Forty five year old woman with lymphedema in her right arm and hand due to lymph notes being removed from the armpit area. She had to have a lymph massage on her arm and hand every day to reduce the swelling. I hadn’t long learnt the lymphatic massage on the feet and was looking for case studies. She was ‘game’. So every day for the next week I worked on her feet with the lymphatic massage technique. IT WORKED, she was amazed (me too). The same results as a lymph massage on her are were achieved through working on the feet.
One day a friend arrived and really pushed me to get on with it. Now every client gets a lymphatic foot massage at the end of every Reflexology session. The results have been amazing and I so appreciate that friend who encouraged me.
The Lymphatic foot massage is taught in Soul to Sole Level 2.
I have this case study that I would like to share
It is one of the most profound experiences I have had with Aura-Soma Colour and Reflexology, it was a spontaneous treatment given to a friend.
She was going away to attend a course on cranial sacral therapy and she thought a reflexology treatment would be most appropriate to begin her journey. She had chosen B70 (yellow/clear), from a previous Aura- Soma session and had brought it along with her on this particular day. She wanted to choose some more bottles as well, just ‘to look at’. Bottles 12 and 55 were selected and then after being settled in the lazyboy chair she was drawn to B60. Then she asked if she could include her B70 with these (perhaps for support). To complete the picture number 49 was also selected.
So lined up on the cabinet were bottle numbers 12 – 55 – 60 – 70 – 49
At this stage I felt it appropriate to use the turquoise pomander, which she was also drawn to and happily joined in with.
When working around the right heel (the red area – security and mobility), B55 started to glow and I felt the energy around her feet.
She started to talk of the course she was to attend and of the teacher whom she knew and of the teacher’s coldness, and how the course had a feeling of coldness. The red energy swirled around,perhaps helping to bring warmth to the situation and to help her feel more secure about the workshop.
As I was working around the toes, neck,heart, lung (ball of the foot – emotional area, turquoise – holding the innermost feelings), the turquoise from B49 swirled around enveloping both of us.She starting talking of past experiences and traumas and was able to truly express how she felt and release the emotions.
Being in a caring environment,experiencing the ‘Touch of Reflexology” and the ‘Living’ energies of Aura- Soma seemed to touch her very soul enabling her to be able to let go on a deep level.
On to the left foot, relating to the present situation. Again when working around the left heel B55 started to glow and the red energy came swirling around. She had started talking about warmth and how she would take the warmth with her to the course. At the finish of the treatment, B49 (turquoise/violet) glowed again and the violet energy danced around us, I felt the healing was complete.
The treatment was finished off with a foot massage using the blue tincture cream. I felt her message was ‘to communicate in a loving peaceful way and to accept the decisions she makes.’
As each colour and energy was needed the bottle seemed to glow as it sent out its healing, such gentleness, such softness, truly a ‘SOUL/SOLE healing’
If you have a group of interested people, a course can be scheduled in your area. Janice is willing to travel to present and teach Aura-Soma Colour Care, Soul to Sole Colour Courses, and Reflexology Courses.
