Hand reflexology is an art! It is a fantastic adaptation to foot reflexology and valuable for a variety of clients in a multitude of settings. By palpating and applying pressure to specific points, the entire body can benefit. The aim is to stimulate reflexes points with precision causing the body to respond by increasing localized circulation and nerve impulses. This rapidly spreads the electrical activity within the membrane from one reflex to another leading to the transmission of information to the central nervous system. This then responds by sending out a response impulse to organs, glands and muscles.
It is a fact that the reflexes sit deeper in the hands. As a result you must alter the pressure in order to produce the same results as foot reflexology. However, if your client prefers a gentler treatment , then hand reflexology is a wonderful alternative. Some clients including elderly, bereaved, terminally ill clients and bed-bound find hand reflexology more beneficial than foot reflexology. Stress and emotional disorders also respond particularly well to hand reflexology.
This course is a must for all qualified reflexologists. You will learn how to tailor your treatments to client’s requirements, work in different venues and with different clients, those who may have been deprived of your treatment in the past. The enhanced knowledge will also enable you to improve homecare advice for clients enabling them to work towards their own wellbeing by showing them reflex points to work themselves.
During the course the following subject areas will be covered:
- Anatomy & Physiology of the structures of the hand
- Benefits of Hand Reflexology
- Contraindications and contra-actions to treatment
- Working position and adaptations
- New client base
- Application and techniques for hand reflexology: how to adapt your treatment to suit your client’s needs
- Using hand reflexology for self help (either own use or as aftercare for clients for between treatments)
Often seen as the poor relation to foot reflexology hand reflexology is a simple treatment to offer and very effective. Clients who are unable to receive foot reflexology will appreciate the treatment, the touch and the time you can give them.
