On Friday, May 8th, Jose´ was invited to give samples of his reflexolgy treatments to the students attending the Health Fair. The Health Fair was put on by the nursing students of Pacific Union College. They were presenting information about various health topics. Many of them made their way to Jose´'s station to learn more about reflexology.
Jose and I met in 2007, and since then he has healed me many times over, addressing all sorts of ailments. As a matter of fact, I was limping when we first met. Plantar fasciitis had plagued me before, and had come back. Jose said he could help me through reflexology, but I had never experienced it, so I felt a little uncertain.
The first time he worked on me, it was a sensation that I wasn't really prepared for. I knew that reflexology involved the stimulation of the reflexes on the feet that correspond with the various organs and systems of the body, but I didn't imagine that it would feel the way it did. It was almost a sharp, sort of snapping sensation at times, like a hard tapping moving across the different parts of my feet. Sometimes it felt good, like the massaging of sore muscles, and sometimes it could hurt so bad that I would pull my foot away in response!
My foot didn't get better right away, and I was a little skeptical, to be quite honest. I let him work on me again, keeping my mind open to the possibilities. I don't remember now how many treatments it took, but the problem went away and never came back!
Then, my TMJ (the temporomandibular joint) was acting up, worse than ever. I had been living with a popping or clicking in my jaw for many years. Whenever I would eat something particularly chewy, like a bagel for example, the clicking would begin. Suddenly, there was a click that caused my jaw to sort of get stuck. I could barely open my mouth to bite on a banana, or anything else for that matter. It was a pretty miserable feeling...annoying too. Jose worked on me, and, once again, I'm not sure how many treatments it took, but the problem not only went away, it has never come back...not a click, not a pop!
Jose has told me many stories about the people he has helped over the years. I must say, that I am somewhat jealous of those people who he has worked on just once, and their problem is cured, and Jose is forgotten as they go about their lives feeling good once again. For me, it almost always takes several treatments!
I am starting this blog to share some of the stories I hear from Jose every day. I think it is important for people to discover what an amazing healer he is. He is often called a 'Shaman', 'Miracle Worker', 'Channeler', and more. He continues to be amazed by his own abilities to heal people, and he is often torn when deciding what direction to head next when so many people need him.
Here is a quick list of some of the amazing successes:
Cured a boy's asthma, and it has never returned
Helped people who couldn't walk to walk (even jog) again
Helped couples to conceive
Has detected the presence of lumps (possible cancer) that were checked by the doctor and caught before they got worse. Sometimes, he has even been able to make lumps go away!
There are many more stories that aren't coming to mind right now, and there will be more to come. My hope is to capture some of those stories in this blog, either by transcribing my conversations with Jose, or by you, his clients, adding your own stories to this blog. I would really love to hear from you, and the sharing of your story might help someone out there who is experiencing the same problem you had and might find some relief through reflexology.
I am so grateful that Jose entered my life those many years ago, and I look forward to the many years ahead!
