About the Workshop:


The feet are the foundation for our whole body and for our whole life!  It is surprising that, nonetheless, most massage therapists do not know the muscles of the feet in detail!  Every therapist needs a thorough knowledge of the all the muscles of the feet and techniques to address them.  This class will give you that knowledge. if you take the class on a Sunday, that Monday you will have a new and tremendously effective therapeutic protocol for the feet.

There are four layers of muscles on the bottoms of our feet and two on the top.  These, plus the extrinsic muscles coming from the lower leg, give us stability, balance, power, momentum and spring in our steps.  Once you know the anatomy of these muscles and their functions in our structure and our energy, your work with the feet will be transformed.  The benefits for your clients will be off the charts and contribute greatly to their satisfaction and repeat business.

This class will be very user-friendly as an on-line workshop.  You will palpate all this anatomy yourself, working on yourself or on a friend or family member.  Using your computer (or phone if necessary) you will work from home or in your office while being guided by the instructor.
