Reflexology Supporting Menopause
Every woman will experience Peri menopause/Menopause uniquely and every one of us will have varying symptoms that can affect our everyday wellbeing, and the people around us. The menopause is not an illness but is rather a natural gradual process whereby a woman’s body moves out of childbearing years and aims to head into a liberated and more relaxed phase of life. The transition through peri menopause to menopause and beyond can be a very difficult one.
Reflexology has been found to be very effective in helping both the physical and emotional symptoms of the menopause without the side effects associated with drug-based treatments. It truly is a wonderful therapy to help women in their journey through the menopause.
On this one-day workshop you will learn up to date information and techniques that can dramatically change your client’s day to day life.
We will cover:
- What is The Menopause
- Society’s perceptions
- The three stages of menopause, Pre menopause, Peri menopause and Post Menopause.
- What happens to the menstrual cycle and Ovarian Reserve?
- The role of hormones
- Physical symptoms of the menopause
- How to treat these symptoms
- Effects on mood and wellbeing and how to treat
- Long term symptoms and how to treat
- HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy)
- Dietary advice
- Safety Considerations
As a Reflexologist, by listening to your client and establishing how this transition is affecting their lives, you will be able to use the techniques you have learnt to support your client on their menopausal journey.

The workshop will be largely practical in content and as a result, you will need appropriate clinic workwear for the duration of the course. This is very much a hands-on day therefore allowing sufficient time to practice and perform the techniques under the guidance of the tutor. During the course, you will partner up with another therapist and will get the chance to perform the techniques taught as well as being the recipient. This is because understanding what the techniques should feel like is an invaluable tool for you as a therapist.
