We live in a fast paced, fast track society where we are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, so it isn’t any wonder that we find life increasingly stressful, but when stress becomes painful, pain can become stressful. In this one day workshop for reflexologists we look at the links between stress, inflammation and pain.
Find out how stress can increase pain, why cortisol may not be the friend it's meant to be and how reflexology can have a positive impact on lowering heart rate. Proven effective based on my 8 years of research at Portsmouth University.
You will gain an understanding of:
Stress - the good, the bad and the inflammatory
Cortisol - friend or foe?
Stress induced analgesia/hyperalgesia
Vagal activity - interacting with the brain
Psycho-neuro-immunological events - what are they?
Practical skills for stress induced hyperalgesia
To ensure you can fully appreciate the work you are doing and to provide you with the understanding you will need as a practitioner to speak with clients on the subject of 'Stress Pain and the Brain', this workshop is 50% theory and 50% practical
Certificate of Attendance’ is awarded on completion of this workshop.
