|| Ask for the power...
We often wonder why, if we are all God's Creation
and God's Children, we can not be automatically connected with the
Power and receive assistance in all we do.
If the Devine Law with all the power and energy would be given
to us at all times, we would be in grand danger to misuse it. Therefore
we have to ask. That means that in the presence of danger you must
make first your attunement before you can receive assistance. But
attunement must be ready as an armor, as a sword of truth. When
you are in battle you can not run back and put on your armor and
your sword after the enemy has already launched their attack, you
must be ready.
But how, if we are told we can not be given constant assistance
and power? We must ask for it.
You stay in attunement and connect by making this request in the
morning before you begin your 24hr day;
"Beloved Heavenly Father, act on my behalf this day, fill my form,
release the light that is neccssary to go forth to do thy will and
see that at every hand the decisions I make are according to Thy
holy will. See to it that my energies are used to magnify the light
in everyone whom I meet. See to it that Thy holy wisdom released
to me is used constructively for the expansion of God's kingdom.
And above all beloved Heavenly Father I command my Spirit unto Thee
and ask that as Thy Flame is one with my Flame, the union of these
two flames shall pulsate to effect in my world the continuous alertnes
and attunement with my Holy Presence and the Holy Spirit."
It has become my second nature to make this request every morning,
sometimes even during the day and so I feel connected with the source.
Sometimes when I see something that makes me angry I am thankful
that I am not automatically given the power but must check my motives
and ask for it. Otherwise who knows what trouble I could get myself
Talking to a young person about this today made me realise that
this is something I might want to share in my notes from Oma's desk.

|| Where has all the Oma been ?
All over, she has been.
Now situations are stabilized again! So sorry that the homepage
was neglected for soo long. We are relocating to our new place in
Friday Harbor on the wonderful Islands of San Juan in Washington
Please watch for the new addition on our home page coming up soon.
We will give you information about our new location and the upcoming
seminars in the OMA Method we are offering in 1999.

||answering question about reflexology and cancer
I would like to make my point to this controversial question.
Thank you for asking Mr. Karl Stratman,
My answer will also touch on some other questions, i.e. pregnancy
and also any particular ailment.
We always keep in mind that we do not treat an illness.
Our aim is to remove blockages, establish equilibrium and promote
energy flow = circulation. A balanced and well circulated organism
will ensure a healthy immune system and facilitate prevention
A well educated reflexologist is aware of the nature of all body
functions and will intuitively tune in to any particular situation
We know that with a focused signal given to the brain by pressing
on a specific reflex zone or point, currents are released into
the connecting nerve -pathways,activating a particular organ,
energy field. and body system.
In the OMA METHOD we are guiding the flow of energy through each
system. This way the practitioner is in control of the therapeutic
effect. For example in case of a pregnant woman, we do not work
on the glandular system or on the reproductive system. We activate
the relating reflex points and guide the energy flow through the
respiratory, the urinary, the digestive system, the spinal reflexes
and the solar plexus. Then we give a relaxing compression foot
massage, sparingly applying pure essential oils to specific energy
fields ( body systems)
We are mindful not to use intense prolonged muscle strength with
our fingers by dipping deep into single points, but we work from
the center of our heart and hand systematically all reflex points
relating to each specific body system, also using visualisation.
The same is true for a cancer situation. The person might be
on chemo therapy or be otherwise heavily medicated ( meaning not
to activate the liver reflex) . Or the cancer has already metastasised
and invaded the lymphatic system. Every case is different.
Foot Reflexology induces deep relaxation (see Oma's Notes on
Solar Plexus and Endorphins). It is uplifting to the emotional
and mental attitude, invokes fearlessness and in fact can immensely
benefit a person diagnosed with cancer.. But I strongly do recommend
to work with the Physician of the person.
In the "Lehrstaette fuer Reflex Zonen Arbeit am Fuss" Hanne Marquard
in Germany, where I received part of my education, the client
is given a booklet for his/her physician to be introduced to reflexology
work. Sometimes the doctor agrees to a reflexology session for
himself to have a personal experience to evaluate the effect of
reflexology for further recommendation and co-operation.
Again I AM stressing the point that we are part of complementary
and preventative medicine. Not alternative medicine. We work with,
and we assist the medical profession. We are Not Doctors, we are
practising a very effective holistic (ancient) therapy. At all
times we take on the responsibility for continued education and

