In this very important paragraph, Hippocrates provides simple guidelines on the application of all manual techniques, thumb walking definitely included. This paragraph accurately answers these questions every time

“How much pressure should I use?”

“For how long should I press?”

Hippocrates was a Greek physician who lived around the 5th century BC and is considered the Father of Western medicine, maybe you have heard about the Hippocratic Oath that is still, to this day, taken by doctors. Many massage books, and quite a few Reflexology books, mention Hippocrates in the history chapter, as the earliest patron of hands on therapy, which is absolutely correct. Mostly these books do not cover the application of touch, this important information is offered in one small paragraph from the book The Physician’s office.

During this webinar (duration 60 minutes) we will analyse this concisely comprehensive and wonderful paragraph because it answers the above eternal questions. We will travel in time from 5th century to today; we will not only see what later famous physicians had to say but what is today’s current research in manual therapy and touch tells us.

By using examples of common everyday lived experiences, the participants will relate to this paragraph immediately and upon completion will be in a position to transform theory into practice for both reflexology and massage.
