COURSE DESCRIPTIONS: ADJUNCT THERAPIES
Reflexology is an entire system of analysis and treatment devoted to the hands and feet. By stimulating specific reflex points, the functioning of the corresponding organs, connective tissue, bony structure, body systems, and energy pathways are beneficially affected. Our instruction integrates this system with Polarity Therapy and Chakra Balancing, making Reflexology a much more dynamic and effective modality and offering students another integration of modalities.
Homeopathy is the second most widely used system of medicine in the world. Homeopathy, from Greek homoeo (meaning similar) and pathos (meaning suffering), is a system of medicine based on treating like with like. The same principle is widespread in mainstream medicine, the most notable examples being antidotes and vaccines. Homeopathy addresses the cause, not the symptoms. The theory that like can be treated with like can be traced back as far Hypocrites (468377 BC), but it wasn't until the work of Samuel Hahnemann (17551843) that the theory developed into a usable practice. In this part of the course students will explore the history and use of the organic medicine of Classical Homeopathy. Specific remedies will be discussed for various pathologies of disease within the BodyMind in order for students to have a better understanding of the onset and treatment of dis-ease with this healing medicine.
