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!’

Wendy Finke PRM Founder and Principal of Three Shires Reflexology

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.

GDPR 250

 
Reasons for GDPR

A major reason introducing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is because of the huge amount of personal data that is nowadays being processed. Information held about individual people has increased by 90% since the Data Protection Act (DPA) came into force 20 years ago. Back then, you didn’t buy anything online, a tablet was something you swallowed, Google was a noise a baby made, if you used a search engine it was probably Altavista and a phone wasn’t smart even if you could get a signal!

So GDPR makes sense, and Professional Reflexology Association has collated the information below in order to help ease your way through the maze of the new regulations.

Reflexology and Hay Fever

hay feverreflexology

 
Most of us look forward to spring and the promise of summer but to others, it can be miserable because of Hay Fever.

Some get minor symptoms whilst others can be confined to home with the windows closed. Runny nose, sore itchy eyes; sneezing and wheezing, hay fever can ruin your summer.

It can bring on sinus problems and trigger asthma. Hay Fever is now so common that during summer months weather reports are accompanied by a pollen count prediction often sponsored by a brand of anti-histamine preparation But for those of us who prefer a complementary approach what can we do?

Hagar Basis 250x250

 Hagar Basis, principal of the PR Affiliated Reflexology Academy in London recently talked with Israeli Reflexology Association about her approach to reflexology and fertility issues. 

Hagar teaches internationally and last year was a speaker at the Reflexology in Europe Network (RiEN) Conference in Brussels, and later this year she will be speaking in Taiwan at the ICR conference once again presenting  Reflexology for Women’s Health

1. Is conventional medicine in England being supportive of alternative medicine and specifically reflexology in case of fertility issues?

I recently awoke to find that I’d developed Bell’s Palsy.

Olivia 250

 For anyone who has had it, you know how scary it can be. Luckily for me, I’m aware of the condition and diagnosed myself rather quickly. I couldn’t close my eye, lift my lips to smile or feel the left side of my tongue. A virus causes the trigeminal nerve to stop working, basically, causing facial paralysis and the face to drop.

Scary, but not life threatening!

Day One wasn’t fun...

You don’t know how much you use your facial muscles until they no longer work. Eating, drinking, pouting (no selfies for me for a while...) were all extremely difficult. My words were slurred, ironically the hardest thing to say was “Bell’s Palsy.” I couldn’t blink, causing my eye to dry up making it difficult to see.

Professor_Angela_HobbsIn Praise of Reflexology: a Client's Experience by Prof. Angie Hobbs PhD FRSA

Prominent British Philosopher gives us a fascinating insight into her reflexology journey... 

"As a Professor in Philosophy, I approached reflexology twenty years ago with some wariness.
I have a PhD in Ancient Philosophy from the University of Cambridge and I am not, I think, at all 'suggestible'. I am trained in rational scepticism; I like to see a strong argument based on evidence.
