In India they say: "If your gut well, you will never get ill". New knowledge of the importance of the microbiome is growing rapidly. Being
able to successfully treat and counsel clients to improve digestion, is necessary to get rid of many ailments elsewhere in the
mucous membranes in the body can be regarded as one large ”mucous
membrane organ”. The digestion system has a much more
comprehensive nervous system than previously known.
Subjects for the workshop:
Are you best friends with your bacteria?
Our bacteria are involved in everything from how we digest to how we think and feel!
70-80% of our immune cells are in the intestines
An interesting reason to focus on the large intestine is, that a large part of our immune cells - up to 80% - are located there.
”The mucous membrane organ”
”The Stomach Brain”
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.

The process of digesting
A highly complicated but also fascinating interplay of processes take place when we digest our food. A wider knowledge about this helps understanding the many symptoms arising from the digestional system.
In this workshop we teach techniques from both classical and nerve reflexology.
Continuing Training credits are available.

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 are internationally respected leaders in reflexology; both as practitioners and teachers. I encourage reflexologists everywhere to expand their theoretical horizons and integrate the hands-on techniques from this workshop in their daily practice. You and your clients will be happy with the results!

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.
