World Reflexology Week: September 23rd - 29th, 2012

Next week is World Reflexology Week. The International Council of Reflexologists started World Reflexology Week in 1999 in an attempt to raise awareness and promote reflexology around the world. As a result, this year a number of reflexologists are offering informative workshops about the benefits of reflexology as well as discounts so that more people can try this natural healing therapy.

Check with reflexologists in your area for more information about events near you.

National Initiative for the Care of the Elderly (NICE)

NICE provides many excellent resources for those caring for the elderly, including a number of tools that can be found on Kobo in eReader format:
