Nerve Reflexology Training, Level I (of II): How to Address Local Nerves, Muscles and Organs Contributing to Chronic Lumbar and Pelvic Pain Chronic pain in the lumbar and pelvic regions remains one of the great challenges of our time. In this workshop Griet Rondel (Belgium) will offer a unique approach to this issue, both in theory and in technique. The abdominopelvic region contains a network of nerves, muscle, and organs.
When approaching pain in this area it is critical to consider the entire region as well as these individual components. Abdominal and pelvic organs utilize a sequence of muscles, primarily comprised of the psoas-quadratus-iliacus-piriformis and pelvic floor muscles, for basic support and attachment. These organs and muscles are in turn controlled by a chain of nerves that links all the structures. The goal of our work with Nerve Reflexology is to bring balance to these interconnected nerves, muscles and organs. By the end of class you will have a keen understanding of this part of the body and how to affect abdominal and pelvic nerves, muscles and organs through nerve reflexology.
In this four-day Level I workshop, Griet will share her immense knowledge of the human body and its form and function, and she will pair this information with practical techniques. She will teach you how to access very fine-tuned reflexology points to maximize effects.
In order to have sufficient knowledge of the nervous system, participants are invited to study the pre-course syllabus “The Human Nervous System” (after enrolling in this class, participants will receive an email from MNT-NR International with a login and a password, giving access to the download page for this pre-course syllabus). An extensive handout and a copy of the Powerpoint presentation will be included in this workshop.
