What is Metamorphosis?

Robert St. John's while working as a Reflexologist discovered that while working on the bony ridge of the feet, hands and head,  people would relate to their mother or father, he called this the mother-father principle. He found that as he worked on this area his client's behaviour changed, clients become more confident some changed careers and relationships changed. Sometimes the person did not even realise this was happening, but others saw the change in them as their transformation took place. and they became their true self. He then realised that at conception we inherit behaviour from our parents and ancestors. He was ahead of his time with his theory. Recent studies confirm that inherited behaviour governs how we approach situations in life.

All creatures have inherited traits. For example, how does a bird learn to build a nest? It inherits information from its ancestors through its mother at conception, and this is a good inherited trait as it is essential for survival.

Unwanted inherited traits can be feeling unwanted, lacking confidence, and having unwanted habits. Metamorphosis can help you overcome inherited patterns effortlessly.

Releasing those inherited memories allows you to free yourself from unwanted behaviour, mentally, emotionally and physically. As a result, you can achieve your true potential and become your best self.

This teaching course aims to enhance people's knowledge of Robert St. John's work Metamorphosis, which he originally referred to as "Prenatal Therapy", as his work was related to the gestation period, also known as trimesters. He renamed "Prenatal Therapy" Metamorphosis when he became aware his work was not a therapy as it was self-healing. The practitioner is merely a catalyst. RSJ Metamorphoses practitioners work with a light touch on the reflex points of the feet, hands, head and spine, allowing a person to become their healer.

You do not require any previous qualifications to become an RSJ Metamorphosis practitioner enhancing the lives of friends and family and future clients. Robert St. John's teaching also gives an insight into behaviour patterns, you will learn how different people react in situations and why.

During gestation, a baby knows what is happening outside the womb. Therefore, the baby will pick up the mother's feelings and other outside influences. Robert St. John taught that inherited traits are with us from conception. We do not inherit them during the time in the womb. However, if a person's inherited trait is to feel unwanted if they feel unwanted during the pregnancy, this will reinforce the inherited patterns; they will carry unwanted feelings into life and may lack self-worth.

If a person inherits a nervous disposition, if they are subject to an environment that is not peaceful during the time in the womb, they will feel nervous; this will enhance the trait they bring into life.

Who can benefit from Metamorphosis?

People from all walks of life can benefit from Metamorphosis. You can give yourself sessions of Metamorphosis, help family and friends or become an RSJ Metamorphosis practitioner.

Hypnobirthing practitioners and Midwives find giving future mums sessions of Metamorphosis during pregnancy to be very beneficial as they clear the expectant mother's blockages.

Reflexologists also use it to enhance their work.

Do you work with people who need support? Metamorphosis can benefit children and adults with physical, mental or behavioural challenges.

Why did Robert St. John call his work Metamorphosis? 

St. John saw his client's transformation when he worked on the reflexes of the prenatal pattern. However, when you search metamorphosis you see images of species and seeds morphing into other shapes which St. John claimed misinterpreted his meaning of Metamorphosis. When a species for example the caterpillar morphs into a butterfly or a seed morphs into a plant they take their inherited memories and traits with them to pass on to the next generation. They do not turn into new beings nothing alters except their shape. St John’s meaning of Metamorphosis was that by clearing the past inherited memories and traits a person does not become a version of who they were, they become someone who has never existed before, allowing them to achieve their true potential.

No particular environment is needed to give Metamorphosis sessions. However, providing a calm and relaxing space with quiet music playing in the background will add to the relaxed atmosphere. Clients remain fully clothed except for removing their shoes. The client and the practitioner experience relaxation clients are so comfortable they may fall asleep.

Frequently asked questions;

Is Metamorphous safe?

Metamorphosis is safe for everyone, from newborns to the elderly. It is the person's innate intelligence that does the work this inner being is there to protect you it would not allow any harm to befall you.

Do I need to ground myself before or after a session?

Metamorphosis does not work on meridians, unwanted inherited memories are not energy blocks, and working on the reflexes of the prenatal pattern does not create a closed circuit. However, if you want to ground yourself with any method you use, it will not make any difference to the outcome of a session, it is the work on the reflexes of the prenatal pattern that brings about the change.

How many sessions does a person need?

Metamorphosis Practitioners cannot know how many sessions a client will need, as they are just catalysts and make no claims to cure or take any credit for the changes in a person. Some clients will have a session and then contact the practitioner when they feel ready to continue their journey towards transformation. Others will feel they need several sessions and book them all together.

How long does a session last?

An hour is usually long enough for an adult. Minors and young children do not need so long. 

How should I interact with a client?

The session is relaxing for both the practitioner and the client. Some clients and practitioners like to interact, and some prefer to remain detached while enjoying the experience. Many clients ask questions and interact with the practitioner. Interacting or remaining detached will not make any difference to the person's transformation.

Can I give myself Metamorphosis? 

You can work on yourself as often as you need to. Use your fingers to touch your reflex points the same as you would with another person. While touching your feet, hands and head during a session on yourself you are working on the reflexes of the Prenatal Pattern this does not create a closed circuit.
