On Wednesday 14th of October a woman named Aideen Hayes came over to our school to do reflexology with us. We all had to bring in a pillow and a blanket. First of all Aideen showed us a slideshow about what reflexology is all about. We learned so much about how our body can be affected by stress and day to day pressures! we learned about our aura and mental health. We learned about the trigger points in our bodies and how reflexology can help us relax and heal.
The atmosphere in the room was very relaxed as there were candles lit around the room and the temperature was warm. Our teacher Ms. Duggan got her feet massaged first, she was put into a special chair with a blanket over her. She was very lucky as she looked so relaxed. After this, one of the students got a turn to get their feet massaged. Then we were brought down to the prayer room to do an hour of guided meditation. Everyone lay down on the white carpet with our pillows and blankets and just relaxed our minds. All in all, this was a very relaxing experience for us all.
