My name is Brigitte, and I have the pleasure of welcoming you in my native French with a big American-style smile. Culturally, emotionally and professionally, I am blessed with a French heritage and an American citizenship.
I have been taking ongoing classes over the last 25 years in order to share great information with you. I traveled around the world before coming in this country to enrich my experience of life. I lived in a spiritual center (Yogaville) for 6 months to develop more spiritual knowledge and go inside to be more attuned for my services. I spent 10 days in the jungle in Peru, to deepen my spiritual experiences with God and nature. Thriving always for more information and life experiences in service to you.

Reflexology literally means the study of how one part reflects or relates to another part of the body. Your body is all connected on every levels; you cannot isolate any one part. The body is like a map with reflex points all over.
One of Reflexology's pioneers was Dr. William Fitzgerald, who brought it to the United States from England in 1913. The practice was originally called "Zone Therapy" on the premise that each zone acts as a kind of link or electrical impulse to each organ or gland along the same meridian.
Reflexology has been used for eons from ancient Egypt to today with the re-birthing of this old science. The Kirlian photography produces the beautiful electro-magnetic field that surrounds the body, animals, plants, objects and the whole planet. Some people are able to see this Energy Field.
You have 72.000 nerve endings on each foot. Simply by pressing the reflex points, your body begins to balance and heal naturally. It helps break down the calcification deposits or toxins to be transported by the blood to the points of elimination. The informal name is "crunchies". These toxins are undissolved acids, such as lactic, uric or calcium salts. Breaking them help in restoring a better electro-magnetic communication within the whole zone and consequently the parts of the body in that zone.
Reflexology is safe, non-invasive, relaxing complementary health therapy. It persuades the body to biologically and electrically balance the energy/chi/prana pathways running through the body. Blockages in these pathways may lead to illness or dis-ease. Injuries and stress may block them too.
My teacher Margaret d’Urso studied under Reflexology's stellar pioneer, Eunice D. Ingham (1889-1974). Eunice said: "If one will be sure to keep his feet in an entire state of health, he may be certain that he cannot be sick in any department of his systems".
To maintain a healthy body, Reflexology is a necessity--not a luxury, The Egyptians and other civilizations (Chinese, Grecian, Indian, Japanese), and even Cherokee Indians knew this all very well. For example, most women spend more time on their hair and nails than taking care of their physical and internal organs. Men are often too busy to take care of themselves so they accumulate stress that causes may serious diseases (80% of diseases are stress related). According to a recent radio report on 100.3 FM "75% of employees are stressed about their jobs". According to many of my clients, my sessions are even more efficient for stress management than as a form of massage.
Overall, Reflexology strengthens all the systems in the body during the treatment. By allowing free flow of the lymph fluids throughout the body, the residual benefits include improved blood circulation and a strengthened immune system. It relieves pain and stiffness brought about by sports injuries, exercises, improper posture and wearing high heel shoes. This is one of my specialties; I help a lot of people--such as nurses or runners--suffering from Plantar Fasciitis.
Even if you are not experiencing any pain or physical discomfort, reflexology is very beneficial if done regularly and the right way. I have clients who have been seeing me regularly for many years, and they really feel the difference over their whole bodies. Their mantra is "Brigitte, I need to see you!". Reflexology is one of the great ways to take care of yourself and is the BEST FOR STRESS!

Please note that you will find many people advertising for Reflexology in spas, in Asian spas and with massage therapists. Brigitte Reflexology is unique and different than the ones cited above and she did a school of reflexology (230 hours including 100 hr mandatory practice) and not a massage school. Asian spas techniques are different.
You can find a lot of reflexologists around but most of them did 4 h, 1 day or 2 days class or as continuing mandatory education (for massage therapists) and got a certificate almost no training. This is not enough training to be a good reflexologist. The minimum amount of hours required for Certification is 130 hours or more per the National Association of Reflexology. So be aware of imitation or less trained reflexologist unless they can show you a diploma of 130 hours minimum of training. It may be cheaper but you will not get the same expertise or results.
