Foot Reflexology is a practice that helps your body journey the path to a state of wellness and vibrant health. It is based on reflex points in the foot which mirror and connect all parts of the body, including organs, glands, circulatory and nervous systems. Reflexology has many benefits - it can help rid the body of toxins, reduce tension and stress, improve circulation, relieve pain, improve blood and oxygen flow and strengthen the immune system.
Shelby Schue, Reflexologist
Shelby grew up in New York, lived in many states and has traveled the world. She lived in Johnson, Vermont, a small college town during the late sixties where she raised her three wonderful children. In 1969, she established a health food store, one of the first of its kind. The concept of health food stores was quite new as a movement was growing to redefine food as natural. Customers sought out her whole grain flours, which she milled in the back of the store and made her own granola.
Around1970 Shelby enrolled at the International Institute of Reflexology and trained in the Ingham Method. Since then she began working with the local folks and promoted Reflexology on radio and television. In 1985, Shelby traveled to New Zealand and stayed at a health ranch in Queenstown. It was at this time she studied with a blind healer who shared her knowledge of Reflexology and Iridology, which fed Shelby’s existing love of Reflexology.
As a pioneer in Reflexology, she is pleased to see this valuable practice revered and growing in this country. People are realizing the benefits, not only for on-the-spot healing, but also as a preventative for many ailments. Shelby does not diagnose, but she can give people a good idea of where a challenge may lie.
In the mid eighties, Shelby learned the technique of Rebirthing or Conscious Breathing. She recognized that this is a powerful way to explore one’s own inner self. Since then, Shelby has performed rebirthing sessions on thousands of people. She has been rebirthed many times herself. In the 1980s she was rebirthed every other week for 2 ½ years.
In 1994, Shelby moved to Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, drawn to this area by the mild winters and people’s open hearts. These days Shelby can be found in her lovely restored historic adobe home just outside of downtown Truth or Consequences. Surrounded by lovely gardens, her oasis brings her joy, peace and tranquility. She is grateful in many ways to be here and sharing her love and healing abilities.
Shelby is happy to share the gift of Reflexology and Rebirthing with you!
With 44 years of experience, Shelby utilizes reflex points for whole-body balancing.
Shelby serves as a Board Member of the New Mexico Association of Reflexologists, Santa Fe, NM.

The earliest origins of the Tarot cards are somewhat ambiguous and remain shrouded in mystery. Some believe their use began in ancient Egypt, some with the ancient Celts. Others believe they came from China, India or Persia….Wherever the truth lies, what we do know is today’s deck dates back to the mid-fifteenth century when the aristocratic Italian Viscounti-Sforza family commissioned the painting of several Tarot decks.
The 78-card deck has been used in many different ways during its existence. There is evidence that it was originally employed as a card game called tarot in France and tarocchi in Italy. Many different decks exist today and the fascination with the Tarot continues.
Many people believe the Tarot to be “fortune-telling” cards. This is somewhat of a misnomer. The cards are not intended to predict a “fixed future.” Rather, they are a way to connect more powerfully with ourselves in the present by working with their symbolism. That’s where the “reader” comes into play. These are people who have studied the card’s symbolism over a period of years and can facilitate a connection or bridge if you will, to gain stronger access to your intuitive and spiritual life.
For those who are new to having a Tarot “reading”, it’s not unlike going to a career counselor. The cards are a tool that can help reveal patterns in relationships; our strengths, weaknesses, and access information to on-going questions about our purposes on Earth. A Tarot reading can have a cathartic effect creating a “A-ha” moment that can clear a path toward your greater aspirations. For others it can be an experience of emotional support during a time when they feel as if “the Path” is clouded from view. It can also be just plain fun!
Enjoy life, it’s precious, and if you would like to experience a Tarot reading, just make the appointment!

Reiki / SRT / SpR
Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) moves one toward balance of the whole being: spiritual, emotional, mental and physical.
This ancient form of balancing allows the body to self-heal and whole on all levels while providing a sense of nurture. It will be as if you have come home and turned on the light switch. With use, the light becomes brighter and brighter.
Follow the happenings of life; they will bring you to places and people who will promote inner growth. One may find that focal points and priorites of living are altered. More often you will find a quiet honesty about your actions and lifestyle. Be prepared for growth and change, accept and enjoy what happens.
