Welcome to the Sole Circle

A place to connect with your soles and your soul to welcome health, harmony, balance and flow

ENROLLMENT AVAILABLE BY SPECIAL REQUEST 

Hello Curious One,

When coronavirus turned the world turned upside down this year, a seed was planted within me. My knowledge of Chinese Reflexology and the mind body connection helps people heal, strengthen their bodies. 

I want to help restore balance and harmony, and the best way for me to do this is to teach.

Discover how to strengthen your body so that you feel empowered and in command of your health and vitality.

In previous years, I taught Sole Fundamentals, a six-week introductory course on Chinese Reflexology, each spring.

This year, I knew I needed to do something different…

I wondered, “How can I help more people get the benefits of reflexology to strengthen your body’s defenses, release the negative effects of stress, and boost your energy levels?

I also wanted learning to be flexible and feel spacious for students during these times of uncertainty. I wanted to be able to better support students—and I also wanted to create a space that encourages self-care.

One thing that stuck in my mind was something I noticed about students who take my online programs: they’re thoughtful, caring people who are passionate about helping others. They’re so giving that sometimes they forget to make time for self-care, play and fun. That’s why I also wanted to weave self-nurturing and creativity into the Sole Circle experience.

It’s amazing how the Universe delivers inspiration when you ask for it…

I’m excited to announce the creation of the Sole Circle, a place to connect with your soles and your soul to supercharge your health, and welcome more harmony, balance and flow into your life.

The seed was planted and now it’s sprouting! Yay!

I look forward to connecting with you in the Sole Circle!

Lots of Love and Light,
Holly, Founder of ChineseFootReflexology.com

What is the Sole Circle?

The Sole Circle is an online membership site to learn Chinese Reflexology to strengthen your body, and improve your health and vitality. It’s a place to recharge, focus on self-care, and connect with like-minded souls. The Sole Circle helps you:

  • Learn Chinese Reflexology at your own pace knowing there’s ongoing support to get your questions answered, help with locating points on your feet, accountability and encouragement
  • Listen to the messages from your feet for better health,  greater resilience and balance, and improved vitality
  • Connect with the wisdom of your SOUL to heal the body, mind, heart and spirit—and transform your life
  • Create time to nurture yourself and reconnect with your playful and creative spirit

When you join the Sole Circle, you’ll be able to view the content in a private website. You’ll also get the Zoom access details for the live Q&A webinars and online meetings.

Here's What You'll Get

1) A Monthly Course for Health and Vitality

The first fourth months will consist of an all-new Sole Fundamentals program.

Sole Fundamentals is my six-week program covering the best reflexology points to optimize your health, well-being, and longevity. I cover the most powerful points in this program because everyone can benefit from massaging the most fundamental points for health and vitality.

This year, I’m including Sole Fundamentals—a $695 program—as part of the Sole Circle. I’ve redesigned the program to be delivered over four month so that you have more flexibility, spaciousness and support as you learn. This year’s program includes a special focus on respiratory health, because it’s needed in the world right now.

Click here to see what’s covered in Sole Fundamentals,

After the first four months, there will be a monthly course delving deeper into different topics, and you’ll help decide what they are. Some courses will be pre-recorded, while others will be taught live (with recordings available afterwards).

There will also be special guest teachers who are really good at what they do. While they aren’t household names, they’re the hidden gems that offer incredible wisdom and healing knowledge. Some of the instructors I have in mind teach qi gong, Shaolin martial arts, Chinese tea ceremonies, energy healing, sound healing, flower wisdom, and more.

Each quarter, one of the monthly courses will be a fun and creative “Me-Time” live workshop to get your qi and creativity flowing. Because many of my students are so passionate about helping others, they often don’t make enough time for themselves, or to play and have fun. That’s why I’m including self-nurturing and creativity as part of the monthly courses.

Each monthly course will be approximately 1 to 2 hours in length. Where possible, courses will be organized into shorter lessons so that you don’t have to watch the whole course in one sitting (unless you’d like to). You’ll have to option to watch a short lesson whenever it’s convenient for you.

Depending on the topic, courses will be either pre-recorded video lessons or live workshops through Zoom meeting or Zoom webinar. Recordings of the live workshops will be available to view in the Sole Circle.

2) Monthly Q&A Tea Time

With all the Zoom webinars going on lately, I’ve decided that Question & Answer webinars should feel fun and relaxing. Get your questions answered while we enjoy a cup of tea together or your beverage of choice.

