Arm and hand problems are more and more common problems because of the intensive use of computers, tablets and smart phones. 

The arm and hand are the most versatile part of the movement system and can be used in a myriad of ways. Therefore, a large number of components are also included in a very limited area.

We look at the parts, how they work together, and how overloads occur and lead to pain conditions - and how they can be treated.

For reflexologists the arms and hands are of interest not only because so many people suffer from problems in arm, elbow, wrist and hands, but also because reflexology is a hands-on modality, where knowledge about this area and self protecting techniques are crucial for good results and a long therapeutic career!

Work sequence

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.
