While these workshops are part of Holistic Reflexology, the eight principles, in some ways they are STAND ALONE units. In other ways they complement each other and help to explain the concepts and ideas I will present.
Why am I sick? Discover
the messages of your body systems, disease and symptoms
Based on Principle #1 - Anatomy and physiology reflect another
perspective. The workshop presumes that body is not in discomfort just to
make life unpleasant. It is trying to attract attention to a specific
issue that needs attention. Knowing only the basics of each system and
its relevant organs is the beginning of understanding what the body is trying

Why are my feet sore?
Discover the messages of your feet
Based on Principle #2 to #8 of my book Holistic
Reflexology, the eight principles
The workshop presumes that the foot is not in pain to make life
unpleasant. It is trying to attract attention to a specific issue that
Chakras reveal flow and blockages in energy and looks at the chakra areas on the foot and the issues they
contain. It then considers common foot ailments and conditions
that appear in these areas. In combing the two it suggests a
possible cause for the discomfort e.g. a spur on the heel, tinea on the toes,
plantar wart on the ball of the foot.
Elements express their energy through the toes and discusses the elements; air, fire, water and earth, as
expressed through the toes and considers how the shape and texture of the toes
can reveal excess or lack
Organs hold emotions, often suppressed and focuses on the emotions held within the major organs and
how a painful reflex in the foot can be an indicator of emotions rather than a
physical problem. This sections also considers the theory that energy and
matter are interchangeable and the possible results of suppressing emotions
and right define who, how and when and defines who the problem is associated with, male or female,
when it happened, past or present and how it unfolded
Shape, texture and position show strength and weakness, potential and challenge; noticing the shape, texture and position of the foot is
another way to collect information about areas in life where a person may feel
pressured, in need of protection, be inflexible, show stoic resolve. This
section also discusses common foot problems such as Morton's neuroma

loved your workshop and it is the only one that makes sense to me because
it is individualised and holistic. Others tend to ‘read’ feet.
For example how many times have I heard that cracked heels means being
stubborn! Your take on cracked heels makes so much more sense in
relation to the chakras – a break away / split or separation from
tribe. I hear myself saying ‘yes, you’ve got it Glenda, that’s just
what it is!’ I think your stories
are wonderful and they are fast becoming your signature way of
teaching. The stories and then your analysis afterwards is a great
teaching tool and certainly explains your work clearly and shows the
found it fascinating how, just by asking a few simple questions of your
client you were able to offer them some advice or ideas to help them
de-stress their lives as well as giving them the wonderful relaxing
reflexology on their feet. It really is a win win situation for your
client. I also enjoy listening to
your many stories and always take something away to think about.
Thoroughly recommend holistic reflexology to any practitioner.
Glenda...have been reading through your book with fresh eyes since our
workshop....everything you say in the Throat Chakra Healing is so true. I
think I will have to buy lots of copies of your book to give to
everyone...I know so many people who would benefit from the insights in
workshop I got lots out of it.
course is an empowering experience; thought-provoking and teaches how to
think well outside-the-square with respect to health symptoms and
the underlying causes.
found your workshop was "succinct and insightful" and I look
forward to the opportunity to attend an astrology workshop,
and perhaps one to cover the personal growth stuff.
Holistic Reflexology workshops confirmed for me the mind, body &
spirit connection that enables our clients to heal.
thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. It helped me to approach the feet
from totally different thought patterns which gives you more insight into
causes and conditions. I came away totally inspired.
was wonderful. I enjoyed it very much, not only for the information
you gave us but I loved listening to you and your experiences. I
look forward to the next one.
me, Glenda has put together the last pieces of my jig-saw. I know that I
still have a way to go but I think that maybe the rest of the journey will
be a little easier now that the self-awareness has reached a
just wanted to thank you again for a wonderful workshop. It has certainly
given me a deeper understanding into life in general.
am feeling very blessed and changed for the better somehow due to the
weekend. Awesome weekend Glenda!
- I have used what I learned with
three clients so far and it worked - they had insight into
themselves. Another practitioner who attended the workshop
told me she also has had the same thing happen.
