This event is part of the series: Round about...
A fresh view on the feet
They are maybe the most important part of our movement system - and very overlooked, in this webinar we present a new look on the feet.
”I wish I knew more about the structure of the feet and about problems in the feet themselves”.
- is a statement we have heard form many reflexologists in our teaching sessions around the world.
In this workshop we go deep into the tissues, joints, muscles, ligaments, and how they all work together in the anatomical masterpiece called feet!
Anatomy - sore reflexes or sore joints/ligaments?
We will analyze selected reflexes in relation to tendons, muscles and attachments. Releasing these structures makes reflexology much easier.
The feet as fascial tuning of the body
The way we contact the ground with our feet influences the fascial web of the entire body.
Learn how to tune the fascia from the feet, and the role of proprioceptors in keeping the balance.
Prepare the foot - and get better results
80% of most reflexology treatments are done directly on the strong plantar fascia.
We spend 5 minutes on releasing the plantar fascia and other structures in the foot to prepare the foot for treatment.
Joint release - a popular technique
Gentle manipulation of the many joints in the feet is a technique we use for many foot problems.
It is also an excellent preparation of the foot before reflexology treatment.
- and the clients will love it.
- Sprains, inflammation and swellings in the feet
- Mortons Neuroma
- Heel spurs
- Plantar fascitis
- Tarsal tunnel syndrome
- Hallux valgus (bunions)
- Sprained ankle
- Tendon knots, cramps
- and more...
A very common problem and often simple to cure.
Former participant: "- since attending Round about: the Foot, treating heel spurs is now like a sport for me"
Bursae of the feet and their inflammation
Inflamed bursae is a very common but overlooked cause of pain in the feet.
The foot on the foot
Reflexes for the feet themselves are absent in many classical reflexology charts.
We present foot reflexes from different traditions.
Trigger points on the feet
We present selected trigger points, their associated pain conditions, and relation to foot reflexes.
The sciatic nerve - the nerve of reflexology
The sciatic nerve in a different perspective.
We follow the sensory impulses of reflexology through the nerves of the feet, up the tibial and peroneal nerves and into the sciatic nerve.
As a fundamental approach to addressing various foot and ankle issues, we always work the sciatic nerve.
Better posture for better feet
Whether you're dealing with fallen arches, flat feet, dropped forefoot, hallux valgus, or other structural issues, we introduce you to an elegant 6-step posture adjustment method, inspired by the work of Danish medical doctor Flemming Vestberg.
Touchpoint is well-known around the world for a high professional standard in reflexology. I recommend their teachings, which can widen your practice with great benefit.
