This workshop is part of the series: Round about...

Subjects for the workshop:

  • Stress signs and symptoms.
  • How does the body react to stress?
  • What happens in muscles, joints, nerves and to the immune and hormonal systems?
  • Psychological mechanisms in stress
  • Which imbalances are found in the stressed individual?
  • Stress as friend and enemy
  • How does the autonomic nervous system react? – and how can we influence it with reflexology?
  • Detailed reflexes for the diaphragm and it's nerve supply.
  • Relaxation techniques – mental, and with reflexology.
  • Balancing energy centres in the body via chakra reflexes on the feet
  • Stress reduction through an excercise for the heart
  • How do we inform clients about stress and its effect on their bodies?

One fifth of the western population has daily stress related symptoms and every day the media have new stories and facts about stress. But what is actually going on in the stressed body? – and how do we make sure stressed out clients get the most out of reflexology treatments?

The outcome of our treatments depends on the body’s ability to reflectorically react to reflexology’s impulses. Without functioning communication channels in the body, mechanical, neurological, hormonal and energetic, it is difficult to get through with even the best therapy. And these are the very systems affected when we are stressed.

Because of the stressing life situation many people experience today, maybe we have come to the point, where some may not get the most from “classical reflexology”. The intense and at times painful treatment may overload an already well loaded system?

The Overview of techniques  shows all the techniques we teach in the workshop.

In Touchpoint’s continuing education classes we primarily present techniques from classical and nerve reflexology, and a few selected body techniques.

Towards the end of the course, we discuss the overview of techniques, which, built on our clinical experiences, is meant as an inspirational tool and a way to remember the new techniques.

Overview of techniques

In the workshop we will work with techniques to “be invited inside” by the receiving body.
We apply methods from Danish reflexology, nerve reflexology, relaxation techniques on the feet, chakra reflexes, and more.

Peter and Dorthe presented the most organized and professional training class I have ever attended in my adult life. As a 46-year-old veteran I have been through many classes from military training, to underwater welding, to different types of healing modalities. I was very impressed with the work Peter and Dorthe are doing. Thank you for the wealth of information I will be putting to valuable use. Cheers.

Dorthe and Peter took a complicated subject like anatomy and made it very easy to understand as well as remember. They're phenonemal instructors that take necessary time with you as an individual to show you exactly where and how to work on your clients. This is easily one of the best reflexology classes I have taken.

Peter and Dorthe are internationally respected leaders in reflexology; both as practitioners and teachers. I encourage reflexologists everywhere to expand their theoretical horizons and integrate the hands-on techniques from this workshop in their daily practice. You and your clients will be happy with the results!
