two it suggests a possible cause for the discomfort e.g. a spur on the heel, tinea on the toes, plantar wart on the ball of the foot.
#3 Elements express their energy through the toes and discusses the elements; air, fire, water and earth, as expressed through the toes and considers how the shape and texture of the toes can reveal excess or lack
#4 Organs hold emotions, often suppressed and focuses on the emotions held within the major organs and how a painful reflex in the foot can be an indicator of emotions rather than a physical problem. This sections also considers the theory that energy and matter are interchangeable and the possible results of suppressing emotions
#5 Left and right define who, how and when and defines who the problem is associated with, male or female, when it happened, past or present and how it unfolded
#6 Shape, texture and position show strength and weakness, potential and challenge; noticing the shape, texture and position of the foot is another way to collect information about areas in life where a person may feel pressured, in need of protection, be inflexible, show stoic resolve. This section also discusses common foot problems such as Morton’s neuroma and plantar fasciitis.
#7 Words and phrases draw a parallel to the cause; encourages people to listen intently to the words they use to tell their story. They are vital to solving the puzzle or sore feet and pain.
#8 I attract my own issues. This topic asks us to think about the people who come into our lives and consider their purpose, especially those who we find difficult.