If you can’t join live, you’ll be able to submit your questions in advance. Q&A Tea Time will be recorded so you can watch the recording at your convenience.

Because I have students from all over the world and many people have different work schedules, I will be changing the Q&A day and time each quarter so that more students have the opportunity to join live. The schedule will be posted at least 60-days in advance.

The 90-minute Q&A Tea Time will happen once a month.  Q&A Tea Time will be online via Zoom. Recordings of Q&A Tea Time will be available in the Sole Circle.

3) Point Practice with Holly

This monthly online meetup includes a reflexology “point lab” to help you find points on your feet if you’re not sure about the exact location. I can point out (bad pun intended) where the point is on your foot with the magic of online annotation :).

In my years of teaching, I find that 10% of students locate their points with 100% accuracy, 10% are way off, and the other 80% are somewhere in between. That’s why I’m including the Point Lab as part of the monthly Point Practice, to help students more accurately locate their reflexology points.

We’ll also use this time to connect with each other, practice gratitude, and practice our points so that you build up your “practice muscle”. That way, if life throws you a curveball, practicing regularly will be second nature and you’ll know there’s a monthly get-together to look forward to for helping you keep up with your reflexology practice.

Please note that only the point lab will be recorded so that students more feel free to share and interact during the practice time. Because people have varying schedules and live in different time zones, the day and time for Point Practice will change each quarter so that more students have the opportunity to join live. The schedule will be posted at least 60-days in advance.

45-minute Point Practice meets once a month.  Only the Point Lab (help with locating points on feet) portion will be recorded and available in the Sole Circle.

4) Bite-Sized Reminder Videos

Bite-sized reminder videos will help you easily integrate concepts you learn into your life. Each video will include a self-reflection question for improving your health and vitality with incremental simple steps. 

Videos will be approximately 2 to 8 minutes in length. There will be one video per month at the start of the Sole Circle. After the initial first four months, the plan is to create 2 to 4 new videos per month. Videos will be viewable in the Sole Circle.

5) Monthly Dragon Spirit Meditation

Many students tell me about the transformational healing they experience from the Dragon Spirit meditations in my programs. I’ll often hear, “It was like you were speaking directly to me!”

Dragon Spirit is your connection to the Universe. It’s the voice within that craves adventure and excitement. It also knows the most expansive answers to your deepest questions. Think of it as your intuition or higher guidance.

When I connect to my Dragon Spirit, I receive and share guidance to help you quiet the mind so that you can hear the wisdom of your soul. Students have experienced physical, emotional and spiritual healing by tuning into their own connection with the Universe.

As a member of the Sole Circle, you’ll help decide the expansive topics we explore in the Dragon Spirit meditations.

One audio meditation will be released each month. Since I’m tuning into the Universe and it’s a very organic process, the length of the meditations will vary. You’ll be able to download the meditations as MP3 files, one of the most popular file formats for digital recordings.

6) Accountability Sole Groups

For students who’d like to meet other like-minded souls and get into the habit of practicing regularly, I’m going to be organizing students into small practice groups based on your time zone and interests.

My intention is for you to connect with your “sole group” to make new friends while practicing together via Zoom or whichever online platform your group chooses.

I’m also thinking of creating special international groups for students to have the opportunity to meet others around the world. But we’ll start with  the similar geographical groups first and then we’ll see what unfolds.

How often you meet will depend on your Sole Group, but I recommend meeting once per week. Groups will be provided guidance on how to meet online via Zoom. 

7) Best Savings for Founding Members

As a founding member, you’ll get the best rate possible for the Sole Circle. You’ll also be grandfathered in at this rate for as long as you remain a Sole Circle member.

Over time, your membership will become more and more valuable as new courses, events, and ways to participate are added to the membership site.

My vision and intention is to grow and expand the Sole Circle:
 
  • I’d love to create rejuvenating retreats where we can meet in person.
  • I’d love for there to be more opportunities to learn and connect.
  • I want to create ways to connect people to work on passion projects to transform the world.
This all takes time, but I’d love for you to join me on this incredible journey. As Lao Tzu, the famous Chinese philosopher said, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
 

What Students Say About Their Experiences:

It’s been excellent. You do an amazing job of synthesizing wisdom from the East and West and making it accessible and useful.

