General Public Workshops

FRT – Functional Reflex Therapy Workshop 

Functional Reflex Therapy (FRT) was developed by my friend and mentor, Award winning Reflexology Therapist and Special Ed teacher Lorraine Senior of the UK. After several years delivering reflexology as a timetabled therapy in the education system, she was encouraged with the results of her success and research to create Functional Reflex Therapy in 2012. Please refer to my video with Lorraine Senior on her first visit to Canada as she discusses her special framework in detail with me here.

FRT is a combination of relaxation techniques drawn from reflexology. It is designed to empower those who support children and adults with autism spectrum disorders, learning difficulties and complex needs with the skills to deliver a short repetitive relaxation routine that can be undertaken at a time convenient to you. The package is unique as it encourages those giving the session to use objects of reference, symbols and photographs that may help promote communication.

Who Is It For

Parents, caregivers and family members supporting children and adults with high levels of anxiety and stress, special educational needs and disabilities, autistic spectrum disorders, and complex needs, mental health conditions, Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Why Use FRT

Receiving FRT regularly may encourage the release of the happy chemicals throughout the body which may:

  • induce relaxation   
  • help improve mood
  • reduce anxiety
  • support wellbeing
  • encourage the receiver to be more receptive
  • encourage social interaction
  • have a positive effect on the issues that affect individuals and people around them in many areas of their everyday lives. 

How can I learn the FRT routine

Workshops are available to enable you to learn to use and apply the FRT routine.  These workshops are delivered by myself a former special ed teacher, a fully qualified and registered reflexology therapist with RAC, who has completed the FRT training course for therapists.

About the FRT Workshop

The FRT workshop is intended to be friendly, fun and informative.   It teaches routines to be applied to the hand and foot. The FRT framework takes place over two 3-hr sessions that are held over a weekend at a local venue or online. You will be provided with handouts to support the skills you learn, or with a PDF file to download and print.

Please note that the certification of participation DOES NOT give you a qualification. FRT respectfully asks that you do not try to TEACH others. ONLY qualified FRT reflexology therapists can do this.

Meditative ART for Spiritual Connection

People create art for many various reasons.  For the shear pleasure and enjoyment, to play and have fun, to relax, to express themselves to create beauty and meaning, to make money, or because they have a passion to create among other reasons. But did you know that diving into art and the creative process can also  be used very effectively as a form of meditation and psycho spiritual practice?

Why take this workshop?

People now more than ever are going through great changes. Many of us are reawakening and are needing to live in a place of greater authenticity and a more wholehearted connection with what we consider to be sacred.  It is addressed by many names, Spirit, Universe, God, Guides, Source, Angels, Heaven, the next Realm etc.

What will I gain from this course?

Meditative Art for Spiritual Connection does not focus on technique, various mixed media styles, or the end result and look of what you have created. It uses fluid painting style and guided meditation as its medium to  connect to a regular spiritual practice. The purpose of a creative spiritual practice, is to simply remind you that you are always connected to and a part of something greater than your physical body.  

It is a meditative and creative process that enables you to develop your intuition and flex your spiritual muscles.You will learn to associate yourself as a creator in your own right that co-creates for their internal world as opposed to the external world.  It is created from a place of child-like innocence, where things don’t need to make sense; they can flow  beautifully and naturally and unfold into the mystery of what is. You don’t need to create a masterpiece, you are the masterpiece. 

About the Workshop

Meditative Art for Spiritual Connection is a 6 hour live course presently offered online via ZOOM spread over the course of one week on 2 weekday mornings from 9am to 12pm.   

  • You will be provided with a PDF file with Guided Meditations to use and resources.
