Shoulder reflex- Karl-Axel Lind System II

In the Karl-Axel Lind method system II, the whole body is found reflected in the lower leg and foot. The foot reflects the head and the rest of the body is found in lower leg.

The reflex is situated on the lateral aspect of the fibula at a level four fingerwidths above the medial malleolus. On the inside of the lower leg this level refers to the 7th cervical vertebra (C7)

Treating problems in the shoulder region is a challenge to any therapist.

Many forget the ventral side of the shoulder girdle. Sensory disturbances in the arms for example, are often due to tensions in the ventral shoulder area and the “three thoracic gates”. 
Knowing about these connections it is often simple to correct.

Shoulder problems tend to be complex in nature and because they often develop slowly, it is important to be able to identify the early signs and symptoms.

In this course we look at reflexological treatment of the most common shoulder problems

If you posses the skills to effectively treat shoulder problems – you will never run out of clients!

Treatment scheme

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.


You will learn to examine the shoulder 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.

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 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.