~ Julie

Thanks for your patience with students like me and try to teach us the wisdom to liberate ourselves. Especially your dragon spirit classes lifted me up a lot in recent times.

I have become more vocal and be more calm and collective with my spirit.

~ Kavitha

During these times I have been doing Reflexology everyday. I’m grateful to have learned Reflexology from you! I have a little more confidence being safe and well!

~ Bruce, message received Spring 2020

Your organization and clear, concise lessons have just been fantastic. I love your humor and it makes learning more fun!!!

Honestly, this has been a healthy winter for me and I know it is because of the Reflexology and bi-weekly routines you have taught us.

The Dragon Spirit Space part of this course is such a bonus and I have received some great insights during this time. One insight was about a challenging relationship with a family member and how my body was speaking to me…things are so much improved since that meditation.

The time and care you put into the Q&A sessions is incredible. I have SO much gratitude for learning Chinese Reflexology and for having YOU as such a dedicated and Brilliant teacher !!! Thank you from deep within my Heart!

~ Mary Ann

I’ve been working with energy balancing traditions for several years now and love them all but I think the CFR you teach is the most powerful tool I’ve used, as well as the simplest!

Holly, you were born to do this! 

And I am so fortunate to have heard you last April, to have realized I needed to order your book right away even though I had no particular health issues, and then continued with Sole Fundamentals and Sole Mastery.  

Between the benefits of massaging my feet twice a week and the rich guidance from Dragon Spirit, my life (body, mind and spirit) is deep in transformation mode and it feels amazing.

~ Mel

You have been without a doubt, an awesome teacher in your field of expertise, and your presentation style, info, everything you do in this course has been so refreshing in the sense that all info given is clear, understandable, and doable, and lighthearted.

It is very clear that you care and love what you do, that you actually wish the best for all who participate and you make everyone feel visible, acknowledged, valuable, and capable in learning as well as your enlightening Dragon Spirit Meditations.

It is so very refreshing to find a teacher who is so genuine in her teaching and how you teach it, and just listening to you talk, and how you honestly carry yourself, you make us feel like ‘we matter’, and you clearly activate ‘inclusion’ to all.  You are a great example of an awesome teacher!

~ Jeanie

 

Thanks for a wonderful course. I have learnt heaps and can feel it all helping with my chronic health issues. Going into the specific points has really ramped things up – in a very good way. Big thank you!

~ Fiona

 

Doing the reflexology on myself is definitely improving my health! Lately I’ve noticed that my night vision has improved. Thank you for your honesty, integrity and last (but not least), your sense of humour 🙂

~ Carolyne

 

I actually listened to it a few times now, I find that your voice and energy helps me to slow down my typically super fast pace and just relax into trusting and knowing that all is well. 

~ Julia

 

I’m so happy I took the course with the covid 19 pandemic now going round. As being allergic to dust mite, having chronic respiratory issues, it is a great help to me.

I really believe it makes a difference and am thankful that I ‘ve been detoxing and strengthening for more than a year now ( first I used the gentle method in your other program), especially with the outbreak and stress now.

~ Elisabeth

I very much appreciate the way you have combined Dragon Spirit exercises with your course, as I truly believe that healing can’t occur without the involvement of body, mind, and spirit. 

What I’ve been learning about myself through the Dragon Spirit exercises has been as valuable to me as learning foot reflexology and your insights and remarks along the way have helped me immensely.

~ Sue

 

The biggest benefit that I got from Sole Fundamentals course is control over my health. I know that I can heal my body, I have the power to help my body to get rid of illness as well as to avoid getting sick. I can feel what my body is in need for and give it to it. I became more confident and positive about my health.

To treat an illness is sometimes easy, but to be certain about your future, to be confident that your body won’t let you down, to wake up every morning and explore life without cautiously checking up on a part of your body: “painful or not?”, to be active and fun, to enjoy your life – this is the real gift Sole Fundamentals course gave me.

~ E.M.

When I read your book I kind of haphazardly measured where I thought the kidney point was, but now I know that I was way off.

Taking this class and doing the checkpoint review I had to measure carefully and when I did that and started feeling around on my foot I could definitely tell when I found the kidney point. I’m not sure what I was massaging prior to this class – but it definitely wasn’t the kidney point.

