Reflex Resonance Technique
Helen Mary Perkins
The Reflex Resonance Technique™ is an original and unique reflexology concept developed solely by Helen Mary Perkins.
Parts 1: sets the scene for reflexologists to enhance their understanding of intuition in relation to reflex holding points, to learn about application of colour, crystals and with an introduction to sound. Learning to develop intuition to a level where skill and sensitive fingers can better interpret the feel and vibration of each reflex point, incorporating the appropriate sound where necessary to enhance the effect. This easily transfers to the reflexologist’s own routine.
Part 2: After using and refining their intuitive skills, reflexologists can move to the next stage an intensive and advanced workshop exploring the vibrational quality within and around the body for further study. Sound is carried by vibration to the part of the body in need of healing and can bring profound emotional, physical and spiritual benefits. In chronic cases especially, where there has been little or no change to an existing problem, the use of sound has been shown to support relief and recovery.
Part 3 is for the assessment of learning and application from Parts 1 and 2. These candidates will have also completed case studies and an assignment in their own time before attending.
Successful completion of Part 3; enables candidates to be awarded a certificate. Training manuals and certificates of attendance accompany each part. This fun and rewarding course will add a new dimension to any reflexology practitioner, adding value and enhancing the client experience.
