The application of pressure points to the feet or hands. The theory behind Reflexology is that the pressure points correspond with the organs and systems of the body. It is a relaxing treatment and may also assist to alleviate stress.
There are big plans this year with study and in the Clinic !
I am attending Mentor days in February for Oncology Massage and scar management followed by Complex Lymphatic therapies in Canberra in March .
Following this path has been an incredible journey . So far completing Oncology Massage modules 1 & 2 . This course has taken me on such a rewarding journey of knowledge in theory and practical application of Oncology massage and I look forward to the next stage.
What is Trigger point therapy?
A trigger point is a tight area within the muscle that causes referred pain to other areas of the body and locally.
The use of trigger point therapy in a treatment releases constricted areas in the muscles therefore alleviating pain. The benefits can be felt following just one treatment and the ongoing effects of regular treatments can help alleviate pain from chronic injury and muscular stress.
