Integrating Reflexology into Client & Patient Care – Mt. Kisco
March 13, 2017
Imagine being able to support the entire body in its return to balance by working solely with the feet or hands. Reflexology is a time-honored therapeutic technique which does just that. Specific areas of the feet and hands 'reflex' distant aspects of the body, sending a signal to return to equilibrium. Massage therapists, aestheticians and nurses: envision being able to quickly and effectively create relaxation for your clients and patients. Begin any treatment with reflexology and prime the entire body for whatever comes next whether that is a full body massage, a manicure, pedicure, or simply putting a client or patient at ease. Learn reflexology basics: history, benefits, cautions/contraindications, foot maps indicating reflex points, and the elements of a basic reflexology session. Then experience giving and receiving reflexology techniques that can be put into practice with clients and patients.
