Orthopedic Reflexology training in Athens Greece Summer 2018


For the 3rd time Orthopedic Reflexology training will be offered to international students in Greece. Our two previous venues were in Tolo/Argos Greece.

This year we are moving to Athens and taking the date venue to the end of summer... at least for most of you, because in Greece summer lasts long.

It is a great oppurtunity to combine a vacation in Greece with one of the most popular and successfull reflexology trainings offered at the moment. 

The adress of the venue will be in the Nea Smirni area near the center of Athens. There are plenty of airbnb at great prices nearby. I can help you out with this also.

The dates of the course are 31st of August 1st & 2nd September 2018 between 9:30 am - 16:30pm.

This gives you more then enough time for sight seeing or enjoying the sea in Greece's capitol. During your 3 day course my full attention will be at you the participants so as to accomodate your visit and you get the most out of it! If you wish I will guide you personally in the afternoon and evening so to make sure you get the most from your visit to Athens.
A visit at the Acropolis museum along with a small sight seeing tour will be organized. In general for those who like, we will spend time together after the course and most likely with other Greek colleagues. (Admission fee's to museums and meals are at the participants expense.)

At this time of the year the sports teams will be getting ready for competition that will begin in September, it is most likely that we will have more then enough of them to practise on!

Orthopedic Reflexology Course Fee: 380euro/320euro* 

*(Early Bird Course Fee until 10th July 2018 included as a gift will be the "cup of greed of Pythagoras", organic beeswax handmade by me and the OR training DVD!)

ORTHOPEDIC REFLEXOLOGY

Orthopedic Reflexology is about utilizing the experience one has obtained in discriminating the reflex areas or the condition of the foot's tissues and then applying the correct technique, the proper amount of pressure for the appropriate amount of time, to achieve the "medium" as taught by Hippocrates in order for nature to heal. Orthopedic Reflexology practitioners use the condition of the tissues of the feet as a guide. Anatomical charts to understand the reflexes, zones, meridians and fascia, as well as to effectively manipulate the feet.
Orthopedic Reflexology will teach the theory and practical approaches of Hippocrates and Galens guide on the effects of "rubbing" – Anatripsis; the four meridians of Hippocrates, Orthopedic reflexology maps, understanding pain and a deeper exploration of the history and origin of reflexology and the "science" behind it. In Orthopedic Reflexology we also learn how to assist many local foot problems such as halux valgus and hammer toes, which in turn affects and helps treat disorders of the myoskeletal system and the internal organs.
Orthopedic Reflexology is based on the teachings of Hippocrates, the father of western medicine.This regards the art of rubbing - Anatripsis. Hippocrates wrote small concise passages on rubbing which he considered easy to learn and apply. Scattered in the Hippocratic corpus many references to rubbing (and of the feet) can be found.
During this 3 day instructive course you will be taught the anatomy of the feet which will include the four muscle layers, connective tissue e.g plantar fascia and retinaculum, the location of the bones of the feet and the route of the tendons and peripheral nerves entering the feet. Participants will be taught how to effectively treat all these structures, and make correlations within their existing knowledge and integrate the new techniques into their own existing practice.
The basis of the training is learning the theoretical and practical approaches of Hippocrates and Galen on the effects of "rubbing" – Anatripsis, as they have been handed down to us from their original books. Hippocrates describes in detail four main “veins” that are considered the forefather of the Chinese meridians. The Hippocratic veins will be outlined theoretically in detail, and approached practically until the knee and elbow respectively.
During the course attention is given to understanding modern concepts of pain and the “science” behind Reflexology and utilizing this knowledge in our every day work. The history and origin of reflexology is reviewed.
Upon completion of training in Orthopedic Reflexology participants will have the capacity to alleviate complementary to standard care of local foot problems such as hallux valgus and hammer toes, which in turn reflexively affect and help treat disorders found in other parts of the body.
Please note - Orthopedic reflexology is open to all, not only reflexologists. Therapists who are new to working the feet will notice the differences, and body workers can integrate the techniques learnt immediately into their practice.
In short...
- if you ever wanted to specialize in the lower limbs (anatomy physiology),
- if you ever wondered why what you already do with Reflexology is helpful,
- if you wonder why you are NOT helping,
- if you ever wanted to be introduced to the sphere of Greek medicine
This course is for you!
The majority of the course is focused on the practical applications of the Orthopedic Reflexology techniques. There are many structures in our feet and each one requires a unique technique.
