Course contents for Day 1 – Theory
Although aimed at people with no prior knowledge, Reflexologists will find their knowledge an advantage. The benefit for them is to have a deeper understanding of the way emotional aspects and personalities are reflected on their clients’ feet. This knowledge can be used in a therapeutic way by those with counselling skills or can be used to interest potential clients into learning more about what their feet can tell them in terms of health or emotional issues.
The day will be very intense yet fun. Attendees will need to bring a pen, paper and wear footwear which is conducive to easy removal. They may also want to bring a wet wipe, as whilst they won’t be touching the feet, they may want to freshen up first!
The aim of the day is to give techniques to allow the attendee to be able to read emotions and personality from the feet. The theory given will allow them to extrapolate and arrive at an answer even when they are presented with something they haven’t seen before.
The day will be spent covering
- How do you feel about your feet?
- Size, width and length of the feet
- Line from little toe to big toe
- Individual meanings of the toes and the way this can be applied to the vertical zones
- Colour of the skin
- Gaps between toes
- Webbed toes
- Temperature of the feet
- Skin and related imbalances
- Nails and related imbalances
- Meanings of toe shapes
- Sequence of a treatment
- How to handle a tearful reaction
- Applying the knowledge learned by giving a foot reading
If there is a particular query about something they have seen on a foot, attendees are asked to bring a good, clear photograph of about A4 size to share with the group.
I encourage questions to be asked throughout the day rather than leaving them to the end of the day.
Both days are CPD accredited with different reflexology associations. Members of FHT receive 5 CPD credits per day and members of the Association of Reflexologists receive 2 points per hour to a max.
