Reflexology Techniques to Enhance Health Care in a Variety of Settings As health care practitioners in daily contact with human suffering, we are eager to add skills that can help. Learning to apply reflexology techniques to yourself and experiencing the effects in class gives you an excellent foundation for using them in your professional setting to enhance the quality and effectiveness of your work. This course provides you with the skills to apply hand and foot reflexology techniques to patients and clients in numerous settings, and to instruct the patient in using reflexology for symptom relief. The clearing of a bladder infection can be remarkably enhanced or an asthma or allergy episode subdued with basic reflexology skills. The physical therapist and massage practitioner can easily integrate methods for relief of back, neck, knee, hip and sciatic pain into sessions. The midwife and OB nurse can help relieve the chronic discomforts of pregnancy with reflexology methods. Learning basic reflexology theory and skills, and the most effective ways to apply them to yourself, can also refresh and revitalize you, relieving a variety of symptoms surprisingly quickly.
