Question 3 in Our Birthday Blessings GiveAway

At Footsteps In Eden Reflexology we offer . . . well . . . REFLEXOLOGY! Those of you who choose regular reflexology sessions as part of your health & wellness plan as well as those of you who sought it out for specific health challenges all have a story to tell about how reflexology has helped you in your life. I was asked on a talk show a couple of nights ago to share some of the dramatic things I had seen happen through reflexology. I shared a few that came to mind. I know all of you have great stories to share.

So, question #3 and another opportunity to perhaps recieve our wonderful Relaxation Give Away Package: Limiting yourself to just one thing (:-)that will be tough, of course), what would you say is the most dramatic single benefit you have received from reflexology?

For those reading this who have not yet experienced this amazing modality, it will be tough for you to answer this one. Gift yourself with that opportunity and learn for yourself what reflexology has to offer for you. In the Memphis area, we would love to hear from you and help you on your journey of discovery into reflexology. Begin by visiting our website.

2nd Question! Your Answer/Comment is Another Opportunity in Our Give Away

We continue in this month of counting blessings and thankfulness with our celebration of Footsteps In Eden Reflexology's 4th Birthday.

From our very beginning, Footsteps In Eden chose to offer you way more than a reflexology "session." Our goal was to offer you an experience of delight for all the senses. We appeal to your sense of smell through the use of aromatherapy. In our case, high quality therapeutic grade essential oils from Young Living.  Did you know that of all of our senses, the sense of smell is the only one where we react first and think about our response later? Something to think about, but not the question for today.

So, the question is, what is your favorite essential oil, how do you use it, and why? 

To familiarize yourself with essential oils and their benefits, begin your journey of discovery here.

Here It Is! First Question? Your Response Is Your First Entry!

It's your moment to relax. Where do your thoughts turn first? What is your favorite form of relaxation?

Comment here on the blog or on this post on our Footsteps In Eden Reflexology Facebook page. Your answer puts your name in the drawing for a nice relaxation package. (See previous post.) While we are in the Memphis, TN area, we would like to encourage everyone to participate. We will ship the package to any winner within the U.S. (If you're in Memphis area, we'll ask you to pick it up.)

Peace on Earth and in Your Holiday Celebrations!

Tranquility is life to the body." Proverbs 14:30

Peace on Earth. . .A major holiday theme, but often our lives are anything but peaceful during this very busy season of celebration. Running from shopping to cooking to entertaining to travel to parties to decorating and perhaps gift making as well we are often out of steam, stressed, and on edge.

The meaning of the season is almost sure to be lost. Add to that, stress is a major factor in 90% plus of all the dis-eases of our bodies. King Solomon shared the avove quote thousands of years ago. How true it is.  Is it time to take a closer look at those todo lists and calendar apps, and make the time to minimize your holiday stress and maximize your enjoyment of the holiday?

Reflexology's number 1 benefit  is stress reduction. With reduced stress, of course, healing on many levels has opportunity to take place in your body  Footsteps in Eden Reflexology has created a haven for you to spend 30-75 minutes totally relaxing, allowing a treat for all of your senses and an encouragement of your body toward greater balance and wellness.

In the Memphis area, give us a call today. 901-674-3934. Choose a short respite from your many to-dos.

Wishing you Peace on Earth... and in Your Holiday Celebrations!

Staying Healthy with Thieves®

We've had a few cooler days, the kids are back in school in many areas of the country, and you may have thought about fighting germs and colds and flu bugs in the months ahead.

In our home we have found the Thieves® line of products from Young Living™ to be most helpful. We clean with it, we diffuse it, we wash with it and more. My clients often comment on the fresh and clean fragrance of my hand soap. It is diffused at my husband's office. While not everyone there may be in agreement about its effectiveness, the fact that when it runs out they ask for more, speaks for itself. The purse sprays are a healthy option for spraying shopping cart handles, and use in public restrooms. There is also toothpaste, mouthwash and hand sanitizers -- all made with wholesome, good-for-you ingredients. Thieves® has also been shown to be highly effective in removing mold and mold spores. Here's a little history of this great line. It just may surprise you to learn of its origins.

"A blend of highly antiviral, antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-infectious essential oils,  Thieves® was created from research of a group of 15th-century thieves who rubbed oils on themselves to avoid contracting the plague while they robbed the bodies of the dead and dying. When apprehended, these thieves disclosed the formula of herbs, spices, and oils they used to protect themselves in exchange for more lenient punishment."

The entire Thieves® line is available at, where you have the opportunity to learn much more about the high potential of therapeutic grade essential oils.

Really Seeing

Being aware of our senses and their benefits to us as we explore the world around us is a really big deal. A few blog posts and many days moving into weeks ago I share a post about discovering our senses and promised to share more. My plans were temporarily derailed. Back again, intending to expand on the subject.