||Another confession by Oma
|As I was now in Canada for 10 weeks, away
from my Reflexology practice, one is, so to speak 'out of touch'.
I had again to experience on myself how effective and powerful a
good reflexology treatment can be. I suffered from severe sciatic,
groin - and lower back pain, restless nights again and again.
In the past I have given some instruction to my son Thomas. He
is not a professional reflexologist, but he has a heart overflowing
with love and the desire to help and heal,. His hands have a blessed
impact. So I turned to him for 'help'.
Using the chart, I explained to him exactly which points to work
on. I guided him through the energy fields on the feet for the
groin, hip and knee, lower back and sciatica. He also massaged
the legs with my Castor Oil Blend.
The pain is gone, I have once again peaceful, restful nights
and I only wish we had done this sooner.
I am leaving Canada in a few days and now. I will look up someone
back in California who is as good as Thomas.
I AM confessing this experience to encourage laymen and professionals
alike to explore, to study, to practice and to trust Reflexology
as a very powerful Instrument for Healing right there in your

||How to start a practice, how to create a clientele
|This question comes up frequently.
I AM right now here in Nova Scotia, Canada, and I AM truly amazed
how open minded many people are in this remote area. We are starting
a Health Practitioners Network.
Networking in my experience means that the practitioners know
each other in person, have experienced the services offered and
can therefore wholeheartedly recommend them to their clients.
There is a Healt Food Store in Sydney, N.S. named "Nana 's Healthfood
- for Goodness sake". The Lady who owns the place is also a Hannah
Kroeger practitioner and a gifted healer.
Both of her children work in the health field and her husband
works in a government position for Ecology Awareness. They serve
an army of health minded people. The Store is practically the
Center for many activities and has recently moved to a larger
We realize that as a newcomer to the health practitioners' community
one has to make as many contacts as possible.
- Go to meetings like Yoga, Meditation, meet health-minded
people at lectures given by other health practitioners, be out
there and make your presence known.
- Have a flyer promoting your service to hand out to individuals
and have it on different bulletin boards.
- Being awake and alert and observant , reach out! Do not
wait for them to come to you.
There are 3 kind of people,
- those who watch what happens,
- those who wonder what happened, and
- those who make things happen.
It is our choice.
Recently I saw a poster in the window of a gift shop here announcing
a meditation workshop. The topic: * Discovering Basic
Goodness.* "According to Shambhala tradition all human
a fundamental sanity and wakefulness as their birthright. This
basic goodness which we all have can be cultivated by the practice
Obviously in a setting like this one can meet people who are
open to take responsibilit for their own well being and that
is what Reflexology is all about.
There are many books to learn the fundamentals of Reflexology.
Once you have those, learn as much as possible about your modality
and give treatments to friends and family. This will give you
plenty of "hands on" practice and you will learn as you go. Join
a practicing professional reflexologist in your area with the
understanding and agreement that it is to be a temporary apprenticeship
position. Some jurisdictions require practical clinic experience
before you may practice reflexology professionally.
This is a good start.
The best kind of advertising is "Word of Mouth". Strive to be
very good until your good is better and your better is best and
let God do the rest. This works always. Also remember that knowledge
is best obtained through LEARNING and not by being taught.
Everyone has something special to give and when we share what
we have learned we are teaching, without being an officially established
As for schooling for certification, find the nearest Reflexology
Association and inquire about opportunities in your area.
Look for more information at these authoritative locations.
With this I have answered some questions that were asked by several
visitors to my Guestbook about "how to 'accumulate' a clientele"
and "how to learn".

