A healthy spine is vital to living an active life – to move, stand, walk and run. That’s why the spinal reflexes are held in great importance in Reflexology protocols for general wellness and pain management.

In this workshop we will explore:

  • The spinal structures: vertebras, spinal cord, paraspinal muscles, and nerve roots.
  • Their reflex locations on the feet, hands, and ears.
  • Basic reflexology techniques and application to the spinal reflexes.

This class is ideal for those looking to support clients with a history of spinal injuries and disorders looking for additional pain management. Bodywork practitioners, acupuncturists, students enrolled in holistic health courses, and the layperson looking for self-care routines to use at home will all benefit from taking this course. Please note that this class does not fulfill national education requirements to practice as a Reflexologist.
