On this site you will have opportunity to find out about Rittenhouse Reflexology Seminars (RRS). We offer accredited on-line Reflexology courses without time constraints. Our courses teach a specialized form of Reflexology called blended or clinical Reflexology. Students are taught how to blend therapeutic Reflexology with herbal medicine. Being an accredited institute, graduating students will also qualify to become Board Certified Reflexologist (click on the banner below).

Massaging FootRRS is able to offer Reflexology courses at a distance by utilizing multi-media technology... like having the instructor in person. The instructor, Dr. Fred Rittenhouse, N.D., has been a Certified Reflexologist since 1983. Because the classes are designed to qualify the student as a Certified Reflexologist, students learn this therapy for a variety of reasons. Some want to be in-home Reflexologist to help their families, friends, or themselves to maintain or enhance good health. It is an excellent therapy for self treatment, just a few minuets a day. Other students desire to start their own Reflexology business (practice), full or part time, to supplement the family income.

RRS is committed to insuring your successful completion of course requirements and leading to Reflexology Certification. RRS has in place an indepenentent testing system that will give Certificant Status to the Reflexology student. While RRS requirements for Reflexology Certification are 250 hours, 140 of these hours are spent through hands on experience and training. This is accomplished by practice sessions and videotaping. By viewing the Online Training page, and the course catalogs, you will be able to learn more about our programs for Reflexology training.

Also on this website you will find information about Dr. Fred Rittenhouse’s new book, “Reflexology, the Safe Alternative,” which is a 296 page how-to book filled with easy to follow foot charts and diagrams. In his book, he describes clearly and easily how to perform Reflexology on yourself and others.  Click here to go to the page where more information is available about this book, and how to order the book online securely and easily.

Two Bare FeetReflexology (Zoneology) Theory

What makes it work?

Reflexology, also called Zoneology, both of the hands and feet, is an ancient discipline that has been modernized by early pioneers like Dr. Fitzgerald and others. Reflexotherapy is recognized as holistic medicine because it will help the body in the healing process without prescription drugs to poison the body into health. The mechanism behind what makes Reflexology work has been explained by different theories. It is a system of healing through the application of constant thumb and finger pressure properly administered to the different reflex points. Thousands of these bio-electrical nerve endings are found in both the feet and hands.

REFLEXOLOGY IS ABOUT ENERGY

It is the same transmission source for the meridians of acupuncture and acupressure.

But a core level explanation is about energy. All matter consists of energy, and the human body is a good example of this. Reflexology compression and manipulation of nerve endings in the feet and hands, stimulates nerve or electrical energy to the organs and musculature of the body. It dose so through ten energy zones that run longitudinally throughout the body. These are the energy fields that Reflexology mediates through and the central nervous system is the transmission center. It is the same transmission source for the meridians of acupuncture and acupressure.  Reflexology, therefore, initiates energy or nerve flows throughout the different electrical energy zones.

When a crystal-like substance accumulates on nerve endings in the feet and hands, the process will lead to compromised nerve flow through one or more of the energy zones. In a sense, it causes a short circuit in the energy system. Reflexology compression is understood to reconnect or open nerve pathway to recipient organs and muscles within the particular zones.

This energy response is made possible by the process of facilitation. (Reflexology causes a signal to be sent to the brain, and a message is relayed back which will activate the energy zones.) All body structures within the affected zones are then innervated (supplied) with electrical energy. Remember that the human body, like mass, consists of energy and is required for homeostasis (balanced body chemistry and general functioning) and the health of all body tissues. When the body cells are returned to their normal frequency output, the tissue integrity is improved. In other words, human cells oscillate or vibrate at different frequencies and this must be maintained for the health of the cells.

THE HOW AND WHY OF REFLEXOLOGY

Consequently, through the use of Reflexotherapy a mind-body connection is made. Sensitive pressure points when stimulated create a reflex activity in a corresponding part of the body. The end result is to unblock congested nerve pathways that lead to increased nerve response and blood circulation. This pressure therapy then initiates a mode of self-healing; pain control, strengthened immune system, and reduced stress and tension that can lead to many modern medical problems. It is not uncommon for clients to report increased energy and clearer thinking as part of the health experience.

Reflexology is considered by many to be specific therapy for musculoskeletal (muscles and joints) pain and spasms of the neck and back; hip, pelvis, shoulder, arm, leg, foot, and for headache pain. Because of the physiological (body function) connection between the body, mind, and the bio-electrical reflexes on your feet, Reflexology is considered by many to be powerful “energy medicine” for the many maladies of modern living.

THE “NOT” OF REFLEXOLOGY

One common misunderstanding is to confuse Reflexology with Massage. It is important to remember that professional Reflexology is not massage in the traditional sense, and that the practitioner should be a Certified Reflexologist. Knowledge of correct techniques: compression and manipulation of the reflex points (not the muscles of the foot) is crucial for desired effects. In our courses, we explain the difference between these two powerful therapies.

In conclusion; Reflexology, Massage, Acupuncture, and Acupressure all deserve a place in the health community. Yet, some important advantages of Reflexology include:

· Being a therapy easy to learn

· Fast and effective for self-treatment

· Health benefits for family and friends

Many have experienced relief after years of suffering with different health issues, and this from Reflexology treatments given just minutes a day (this generally involves a series of treatments). Imagine by simple pressure applied to a specific point on the foot, and your health can be improved and a sense of well being attained. These benefits can be achieved by learning Reflexology for self-treatment or professionally.
