FK, male, over 60 yrs old, has Raynaud’s disease, had left knee replacement surgery 2 yrs ago, high blood pressure (medication), various muscle/joint complaints particularly the left side of his body. FK concerns are his continued inflammation/pain in the left knee, weight issues & allergies. He has also noticed some inflammation/throbbing in his toes recently.
FK had the following to say about changes he noticed at the end of 10 weekly session: There is relief in my calves, especially in my left leg with the knee replacement. I don’t wake up with the weird toe sensation anymore. I look forward to these sessions as I know they will alter my mood.
FK used to visit me when I followed the Ingham method of reflexology based on an Egyptian model. Here's what he said about the differences: Working from foot to foot on same areas felt more balanced. Previously, one foot was done, as the other “waited.” There was a balance of positive sensation not previously felt with the other method. Quite effective.
BN, 62, requires reading glasses to read books or computer use. He tends to tilt head back to read up-close. He also frequently gets eye tics due to the stress on his eyes.
The distance he can read comfortably (w/o squinting or tilting head) with glasses at the start of therapy was 19.5 inches.
After the first session, BN commented that his eyes felt refreshed & bright. After the 3rd session, he noticed he is having less eye tics and at the end of the 10 session, the eye tics have not returned. Again, I measured the distance and he improved from 19.5 inches to 23 inches with glasses.
This was a case study for my ocular therapy course. Consider using Face Reflex therapy SORENSENSISTEM for near or far sightedness, astigmatism, diabetic eye related diseases, macular degeneration, cataracts, crossed eyes, poor night vision and more.
NP, age 42, is overweight, deals with depression (medicated), has high blood pressure (medicated) and recently was diagnosed as borderline diabetic. She is now changing her diet and has lost 10#s and is exercising regularly.
NP was one of my Traditional Chinese Medicine based foot reflexology case studies. NP didn’t notice much changes in her health until midway through the 10 sessions. At that point, she realized that her digestion had improved (no longer constipated) and that her overall mental attitude was better. On several visits she had neck pain that resolved itself by the end of the session.
Since this was a case study for my TCM based foot reflexology class, I only worked on her feet. If you have weight issues or diabetes, you would be better served to do a combination of Face and Foot Reflex therapy. I bring this up to show that the most effective way to use Reflex Therapy SORENSENSISTEM is to have me set up an individualized plan for you & your health complaints.
K, age 6, is considered a slow learner; she was slow to crawl, walk and talk. According to her speech therapist, her speech level was of a 2 year old. K also has sensory processing & behavior issues.
K was my case study for the Special Needs for Children course. Over the span of 10 home sessions, I worked on K with the individual protocol I created. In addition, I trained her mom to be able to take over doing the work as K would need ½ hour sessions several times per week.
K’s sensory issues meant she did not always like her face to be touched for any length of time. To accommodate her sensitivity, creativity was needed to perform some of the face work. Even with not being able to always do the full session, K’s mom did notice some positive changes, such as; “she has more to say and at times strings 2 or 3 words together”, “usually going to the store with K is difficult, but the other day she behaved very well and listened to me” and “she played nicely for 2 hours at the park”. Mom looks forward to more positive changes in K as she continues doing the face reflex therapy.
Contact me if you would like to use Reflex Therapy SORENSENSISTEM for your child with special needs. Various options are possible and dependent on you and your child needs.
M,male age 9 had attention and focus issues at school. M was a very bright young boy but constantly needed to be reminded to pay attention to the current task. It did not take much for M to think of other things or talk to his neighbor and forget what the teacher had asked them to do. An evaluation prior to our 10 sessions stated that he could not follow many instructions if they were only given orally – M needed both visual and oral in order to achieve success with following directions.
From the onset, M’s teacher noticed an improvement in his attention span. Instead of reminding M to get back to the task every minute, it was about every 10 minutes. After 10 sessions of Facial Reflexology, M’s teacher offered her observations below;
“I saw a lot of changes in how he approached the work in class. Where he often would get stuck with page layout and writing in his main lesson book, during the time he was doing the facial reflexology, he not only was getting his main lesson book work done regularly and with a much better sense of organizing his work on the page, but was even on one occasion, going above and beyond, wanting to write a rough draft of a long story all himself with no help.
During singing and morning speech work, for the three plus years prior to the facial reflexology work, he would often be dreaming away when the group was singing or speaking, only chiming in sporadically and at times seemingly unaware he was not doing what the rest of the group was doing. Since doing the reflexology work, I noticed a dramatic change in his participation in this respect, singing entire songs, and loudly enough that I could actually hear his voice (which I could hear at times was not on key - being more a speaking low monotone - but nonetheless trying to do the melody). He was even able to hold a part in a round when he did not have any other one near him singing the same thing - something that would have been unthinkable previous to the Facial reflexology work.
On the purely physical side, I noticed improvement in his usual slack jaw, slightly open mouth expression to one that was more toned with mouth close and a smile on his face.
It was definitely a noticeable and dramatic change from this work (and that is saying a lot since he has had other work and support that did not seem to make any drastic difference) - this work did.
The only thing I would add, is that since the therapy ended, he has slowly begun to revert back to some of the previous seen issues (tuning in and out of singing and speech work) yet he has not lost all his gains he made.”
Note: I worked on this boy while I spent 2 months in Tuscon AZ in 2014 & was unable to continue his treatment.
