AoR Members’ Seminar… summary and feedback

August 31, 2006by Helen Perkins

This introduction to Intuition and Sound Reflexology was well received as Helen shared and entertained the audience with her own – and client – experiences. The audience understood her concept of using sound to balance the reflexes and were happy ‘to have a go!’

In order to work effectively with intuition reflexology, we need to be focused at all times on the condition of the reflexes. Helen explained that being prepared to work with our extra senses requires six steps, of which she would present three for this session. She asked us for examples of how we might carry out these steps: some of us visualise, some use their feelings and others have an awareness of, a perception or a practical sense about these steps.

Step 1: to be present in the moment and grounded
Step 2: to ensure the mind is clear of all personal thoughts
Step 3: to have the intention to work in your client’s best interests and to 100% of your ability

Helen asked us each to apply these self-preparation steps before engaging in the following activities.

Vibration of the reflex – developing sensitivity in the hands for intuition reflexology
When using her senses to interpret a reflex point Helen is ‘sensing’ the vibration of that area under her finger pad. ‘Intuition’ is a combination of all the senses together and searching for a deeper meaning. “Trusting your intuition is the key,” she said. “It doesn’t matter if you think you are imagining it or feeling nothing, as long as you accept there is an extra-sensory perception. This is why the steps are so important… a disciplined approach to get you into the frame of mind to help you concentrate.”

Activity 1: Your comfort zone
Helen demonstrated how we would work with a partner, one person remaining still and the other using their hands as a sensory tool around the person’s energy field or comfort zone. Many people said they had experienced tingling, heat and coldness in their hands. Some people felt drawn to a certain area or could ‘see’ where they needed to be.

Activity 2: Warming up for sound reflexology
Helen had us standing up and singing from the Sound of Music ‘Doe a Deer!’ to warm up our vocal chords! She demonstrated how when singing or humming a certain note and pitch, those sounds resonate in our body. We were all able to experience this.

Sound Reflexology © matches the vibration of the reflex point with the vibration of sound and brings the reflex into balance
Helen explained when she finds a reflex point with her hands that she intuitively senses is out of balance, she will determine its vibration and match it with the correct sound and pitch. The note may be a vowel sound and a toning, or a consonant and a shorter sound. More is explored in the Intuition and Sound Reflexology © workshop course.

Later, Helen demonstrated using intuition and sound on five reflex points on the hand. A camera was used to show the audience. She emphasised how the self-preparation steps were carried out first, to help focus on achieving the best outcome. Then, she went through each reflex point again while the audience worked in pairs using the hands for reflexology. She asked if the audience could intuitively ‘sense’ the vibration of the reflex point and if it was hot, cold, tingly, or identify any other kind of awareness, similar to that which they had experienced during the ‘Comfort Zone’ activity.

The delegates were instructed to follow the hand diagram, where each reflex point had already been assigned a sound. These were:

  • Solar plexus – sound of ‘oh’
  • Shoulder – sound of ‘eye’
  • Pituitary – sound of ‘yuuoo’
  • Adrenals – sound of ‘oo’
  • Coccyx – sound of ‘uh’

Participants had to intuitively decide upon the pitch needed for their partner’s hand reflex point they were holding and vocalise the sounds. There was some giggling at first, but all joined in with the help of Helen and her assistants. Many experienced sensations not only in the reflexes, but also in their corresponding body parts! A fun session which was informative and innovative.
