Functional Reflex Therapy
Functional Reflex Therapy, (FRT) is a framework developed by Lorraine Senior B.Ed(Hons) MAR, that offers a unique approach to relaxation.
It is designed to empower those who support and care for children and adults with special educational needs, autism and people with dementia and Alzheimer’s.
The Functional Reflex Therapy Rainbow Relaxation Routine® is shared through workshops which are available for family members and carers who support those with complex needs.
The Rainbow Relaxation Routine® incorporates working towards relaxation “in the moment” utilising objects of reference in a “tool kit” to aid communication. The routine offers those receiving the session a quiet and specific calming time. For both giver and receiver, the Functional Reflex Therapy offers an opportunity to share time and positive touch away from the daily routine of caring.
Lorraine, a reflexologist and teacher, developed FRT drawn from the complementary therapy of Reflexology and her experience as a teacher working in different environments.
Functional Reflex Therapy Rainbow Relaxation Routine® Workshops
The workshops are fun, informative and delivered in two sessions of approximately 2 hours each, normally a week or so apart. The timing of the workshops allows time for practice with the opportunity to bring any questions to the next session.
