Relieve Foot Tension
Resolve, Reflex & Relax Aching Feet
Foot reflexology is a practice involving application of pressure to the feet with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion. It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that purportedly reflect an image of the body on the feet. Many professions have taken up foot reflexology from cosmetologist stop nurses. Foot reflexology is now being introduced into hospitals and HMOs, and is even being considered for insurance purposes. Foot reflexology is not limited to just the foot. It also includes the knees and legs.
Hands-on Training & Practical Application
Thai-Issan Massage Academy provides an excellent, new approach to natural performance enhancement for foot reflexology massage training. Our course offers hands-on training in the practical application, as well as provides a theoretical understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the body. We also teach our students to identify stress cues, which are parts of the foot that show adaptation to stress. The assessment of stress cues allows students to target the areas of stress and provide relaxation appropriate to each individual. In addition, students are trained to not only use their hands and fingers, but to also use sticks in this practice.
Foot Reflexology: Feet Do Not Lie
Students are taught to make the health connections between various parts of the feet and health in other parts of the body. It is often said that feet do not lie, and there are a number of telltale signs in foot reflexology to indicate when a client may be experiencing stress in a particular body part or organ of the body. While reflexology is not considered an exact treatment tool, it may be used as yet another tool of insight for health.
Health Clues & Stress Cues
The extremities (hands and feet) of the body can offer many health-related clues, and foot reflexology offers both the therapist and client an opportunity to discuss concerns related to health based on what may be discovered or worked on during a therapy session. Some topics that may be reviewed could relate to circulation, repetitive stress, how much energy the client may feel they have, etc.
