Course Name: INTRODUCTION TO FOOT REFLEXOLOGY
CE Hours: 6/ $130

LIVE STUDY/ ENERGY WORK WITH HANDS ON THE FEET
COURSE OUTLINE:

Foot Reflexology is based on ancient Asian and Indian holistic energy healing
modalities, developed into the modern zone & reflex system by around 1930. It is now
widely popular in Spas, Massage Studios and has even found its way into the malls.
This class is an introduction to understanding the basic anatomy of the Five-zone
System and the Reflex Points. A Reflex Point is a specific area or point on the foot that
corresponds to another specific part of the body.
DURING THE POWER POINT SECTION of this class, the students will learn how
energy channels in the body are mapped into Zone-Systems and Reflex- areas on the
feet, corresponding to organs, glands and Chakras, indeed to our entire body.
We will learn how to consult with the client, prepare a safe practice environment and
how to practice the basic foot relaxing & thumb walking techniques.
We will explore the importance of relaxation as an antidote to chronic stress, and we will
also learn about the benefits of essential oils and relaxing breathing techniques.
The students will have hand outs of protocols, active participation is encouraged.
DURING THE PRACTICE SECTION of this class the students will take turns practicing
on each other, to experience both giving and receiving a basic foot reflexology
treatment, practicing correct hand placement and reflexology techniques, incorporating
breathing and essential oils for added relaxation.
Wearing vinyl gloves while giving a treatment will be encouraged.

LEARNING OUTCOMES AND BENEFITS:
Understanding how foot reflexology works will empower the students to apply the basics
of energy healing and offer a relaxing treatment to family, friends and clients.
Feeling the results of a treatment that can relax the entire body, may inspire the
students to continue on a holistic path to wellness,
We will explore the addition of breath and Aromatherapy to add value to the treatment.
The skill of how to balance, relax and energize the entire body and its systems is a very
desirable addition to any other healing modality, or it can be experienced as a treatment
of its own.
Students will learn to design their own signature treatments incorporating the art and
science of reflexology.
Good health and homeostasis depend on the clear and vibrant energy flow in our
bodies.

TIMELINE BREAKDOWN
2 HRS, POWER POINT/ LECTURE on the History & Anatomy of the Reflexology
System, and how energy manifest in the body.

WHAT MAKES ONE MASSAGE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING FOR BODY, MIND & SPIRIT, while another massage is just mediocre?

WHAT ALLOWS SOME MASSAGE THERAPISTS TO THRIVE IN OUR WORK AND IN OUR LIVES, while other massage therapists get hurt and/or burnt out?

WHAT MAKES AWARENESS MASSAGE LOMILOMI WORKSHOPS POWERFUL, INSPIRING, AND GREAT FUN?

About Lomilomi with Awareness Massage
The lomi lomi workshops I teach are designed to inspire both beginning and experienced massage therapists to develop awareness and presence within our own bodies, minds & spirits.

I am passionate about helping my students develop sensitive palpation skills as well as ways to most effectively use body weight to deliver deep yet gentle massage. I am also passionate about helping my students cultivate self-awareness and self-love. These practices contribute to our ability to give transformative and highly effective massage to our clients.

Lomilomi with Awareness Massage is done with DEEP yet GENTLE, LOVING touch. It is clinically focused, structure specific, problem solving massage, which pays special attention to BONES for healing at all levels, if so desired. This work is grounded in healing practices from the Big Island (Hawaii) via the lineage of Aunty Margaret Machado and Dr. Maka'ala Yates, D.C.

Lomilomi with Awareness Massage can help relieve pain and encourage ease of movement. Done skillfully this is highly effective treatment massage that also feels wonderful to receive, making it equally valuable in treatment and wellness focused settings.

Awareness Massage Lomilomi can be used to effectively relieve and/or resolve problems related to joint & muscular pain and movement restriction, joint replacement, surgery preparation & recovery, sciatica, injuries from falls and/or repetitive use, arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, headaches, asthma and other breathing problems, depression, emotional pain related to loss, high stress lifestyle, cancer, Parkinson's disease, problematic posture, pregnancy, and more.

I am committed to helping massage therapists adopt ways of working which are good for both ourselves and our clients so that we can minimize burnout and injury and can to continue to practice massage well into our elder years if we so desire.

Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) uses gentle, rhythmic movements to safely stretch your muscles and fascia. What is unique about AIS is the length of time involved with each and every stretch. AIS uses a 2-second rule for every stretch. Active muscle contractions create a safe and optimal environment for flexibility gains and healing. Repetition remodels tissue and creates a “pumping” action, which increases circulation to the targeted tissues. AIS prepares you and your clients for any activity – from everyday tasks to the rigors of athletics. Prevent injuries and promote faster recovery with a set of dynamic stretching protocols.

In this basic-level class you will learn how to stretch yourself, thereby gaining a better understanding of what each stretch should feel like. You will learn to evaluate your own range and movement potential. This knowledge will enable you to build a home stretching program for your clients as well as give you the skills to instruct your clients in their own self-care. Course content is geared towards healthcare and fitness professionals.
Wear comfortable clothing that allows you to stretch.

Lower Body: Learn how to stretch your low back, hips, knees and calves. These stretches are done mostly lying down.

Upper Body: Learn how to stretch your shoulders, neck and spine. These stretches are done seated and standing.

Please bring massage linens.  Wear comfortable clothing that allows you to stretch.

Professional Ethics for Bodyworkers

6 CE contact hours / NCBTMB approved
Subject: Sports Therapy

In the rapidly expanding field of massage therapy, concerns regarding ethical behavior and practice are also on the rise. Given the intimate setting of bodywork, it is crucial to establish a safe environment and a clear understanding between client and therapist as to what is expected. Therapists must also be able to effectively communicate within the parameters of each individual's unique personality, including their own.

The intent of this workshop is to define the broad scope of ethics, empower each therapist with their own personal Code of Ethics, and explore possible ethical situations which will challenge participants to make good decisions as to how they respond.
