Neuro-Endocrine Disorders and Ear Hand Foot Reflexology    Balance and imbalance – that’s what health and well-being come down to in the body. There are two systems of primary influence over balance and imbalance: the nervous and endocrine systems. In this mostly hands-on workshop we will learn where and how to reflex the feet, hands and ears for optimal results within these two systems. We will learn reflexes for not only the major glands of the endocrine system including pineal, hypothalamus, pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, thymus, pancreas, ovaries, and testes but also six other locations in the body where vital hormones are produced. We will learn nervous system reflexes for the brain, spinal cord, cauda equina, 12 cranial nerves, vagus nerve, spinal nerves, cervical, celiac, superior & inferior mesenteric ganglia, and sympathetic & para sympathetic nervous systems. We will explore the vital functions of each of these parts of the body, common types of stressors, and related malfunctions and pathologies that might show up in our clients. This class is great for both the beginning and veteran reflexologist, massage therapists, bodyworkers, and any natural health care practitioner. Visit americanacademyofreflexology for more details. Instructed by veteran teacher and leader in the field of reflexology, Bill Flocco.  Sat & Sun 9 am—5 pm (14 credits CE hours for ARCB, NCBTMB, ABMP and many states Massage/Reflexology license)

Working with Seniors via Ear Hand Foot Reflexology    There are over 827,677 citizens in Washington who are 65 or older and would benefit by having you as their reflexologist. Demand for reflexology for seniors is growing dramatically across America. Every reflexologist, massage therapist and bodyworker is likely to have many senior clients with issues unique to this age group. Discover over a dozen of the most common elder age related health issues based on pathologies by anatomical system. During this primarily hands-on workshop, Bill Flocco will guide us through where and how to reflex not only the feet, but for better results, the hands and ears, for these issues. A unique aspect of this class is applying nurturing compassionate touch to the seven regions of the human body, feet, hands, and outer ears. Special attentiveness to contraindications, cautions and elder considerations will also be covered.
