I am always updating my knowledge of reflexology and other therapies. Therapists are always learning, and looking for new ways in which to apply our knowledge to benefit our clients.
Indeed it is a prerequisite in all professions to keep up to date with new procedures. It is also very rewarding to remind ourselves of traditional methods. Reflexology was an effective therapy well before modern times, and was first introduced in the UK in the 1960’s.
I attended a course this week held by Tony Porter, developer of Advanced Reflexology Techniques. He has 55 years of reflexology experience and is very keen for experienced reflexologists to be pioneers in his applications. He feels that the type of contact given to a reflex which is ‘disturbed’ is the most significant element of a treatment. Working this disturbance with different pressures and ‘working it out’ has had very positive results.
In my clinic, I use a mixture of clinical and holistic methods, and am very excited to expand on Tony’s Advanced Reflexology Techniques to help my clients, and to continue the traditional practice.
I look forward to seeing you soon.
