Foundations for Plantar Fasciitis in the Reflexology certification course series will cover specific assessments, techniques and protocols for clients that exhibit symptoms of plantar fasciitis. Stemming from a variety of underlying health concerns, reflexology is a strong partner and often the most consistent supportive modality for both acute and chronic foot discomfort and pain. The class utilizes the whole hand techniques and curriculum taught in the Level 1 class and builds on that foundation for enhanced care for these specific populations of clients. Structure of the feet and lower legs is emphasized. Prerequisite: MUST have taken Introduction to Integrative Reflexology

“Acu-cupping” is a technique of Chinese cupping, or fire cupping. Fire cupping refers to the traditional Chinese practice in which a cup is applied to the skin, suctioning the fascia and drawing energy to the area. Students will learn moving cupping techniques for myofascial treatments in which the cups are massaged over the body to release tension. Acu-cupping techniques are also introduced to students, using the cups to draw energy to acupuncture points in the body.
