ROI EXPEDITION 2011 TO INDIA

Reflexology Outreach International Expedition 2011 To India

In Sep 2011 a team of three, Mari Singleton, Marilyn Williams and Jane Jones went to India to teach reflexology at the Rangammal Hospital in Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu. Rangammal Hospital is a charity which was founded 30 years ago by Sylvis Wright, a nurse/lecturer from Leeds (www.sylviawrighttrust)

At the hospital we trained 14 people, 9 nurses, 2 physiotherapists, 1 HIV counsellor and 2 day care centre staff who work with disabled children.

The students were responsive and focused, and quickly understood the reflex points relating to the body map. By the end of the week they were confident to do a full foot treatment and take a case history.

Each day we had a question and answer session. We could sense that they were thinking of their patients and wanted to know where to treat for specific conditions, so they were planning ahead.
 
The feedback we got from Sylvia was really positive and she would like us to return to do more training. Provisionally we plan to return for 2 weeks next February. In this time we would offer training to beginners, further training to those who attended this year and include hand reflexology. We will focus on specific conditions and how to treat infertility, diabetes, sciatica, arthritis, chronic kidney disease and cerebral palsy.
