About Holistic Reflexology
 
Reflexology is the study of reflex points on the feet which correspond to each organ and system in the body. One of the theories of reflexology suggests that energy flows from vital organs and systems through channels in the body and terminate to form the reflex points of the feet.
 
When this energy flow is blocked by stress, tension or congestion, disease occurs. By massaging these reflex points, the person is relaxed, the circulation improves and the blockages are broken down, harmony and energy balance within the body are restored.
 
 
Dr. John Neumann is one of Canada's most experienced and knowledgeable researchers of Reflexology. He has spent over 30 years as a student and teacher of Reflexology. He also specializes in Preventive, and Complimentary Medicine. His background is in Biology with extensive training in the Medical and Chiropractic Sciences. Dr. John is an honorary member and the Canadian representative for the Spa Physicians Association of Kneipp in Germany. He is considered an expert in stress management, headaches (migraines and tension), the Kneipp system of Hydrotherapy, Spa Therapy, Ayurvedic Medicine and Swedish Relaxation Massage. He is the founding member of the Alberta Association of Therapeutic Masseurs, and was the first Clinician in Alberta to introduce a professional code of ethics and malpractice insurance for massage therapists. The center of his outspoken philosophy is the fundamental value that Massage therapy encompasses compassionate care and intentional healing. He has always voiced his concern in the Calgary and Edmonton bylaw process, as well as, with the Alberta Health and Wellness regulatory board regarding these issues.
Dr. John Neumann has inspired countless students, clients and holistic health professionals in his decorated career. His dream of sharing the knowledge and power of holistic healing is coming to an end. He will be retiring from teaching after this Spring's Holistic Reflexology course. If you've ever considered learning Reflexology from Canada's best or looking to enhance your current skills, this is your last chance!

  • A Case of Irritable Bowel syndrome

    "Dr. Hoffman was treating a 40-year-old, professional man, “very skeptical and rational”, for irritable bowel syndrome. “It’s a non-specific intestinal problem that can be really debilitating”, he says. “The man felt completely out of control and powerless in dealing with it.” He’s already seen a gastroenterologist for tests. We assessed his digestion, tried digestive aids, even manipulated his diet and found he wasn’t allergic to anything. We treated him for Candida, which often causes bloating, and gas, and that didn’t work. We worked on his style of eating. We tried stress reduction and relaxation, and that didn’t take. “Almost in desperation I said, “Go to a reflexologist, and who knows? Maybe that’ll will work”, And somehow it did!"
