The main subjects for the two-day workshop include:



  • Anatomy and physiology of the spine revisited
  • Common back problems and causes
  • Assessing motility of the spine
  • Nerve reflex points for all spinal nerves
  • Reflexes for the spine on the lower leg
  • Muscle reflexes
  • Stress management via the autonomic nervous system
  • Treatment of the sacro-iliac joint
  • Assessment and treatment of the Iliopsoas muscle
  • Stimulating the whole body via the spine
  • Analysis and correction of posture

The spine is the core of the body and treating the spine reflexes should also constitute the core of any reflexological treatment.

In this workshop nerve-reflexology will be one of the major techniques, because it is effective and fascinating to use with back problems. Using this method in the beginning of a treatment session often reduces pain and increases motility, thus enhancing the classical reflexology treatment which follows.


Treatment scheme


The treatment scheme 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 treatment scheme, which, built on our clinical experiences, is meant as an inspirational tool and a way to remember the new techniques.



In the workshop we use techniques from Classical reflexology, Nerve reflexology, The Swedish Karl-Aksel Lind method, Danish muscle reflexes, trigger points and more.

Continuing Training Credits are available.
