VISUAL REFLEXOLOGY WORKSHOP
Visual Reflexology workshop
Next Course Date: May 4th 2018
Times: 10am to 5.30pm
Suitable for all levels of experience as well as reflexology students
As reflexologists the more feet we look at, the more we realise just how different each pair appears. This is because no two individuals are the same and the entire history of each person is reflected on their feet. Visual reflexology is not about ‘feet reading’ of the personality, but using the appearance of the feet to understand the entire holistic health of the person. It is not used to diagnose but to help balance the health of the client: a healthy appearance to the feet will indicate a healthy person.
Clues on the Feet
We can gain an enormous amount of information about our clients by analysing the overall appearance of their feet as well as that of individual reflexes. Each visual aspect of the feet can tell us something: the variation in colour, as well as the lines and textures of the skin, the dips and swellings of the tissue beneath, the tension and torsion of the joints and the shape of the arches of the feet: these are all telling us something about the health of the individual reflexes, and the person as a whole, if only we know how to read them.
• Learn how visual reflexology will help you to structure your treatments.
• Use your observations to guide the questions you ask of clients and help deepen your rapport with them.
• Try different reflexology techniques based specifically on visual observations.
• Understand how your visual skills can complement palpation.
• Deepen your knowledge of the nature of the reflexes.
• Realise the benefits of photo taking for record keeping.
Introduction to this aspect of reflexology.
Followed by a Slide Presentation:
During the slide presentation we will look at photos of lots of different feet. Angela will give a talk about the photos and lead a discussion and a Q&A session in order to give us a deeper understanding of the appearances of the reflexes on them, and what they may be telling us.
Practical group work:
We will study each participant’s feet in turn.
Using what we have learnt so far we will see how much we can tell visually from the reflexes about each person’s health.
We will get immediate feedback as to how accurate we are in our observations. Then we will look for visual clues to any health issues we may have missed.
We will also practice some reflexology techniques based specifically on visual analysis, and note how they can complement our palpatory skills.
N.B. This is not feet reading of the personality. Whilst we look at the feet from a holistic perspective, it is completely reflexology based.

“I think we all learned a lot & it will be extremely useful when working with clients. In fact, I’ve already found it to be so when treating a couple of clients last week” (Mo Bowyer)
“I can thoroughly recommend this workshop. It really helps you to focus on gaining maximum information from the feet before even touching them. Angela is also an extremely good facilitator”. (Jerry Snell, West London AoR Group Organiser)
“Just wanted to say that Angela’s workshops are really worth putting in your diary. I went to one and can’t believe how much I learnt!” (Claire Freedman)