There’s something to be said for a structured program, which as good as the book was with all the information in it – it wasn’t a structured program. I’m now realizing that I’ve always been very impatient with these types of things and need to learn how to follow something slowly and thoroughly rather than just rushing through parts of it.

I have to admit that I figured the book would be sufficient – less time and money than the course. But now that I’m taking the course I can definitely see the differences.

~ Claudette

The most obvious benefits of regularly doing Chinese reflexology on myself were more energy and fewer migraines.  Also my circulation improved (last winter no chilblains for the first time in many years, this year the chilblains are back); my hormones seemed more balanced (last winter no dark hair growth on my chin, this winter chin hair is back); my eyesight improved a little; my gums were in better shape etc.

~ Jane

Note from Holly: Jane shared with me the differences she experienced practicing reflexology (“last winter”) and what happened when she got very busy and stopped practicing (“this winter”). 

Her message is one of the inspirations for why I’m creating the Sole Circle— to help students continue their regular practice when life gets busy or throws them a curveball.

You do an excellent job with your class and present the material in a fun understanding way. It is well worth the money spent.

Your Dragon Spirit meditations are also wonderful. I’ve meditated for many years, but these are different in that it feels more like a conversation to get to a higher level of consciousness instead of a detailed process.

~ Robin

I’m feeling soooo much better than I did when I just got started with your courses!

~ Julia

I have some good news… 

in my last pelvic ultrasound from 2017 it showed I had another uterine polyp.  This was my 3rd polyp and as it was small I wanted to wait and see what it did before I had surgery to have it removed (the first two were removed in 2012 & 2014).  

I’m so glad I did because it has fully resolved on its own! Well I shouldn’t say on its own… thanks to you teaching me Chinese Reflexology & running that course you did for Women’s Health, I believe the reflexology was instrumental in that, plus the inner work I did to heal there too. So thank you – you are amazing! 

~ Melissa

 

This virus is so dangerous for the elderly and every time the media says that I agree and then think, Oh wait. That’s me!  Lol. So glad you have taught the tools for self care.

~ Melanie

 

By the way, I wanted to let you know that I was able to use what I’ve learned in your courses to prevent an impending UTI from becoming a full-blown infection!  The last time I tried to stop it with just concentrated cranberry juice and water didn’t do anything and I had to go to urgent care to get antibiotics after I started passing blood.  

This time I did the concentrated cranberry juice, water, AND reflexology, too. I didn’t read your UTI web article before I did this because I wanted to see if I could figure it out myself and was glad to see I did!  Your article is so interesting and I understand it better now than I would’ve before if I hadn’t taken your course with your explanations regarding the TCM perspective.  Thanks so much for teaching this course and for the knowledge that you share on your website.  I so appreciate it.

I’ve had UTIs in the past before as well, though not often. Usually, I don’t let it get to the point of passing blood, but I really wanted to see if the 100% cranberry juice and lots of water thing would work. With this COVID-19 pandemic, I really didn’t want to go see a doctor or a healthcare setting or take antibiotics and kill all my good bacteria as well as the bad ones if I can avoid it.  To see it really working (since I had a comparison) for such a painful and potentially serious health issue makes me so glad that I found your reflexology courses and took them when I did 

~ Janet

 

I am very happy to say that reflexology with your guidance has made a significant difference in the health of my family members and close friends. The success has given me the confidence to take it outside of my immediate circle.

~ Meena

Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely! Students from all over the world have successfully learned Chinese Reflexology through my  online courses. They love the format and delivery because online learning gives you a front row seat to see the techniques up close.

I remember feeling embarrassed in live workshops about asking an instructor to repeat a technique multiple times. With online learning, you can pause and replay lessons as much as you’d like.

More importantly, students successfully apply what they learn to improve their health and that of their loved ones, too.

Complete beginners are welcome!

I simplify abstract Chinese Medicine concepts so that they’re easy to understand, and I teach step-by-step so no prior experience is necessary.

Students who take my online programs come from a variety of backgrounds, including people new to energy healing and professional practitioners with years of experience. Courses are designed to be informative and accessible regardless of where you’re starting from.

When I told a friend about my plans for the Sole Circle, she asked, “Why is it so cheap? It seems like there’s not a match between what a person pays and what they get because they get so much.”

I told my friend that the reason why I’m making the price so affordable is because I want to make  Chinese Reflexology accessible for as many people as possible because I know it makes a difference in people’s lives.

