This course designed as an advanced workshop open to qualified Reflexologists.

Malfunctions of the digestive system have a direct affect on our entire general health, which if left untreated can lead to more chronic problems. Digestive problems are increasing in the modern world, particularly in the West.

In UK we spend billions of pounds on over-the-counter and prescription medication hoping to relieve digestive problems. Symptoms can come in the form of constipation, diarrhoea, gas, bloating, irritable bowel syndrome, and other common complaints of a digestive nature. Untreated, digestive disorders may affect one`s quality of life, immune system, social well-being, and job productivity. On the other hand, the side-effects of steroid medications and other drugs used to treat digestive problems are very hard on the body.

There are ways to address the underlying factors that contribute to the problem without the use of drugs. Research offers evidence that Reflexology, for example, can be very effective in treating digestive conditions.

In this workshop we learn about what the problems are and what may cause them, and about how reflexology can be used to aid your client’s digestive health, leading to overall good general health and well being.

During the course of workshop the following subject areas will be covered:

  • ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY OF THE ABDOMINAL CAVITY
    digestive and accessory organs

  • COMMON PATHOLOGY OF THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM, e.g.
    IBS indigestion constipation flatulence diverticulitis Crohn’s disease etc.

  • CONTRAINDICATIONS AND CONTRA-ACTIONS TO TREATMENT
  • REFLEXOLOGY TREATMENTS FOR DIGESTIVE HEALTH:
    how to adapt your treatment to suit your client’s needs

This workshop is for therapists who wish to add a new dimension to their therapy and who may wish to specialise in this particular area of Reflexology.

Please note- this is a practical masterclass and students will be required to wear clinical wear.
