Three Shires School of ReflexologySpotlight On Three Shires Reflexology 250 x 250
Milton Keynes, Warwickshire, Huntingdon

‘When I first decided reflexology was the career I wanted, I had no idea where this would lead me and how enthralling the path would be. 25 years on, thank goodness the therapy has grown in recognition with not only public perception but with medics too! By combining methods & techniques developed over thousands of hours in practice and by teaching those methods to small groups, the “Three Shires Experience” has earned a reputation second to none.  By the time they qualify, Three Shires graduates are complete & well-rounded reflexologists, able to make a real difference to their client’s wellbeing!’

PR Diploma Logo 250PR Diploma Launched

Professional Reflexology is proud to officially announce the launch of our brand-new qualification, the Professional Reflexology Practitioner Diploma (PRD).

First of all, we would like to thank those who have already applied to teach the PR course either by opening a new school or in an established venue. Plus all of you who have given words of encouragement and support. We were genuinely excited by the enthusiastic reception to our initial announcement, and have already run orientation days for our first 3 schools, all of whom will be announced shortly.

Reflexology And Hay Fever

The medical name for hay fever is Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis Those who have an allergy, for example to cat or dog hair, suffer from Allergic Rhinitis and again can be susceptible to asthma.

It may surprise you to know that Reflexology can be an incredibly effective treatment for hay fever and for allergic rhinitis in general.

When training to be a reflexologist it is a requirement to do a large number of treatments as 'Case Studies' which are part of the learning process when one can begin to work with volunteer clients with differing conditions in order to build p experience before entering practice. As a student, one of my case study clients told me that she suffered very badly with hay fever particularly during the Rapeseed season.(we live in a rural area). So badly it turned out that when the Rapeseed plants were in flower she was unable to walk her dog and she couldn't drive her car with the window open on a hot day. (This was before the days of universal Air-Con in cars). I had been told that I was going to be taught a specialist technique for the treatment of Rhinitis during my course and so I arranged for this client to return at the appropriate time for further reflexology.

During the period of treatment, the symptoms reduced and eventually were no longer evident. Janice, the client in question, has been free from symptoms of hay fever during the ensuing years and has only the occasional 'top-up' session of reflexology.

Another example is client Guy who came for Reflexology for an entirely unrelated reason. During treatment, the Rhinitis problem was evident in his feet and he explained that he had suffered from Rhinitis every day of his life for as long as he could remember, (he was at that time in his late thirties.) He took medication daily and believed that it would always be that way which is why he had not mentioned it to me. We arranged for further treatment and after three sessions he found he no longer had any symptoms and of his own accord had stopped taking an antihistamine medication.

We met some years later and he told me that he had never suffered since.

Reflexology may be very effective for hay fever sufferers when these specialist techniques are used. Make sure that you choose one of the best-trained Reflexologists in the UK, a Professional Reflexology Member from our directory.