I also know that people are facing financial uncertainty, and fear and stress about their health and that of their loved ones. I also know there are people who want to learn, but they live in countries where the currency exchange rate adds significantly to the cost.

Given the pandemic going on this year, I wanted to do something to help restore balance and harmony by empowering people to heal themselves.

I can offer such a low rate for the Sole Circle membership because I examined every step in every one of my processes for creating and teaching online courses and supporting students.

I used to work in high tech designing systems and processes so I have the ability to identify where I can increase efficiency and leverage my time while maintaining high standards.

The level of support that will be provided in the Sole Circle and the quality of the content is equivalent to what other online teachers charge thousands of dollars for in a year.

I’ve always made the conscious decision to make my offerings affordable. I can do this because of my years working in high tech where I learned how to leverage my time and also leverage technology.

By offering such a low price for the Sole Circle, I hope to introduce more people to Chinese Reflexology and its amazing healing powers.

I am optimistic that everything will balance out in terms of the lost income that results from not charging the full price of $695 for the Sole Fundamentals program this year.

I’m taking a leap of faith here, but I trust in the Universe and know that when you put good energy out into the world, it comes back to you.

Many people ask me which Chinese Reflexology points to massage for a specific health condition. As you learn more about Chinese Medicine and Chinese Reflexology in the Sole Circle, you will understand why the Eastern approach is so different from the Western one.

Western medicine primarily takes a one-size-fits-all approach to eliminate the symptoms of a disease.

In Chinese Medicine, there’s a saying, “One disease, many treatments. One treatment, many diseases.” What this means is that a Western diagnosis could be due to a number of different imbalances in the body’s organs and energy meridians. Therefore, it is necessary to heal the underlying imbalances that are unique to the individual.

Chinese Reflexology helps to balance and strengthen weaknesses and disharmonies in the body that are at the root of why a person experiences physical symptoms in their body. As the energy meridians come back into balance, this supports the body’s natural healing process.

And this brings us to the second half of the Chinese saying, “One treatment, many diseases.” Chinese Reflexology works to strengthen and balance the energy disharmonies that affect the body’s organs and meridians. Many diseases have their roots in imbalances in the same organs and meridians. However, these imbalances express themselves differently in different people.

Practicing a core reflexology routine with  customization based on a person’s energy imbalances can support the body in healing.

Because specific health conditions also encompass a person’s body constitution, general health, age and emotional elements, it’s impossible for me to guarantee that a condition will shift with regular reflexology practice.

However, I am very confident in saying that energy blocks and imbalances will improve. It is my observation that healing at the energy level always helps the body heal at the physical level.

I like to think of reflexology like eating nutritious food, getting enough exercise and sleeping well. It’s a key contributor to self-healing.

This is a simple question with a complicated answer. I’d first recommend that you read the answer to the question above on, “Will Chinese Reflexology help me with a specific health issue?” This answer explains the unique Eastern approach to healing and why it’s impossible and not even advisable, to make generalizations and give a one-size-fits-all approach.

Two people with the same disease can be practicing the same reflexology points, yet experience different rates of improvement. It depends on a number of different factors that include age, how long the condition has been present, one’s general body constitution, health of one’s parents during conception and while in utero, emotional roots of the imbalance, how regularly they practice, the accuracy of their point location, which reflexology points they are massaging (best to massage the ones that address their body’s needs), lifestyle factors and the nature of the disease.

Yup, it’s that complicated because Chinese Medicine looks at the individual as a whole. How fast change happens depends on the person and what’s going on in their body.

Most people notice qi improvements in 3 to 4 weeks (You learn how to measure this in Sole Fundamentals). When things start shifting at the energy level, it usually takes 2 to 3 months before people see things shifting at the physical level. These may be small changes or big changes depending on the factors mentioned above that influence the rate of improvement.

For my personal journey (really sick in my early 30s due to severe stress from working in high tech for several years), it took two months to see a stabilization of my health (no longer wondering what weird ailment would strike). At the time, I was getting twice a week reflexology sessions that included all of the 50+ Traditional Chinese Reflexology points, practiced with a reflexology stick. 

After I learned how to practice on myself, it took about 1.5 years to fully restore my health. I was practicing all 50+ points with a reflexology stick. This is taught in my six-month in depth Sole Mastery program. I recommend this program for people with chronic health conditions because there are often complex imbalances from a Chinese Medicine and mind body perspective. 

