Deep Heart Reflexology Courses

Deep Heart Reflexology is a blend of eastern and western reflexology techniques applied in a way that allows the free flow Qi energy to intuitively guide the reflexology session. This course is designed to give you a deeper understanding of reflexology, energy healing, and self awareness.  The importance of healing yourself first is a central theme during the class. 


In these courses, you will learn the primary foot reflexology theory, thumb, knuckle, and finger techniques, as well as how to sense the energy flow.  As you are learning the techniques, we will continuously focus on how to connect with the Source of inner healing energy, Qi, through meditation, breathing, and awareness techniques.  Deep Heart Reflexology is a living, breathing, in the moment experience.  

As a student you will learn how to develop your ability to calm your mind, relax your  body, and be in a space of peace and love while giving a session.  

A key aspect of Deep Heart Reflexology is that  you know how to properly locate, access and stimulate access each reflex point. In order to achieve the most therapeutic benefits during a reflexology session,  it is essential to know how to do this.


Most classes will include guided reflexology practice sessions on my clients who offer their time to assist the class.  The guided reflexology sessions are a highlight of the training course.  They allow the students to directly experience giving a reflexology session. 

What will be covered:


* Deep Heart Reflexology Theory
* Understanding the foot reflex chart

* Basic overview of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Eastern Medicine

* Anatomy as it relates to reflexology

* Deep Heart Reflexology thumb, finger, hand and knuckle techniques (Levels 1 &2)
* Deep Heart Reflexology wooden reflex tool techniques (Levels 2 &3)

* Advanced reflexology techniques (Level 3)

* Meditation techniques for calming the mind

* Breathing techniques to promote healing energy flow and develop Qi energy

* Awareness techniques to pay attention to energy flow and body awareness

* Importance of healing yourself first

* Connecting with your intuition
Healing with Love and Gratitude:

Healing with love and gratitude is another important aspect of Deep Heart Reflexology.  The development of love and gratitude while doing reflexology is essential for the best healing to take place.  When you feel love and gratitude deeply in your heart while giving a reflexology session allows the full benefits of reflexology to be achieved. Qualifying your Qi energy with the tone of love and gratitude is so important for healing.  Love heals everything.
Requirements - Gratitude Journal:

All students who register are required to begin a daily gratitude journal.  It is a very easy and fast way to develop love and gratitude.  Simply purchase a notebook and every night before you go to bed, write down 5 entries of things you are grateful for.  They can be very specific or general.
For example:
1.      Thank you for life
2.      Thank you for the delicious dinner I ate tonight and my wonderful friends who were with me.
3.      Thank you for this beautiful sunny day.
Five entries each day.  You can write new things each day or repeat. This gratitude journal will be used during the classes as a tool to increase the healing energy of love and gratitude.

Eric’s Way of teaching is alive in the moment
Classes are alive and in the moment and based on what is truly necessary for each student and the group dynamic.  You learn the core reflexology principles and techniques in a fluid free flow training style.  Each student is taught at their individual level and advances in class based on their ability to understand and apply the techniques and subtle energy flow.  

Feel the qi

Deep Heart Reflexology is an energy based healing system.  Development of the Qi energy is essential to giving high quality reflexology treatments.  Various energy building practices will be shared and directly experienced. Along with learning reflexology theory, foot reflex point locations, and reflexology techniques, each student will learn how to access and develop their natural inner Qi flow.


Step by step reflexology procedure and following the Qi flow

Because each reflexology session is completely different based on the person, their energy, and their condition, you will learn how to address various conditions based on what the person needs in that particular moment.  You will learn a sequential reflexology order as well as how to follow the energy conjestions and fully assist the client.
