Reflexology for Trauma, Addiction, and Recovery
COURSE DESCRIPTION: Chantel’s 2-day reflexology workshop is comprised of three segments that utilize lecture, demonstration, and hands-on practice. The three segments that make up the workshop are:
· The No-Mind Approach to Wellness (a Guide for Releasing the Diagnosis in Sessions)
· A Compassionate Intake Process to Assess and Address the Emotional Underbelly of the Client’s Discomfort &/or Dis-ease
· Reflexology Protocols for Trauma, Addiction, & Recovery
Adopting what Chantel calls “The No-Mind Approach to Wellness” during a session helps the practitioner to release judgment and the need to control or fix the client. It also creates an opportunity for the client to release what they too may be holding onto since their diagnosis. This, in turn, creates a more conducive environment for the client’s healing process. In addition, students will learn to cultivate a thorough and compassionate intake process. Because injury, illness, discomfort, and disease are not always what they seem, students will learn tools to assess and address not only the symptoms but also what may lie beneath the surface. The root
cause—or what Chantel refers to as the emotional underbelly of the injury, illness, or disease—will be explored. This combination of releasing the dis-ease (or diagnosis), and using the No-Mind Approach, coupled with addressing the origin of the dis-ease, provides a solid routine for the practitioner to follow.
In the third segment, students will learn:
· Anatomy and physiology of the brain and the areas, structures, and glands that play a role in thought processes, habitual negative thought patterns, and dissociative and detachment disorders and tendencies.
– Specific attention will be paid to the amygdala, hippocampus, hypothalamus, thalamus, basal ganglia, and pituitary gland. Also, an understanding of the role of the limbic system versus the prefrontal cortex and how to address these areas via the mini reflexology map in our hands and feet.
· Areas of the body that may show symptoms, pain, or imbalances in those who have experienced trauma and for those with active or past alcoholic or addictive behaviors.
· Which structures, glands, and areas of the brain require detailed work for trauma and addiction.
· The HPA axis and the target organs, glands, or systems affected by the trauma &/or addiction from a reflexology perspective.
· The neurological system and how reflexology works via this system, directly related to how we receive internal and external stimuli.
· Reflexology protocols to address trauma and addiction and how they may vary depending on the type of trauma or addition (e.g., opioid, alcohol, nicotine, marijuana, or stimulants).
· Self-care tools to use and impart to clients for maintenance and recovery.
These three segments aim to bring unity to the reflexology session by:
· Releasing our ideas of what the client needs.
· Suspending our judgment of the client or diagnosis.
· Learning how to retrieve information using a compassionate intake process.
· Understanding trauma, subtle energy, and how to create safe spaces for the client.
· Asking the right questions to target the underbelly of the dis-ease and empowering the client to discover the answers on their own.
· Aligning our energetic body to best serve our client.
· Having a rich understanding of the nervous system and the Bodymind in order to best address a client’s concerns.
In all segments, students will cultivate their heart space and enter what Chantel refers to as the “back body” to nurture good listening skills, heart-centered responses, and effective session. STUDENTS WILL LEARN:
· Reflexology techniques and methods.
· Anatomy and physiology of the brain.
· The parts of the brain responsible for mood, addictive behavior, and emotional processing.
· Reflexology protocols for trauma, addiction, and recovery.
· Specific reflexology methods and techniques for a detailed and integrative session.
· How to evaluate and assess the client using a compassionate intake process to best address the emotional underbelly of what is underneath the symptom &/or diagnosis.
