10 hour Intensive Training Workshop. Minimum 4 participants.
Running December 2019 - May 2020
With the knowledge of Ayurvedic principles and energy work I have developed the training that gives you the tools to use Reflexology as a complex holistic therapy. I created short and intensive foot reflexology training for people who want to use it in their profession, to help their beloved ones or as a self-healing method. Half of the time you will relax as we learn through receiving the treatment as well as giving.
Ayurvedic Foot Reflexology is not just a foot massage. It is a therapeutic treatment that brings physical and mental changes in the people suffering from various health issues. Reflexology stimulates the flow of oxygen/prana into the areas with a blockage or a stagnant energy, it helps to improve blood circulation an remove any deposit of uric acid from the body. Kansa Vatki ayurvedic foot massage uses a three-metal bowl and a specific oil or a triphala ghee to rub into your feet. The metal reacts with the skin, removes inflammation and draws the toxins out of the body. Marma energy points stimulation at the end of the session helps to release stagnant negative emotions, decreases stress and tension, calms down the mind and emotions. In Ayurveda, it is believed that mind and eyes have a great relationship with feet, and its massage increases calmness of mind and improves eyesight.
Ayurvedic reflexology is a new therapeutic concept that started developing after year 2000. It has been developed by Australian therapist, educator and Dr. Robert Svoboda student of Ayurveda Sharon Stathis - ayurvedicreflexology.com. It combines traditional indian foot massage ‘padabhyanga’ with a modern reflexology that was developed by Eunice Ingham in early 1950’.
- An art and science that deals with the principle that there are reflex areas on the feet and hands which correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. Reflexology is a unique method of using thumbs and fingers on these reflex areas.
Applying appropriate pressure to these specific areas:
Relieves stress and tension
Improves blood supply and promotes the unblocking of nerve impulses
Helps nature achieve normal balanced condition of body
- Traditional ayurvedic foot massage harmonizing all three doshas Vata, Pitta and Kapha. It has three stages:
1. Foot massage:
Warming up the tissues, releasing tension from joints, muscles and tendons, increasing the flow of energy
2. Kansu Vataki Massage with 3-metal bowl (kasa):
Copper decreases the pain and inflammation, zinc stimulates immunity and digestion, tin improves digestion, removes headaches and insomnia – makes up a very relaxing treatment
Conductivity of metals reacts with energy field of body and harmonizes all three doshas which helps body to be more efficient
3. Marma massage:
Helps to detoxify and rejuvenate the organism, brings back the energy balance. Marma acupressure therapy is a system of working with 107 prana balancing points that have been used in Ayurvedic healing for more than 5000 years. 5 of the marma points are located on each foot and hand. A simple definition of marma is a connection point where physical meets the spiritual (prana or breath, vital life force, psychic energy). Prana is the vibrant electromagnetic energy of nature that moves through channels called nadis or meridians. Marma points are the doorways to the 7 Chakras/energy centres. Physically, a marma point is a junction on the body where two or more types of tissue meet, such as bones/asthi, muscles/mamsa, ligaments/snayu, joints/sandhi and veins/sira.
If the marma is functioning normally prana can move freely. If the marma is not functioning properly flow of prana is limited or can be completely stagnant, that leads to various health issues or mental discomfort. It is recommended to stimulate marma points regularly for maintaining the optimal health and well being.
