The experience brought home to me the effectiveness of the focused and authoritative type of treatment she gives.
It is painful at times, but it is a therapeutic type of pain, something which you feel throughout the body. Instead of just lying there in a somnolent state I was aware of the effects the treatment was having. It was certainly stimulating, and as I have mentioned, therapeutically painful, but at the same time liberating.
I have always given robust treatments of this type, because it gives results. To me, the only criterion is to give the type of treatment which benefits my client.
This type of treatment is not brutality, but given with positive and understanding authority, always taking the type of client into account.
It is surprising that when clients experience this type of treatment, they never want to go back to the unauthoritative treatments they had received before.
Unfortunately I only know a few reflexologists, who work this way in the U.K. obviously there must be many others throughout the world.
It seems that there is a general fear of using proper, effective pressure when giving a treatment.
This is such a pity, and does a disservice to the therapist, reflexology and client.
Reflexology sets you free!
