Course content:

Day 1 - theory

Reflexologists will benefit from this course by gaining a deeper understanding of the way emotional aspects and personalities are reflected on their clients’ feet.  This knowledge can be used in a therapeutic way by those with counselling skills or can be used to interest potential clients into learning more about what their feet can tell them in terms of health or emotional issues. 

The day will be very intense yet fun. The aim of the day is to give techniques to allow the attendee to be able to read emotions and personality from the feet.  The theory given will allow them to extrapolate and arrive at an answer even when they are presented with something they haven’t seen before. The day will be spent covering

  • How do you feel about your feet?
  • Size, width and length of the feet
  • The line from little toe to big toe
  • Individual meanings of the toes and the way this can be applied to the vertical zones
  • Colour of the skin
  • Gaps between toes
  • Webbed toes
  • Bunions
  • The temperature of the feet 
  • Skin and related imbalances
  • Nails and related imbalances
  • Meanings of toe shapes
  • The sequence of a treatment
  • How to handle a tearful reaction
  • Applying the knowledge learned by giving a foot reading

If there is a particular query about something they have seen on a foot, attendees are asked to bring a good, clear photograph of about A4 size to share with the group.

Day 2: practice

Day two is when you are able to practice your new found knowledge in a supportive environment with an experienced foot reader on hand to answer any questions that arise from the readings. 

As we can’t anticipate what “feet” will show up on the day, a selection of slides have been prepared just in case we don’t have the variety required, however, after five years of running this course we’ve only had to use the slides of tattoo-ed feet!

The day will begin with an exercise to explain foot reading (to act as a refresher), and an exercise to gain new business, and then the rest of the day will be spent reading each other’s feet and reporting back to the group the surprise findings.  Please bring your notes to refer to. This is your opportunity to practice and improve your skills.

If there is a particular query about something you have seen on a foot, attendees are asked to bring a good, clear photograph of about A4 size to share with the group.

The workshop has rather an unusual side-effect.  You will be reading each other’s feet and swapping partners throughout the day.  There’ll be feedback about how to deliver information, how to release emotional blockages and general coaching skills.  Consequently, each reading you receive will, (as well as giving you ideas about how to do the foot readings effectively,) be sending you on your own personal journey of discovery.  People look very different at the end of the day – more present and more vital.

Jane’s books and cards will be available for purchase on the day.

Course tutor: Jane Sheehan

Jane Sheehan is the UK’s leading foot reader – she reads personality traits in the shape and form of feet and toes.  Jane qualified as a reflexologist in 1999 and first became interested in foot reading after a reflexology session had a profound impact on her, and she decided to find out more about the link between feet and wellbeing.  

Jane developed her foot reading skills through a combination of experience and learning from specialist sources.  After four years of practising reflexology and foot reading in her spare time, Jane left her nine-to-five office job and embarked on a career centred on her foot reading skills
