Add a new skill to your practice and learn to look at your clients' feet in a completely different way. Visual reflexology is simple to understand and easily used by anyone with even a basic knowledge of reflexology.
This is not about 'feet reading' of the personality. It is based on reflexology as a holistic but physical therapy.
Covered in the workshop, visual skills for:
- Guiding questions to clients.
- Structuring treatments and aiding palpation.
- Assessing your work during and between treatments.
- Techniques based specifically on visual observations.
- Clients with communication difficulties.
- Understanding the nature of the reflexes.
- Seeing imbalances in the body through differences between the left and right feet.
- Photos for record keeping.
- Focus and concentration during treatments.
- The feet as a 3D microcosm of your client, not a 2D chart.
Part one (morning)
- Uses and applications of visual reflexology in your practice.
- Using slides of different feet to consider implications of colour, lines, skin texture, tension and torsion at joints and tendons, tissue health, swellings, markings, etc.
Part two (afternoon)
- Group work - study of each participant's feet in turn to see how much we can tell visually from their reflexes.
- Trying different reflexology techniques based specifically on visual analysis.
Reviews of previous workshops:
"I think we all learned a lot and it will be extremely useful when working with clients. In fact, I've already found it to be so when treating a couple of clients last week." - Mo Bowyer.
"I can thoroughly recommend this workshop. It really helps you to focus on gaining maximum information from the feet before even touching them. Angela is also an extremely good facilitator." - Jerry Snell, West London AoR Group Organiser.
"Just wanted to say that Angela's workshops are really worth putting in your diary. I went to one and can't believe how much I learnt!" - Claire Freedman.
