This course is perfect if you are looking to help more individuals and couples with fertility concerns, but feel you need a greater understanding of the subject. With its emphasis on two key areas: the body's hormonal system and the emotional elements associated with infertility; this course will enhance your practice.
There are many different reflexology courses looking at reflexology and fertility, but this course takes a natural approach. Just reflexology is really good at helping clients to fall pregnant. In this course you will discover why this is, with a strong focus on the endocrine system, and take you through the physical and emotional journey couples go through, learn about assisted conception techniques and and also learn some new reflexology techniques to enhance your treatment of clients wanting to conceive.
The course is for qualified reflexology practitioners, and is a blended course, with preparation work, a one day face to face workshop in Bursledon, Southampton, and case studies.
This course will look at how Reflexologists can adapt treatments to help couples taking a natural and non invasive approach and covers:
A recap of the reproductive system
The endocrine system including the effects of stress on the endocrine system and the effect this can have on fertility.
The causes of infertility in women and men
Emotional problems often associated with failing to conceive
Key reflexes and how to use them
Common medical interventions and other methods
How to support clients through interventions such as IVF
