About course

This course is written and taught by Denise Hanlon.  Denise is one of OBUS Schools most experienced tutor and has been a practitioner for almost 20 years.
This one-day workshop is designed for qualified Reflexology practitioners. It will give you the tool, confidence and knowledge to work with babies and children.

Stimulation of reflex points has a significant effect on the nervous system, promoting relaxation and helping to restore its balance. This also has a calming influence on the internal organs and muscle functions which makes it a beautiful, easy and non- intrusive treatment to perform.

Students will learn how to tailor their normal reflexology routines into simpler forms to use with babies, toddlers and children for common conditions that affect them.

With the help of smaller model feet and specially drawn charts, this workshop will show reflexologists how to adapt their techniques.  The workshop will also cover appropriate treatment sessions for younger children.
