Instructor:  Leslie Rosales –Certified Acupuncturist, Reflexologist and Herbalist
During this class; doulas,  nurses, midwives, childbirth educators  and massage therapists and other birth workers will learn Reflexology for Pregnancy and Labor. Reflexology, an ancient form of healing, teaches that specific regions of the body called reflex zones (points in the feet, hands, and ears) are associated with particular organs, glands, and other parts of the body. During a typical labor reflexology session, pressure is applied to specific points on a woman’s feet and hands to stimulate the pituitary gland and to induce the hormones known to speed labor and ease pain. A reflexology treatment comes in the form of applied pressure to find these deposits and blockages and break up patterns of stress, restoring balance and relieving tension. You will receive a certificate that you are certified to perform reflexology for your pregnant clients. There will be classroom instruction, demo, return demo and lots of fun and information that you can use. Please bring 2 pillows and wear comfortable clothes. Light snacks will be provided.
