This Fall I am delighted to be asked to return to The Lauterstein-Conway School of Massage to offer a continuing education class for allied health practitioners as well as the lay public interested in exploring the art and science of Reflexology in a six-hour workshop. Registration is through the TLC School at the link below.

Reflexology is a gentle bodywork modality that encourages the body towards homeostasis in all physical and energetic systems. Primary benefits include deep relaxation, improved circulation, and an enhanced sense of well-being. This introductory workshop will provide a brief overview of reflexology’s history and theories, foot assessment, and techniques employed in this modality.

Stimulating the pressure points on the feet has been used to help alleviate pain and promote relaxation and healing since the time of the Egyptians. The many different pressure point systems include points on the feet, hands, and other areas of the body that have corresponding points in other areas.  For example, a point on the foot corresponds to a point in the spine.  When pressure is applied to these points, the related part of the body is affected, relaxing tension and helping the body seek its own balance and health.

Pressure point therapies can be used with any population, do not require a massage table, and can be applied and are effective in a short amount of time.  They can be used as a stand alone therapy with the client fully clothed, or incorporated into a massage.  In a massage setting, working on the pressure point first can relax the corresponding area, making massage techniques more effective.  In certain injuries or illnesses, pressure point therapies can address situations often difficult for massage, such as stimulating healing of wounds, fractures, burns, endocrine imbalances, and skin conditions.  Pressure point therapies also address emotional conditions related to chronic stress.
