This course examines the basic theory and techniques of foot Reflexology and how this can benefit clients with cancer. Topics will include the following:

  • A review of the anatomy of the feet
  • What is Reflexology and how it works
  • The history of Reflexology
  • The general benefits of Reflexology with emphasis on stress reduction
  • The role stress plays in cancer
  • How Reflexology/Foot Massage reduces stress
  • The value and benefits of stress reduction in cancer patients through Reflexology
  • An overview of the reflexes and referral patterns of the feet Zone Therapy

The goal of this course is to learn foot massage techniques that have a basis in Reflexology and be able to apply those techniques to the various types of cancer a client may have to help reduce stress and relieve pain. Often clients will respond to reflexology with renewed strength and energy and see an improvement in their natural vitality. Reflexology can speed up recovery from major surgery and make the recovery process itself more bearable. The aim is to provide therapists with new techniques for working on clients when you cannot utilize other massage techniques on the body. These techniques can also be incorporated into any style of bodywork as well.
