Why take this course:

This two-day workshop will introduce therapists to TCM (traditional Chinese medicine theory) and the Five elements and help them to gain an understanding of how energy works in the body.

We will look at the beginnings of Reflexology and how they are rooted in ancient Chinese and Indian healing modalities, of Acupressure, Acupuncture, and Massage. These ancient skills are what inspired Dr William Fitzgerald, the American ear, nose, and throat specialist, when he studied in Asia and through this, he developed his very famous reflex zones therapy.

Students will learn about Ying and Yang and the channels that begin and end in the feet & hands. How by interacting with one channel or point we can affect the paired channel or distal points in other areas of the body.

Students will work on lower legs and feet, arms, and hands, using massage, reflex, and acupressure techniques. They will also be introduced to moxa therapy and the use of pre blended essential oils through aroma-rollerballs, to enable them to give their clients a beautifully relaxing yet stimulating treatment which works on the whole body to bring back harmony and balance. These techniques can be used as a stand-alone treatment or can be added in part to the therapist’s own treatment, to give a deeper connection between physical and emotional symptoms.
