Online Training: Osteopathic Reflexology

The Importance of Feet in the Fascial System Online Masterclass

Florence Cohen is the founder of the Osteopathic Reflexology Approach® and specialises in releasing fascia thoughout the entire body from the lower limbs (feet and lower legs). Many of Florence's  techniques are unique worldwide: the intraosseous fascia release techniques, the “fascial twister” unwinding techniques and the periosteum release techniques. This online masterclass  will help you to understand all the aspects of FASCIA, i.e. the tissues you touch in any manual therapy. Understand why and how FASCIA is instrumental in the development of illness and the maintenance of good health. Understand the selfregulating mechanism located in the feet and how, by interacting with fascia from the extremities, we can tap into that regulation of our health, sometimes at speeds that defy what we thought we knew was possible.
