Welcome to the Foot Tapping Reflexology (FTR™) website
"Taking reflexology to another level"
NEW FTR WORKSHOPS IN MARCH & APRIL 2017 NOW AVAILABLE click here
Reflexology has progressed in the 22 years that I have been a reflexologist, but I feel that its full potential is not being reached. Reflexology is much more than a foot massage, it is a healing technique and an art form that “creates wellness”.
After studying other energy therapies, it became obvious that reflexology can be more effective than it currently is using traditional methods. By utilizing different aspects of other energy therapies and applying those to reflexology can dramatically increase its effectiveness.
It’s known that up to 80% of illness can be linked directly or indirectly to stress caused by emotional issues. Whilst normal reflexology is excellent for reducing stress through relaxation, what it cannot do is remove the emotional charge that is actually causing it. By using techniques from other energy therapies, we now can alleviate or significantly reduce the cause of the problem with FTR™.
I have spent several years researching and experimenting with FTR™ before its launch in 2012.
Since then over a hundred reflexologists have been trained in this remarkable new technique.
It is my aim that many more reflexologists can be trained nationally and worldwide to be able to give a much more effective treatment to improve the wellbeing of their clients.
FTR™ is currently being trialed at St. George's Hospital in London with amazing results so far in pain management for patients undergoing chemotherapy. This is an exciting development and I look forward to sharing the more in depth results with you soon.
FTR™ is now taking reflexology to another level. I hope that one day this level will be the standard.
To utilize its potential and make that happen, I have been persuaded by therapists and reflexology organizations to set up the “Academy of Foot Tapping Reflexology”. This is to be able to maintain standards and issue a recognized qualification in FTR™.
Therapists undergoing the full FTR training and passing the assessment can then be registered as a FTR™ practitioner and use the letters "AFTR".
The full training involves the current FTR™ workshop (FTR ™1), followed by the FTR™2 workshop which concentrates fully on the emotional aspects. After which, reflexologists can take the optional assessment to become registered AFTR members.
