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.
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.
to offer a lasting reflexology treatment requires a sound knowledge
about the many factors involved .
will learn to examine the neck area and apply techniques from Classical
Reflexology, Nordic traditions, Nerve Reflexology, tests and exercises.
The course will be conducted with a mixture of lecturing, demonstrations and lots of practical hands-on work.
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.