As I recall building imaginary walls around myself to protect myself from the many pains of my childhood, I wonder how much of the world around me I really missed seeing. Really seeing. It was so easy to stick my nose in a book and escape on someone else's adventure than it was to participate in many of my own. I remember my mother encouraging me to look at "all the beautiful scenery." An invitation I often ignored.

With all the mental details flying through my mind, it often requires intentional effort to "take it all in." I've done much better with this, but it still amazes me at how easily I can have tunnel vision, drive down the street with my mind engaged elsewhere and miss everything. I'm believing I am not alone here. Our hurry up world with its super-sized demands on our time and attention can be an incredibly large distraction for taking time to view the details and beauty of the creation and the created all around us.

How do you make time to see this happen in your life? (pun intended)

Cumulative Benefits of Reflexology

How often do you recommend that I schedule my reflexology appointments?

This is one of the most frequently asked questions from clients. You may have asked it yourself. Rather than offer the "one size fits all" answer, here are some reasons for considering the cumulative effect of reflexology for your personal health and wellness goals.

Health challenges are often a part of life for months and even years -- often many years. When clients choose weekly or bi-weekly sessions, and make these a priority over a span of months and in some cases years, they often experience amazing results. (Some sessions may bring nearly indiscernible baby steps. Other times the client is amazed at the dramatic changes.) By allowing their whole being to enter that deep state of relaxation on a regular basis they encourage their whole body toward greater health and wellness for a lifetime.

Sometimes new clients "try" a few sessions over 6 or 8 weeks time expecting to see significant results for their long-term challenges. They become disappointed and choose to stop with reflexology. From experiences in my practice, I know that those with the most awesome stories to share are those who have chosen to continue regular sessions for months and longer, believing that positive changes are occurring within their body. Ultimately, they are most often rewarded with enhanced health and wellness.

New energy patterns are introduced into the body through reflexology. These are helping to bring all systems of the body into greater balance and strengthening the immune system. Consistent regular sessions help to maintain this enhanced state of health. I have some clients who consider regular reflexology to be their "health plan." They report such great benefits that their body knows when it has missed even one session.

Reflexologists do not diagnose or treat for disease. They do not prescribe or adjust medications. Please consult with your medical professional for your health challenges and concerns.

Several years ago I finally began to come to my senses -- or at least to begin to pay more attention to these five enormous assets. With an often painful home life and being  somewhat of a curiosity in my family growing up, I learned to tune out -- well -- almost everything. It was my survival mode. I've learned this great talent is not necessarily my best friend.

Our five senses -- seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and touching -- are so important in our discovery of life around us, and our overall well-being. A few days ago I posted a link on my Facebook page, briefly outlining using our five senses to recharge. Intrigued by this article because of my personal experiences and light bulb moments, I believed the article would touch others as well.

The article quickly skimmed the surface. In the next several blog posts I choose to be transparent with you, my readers, sharing my story of learning to experience and value the senses more deeply. By sharing, I pray your life my be enhanced as well.

Guest Post on Hypnotherapy

Hypnosis – What is it all about?

By guest blogger: Jen Froggatt
If I was to say to you that hypnosis could help you relax and de-stress, you would think of watch being swayed side to side and being told, 'you are getting very sleepy', am I right? Well you couldn't be further from the truth. Although hypnotherapy is a relatively new therapy, many have been using it as a relaxation technique for years.
Hypnotherapy works by communicating with your subconscious mind, to help you overcome negative thought patterns which in turn helps you to relax. A qualified hypnotherapist will help you achieve a deeply relaxed state (different to sleep) before starting your hypnotherapy session so you can use your full imagination.  Many compare this state as being in a daydream.
Hypnosis for stress can be very effective because hypnotherapy can help alter your reactions to possible stressful situations. A hypnotherapist can change your thought pattern so when faced with these situations you have a much more positive reaction. This is because it is not the situation that causes stress (otherwise everyone would be stressed about the same thing at the same time) it's the way we react to this situation that causes stress. When you are less stressed you will then find easier to relax and wind down at the end of the day.

Reflexology: A Gift for Your Feet & Your Whole Body!!!

How kind are you to your feet? We call 'em our "dogs," but do we treat them as the beloved members of the family, like many do their furry friends?

Alice was certainly concerned about her feet as she grew taller and taller in the 2nd chapter of Lewis Carroll's famous tale:

"'Good-bye, feet!' (for when she looked down at her feet, they seemed to be almost out of sight, they were getting so far off). 'Oh, my poor little feet, I wonder who will put on your shoes and stockings for you now, dears? I'm sure I shan't be able! I shall be a great deal too far off to trouble myself about you: you must manage the best way you can; —but I must be kind to them,' thought Alice, 'or perhaps they won't walk the way I want to go! Let me see: I'll give them a new pair of boots every Christmas.'

