An Tigh Padraig Watt or Padraig Watt’s house in Irish, is steeped in local history.

Useful tips for reflexologist: Many reflexologists ask me why is it important to be aware of energy transfer between client and therapists
Just a thought
I reply that if we are unaware of energy transference we could become exhausted by the therapy. Effective productive and healthy therapists prepare correctly. This groundwork begins the moment we start to train as therapists, continues with every client we meet and finishes as soon as we end a treatment.
When we are training as therapists we need to be able to resolve any personal and emotive problems before embarking on a career as a therapist. As the good book says, ‘Physician heal thyself’ (Luke 4: 23) which suggests that if we have unresolved issues we will project these onto our clients. Secondly, make the therapeutic atmosphere as positive as possible. The use of blessed salt and water helps to rid any negativity that may be in the working environment. We must be mindful of our thoughts and actions, focusing only on Love and Divine inspiration in whomsoever we perceive…

Hurricane relief at the human level
Hobie, Hope you can put this under its own block, I’m sorry I couldn’t think of another way to get this to you.
I woke Monday morning as 1a.m. to the sound of my phone ringing. A good friend called to ask if I was okay. Since my daughter lives a few miles from me, I could only think “God what has happened and how do I get there?” The wind was gusting between 70 and 100+ miles per hour then. Instead this “friend” asks “Am I alright and have I lost anything?” I looked around quickly with one of the best 5 inch flashlights ever, and said, Yeah, the back fence, a bunch of tree limbs, and a good night’s sleep.”
In response to his useless call, I spent the next half hour texting him every 2 minutes…

Just breathe gently in and out, through your nostrils. If you can, sit down, uncross your legs , place your feet firmly on the floor with your back straight and unsupported if possible, place your hands on your knees, with your palms facing down.
For the next few moments, permit your mind to really concentrate on your senses, one at a time, starting with your sense of Touch
- Become aware of the clothes on your body and the play of air on your face and hands.Feel your hands resting on your knees, what sensation you are feeling: Is it warm or cold? Without any effort at all, allow your mind to focus on your hands as they rest on your knees.

Tips for reflexologists.
Have you ever observed how clients can become emotional during or after a reflexology?
If your answer to this question is yes I am sure you will agree with me when I say that it is important to have the necessary knowledge and skills to treat emotional issues that can arise during a reflexology session.
Our code of ethics highlights that we as reflexologists, make wholistic evaluations (No3; 2010) considering the spiritual, psychological as well as the physical causes of ill health. This makes us different from other therapists like psychiatry or psychology, which are more unilateral in their approach and there is still a stigma attached to attending these therapists. (www.seechange.ie) whereas reflexology is seen as non-invasive and non-threatening.
I work in the granary therapy centre which I share with several psychotherapists and they smile when they see me making the herbal tea. Making tea is not…
