It is with great sadness that we tell you of the passing of Anna Jeoffroy-Salmon.
Together with her husband Philip Salmon, Anna was a founding director of Professional Reflexology, and loved by all who knew her. Until Philip’s death in 2011 the couple ran the Philip Salmon School, and were inspirational tutors, teaching their brand of reflexology and philosophy to many hundreds of students. It is an honour to have known both Anna and Philip, and to have counted them as friends.
PR Podcast # 003 with Jan Williamson
Based in Devon, Jan Williamson is Principal of The School of Precision Reflexology She is an experienced Reflexology tutor, yoga teacher and author. She teaches precision work through her CPD courses, both in the UK and abroad.
Precision work is unusual in that it is not reliant on force or physical pressure to achieve its aims. Each client is treated as an individual and receives the benefits in a manner that is effective for them at the time that they receive the treatment. In this way, each person's own energies are used in the healing process and will be appropriate on all levels of their being – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

Members.... Please ensure that your Directory details and your webpage are up to date and published.
Publication does not happen automatically, because we cannot post Member details on our website without your permission, and it is up to each Member to make sure that their entries are up to date. It is really easy to update your membership details. Log into the Member Area, and open the ‘Edit My Details’ menu. For example, if you move or change your telephone number you can change this under ‘Edit My Personal Details’. This contains contact details PR need for Member registration, but are not published.
‘Edit My Webpage and Listing’ details are those which will appear in your directory listing and on your personal webpage. Please remember that everything that you put into your practice details will be published, so for example, if you work from home and do not want your full address to be published simply don't complete that section. You must publish your postcode for the directory, but you can just use the first part for privacy if you wish e.g. SW19 or CV34.
Please check your details to make sure that they are correct. It will only take a couple of moments do so, and it would be a shame not to take advantage of these free benefits giving such great publicity for your practice.
