This seminar explores the physiology of the brain and its link to bodily functions, symptoms and illnesses. Jong will also explain and demonstrate how to locate the various scalp reflex areas including sensory, motor, balance, digestive and reproductive areas.
A range of stimulation and treatment methods with be demonstrated and case studies will be discussed. There will be numerous supervised practice sessions. The event is a balanced mix of theory and practice. Valuable skills and techniques learnt at this event can confidently be put straight into practice.
