About me and what I do:
My name is Daryl, I am Certified and Insured in Foot Reflexology and have also completed training in Herbology with hundreds of hours of self study and practice in Herbs, Supplements, Health, and Edible Plants. I was originally certified in the traditional Ingham form of Reflexology and later instructed by an expert Reflexologist who practiced locally. In the past 17 years I have been in development of my own form of Reflexology. With my specific form of Reflexology and problem solving skills my sessions prove themselves to be powerful, fast, specific, and the results speak for themselves.
As an Herbalist, I try to focus my energy upon educating people about locally available herbs. Occasionally I foray into exotics. My bent is towards Native American use of herbs for healing and food. The lost art of home healing with plants that our recent ancestors possessed is another field I am trying to keep alive. I enjoy teaching others about this very important yet largely forgotten area of knowledge. I am always trying to add to my wisdom of plants and healing so I can offer you the best information to help you heal yourself and pass that knowledge on to others. I try to incorporate many approaches to herbalism to get the best result. You won't find the run of the mill generic herbal information like you saw on a tv program or read in a book you bought from an infomercial, you will get personal advice based on my years of study and experience actually working with plants and supplements.
I have always offered various products in my office, but recently have decided to go full on natural health store offering everything from Herbal Capsules, Nutritional Supplements, Natural Soaps, Essential Oils, Salves, Honey, Collagen, Natural Snacks, Silver Hydrosol, and many other items.
There are a few things that you won't find here. I don't sell products that require me to sell a minimum amount per month or be a distributor. I have a NO MLM policy regardless of the brand. If I offer you something it will be because I think you need it.
I will not sign you up for X amount of sessions on your first visit. This is impossible to predict. I have a loose guide from experience and usually by the second visit I'll have a pretty good idea on how long it will take, but this is not set in stone. Some people and issues take longer to heal, some not so long.
As a Christian I run my business on the same principles I live by. Sometimes that means I won't offer things, especially when spiritually detrimental to a client. As such, you will find my office free from energy work, Reiki, yoga, hypnosis, and other popular New Age practices. I've done hundreds of hours of research into these subjects and how they square with the Bible and have a very deep understanding of them and their origins and workings. As such, I go to great lengths to distance myself and the science of reflexology from those practices.
I also am very skeptical of most electronic devices and will not use nor recommend any of them without concrete proof that they work (ex: foot detox baths). I have enough experience in mechanics and basic electronics (I am also a Licensed Ham Radio Operator) that I've found more often than not these machines are no more than snake oil. I'm always on the look out for my clients best interest, be that body, spirit, or financially.
I will assess you at each visit and decide if I feel you should continue or if I think you may find better help elsewhere. If you are someone I cannot help I'll try to point you in the direction of someone who can. On the same token I don't give up easily and will exhaust all methods to try and help you.
I'll give you my honest opinions if you ask for them. If you ask I will take the time to research your medications and any known possible interactions between them and any supplements you may take (although this is only a first line of defense and you should always consult your Doctor and Pharmacist before mixing anything while taking medication).
Slippery Elm Reflexology has been a quiet but strong local business for the past 17 years in Tioga County, PA. I have also served the Lancaster County, PA area for the past 7 years. My services have been used by many different business owners, healthcare professionals, and multiple nationally recognized recognized artists.
If you find relief or healing by my hand, please thank God for it. All healing ultimately comes from Him. I consider myself lucky to be a tool in His capable hand to help others.
