    Beste Redaksie Ek wil graag my waardering en gelukwense op skrif sit vir die jongste Joernaal (no 77) wat ek pas deurgelees het. Ek voel regtig trots op die interessantheid en kwaliteit van die artikels. Dit het so ‘n egte refleksologie-inslag. Mens sal nie sommer in enige publikasie of selfs die internet, die besondere refleksologie toepassing van dìe spesifieke onderwerpe kan kry nie. Dit gee die Joernaal 'n volwaar- dige plek onder die leesstof waarvoor ons tyd afstaan. Ek besef die harde werk en moeite wat daar ingaan om elke uitgawe die lig te laat sien. Baie, baie dankie en hartlik geluk!

    Thanks to all of you who participated in projects during World Reflexology Week. It is good marketing for our profession in general and for you as therapists.

    This issue is packed with new and exciting material, namely articles from experts and practitioners with an astonishing variety of expertise. They are experts in their own right and and their articles need to be savoured and read slowly.

    Everyone should read the article “The Lymphatic System”. It is important for us to refresh and expand our knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology. To be up-to-date with this will give us more self confidence in our profession. Otherwise patients will notice our lack of knowledge. The drawing on page 9 gives us a bird’s eye view of the lymphatic system of the body.

    In the article “The Lymphatic system and your Immunity” by Jyoti Govind we find the discussion of steps that a person can take to prevent lymphatic congestion.

    I have learned quite a lot by reading the article “A closer look at the brain’s disposal system” by Liza Thomas.

    There is much to learn but remember to give yourself time to absorb it all, and also listen to your own song that wells up from within. It is better to learn with an open heart than a closed one.

    PROCEDURE CODES & MEDICAL SCHEMES

    Obtaining Procedure Codes is not just about patients being able to claim from medical schemes! It is also about medical schemes giving this therapy professional status.

    The focus of the Congress was on moving from promoting treatments to relax the body to treatments that would make a contribution towards a patient’s rehabilitation programme and to become part of a national health service, for example by working in a rehabilitation health care centre or a primary health clinic.

    REFLEXOLOGY INCORPORATED IN HEALTHCARE

    There are good reasons, i.e. not having procedure codes and legal restrictions, why therapeutic reflexologists were so focused to offer services from a private home or a hired venue. Here and there patients did request treatment while in a hospital.

    In a recent document that I had compiled for TSARS so as to motivate why the service of Therapeutic Reflexo
