Therapeutic Reflexology to Relieve Headache and Back Pain
Pain is the number one reason for seeking bodywork. At least 78% of the adult population will experience a tension headache at some point during their lives. Reflexology is clinically proven to relieve pain, including the nagging pain headaches cause. Learn how reflexology provides quick, precise, detailed assessments to identify causes of pain in the head, neck, shoulders, and back. View and learn reflexology techniques to ease discomfort and pain, either as reflexology alone or along with massage and other allied practices.
- World Massage Conference is actively promoting the event, which is open to massage therapists, reflexologists, and healthcare providers around the world. Participants pay a nominal conference registration fee, which grants access to Stone’s seminar and continuing education (CE) units.
- Wounded Warrior Project will receive a donation (a percentage of conference registration fees) from participants who enroll through a special code. Participants can log on from anywhere in the world. Foot reflexology techniques relieve pain, making it a perfect transportable skill to any environment, population, and health challenge. Ms. Stone is seeking partners to make the conference a success for Wounded Warrior Project. For information, email Ms. Stone at WWP@TheStoneInstitute.Org or call (636) 724-8686.
