Take your clients to a deeper level of relaxation with the added benefit of decreasing pain and fatigue in their feet and legs.
This class will teach you a dedicated 30 minute foot and leg (from the knee down) massage that can become an add-on to your massage offerings.
You will learn several new techniques and concepts related to foot and leg health, such as how to treat plantar fasciitis, how to work gently to rehydrate connective tissues and eliminate pain, movements and hand techniques that are soothing and also some that are stimulating.
We will also look at the 6 meridians of the feet and legs to become knowledgeable about which organs systems we are affecting, and which points to avoid during pregnancy. This massage includes hot towels and some draping techniques.
Recent studies have shown that foot massage reduces pain and anxiety experienced before and after surgery.
Bring a Bolster, one flat sheet and one fitted sheet, 2 bath towels, 4 hand towels, massage oil and cream that can be mixed in a dish. Wear loose pants that can be pulled up above the knees.
