In this 2-hour workshop, we will explore the complex connections within the neurological system to help better understand how to tend to our client’s experience of pain.

Students will learn how the brain receives, processes, stores, and interprets pain; and the reflexology points, areas, and techniques to address various pain types.

Students will learn to address muscular, inflammatory, diabetic, peripheral, radicular, functional, neuropathic, and emotional pain. They will also understand pain cycles, the neurotransmitters and hormones responsible for the transmission of pain, and how to interrupt the pain response will also be explored.

This reflexology master class will be live/online via Zoom and will provide 2 ARCB CEs.

Your RAO sponsored an Ayurvedic Reflexology workshop presented by Sharon Stathis on Saturday and Sunday, September 28-29, 2019 at the Ohio State University Student Union.

Sharon taught us Ayurvedic fundamental principles, Ayurvedic foot massage as well as Marma therapy fundamental principles, Marma therapy for the feet and Kasa bowl work for the feet along with Ayurvedic Reflexology for the feet.

Just a couple Student Comments:

“Thank you for this incredible workshop! My clients absolutely love this technique and have experienced great results!  Sharon is an amazing teacher and I wish we could have done SMART II.
I had a wonderful time and what I learned has been priceless.”


“Here is what I liked about our workshop with Sharon Stathis

A)  Sharon’s style of teaching was clear and logical.
B)  She obviously loves Ayurvedic Reflexology.
C)  It was a joy to experience her passion for the work.
D)  The work as a routine seems very adaptable to session work.
E)  I loved learning about Ayurveda in the format Sharon presented, easy on this old brain.
F)  The obvious camaraderie and love between her and her husband was delightful.
G)  The closing duet was a grand bonus!!
What I didn’t like about the experience
A) I didn’t like that I didn’t sign up for SMART II, to better get it into my head and body.  My bad.”


Reflexology Fundamental Principles is available on

Your RAO will continue to explore education opportunities to expand your knowledge and help you develop into the practitioner you wish to be.

On October 20, 2018, the first networking meeting was held at Hilliard Branch Library. It was a wonderful time of connecting with other reflexologists and getting to know each other. There was a professional photographer who took headshot pictures of all in attendance and also a group picture.


Mary Ellen Shupert, a Certified Yoga teacher and trainer led us through Yoga exercises and provided resources for us to continue our Yoga experience.

Sue Ricks presented Neuro Linguistic Programming. Once again, an opportunity for us to gain a greater understanding of ourselves and our clients. Sue also shared her newest book, ‘E-motion, Energy in Motion’ which covers messages of the body in its pre-launch form.

We then shared business practices and marketing ideas to promote the growth of our business.

Our final 90 minutes of the meeting was a Reflexology exchange.

The positive energy of all the members in attendance was emotionally rewarding and uplifting. Thanks to all who were able to attend.
