This 1-day workshop is a shorter version of my usual ‘Introduction to Reflexology’ course. After a brief introduction to history and principles of reflexology you will be invited and guided into the healing world of touch using reflexology techniques.

The focus of this workshop will be on inducing deep relaxation and grounding as well as releasing tensions from the body and mind using special reflexology techniques.

We will work in a small group which will allow a very safe and nourishing athmosphere. The workshop will take place at Ruskin Apothecary which provides very cozy and beautiful environment.

The day will run from 10am until 4pm with 1 hour lunch brake. (Lunch not provided. Ruskin Mill organic cafe is in a very close proximity or you could bring a packed lunch, there is also number of cafes in Nailsworth town which is approx. 10 min walk)
