What is Functional Reflex Therapy?
The Functional Reflex Therapy Framework for Reflexology is designed for children and adults of all ages with high levels of anxiety, intellectual difficulties, autism, special educational needs and disabilities and is an enjoyable beneficial experience for more vulnerable adults with dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease.
The holistic package of Functional Reflex Therapy offers a unique framework accessible to all. It uses a combination of relaxation techniques drawn from original theories and practices of the complementary therapy of reflexology, supported where appropriate with the easily recognizable logo and the FRT tool kit to help with communication, preparation and involvement with the session.
FRT may reduce stress, anxiety, relieve tension, help improve mood, encourage engagement, social interaction and increase receptiveness.
Tracey has received training from the founder of Functional Reflex Therapy, Lorraine Senior, to offer FRT sessions to individuals as well as share the basic techniques with parents and caregivers in a nurturing, positive touch activity workshop as a qualified FRT Reflexologist.
Group training and one to one training offered for caregivers and parents. Please contact Tracey directly to register.