|I hear again and again "I am trying to
find this and that.". O.K. Trying is not enough ! Put an 'umph'
behind your try and make it a triumph.
Everyone who has an e-mail address must have access to Yahoo
and other search engines.
There you can find practically everything you need. Good info
for Aroma therapy can be found under
leading you on to others.
Oma's homepage is meant to share experiences from clients and
practitioners about reflexology . It also has links to other related
My children have been encouraged, "what ever you need to know
ask mother first". But then they became a little lazy and asked
about every little thing. That's when I had to tell them, "ask
me only after you really made your very best effort to find out
So my children out there, that is what I have to say today.
|Sat, Feb 1 1997
||to answer some questions
|There is a very fine line Reflexologist
have to be aware of between health care provider and sick care.
We are health care providers. We do not diagnose illness, we do
not treat conditions which are characteristic for a 'sick' person;
we do not prescribe.
But we can share experiences.
More and more physicians include a health care provider in their
approach to help patients. Reflexology included.
Our aim is to make known what reflexology can do, so people can
ask for it and include it in their health care..So please understand
when I AM not answering precise questions about certain symptoms,
not only is reflexology going to the cause and that involves serious
study and knowledge and can not be answered out of hand, but.
I also could be accused of practicing medicine without a license.
However everyone has the right to educate themselves and there
is a great variety of material, reports, testimonies, lecture-
and research notes available for those who seriously want to help
themselves and others.
We have on our page book lists, Another one of them is to be
and also the link to the Reflexology Research People Kevin and
They provide research information about almost anything in the
field, from laws affecting reflexology, nursing research in other
countries, Reflexology for children, legal requirements to practice
reflexology in different States and Countries, and on and on.
A very worthwhile and comprehensive source of information.
Please look them up and apply yourself..
To include Reflexology in your Health Care Practice, or in your
private life, requires sincere study. It is as complex as our
human nature itself and equally as wonderful. The purpose of Oma's
page is to share experiences and point to resources, then one
can take it from there.
May the work of your heart, head and hands and every step of
your feet be blessed always

||Oma is back Happy New Year
|Hi, I am back and we can communicate again,
It was a good year, we had again the opportunity to gain much by
learning the lessons life has bestowed upon us and by passing a
few tests. Gaining more insight, being enlightened and growing to
trust in our Divine Destiny.. I find that many young clients are
in a depressed frame of mind... But we know that one key to happiness
There is no room for depression or fear when we count our blessings
one by one.
What a great year it was ! I feel an awakening all around us,
things change for the better altogether. I believe that with all
In today's society and hectic lifestyle it is of greatest importance
to help people into a state of deep relaxation. Endorphins are
activated and released during deep relaxation.
Endorphins are not only pain relieving but also mood altering
chemicals .. I dare to say that nothing relaxes a person more
than a compression massage to the feet where precise energy fields
connect to all bodily functions...
To work on the energy field connected with the Solar Plexus has
a deep relaxing effect.
The Solar Plexus also called HARA ( what you are) by the Japanese
and Chinese is considered the most important place of power in
the human body, affecting the balance of body and mind .. It is
also the seat of vital spiritual energy.
The Solar Plexus ( abdominal brain) is situated in the upper
part of the abdomen, behind the stomach in front of the great
artery and in front of the pillars of the diaphragm.. The Solar
Plexus is the great plexus, i.e. network of nerve fibers. of the
great sympathetic nervous system. It is composed of gray and white
nerve substance or brain matter, It receives and distributes nerve
impulses and currents. In other words it receives impulses and
gives currents to all the abdominal organs, supplying the main
organs of nutrition assimilation, elimination etc. with nervous
energy, In fact it is the great powerhouse of physical life energy,
bodily functions can not be performed without it.
If the Solar Plexus is injured the entire physical well being
is at once seriously affected. If it receives a severe shook,
death often ensues. Many disorders in the human body can be related
to a Solar Plexus that is out of balance. Emotions -energy in
motion- are registered by the Solar Plexus and are greatly affecting
its proper functioning.
The name 'Solar' was bestowed upon it by reason of its central
position. Its filaments extend in all directions like the rays
of the Sun. It is recognized as being the power station and life
force, just like the Sun is the great power station and reservoir
of material energy for our Solar System.
Foot Reflexology is a valuable method to effectively employ it's
finer forces and hidden energies. Foot Reflexology gives access
to this power station and regulator of life force.
The stimulating and harmonizing of this particular energy field
affords deep relaxation restoring vitality and health.
