TOUCHPOINT - Round about: The Heart - COURSE CANCELLED
21st & 22nd April 2017
Presented by Peter Lund Frandsen & Dorthe Krogsgaard
Being open to new knowledge - and wishing to use it
Touchpoint provide lectures, seminars and continuing professional development for complementary therapists.
Our main target group is experienced reflexologists.
We wish to ensure, that participants on Touchpoint seminars acquire useful new knowledge as well as having new thoughts arise. In our experience both the competition and expectations to complementary therapists are rapidly increasing. Therefore, we strive to maintain a high professional standard and we are not afraid of challenging our participants. One functions the best, whith openness to new knowledge and a desire to always improve.
Touchpoint offers a series of post graduate seminars in Denmark and abroad. In addition we convene seminars in Denmark with foreign tutors. In step with the process of globalisation, we find it important to maintain and develop international networking on all aspects of complementary therapy.
Dorthe Krogsgaard and Peter Lund Frandsen are certified tutors of Nerve Reflexology through MNT-NR International.

The heart is much more than a pump - maybe the heart should recieve more attention in your reflexology sessions?
In many cultures the heart is viewed as the very center of life. In ancient Egypt the heart of deceased was weighed in a ceremony to see if they were worthy to enter the afterlife. The Aztec would sacrifice hearts to return power to the sun. In the Bible the heart represents the innermost part of a human being, its soul or true self. The Indian Upanishads talk about the Lotus of the Heart, the inner chamber of the self, which becomes an eternal part of the universe, when the body cease to exist. " As large as the external universe, so large is the universe in the heart lotus".
These philosophical descriptions, despite their different origin, share the same deep wisdom of the heart. And excitingly, new scientific research now enables us to revive this old knowledge in a Western reference frame.
The wealth of new information inspires us to emphasize working more with the heart in all reflexology sessions.
That is why we have developed a new workshop about the heart with the following main themes:
Embryology, the heart is formed from two different cell lines, see how the heart is structured as a knot, that can be "untied".
Heart anatomy and physiology - about two million heartbeats of a lifetime.
The Vagus nerve is mostly an afferent (sensory) connection to the heart, how can we interpret this new finding?
- The Heart as a hormonal gland.
- The hearts influence on stress, how can we stimulate it in a positive way?
- Heart diseases and what we can do.
- The heart creates our strongest magnetic field, 5000 times stronger than the brain's, what does that mean?
- The relationship of the heart to other organs during reflexology.
- Techniques to relax the fascia around the heart.
- The heart's connection to the diaphragm and psoas muscle.
- New reflexology techniques for the heart.
This workshop will give you a completely new view of the heart.
