Long ago, after reading Mildred Carter’s “Foot Reflexology” a number of people gave me positive feedback on their sessions. This sparked my initial interest in the field. I later discovered Eunice Ingham’s “The Stories the Feet Can Tell” and I became hooked. From 2013 through 2019 I completed course work from International Institute of Reflexology Levels 1-3. I also attended the Academy of Reflective Wellness graduating in 2015. I became ARCB certified in 2016.
Jean Glickman, NBCR – Recording Secretary
I am a nationally certified reflexologist through ARCB and a member of RAA. I was a member of GRO (Georgia Reflexology Group) and on their board until I moved to Charlotte last year.
From experiences my family and I had in dealing with health related issues, I came to understand that symptoms were just our bodies trying to communicate to us that something was wrong. I became frustrated when it often seemed our health care professionals were more concerned with silencing the body than getting at the root of the problem and healing it. I realized the body was created to constantly work to stay in balance and healthy, and that the best healer of my body, was my body itself. I stumbled on reflexology while looking for a modality that would encourage and come alongside the body, to help it function as it was made to.
Starting in 2013, I took my first reflexology course, an aromatherapy course and eventually the advanced reflexology course with Roz Zolinger, at her clinic in Atlanta, Heal Center. I went on to get my ARCB certification and started practicing part-time going on 2 years. I recently took Thai reflexology taught by Karen Ball through her Academy of Ancient Healing. While on the GRO board, I sat on a legislation committee, as we were dealing yet again with the massage board trying to pass a modified version of their massage law in which they sought to take away our exemption. During this time, I had the privilege to speak before a GA house sub committee on behalf of reflexologists.
Part of my practice in Georgia included going to health food stores 1 to 2 times a month to talk to patrons about reflexology and do mini sessions. I especially enjoyed getting the word out about what a wonderful, natural, safe modality it is.
