ADVANCED FOOT REFLEXOLOGY
Gain further skill in pinpointing exact reflex locations and develop the sensitivity needed to take your sessions further with this 2-day course and practicum. Reinvigorate your practice and bring new techniques to your clients!
Craniosacral therapy focuses on the health of cranium and the spine, and the cerebral spinal fluid flowing between them. In this 2-day course, learn to apply elements of Upledger’s craniosacral ten-step protocol through the "little body in the feet". Powerful techniques make a big difference by encouraging spine alignment and proper flow of cerebral-spinal fluid.
Like all other reflexology maps, the entire body is represented on the scalp, and can be used to affect general health as well as to treat for certain conditions. You’ll come away from this compact 1-day course with a ‘mini routine’ to share with your clients.
Also known as ‘insect’ reflexology, each digit contains an entire reflex map for the body. After this 1-day course, you’ll have therapeutic access to 20 more reflex points for each organ!
ASIAN FOOT AND LEG REFLEXOLOGY
Asian reflexology is quick, dynamic, and movement-oriented, and an asset to fundamental reflexology skills. In this 1-day class, learn how to prepare your clients for a more in-depth pressure application, cultural differences in working the reflexes, and how to collaborate with your clients in this fast-paced application of active reflexology principles.
FOUNDATION MATERNITY REFLEXOLOGY
Reflexology during pregnancy provides gentle support. These techniques reduce edema, relieve pain, give support for overworked organs, increase hormone balance, and improve circulation—which simultaneously helps with oxygen and nutrition supply to the baby in utero. Less well known is the role of reflexology in helping couples to conceive, from pre-conception detoxification to balancing compatibility between the male and female reproductive systems.
Body reflexes are located directly over (or opposite) the corresponding organ, gland or part—and when massaged with reflexology techniques, affect those corresponding areas. All the reflexology principles apply, but the techniques vary from traditional reflexology techniques to those that resemble acupressure, applied over a larger surface area with broad pressure or kneading. Body reflexes can be accessed over clothing or on skin. We will be studying a body reflex map, with emphasis on improving bowel function, releasing the diaphragm, and quick body reflex ‘tricks’.
