12/16/18- Tucson- Introduction to Foot Reflexology
Cortiva Institute - Continuing Education
Workshop Description: Foot Reflexology is based on ancient Asian and Indian holistic energy healing
modalities, developed into the modern zone & reflex system by around 1930. It is now
widely popular in Spas, Massage Studios and has even found its way into the malls.
This class is an introduction to understanding the basic anatomy of the Five-zone
System and the Reflex Points. A Reflex Point is a specific area or point on the foot that
corresponds to another specific part of the body.
DURING THE POWER POINT SECTION of this class, the students will learn how
energy channels in the body are mapped into Zone-Systems and Reflex- areas on the
feet, corresponding to organs, glands and Chakras, indeed to our entire body.
We will learn how to consult with the client, prepare a safe practice environment and
how to practice the basic foot relaxing & thumb walking techniques.
We will explore the importance of relaxation as an antidote to chronic stress, and we will
also learn about the benefits of essential oils and relaxing breathing techniques.
The students will have hand outs of protocols, active participation is encouraged.
DURING THE PRACTICE SECTION of this class the students will take turns practicing
on each other, to experience both giving and receiving a basic foot reflexology
treatment, practicing correct hand placement and reflexology techniques, incorporating
breathing and essential oils for added relaxation.
Wearing vinyl gloves while giving a treatment will be encouraged.
LEARNING OUTCOMES AND BENEFITS:
Understanding how foot reflexology works will empower the students to apply the basics
of energy healing and offer a relaxing treatment to family, friends and clients.
Feeling the results of a treatment that can relax the entire body, may inspire the
students to continue on a holistic path to wellness,
We will explore the addition of breath and Aromatherapy to add value to the treatment.
The skill of how to balance, relax and energize the entire body and its systems is a very
desirable addition to any other healing modality, or it can be experienced as a treatment
of its own.
Students will learn to design their own signature treatments incorporating the art and
science of reflexology.
Good health and homeostasis depend on the clear and vibrant energy flow in our
2 HRS, POWER POINT/ LECTURE on the History & Anatomy of the Reflexology
System, and how energy manifest in the body.
Basic techniques on set up, preparing the feet and relaxing the client are also covered.
Students are given hand outs to fill in.
