Hi Christine I have given several talks and demonstrations on Reflexology over the years. I would tell the audience the history of Reflexology and how is was developed. To fill in time, I would give a brief demonstration on a volunteer. I would bring my large Reflexology poster so that the audience could see where the organs etc are placed on the feet. Perhaps you may have some testimonials so people can read how it has helped your clients. Hope thisis of help Angela

I used to get my students to do a 30 point plan for the talk i agree with angela but you can grab attention by going down a reflex zone and describing the areas which are in it and which may have problems ie neck shoulder knee gall bladder irritable bowel i usually use this to differentiate between our holistic approach and the allopathic approach which in the current system separates differnet parts of the body to differen t consultants - at least one person will have problems with all the areas you say ! if you practice ear reflexolgy you can use this to demonstrate how working the neck reflex improves neck movement dont forget to tell them a little of your background how you started in this field and take some cards any other help contact me on barb@b-l-t.co.uk