However, you don’t need to learn all of the points or use a reflexology stick (not advisable without instruction) to experience benefits from massaging your reflexology points regularly, especially the ones covered in the Sole Fundamentals program. These points are the foundational points for health and vitality, and they will be taught as part of the Sole Circle.  

Yes! You’re not locked in for any set period or commitment. Should you choose, you can cancel your membership online at any time.

If you’re a monthly member, your membership will be valid until the end of the period that you’ve paid for.

If you’re an annual member, you’ll receive a refund for the remaining full months, less the used months prorated at the monthly membership rate and applicable processing fees.

Running my business with integrity is very important to me. I don’t operate like those magazine or newspaper subscriptions where it seems like you can’t ever cancel. That’s simply bad karma, and I prefer to send positive energy into the world.

The membership is very similar to a Netflix subscription. You’ll be able to access all of the content and join the live support sessions for as long as you are a member of the Sole Circle.

If you choose to cancel your membership, you will no longer be able to access the content.

If you’re wondering why this is different from a magazine subscription, it’s because people mainly pay for the cost of printing and distribution for a magazine subscription, whereas the cost of creating the content is paid for by advertising.

I don’t feel it is appropriate for advertising pay for the content in the Sole Circle.

Here’s what is downloadable:

  • Supporting PDF documents
  • Dragon Spirit audio meditations

Here’s what is not downloadable:

  • Video lessons and recordings of live events such as Q&A Tea Time or Point Practice

Here’s why video lessons and recordings are not downloadable:

The content you’ll get in the Sole Circle is advanced content that I can’t share in open platforms because people need the full context of my teachings and my support in order to practice safely.

While 99.9% of members are honest and will not post the materials online, I have had people copy my content, take it out of context and put their own branding on it. They do not provide any support because they’re using the content to generate website traffic and ad revenue.

I have implemented a “no download” policy for lower-priced offerings because I know myself.

If someone got my materials for free somewhere and experienced challenges because they didn’t have the proper context and support, I know I would still try to help them because I have a very giving nature.

As a result, the “no download” policy is in place to prevent me from overextending myself. I appreciate your understanding for why this policy is in place.

Busyness is why I created the Sole Circle. You can watch the content when it’s convenient for you, knowing that there is ongoing monthly support.

After an enrollment period closes, you will be able to join the Sole Circle when the next enrollment period opens. Since this is a new endeavor, I can’t definitively say when enrollment will open again as it depends on the evolution of the Sole Circle. It could be a few months or it could be a year.

I am able to offer Sole Circle membership for such an affordable price because I examined every step in every one of my processes for creating and teaching online courses and supporting students.

I used to work in high tech designing systems and processes so I have the ability to identify where I can increase efficiency and leverage my time while maintaining high standards.

One of the best ways for me to do this is to do similar tasks in batches so that I’m not continually switching gears. That’s why enrollment will only be open during set periods.

 

I love that you’re interested in learning how to use a reflexology stick. It’s one of the most powerful ways to stimulate the reflexology points on your feet.

Unfortunately, I haven’t figured out a way to teach the reflexology stick as part of the Sole Circle. I teach how to use a stick in my six-month in depth Sole Mastery program which happens in the fall.

A reflexology stick provides such strong stimulation that students need the one on one support that I can only provide to a smaller group in Sole Mastery.

I usually recommend that students take Sole Fundamentals first before learning how to practice with a reflexology stick. It helps create the foundation for getting the most benefit from the reflexology stick while also minimizing the potential for negative side effects.

Students who complete Sole Fundamentals first get the most benefit from the Sole Mastery program because they’re ready to take things to the next level.

While I can’t teach the stick in the Sole Circle, members will have the opportunity to enroll in Sole Mastery at a significant members-only savings rate.

Depending on the topic, the monthly course may be a pre-recorded or it could be a live online webinar/workshop. Live online webinars/workshops will be recorded so that you can watch them at your convenience.

The live Q&A Tea Time will also be recorded.

For Point Practice, the Point Lab portion will be recorded, but the “practice together time” will not be recorded so that students feel more free to participate and share.

Each monthly course will be between 1 to 2 hours in length. You can watch the lessons whenever it’s convenient for you. The beauty of the Sole Circle is that if you need extra time to complete a reflexology course, you can simply join an upcoming Q&A to get your questions answered.

