As a reflexologist of 16 years, a reflexology tutor of 12 years and Head of Training and Education for the Association of Reflexologists, I am delighted to offer several one day training courses in subjects I am both experienced and passionate about. These courses run in small groups in a warm and friendly environment in SE London to ensure optimum learning and individual support throughout the day.
All my courses will gain you CPD points:
This is a practical based day for those that have attended my Maternity Reflexology CPD day and would like to refresh the practical element of the reflexology.
The day will start with a brief re-cap of the main practical elements including endocrine balance, lymphatic drainage sequence, pelvic girdle pain sequence, preparation for labour sequence etc. There will also be some new techniques useful for ‘waking up’ the endocrine and reproductive system and a sequence for morning sickness.
In the afternoon there will be time for you to complete a full sequence ensuring you can incorporate the practical techniques into your normal reflexology treatment. Including plenty of time for any questions.
Reflexology during the conception and maternity journey aims to optimise the health and wellbeing of the woman and reflexologists should also be there to offer support and advice. These courses have been designed to give you the skills required to gain confidence in treating both conception and maternity clients.
This course is for qualified Reflexologists or students who are competent with their Reflexology sequence.
If you want to be able to offer your clients a new approach to reflexology that takes relaxation to another level - then consider this course! - the heat will do the work rather than your fingers and thumbs.
Hot stone reflexology is where hot stones are incorporated into a reflexology treatment; using large stones to warm and massage the legs and feet, and smaller stones to work reflex points and deeper reflex areas.
Supporting clients through stress, anxiety and depression
Whilst reflexology has been shown to reduce anxiety levels, this is an area where it is essential that people recognise that the way they are living their lives impacts on their wellbeing; making a few small changes can make a huge difference!
This one day course explores the different physiologies of stress, anxiety and depression and the impact these can have on people's lives. We then move on to introduce some current self help techniques such as Mindfulness, Positive Psychology, journalling etc. By the end of the day you will have several tools (as well as plenty of reflexology techniques!) that you can offer to your clients that can enable them to move towards improved wellbeing.
Have you ever wanted additional techniques for working reflexes? Then this could be the course for you!
Chinese Foot Massage is based on stimulation rather than relaxation and uses knuckles and sticks to work reflexes. If you would like to be able to work a little deeper or to just give your thumbs a rest then the Chinese Foot Massage CPD course can offer you this.
This course is a practical based day. After a brief introduction to some theory you will quickly move on to learn Chinese Foot Massage techniques including the use of a Foot Massage stick. The course takes you through each reflex on the foot and gives you options for working them in different ways. Even if you do not want to offer Chinese Foot Massage as a separate treatment you will use these techniques in probably every treatment you do after the course.
