Precision reflexology for cancer and supportive care

Saturday 21 September 2024, 10:45am to 5:30pm and Sunday 22 September 2024, 9:30am to 4:15pm

Course tutors: Jenny Charlton and Susie Ray (from the School of Precision Reflexology)

This 2-day course covers the principles and rationale essential for precision work as developed by Jan Williamson of the School of Precision Reflexology. The focus will be on working with the subtle energy of the body using light touch ‘linking’ techniques to connect through the reflexes on the feet. In this way, power and precision is added to a reflexology treatment without the need for strong physical pressure.

This course will concentrate on the techniques that are particularly relevant to caring for people at a time when they need support and care, whether physical, emotional or spiritual. The tutors will demonstrate how the relevant ‘links’ can be incorporated into a reflexology treatment or simple foot massage. The result is an holistic treatment which is appropriate for people when they feel vulnerable and in need of care and attention.

Prerequisite: Level 3 Reflexology diploma or equivalent and at least 1 year’s therapeutic practice.

Location: Education centre, The Christie, 550 Wilmslow Road, Withington, Manchester M20 4XQ. Note: the main entrance is on Oak Road, M20 3DA.

Please note: The Integrated Therapies Training Unit (ITTU) continuously strives to provide current, evidence-based educational events to equip integrative therapists and health care professionals with relevant skills and knowledge to apply in their roles. Although many of the courses discuss ways of adapting practice when providing therapies to patients with a cancer diagnosis, we maintain that the aims of our educational events are to increase understanding of cancer and the delivery of suitable complementary therapies for therapeutic purposes in this patient cohort. Therapies are to be offered alongside medical treatment as a means to enhance physical and psychological wellbeing, and never as a treatment for the underlying cancer.
