Subjects for the workshop:



  • Acute and chronic bronchitis, why is it chronic?
  • COPD, what is it really?
  • Asthma - can the breathing pattern be the cause?
  • Acute and chronic sinusitis, are fungi part of the picture?
  • Allergic rhinitis, understand the quick reactions of mucous membranes

Worldwide, over 1 billion people suffer from chronic respiratory problems (World Health Organization 2003), mainly non-communicative diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and allergic rhinitis (hay fever). 

A new understanding of these diseases is slowly emerging, where the focus is on inflammatory processes as the primary cause. To achieve sustainable improvements for these diseases, we must help the body toward a state with less inflammation, a more balanced immune system, better overall communication between the body's cells, more appropriate use of the diaphragm, optimal diet, low stress level, peace of mind, etc.

It is a complex area, but with many therapeutic approaches. With the reflexology techniques, we can optimize the immune system, dampen the stress response and improve breathing pattern. 

Philosophy on breathing
  • Breathing as a bridge between the conscious and the unconscious 
  • Spirit and breath 
  • Respiratory rhythms - chronobiology 
  • Expansion - contraction 
  • Connections to the heart 
Additional techniques for self-treatment
  • Buteyko method for training a new breathing pattern
  • Simple dietary guidelines for asthma and other respiratory problems 
  • Neuro-lymphatic reflex points after Chapman

A selection of Touchpoint techniques



  • Using dorsal and plantar aspects of the same reflexes 
  • Reflexes for respiratory muscles 
  • Reflexes for the diaphragm and its nerve supply 
  • Nerve reflex point for the phrenicus nerve, and the connection between the diaphragm and inner organs 
  • Reflex for the phrenic plexus - or is it the solar plexus? 
  • Reflexes for bronchi and their concentration of lymph nodes 
  • Treating the nose and sinuses in a new way 
  • Nerve reflex point for the facial nerve, innervation of the mucous membranes in the nose and sinuses
  • Nerve reflex point for the trigeminal ganglion, a good point with painful sinuses

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