This continuing education course in reflexology is based on 30 years of research and proven clinical techniques of Dr. Jesus Manzanares, M.D.? Exclusively developed for the reflexology professional by an integrative medicine physician and researcher, this cutting-edge training is unique to traditional reflexology education.
Most extraordinary is that Dr. Jesus Manzanares travels from Barcelona, Spain to the United States to personally train reflexology professionals, providing a rare and up-close opportunity to learn about his detailed methods of research and clinical reflexology.
Who Can Attend
Classes are open to all health practitioners, wellness professionals and educators interested in contemporary science-based education in reflexology: reflexologists, massage therapists, holistic bodyworkers, nurses, physical therapists and doctors who want to learn reflexology from an advanced and clinical perspective.
Professional practitioners of reflexology will be able to incorporate the Manzanares Method? techniques into their existing model of reflexology to enhance career, confidence and? outcomes in patient and client care.
Benefits From This Training
With this advanced level of reflexology education, participants will benefit from:
PROFESSIONAL CREDIBILITY and recognition, locally and nationally as a science-based reflexologist
COMPETENCY and renewed confidence with education founded on evidence-based research
COMMUNITY and connection with other professionals seeking to advance their skills and expertise
SUPPORT for your professional status using appropriate promotion of your training as outlined below
Students report that the Manzanares Method? of Reflexology has impacted them more than any other reflexology training. Dr. Manzanares pulls the participants into a world of advanced science-based knowledge about the body?s neurophysiology and the foot-to-body connection.
The practitioner can immediately integrate these skills into an existing reflexology model and scope of practice, equipped with a scientific perspective of reflexology.
Students are guided to master a highly developed sense of palpation to detect the dynamic state of tissues within the feet, to understand the composition of and locate deposits in the reflex areas and to apply reflexology that supports the functions of body systems and allows healing to progress.
Dr. Manzanares’ curriculum is based on his original goals he has achieved in reflexology research. Students will learn how fundamental these research findings are for all reflexologists:
- Validation of how reflexology works (mechanism of action)
- Accurate anatomically-based maps of foot reflex areas and the foot-to-body connection
Participants will be able to: gain an understanding of Dr. Manzanares’ research; describe the science-based foundation for reflexology; acquire new palpation techniques to locate deposits; experience an introduction to medical-based mapping of foot reflexes; learn and apply new methods of reflexology from a therapeutic approach; expand critical thinking skills to plan reflexology treatments based on Dr. Manzanares protocols; explore thinking like a researcher vs. a theologian.
Live on-site classes are taught in a two-day format of Saturday & Sunday, at venues across the U.S.
Classes are CE approved by the?American Reflexology Certification Board for Provider #POO118. Each two-day class provides 16 CE credit hours, a Certificate of Attendance and CE Transcript. This course does not provide licensing or a credentialing degree of any type.
Prerequisites are not required to attend any class or to repeat classes for advanced training or as a refresher. It is optional to attend one class or multiple classes.? To acquire proficiency in technique and an understanding of the?scientific concept of reflexology demands repetition and continued study.
There is a strong focus on hands-on work with extensive demonstrations and a combination of lecture, students exchanges and learning the reflex areas by drawing on each other’s feet. Every student will experience Dr. Manzanares’ personal reflexology touch. Media teaching aids include video projection of demonstrations, MRI and radiology imaging, biopsy study graphics, EEG graphs and research slides.
Each class varies in presentation and can include but is not limited to the following topics:
- Reflexology concept from a scientific perspective
- The nervous system’s role in reflexology
- Neuro-physiology of the reflexology impulse
- Biopsy of foot tissue deposits to study composition
- Deposit characteristics related to specific disorders
- Manzanares Method foot-to-body mapping
- Components for reflexology protocols
- Theoretical vs. real foot assessment
- EEG brain wave studies
- Palpation of deposits, assessment and protocols
- Dosage of reflexology (intensity, duration, frequency)
- Extensive practicum with supervision by Dr. Manzanares
- Research and clinical findings for most major pathologies
- Updates on current research and investigations in progress Among the many research topics Dr. Manzanares will discuss in this course includes the use of reflexology for ADHD/Learning Disability and for Hypertension.
