New Foot Reflexology Series with Marc Zollicoffer

The ABMP Education Center now features the Foot Reflexology Series with Marc Zollicoffer. The continuing education courses provide video demonstrations of hands-on massage techniques, and ABMP members can earn free CE hours by watching the webinars and completing a quiz.
 
The courses are available in the ABMP Education Center, and the descriptions are:
 
Foot Reflexology 1 & 2: Benefits, Philosophy, and the 34 Points: Our feet hold great healing power—a secret that ancient civilizations have known and practiced for centuries. This dynamic webinar introduces you to the benefits and philosophy of foot reflexology and highlights how the modality works with both the physical and energetic bodies. Review the anatomy of the foot—including the fascia, bony landmarks, and muscles—before following along on your own feet as the instructor teaches each of the 34 foot reflexology points in order, covering the physical location of, and technique used on, each point. This course is the first in a pairing of two webinars.
 
Foot Reflexology 3: Hands-On Techniques: Build on the knowledge from the “Foot Reflexology 1 & 2: Benefits, Philosophy, and the 34 Points” webinar as you begin to work with clients’ feet. Learn along with the instructor as he teaches how to locate the reflexology points on a client’s feet, the proper technique to stimulate each foot reflexology point, and the correct order to work the points. You’ll also learn rituals and techniques to enhance the session. After this webinar, you’ll be ready to incorporate foot reflexology techniques into any session! This course is the second in a pairing of two webinars.
