INTEGRATING REFLEXOLOGY INTO PATIENT & CLIENT CARE  

Imagine being able to support the entire body in its return to balance by working solely with the feet or hands. Reflexology is an ancient and time-honored therapeutic technique which does just that. Specific areas of the feet and hands ‘reflex’ distant aspects of the body, sending a signal to return to equilibrium and bringing about relaxation, healing and balance. Pain is eased, nerves are calmed, circulation is returned to a free-flowing norm and the entire body is harmonized. It enables us to gain and maintain good health in a natural way, revitalizing and rejuvenating ourselves. 

Healthcare Professionals: envision being able to quickly and effectively create relaxation for your clients and patients. Begin any treatment with reflexology and prime the entire body for whatever comes next whether that is a full body massage, a manicure, pedicure, or simply putting a client or patient at ease. LMTs: If reflexology was a part of your educational path in becoming a massage therapist, this is a great refresher course. 

This introductory training offers: an overview of reflexology basics including history, benefits, cautions/contraindications, foot maps indicating reflex points, a demonstration of the elements of a basic reflexology session, supervised, hands-on practice giving and receiving reflexology techniques which can be put into practice with clients and patients, or used as self-care. Participants also receive an introductory manual including all of the above-mentioned information.

Date/Time: Monday, November 13, 2017, 2-6 p.m.  

Location: Finger Lakes School of Massage, Mt. Kisco, NY.  (90 minutes from Hartford, CT)

INTEGRATED ENERGY THERAPY [IET] - BASIC LEVEL

Do you or your clients struggle with chronic tension that seems connected to emotional stress? How often have you addressed stress and tension with body work techniques only to have those same patterns of strain re-emerge? Emotion related to traumas, prolonged anxiety, or difficult experiences is often not fully processed at the time of the event. The body miraculously stores the emotional memory of the event on a cellular level. Subsequent experiences can then trigger that emotion to the surface of consciousness without ever fully releasing it. This negative feedback cycle creates repeating patterns of physical stress.  

IET is a hands-on healing therapy which targets and facilitates the release of stored emotion from the cellular memory of the body through the use of acupressure techniques applied to specific integration points located bilaterally along the spine. It blends effortlessly with other body work techniques, enhancing benefits, gently allowing physical equilibrium to return and producing profoundly healing effects. For those who are interested in the metaphysical aspects of healing modalities, IET also introduces the concept of angelic healing energy and techniques to use that energy to augment the healing power of IET sessions. For those who have no interest in this realm of healing, it is not necessary to believe in or practice the metaphysical aspects this therapy. IET techniques are a powerful approach to facilitate healing with or with out the metaphysical connection.   

In the Basic level training, you learn techniques designed to access and release physical stress related to held emotion that has been stored on a cellular level within the tissue. You will identify power integration points used to facilitate the release of that stored tension from the cellular memory, receive complete training the Basic IET treatment for self and others, a certificate of completion, and a detailed illustrated manual for future reference.  

Like many other energy work systems, each level of IET training offers an attunement which opens, clears and expands the energy anatomy of the student. Unlike protocols often advised in other energy work modalities, there is no need for an extended period of assimilation between each level of training. The successive levels of attunement complement and further enhance the benefits of the previous attunements with ease and grace.