Q&A Tea Time happens once a month and will be 90-minutes in length. Point Practice is a monthly 45-minute live session.

Throughout your membership in the Sole Circle, you choose when and how often you’d like to participate.

I do recommend that students massage their feet twice a week. Once you’re familiar with the points, it should take about 20 minutes for a session. The great thing with Chinese Reflexology is that you can do it while lying in bed, watching TV, or even during a Zoom meeting for work!


Yes! I’ve had students take my online programs from all across North America, Europe, South America, Africa, Asia and Australia/New Zealand. The only continent where I haven’t had a student enroll is Antarctica!

I appreciate that certain time zones are almost completely opposite of Pacific Time (San Francisco), so I plan to change days and times quarterly (schedule published 60 days in advance) so that people in different time zones have the opportunity to join live for the monthly Q&A Tea Time and monthly Point Practice.

Live courses and Q&A Tea Times will be recorded so that you don’t need to join live. There will also be the option to submit your questions in advance.

Students will be organized into Accountability Sole Groups based on their interests and time zone. The actual online meetup times will be determined by the group. If you need to join a group in a different time zone because there aren’t enough students in your time zone, I’ll do my best to place you in a group where you’ll be able to meet regularly.

I’m also thinking of creating special international Sole Groups for students to have the opportunity to meet others around the world.

At this time, CEUs are not available. I was looking into offering NCBTMB CEUs for Sole Fundamentals before  coronavirus. However, the shutdowns have made that not possible for this year. My intention is to offer NCBTMB CEUs in the future.

Since each organization and certification board has its own requirements and fees, I am not looking into getting certified to offer CEUs through other organizations. However, I am open to looking into other organizations if there is sufficient interest from students.

Yes, that’s a lot of “soles”. There isn’t a sole sole. Oops, just made another bad pun.

In a nutshell:

  • Sole Circle is the upcoming reflexology membership site and includes what’s described at the top of this page
  • Sole Fundamentals is the introductory six-week program that covers about 20 essential reflexology points to build a strong foundation for health and vitality. For 2020, this program will not be taught as a six-week program. Instead it will be included as part of the Sole Circle, and delivered over the first four months. You can read more about Sole Fundamentals here. This year’s Sole Fundamentals program will include a special focus on respiratory health. 2021 plans for Sole Fundamentals are to be determined.
  • Sole Guidance is my book that covers the basics of practicing Chinese Reflexology. It was originally based on the first Sole Fundamentals program. Since then, the Fundamentals program has grown and includes more content and experiential learning than the book.
  • Sole Mastery is the six-month in depth program that covers the remaining 60% of Traditional Chinese Reflexology points not covered in the book or in the Sole Fundamentals program. This program also is where students learn how to practice with a reflexology stick. Sole Mastery teaches the  It’s next level learning that requires much more personal support from me so that students can practice safely with a reflexology stick.

In summary, a simple way to understand these different offerings is to think of an iceberg:

At the tip of the iceberg are free articles on my website. Next are the free courses I offer such as the mini course when people join my mailing list or my annual give-back-to-readers course.

The next level is my book, Sole Guidance. It’s the DIY version of Chinese Reflexology. I wrote the book as a gift to the world for people who were unable to take my online programs. Some reflexology is better than no reflexology.

For students who want to learn more and are committed to improving their health and vitality, Sole Fundamentals is the next level of learning. While much of the content is covered in the book, it’s a completely different experience to learn in my structured programs.

Sole Circle encompasses Sole Fundamentals AND also brings in elements of the mind body connection, customization of one’s routine as the body and qi changes over time, and the enhanced accountability from the Sole Mastery program.

There is a level of accountability and commitment not present from reading a book. It’s like learning karate by reading a book vs. having the instructor there to support you.

Sole Fundamentals is one of the best ways to build a great foundation for getting the most out of Sole Mastery, my in depth program where you learn the complete system of Traditional Chinese Reflexology.

Ideally, everyone would learn what’s covered in Sole Mastery as it’s the whole kit and kaboodle in terms of Chinese Reflexology.

However, I can only teach what the student is willing to learn.

Everything I share (from the free articles to the six-month Sole Mastery program) has value and helps you improve your health and vitality.

But if one chooses to see and experience more of the “iceberg,” more will be revealed to you as your understanding grows deeper and you tune in to the wisdom of your soul to be in command of your health and destiny.
