Dear Members,

Without any prejudice to what other associations are saying here is our view on current situation with COVID-19 lockdown and getting back to work.

The government is doing the best they can to stop spreading of the virus. They have protocols and ‘Road Map' in place to follow in order to stop the disease.

Asking them to speed-up this regulation would be just reckless if you care for your own health and the others.

Denise Hanlon, with her background in Traditional Chinese Medicine, holistic massage and Reflexology has blended these three therapies to give you this wonderful workshop of Meridian massage Reflexology.

The beginnings of Reflexology are to be found in ancient Chinese & Indian healing modalities of acupressure, acupuncture and massage. These ancient skills are what inspired Dr William Fitzgerald, the American ear, nose and throat specialist, when he studied in Asia and through this, he developed his very famous reflex zones therapy. Through this workshop, we will gain an understanding of where this all began in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) theory. We will look at the balancing of Qi and harmonising the energy fields of the body, the concept of Ying and Yang, holographic microcosms and follow the paths of the energy meridians and the locations of many acupressure points used for common disorders.

Students will learn about the channels that begin and end in the feet & hands and how by interacting with one channel or point we can affect the paired channel/distal points in other areas of the body.

Students will work on lower legs and feet, arms and hands, using massage, reflexology and acupressure techniques to give their clients a beautifully relaxing yet stimulating treatment which works on the whole body to bring back harmony and balance.
