Reflexology is an ancient healing art that uses manual pressure applied to specific areas on the feet, hands and ears. It is a powerful modality that is used to promote balance within the body and it can be learned by anyone. Oct 26; 10:00a.m. - 4:30p.m. Instructor: Drake Ewing, EAMP. 5.5 HRS

Reflexology is a beautiful thing for couples to do for each other because it promotes communication and closeness within the relationship. We will cover topics such as history, theories on how it works, and the benefits of reflexology. We will also explore issues of expectations and boundaries and how to navigate them for success. The primary goal is for you to learn practical skills that can be used right away. This will be accomplished through hands-on practice in a safe and respectful environment.

Upon completion of this workshop you will be able to:

  • Explain how the body is mapped on the foot
  • Identify anatomical landmarks on the foot
  • Demonstrate reflexology warm up techniques
  • Create a safe and respectful space for you and your partner
  • Explore non-verbal communication with your partner
  • Use healthy boundaries with loved ones
