    Reflexology Massage Therapy's Secret Weapon
    Description:
    There are nearly 96,000 licensed massage therapists in the United States.[1]
    Do you have a plan that will have you standing out in the crowd?
    Would you like to be known as the go-to person in your community for chronic musculoskeletal pain management?
    Would you like to know how to work smarter, not harder?
    Look no further! Your secret weapon is just one day away.
    Reflexology has been shown to significantly “up the game” for massage therapists who know how to accurately combine its targeted therapeutic effects with massage. It’s the advantage that delivers better results than massage alone can, while reducing the wear and tear on your own body.
    In one short day, you will learn how to:
    ★ locate and stimulate 18 musculoskeletal reflexes on the feet
    ★ effectively combine reflexology with massage therapy to get better results for clients suffering from neck, back, shoulder, hip, arm and/or knee pain
    ★ sequence reflexology and massage to make the nervous system do most of the work
    ★ support people suffering with phantom pain
    ★ improve your reputation as a pain management specialist at the same time you are preserving the health of your own hands and body
    Preparation:
    Short fingernails. In consideration of your fellow students, please come with clean feet.
    Bring:
    Massage table; bottom and top sheets; blanket and pillows if you like when receiving; writing utensil; coloring pencils and either Shea or cocoa butter.

    Description:
    Thai foot reflexology is a marriage between the ancient healing arts of reflexology, Chinese tuina, Japanese shiatsu and Indian Ayurvedic yoga. Thai reflexology is easy and fun to learn and incorporate into your existing practice. Working with the feet, lower legs and knees, this 2000 year old, highly reputed session frees up blocked energy within the body’s many sen lines (Thai- based meridians) to produce a deep and unique feeling of balance, relaxation and well-being.
    Unlike conventional western reflexology, Thai reflexology takes a relatively short time to learn. This is because the session follows a protocol, rather than relying on extensive education and practice to create an effective session.
    In this class you will learn:
    ★ the history and philosophy behind Thai foot reflexology
    ★ how to give a gentle 60-minute traditional Thai reflexology session
    ★ the names and locations of the 6 major sen lines located in the feet & lower legs
    ★ the body systems and health issues governed by the sen lines
    ★ placement of conventional reflexology points along the sen lines
    ★ the difference between Thai reflexology and conventional western reflexology
    ★ how to incorporate hydrotherapy in your Thai reflexology session
    ★ how to choose efficacious lubricants for a Thai reflexology session
    ★ how to prepare and care for your Thai foot stick.
    You will be given an illustrated manual, Thai foot stick and a bottle of organic Thai oil.
    Preparation:
    Wear clothes that allow access to your lower legs and knees, and slip-on shoes that you can remove quickly and easily. Please be familiar with the bones of the lower legs and feet.
    Bring:
    Massage table (preferred) or reflexology chair; pure shea or cocoa butter; coloring pencils; highlighting pen; one regular-sized towel; two hand towels (same size); sheet; foot tub.
