Round about: The Neck
Neck problems present challenges for any therapist.
The neck has a much greater influence on our health and well being than most people are aware.
The cervical spine has an ability to remember every bump, twist, tension and misuse it has been subjected to during a lifetime. No wonder so many clients have neck problems or cervical headache.
Being able to offer a lasting reflexology treatment requires a sound knowledge about the many factors involved with problems like:
- acute neck pain
- recurring neck tensions
- whip-lash injury
We also investigate other subjects related to the cervical spine:
- facet joints and muscles
- nerve reflex points for the neck
- neck reflexes on the lower leg
- importance of the sternocleidomastoid muscle
- palpating joints and muscles
- assessment of mobility
- connections via the high cervical spine
- Soft manipulation techniques
You will learn to examine the neck area and apply techniques from Classical Reflexology, Nordic traditions, Nerve Reflexology, tests and exercises.
With the workshop comes an extensive fully illustrated manual covering both theory and practise.
The course will be conducted with a mixture of lecturing, demonstrations and lots of practical hands-on work.
Continuing training credits are available.
