The premise that all parts of the human body are connected to the feet via energy zones or pathways dates back many thousands of years. Using a series of compression movements on specific areas of the feet, the body’s innate energy is supported, stimulated, or calmed, with the intention of restoring balance, promoting well-being.

Our body has the unique ability to heal and restore itself. Reflexology encourages balance via a holistic approach taking into consideration the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

The BodySystems Method is a well-established approach to reflexology. Our approach enables you to be aware of the related anatomy and physiology you are affecting, how that body system supports and interacts with the other areas of the body and how best to support our well-being. We focus not only on physical concerns, but also the mind-body-emotional components at hand. 

We follow this systematic and logical approach while remaining heart-centered to better assist the healing process.

Becoming proficient and knowledgable, having developed a solid foundation you can then begin to customize and focus your technique, growing confident in your skill and trusting your intuition.

 

In this class you will

  • Understand the history and therapeutic principles of Reflexology
  • Learn the basic Anatomy and Physiology of the human body
  • Become proficient in the hands-on application of foot Reflexology
  • Study the body-mind-spirit connections and its importance in Reflexology
  • Understand how to best implement and develop reflexology in your life.

Roz Zollinger

Over 36 years Roz has developed an international reputation for her instruction and therapeutic work in fields of Reflexology and Aromatherapy. She qualified in Reflexology in 1983 through the South African Institute of Reflexology in Johannesburg, and in 1984 trained in Aromatherapy with the Institute of Clinical Aromatherapy in London. Subsequently, Roz pursued advanced Aromatherapy studies with the Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy, completed the International Training Program in Essential Oils at Purdue University, courses in Aromatic Medicine with Mark Webb, Gabriel Mojay, Madeleine Kerkhof, and many others.

Roz is co-founder of the Georgia Reflexology Organization and is a regional director for the National Association of Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA).

Roz Zollinger founded the BodySystems Method™ of Reflexology, a unique approach whereby the practitioner works systematically through the major systems of the body via the feet/hands. The premise of reflexology is that all parts of the body are connected to the feet via energy zones or pathways (Similar, but not the same as the acupuncture meridians) By using a series of compression, the body’s innate energy is supported and the nerve system. Over 28 years ago, Roz created her concept of Aromatic Reflexology, incorporating the use of her therapeutic essential oil synergies/blends for each body system with her work on the feet.

Lesson Structure and Approach

This course is designed to present ‘digestible’ lessons and discussion while providing ample time for supervised hands-on practice and observation.

Each weekly 3-hour class will cover a specific body system, associated topics and allow time for questions and discussion. Classes typically begin with the study of the body system, its anatomy and physiology, and then observation and practice of the hands-on techniques.

Our program provides you the necessary time in between classes to absorb, study, and practice the information from each lesson.

In providing this program since 1992 we find this lesson structure brings students the greatest success in class while balancing work and family.

As your guide and mentor in Reflexology we take pride in your success!
