The Baltimore School of Reflexology came about through the hard work and dedication of Chari Moye. Chari was certified to perform reflexology in 1971 and again 15 years later in 1986. Through more than a decade of research, she discovered monumental differences in the way reflexology was being taught. It soon became her goal to make an easy to learn and effective reflexology course. She took the most effective techniques from all of her educational experiences and combined them into one easy to learn method of reflexology. Chari wanted a program that included personal touches, like her students being able to share their personal experiences and testimonials. She also knew the importance of learning vital information about anatomy and physiology, ear reflex points and reflexology of the feet and hands. She wanted to create a place to learn reflexology and at the same time create a close knit community of reflexologist.
Chari began to hold small classes throughout Baltimore. Some even taking place in her home, where she would cook lunch for her excited, eager students. Many of her students would ask how they too could become a certified reflexologist. It became her goal to help as many as she could learn and benefit from this 5000 year old method of pain management, reflexology.
The Baltimore School of Reflexology was born
In October 2001, Chari officially registered the name Baltimore School of Reflexology with the state of Maryland. In 2003, the school was recognized by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB). She was given the ability to teach Continuing Education for NCBTMB classes. Chari felt that this endorsement made the school more "official". In the summer of 2004, Catherine Vestraci opened the first satellite class in Southern Maryland. Mayuri Sobti opened a second satellite in Washington DC in 2005. In March 2007 the Eastern Shore satellite class opened with Kasey Quillin teaching classes from their Coastal Wellness Center. Chari was excited to have had realized her dream of having reflexology schools throughout the state of Maryland. Unfortunately, Chari passed away in July 2008. The Baltimore Location would then be run by Annette Dill who had been teaching with Chari for more than 6 years.
In November 2009, The Baltimore School of Reflexology changed ownership. The thriving reflexology school is now being represented by a team of competent, caring teachers who have joined forces to continue the vision of the Baltimore School of Reflexology. They are determined to stay current with the latest developments in the field of reflexology, assisting in updating the curriculum, and dedicating their time and talents to the future of reflexologist's throughout Maryland and beyond.