And she went on planning to herself how she would manage it. 'They must go by the carrier,' she thought; 'and how funny it'll seem, sending presents to one's own feet! And how odd the directions will look!'"

I see great wisdom in Alice's thinking. Just from the perspective of my feet carrying me every where I choose to go, it seems being nice to them is more of a necessity than a chore. Who needs feet talking back?

Did you know that every organ, gland and part of your body is mirrored on your feet? When there are challenges in your body they show up in your feet, and when your feet have been mistreated that well may show up in the rest of your body. Reflexology may be your perfect solution. You and your feet and all the rest of you may be ecstatically happy that you finish reading this post, and take the suggested "steps" to be kind to your feet!

With the beginning of a new year focus often turns to sustaining or improving your health. Consider the option available to you to treat yourself to an amazingly rejuvenating experience. Reflexology encourages every system of your body toward greater balance, inviting your whole being into a deep state of relaxation and allowing it to find its place of enchanced health and well being.

At Footsteps In Eden Reflexology we make sending gifts to your feet much less complicated than the steps Alice encountered in gifting hers. What's more it is a treat for not only your feet, but your whole body as well. What will reflexology do for you? Besides being a most amazing experience, here are some ot the benefits you may expect from a reflexology session.


  1. Reduces stress
  2. Revitalizes energy
  3. Assists functioning of circulation
  4. Assists functioning of nervous system
  5. Assists cleansing of toxins from body (immune system support)
  6. Assists the harmonizing of the body's systems naturally
  7. Is Prevantative/Supportive/Non-Invasive Caring Touch.
Visit Footsteps In Eden website to learn more about reflexology and Lynn Watson, Reflexologist. We have sessions and packages to meet everyone's needs.

Footsteps In Eden Reflexology Offering More Service Options in 2011

Re-evaluation on a continuing basis is absolutely necessary for a business owner wishing to thrive. My Memphis' area Reflexology business has been in process over the last few months. What began as an experiment in December, gave birth to a revamp of our services offered as we begin the New Year 2011.

Health & wellness plans are close to the heart of many of us. With a new year we also often bring a redifined focus in this area. Reflexology's benefits have such an abundant potential for helping to encourage the body toward healing from almost all health challenges. It is also considered by many to be the perfect therapy for maintaining health and wellness.

Since opening our doors in November of 2007, we have offered only an ultimate relaxation experience. With the above paragraph in mind, along with time constraints, budgets, and the individual's desire for choice, we have created 3 unique options for visits to Footsteps In Eden Reflexology. We have certainly kept what we believe to be the most wonderful experience and option, and definitely the best value.

A Little Touch of Eden:
30 Minute Session -- Especially designed for those with more limited time constraints, these sessions offer a spot of relaxation, health, and wellness. Enjoy a short escape to a place of stillness and refreshment.

An Oasis in Eden
60 Minute Session -- One definition of “oasis” includes this statement: “People actually accomplish more when they take time for short rests.” Our 60 minute sessions begin with hot moist aromatherapy infused foot wraps. You’ll find your body and mind quickly unwinding, bringing you into an oasis of relaxation and helping to encourage your body to greater balance, health, wellness, and rejuvenation.

A Haven in Eden:
75 Minute Ultimate Experience -- Enhancing your experience with additional minutes of reflexology and relaxation, these sessions conclude with the touch of hot stone therapy and a second helping of hot moist aromatherapy infused foot wraps. Other luxurious touches may be included.

My work is done from my home -- a park like setting in Bartlett, TN. All sessions are experienced in our warmly inviting relaxation room, purposely designed for enjoyment by all your senses.

Maternity Reflexology and "A Little Peace of Eden" Wedding Packages are also available.

Further information on reflexology, our services, and our fees for services may be found on our website: The website is now, also, fully accessible from iPhone.

Footsteps In Eden Reflexology Featured In Buckley's Grill (Memphis) Newsletter

What a Christmas gift this was! On December 23rd, Buckley's (a wonderful local restaurant in Memphis TN) quarterly newsletter arrived in the mailboxes of 25,000+ homes. The gift (for me) was a full page article about Footsteps In Eden Reflexology. The article is available on the Footsteps In Eden website.

Written by a friend (much easier than tooting your own horn), this article has blessed the business tremendously; and, I pray, the community as well. Happy to take the opportunity here to share this good news with regular readers and those who may stumble upon this blog.

This full color, 35 page magazine is loaded with photos of restaurant guests, articles of all kinds, a few ads, and coupons. This issue contained such points of interest as "Make a Fan Cleaning Tool with Items You Already Have," a little history about the Scottish New Year, some inspiration on "Live Well in a Small Space," and a book review of THE MOLOTOV BOX by local Memphis author, Daniel Johnson; and much much more. You get the idea.

This little publication is a great big wonderful PR tool, and I feel privileged for my reflexology business to have been included! THANK YOU, Buckleys!
