I know Thurman Greco not only as a Reiki Master and teacher but as friend, yoga student, minister, political activist, animal lover, reflexologist and the list goes on. Thurman has a depth of experience in many healing modalities. As a Reiki practitioner her healing hands move intuitively and effectively over her client feeding them with gentle healing energy. Her teaching is intuitive as well, guiding each student skillfully and easefully. She instills confidence in her students so that they are inspired to reach their highest potential as healers. I am forever grateful to Thurman for passing to me these ancient healings that support me, my family and my clients daily. She provides continuing support for me and all of her students to share our experiences, to learn from and practice with one another and to deepen our practice. Thurman has also passed these teachings on to my son, Mason. Mason became a Master Reiki Practitioner at the age of 19. At this age it has been such a gift. It is a guiding force in many of the decisions he is making about his life. Thurman is also an ordained minister. She performed the wedding ceremony for my husband, Steve and me two years ago and for that I am also forever grateful.

Reflexology for me has been a remarkable learning experience – one that is continuing each and everyday – whether it be reading an article, attending a workshop or yoga class and most importantly through my clients. Each and every one has contributed not only to their spiritual and physical growth but also to mine. Each reflexology session is really “custom made” for the individual client. Some sessions are all about talking while others are completely silent. Whichever it may be, healing is happening.
Essential oils are used during a session with Lavender being the predominant one. It is calming and soothing as it brings the client to a much needed relaxed state. Depending on the client’s needs I have also used peppermint (especially if one is experiencing head pain), eucalyptus (to energize oneself), and patchouli. I always ask the cliebt which they would like – and in some cases have used a combination of two oils.
Sage is a must. The healing space is always “saged” before a session and many times the client wants sage incense burned. It is a very purifying herb and I find it brings you into a very spiritual place.
Nutrition is also a major factor when working with clients. Some clients have digestive problems and are encouraged to seek advice from a professional such as a nutritionist. Working with a nutritionist and receiving reflexology is a “win-win” situation for the client. Discussions take place as to what foods are a must and what need to be avoided. I stress the importance of an alkaline diet and eating organic foods.
Reflexology is not only physical but spiritual as well. In my practice I bring into the session the correlation between the area on the foot (physical) and the chakra it is connected to. I also use some Kabbalistic modalities, whether it be letters or numbers. An example would be if I am working on a particular point on the foot I usually work that 18 times. The number 18 means chai or life. Another number would be 26 which is the number for God. I also call in Reiki to bring in additional healing and awareness to the session.
I truly enjoy being a reflexologist. When working on a client I find myself making a connection with a higher realm, asking for help and guidance and for light and love to enter the healing space.

In my Reiki Initiation with Thurman, I did the unexpectedly unique. I give distant healing to this past life of mine and feel blessings ripple through to me out to all women and men who share universal soul stories questing inner and outer beauty; what it means in its Illuminated Form.
I am sensitive to the suble.
And, dogs are welcome in the class, so that makes it extra special. I deeply appreciate the opportunity to be learned on.
