This workshop takes an in-depth look at nervous system foot reflexes covering aspects such as cranial nerves, spinal nerves, nerve plexuses and an introduction to Metamorphosis. Furthermore, we identify nerves directly associated with the foot; focusing on foot nerve pain and practising to distinguish between a sensitive nerve and a sensitive reflex.  Spinal Reflexology can be an invaluable form of therapy to address both physical and emotional imbalances.
