The Science of Energy Flow® Foot Reflexology




The Science of Energy Flow® Face-to-Face Educational Retreat is a sine wave of instruction in ancient healing traditions which includes the study of simple techniques for affecting correction in the energy field with the use of herbs, essential oils, and water, and the “tuning” of health patterns through the feet – Foot Reflexology.  This course develops your skills in creating and maintaining healing environments of power, beauty, and protection while learning how to assist others in transmuting habits that resist well-being. Attendees will design a practice plan for the integration of techniques learned in practice (licensed attendees) and self/family care (unlicensed attendees). This hands-on course is for anyone seeking new techniques for demonstrating care to self and others. 

The Science of Energy Flow®
provides opportunities to gain greater under-standing (pun intended) of the role of visualization in healing human physiology and to develop skills in intuitive assessment and pattern recognition.  For those seeking additional and advanced study of the science of energy flow see program information on becoming an Herbal Diplomat
