Footwork

Footwork is an online course for health and wellness professionals, introducing an original technique that works through the feet to affect the whole person. It was developed by Avi Grinberg, who also teaches the course.

Professionals interested in a holistic approach that unifies body and mind can practice the technique on its own or use it to complement their ongoing work. It is designed to be applied flexibly and integrated into other practices, augmenting their scope and bolstering their results.

As part of Avi Grinberg’s broader methodology, based on his understanding of body attention and how we can use it to achieve better health, the Footwork technique consolidates his decades of experience focused on encouraging the body’s natural ability to recover and get well by “letting the body work”. The Footwork course provides extremely effective tools and concepts that promote physical and personal wellbeing and focus the body’s attention on healing and recovery. The Footwork technique derives from Holistic Reflexology and also draws on the conceptual framework of the Grinberg Method®.

Avi Grinberg developed the practice of Holistic Reflexology and began teaching courses on the subject in Israel and Europe starting in 1986. His book Holistic Reflexology published in 1989 by Thorsons (HarperCollins), was translated into five languages and is still used as part of the curriculum of a number of schools of Reflexology in both Europe and Israel. The work is renowned for its groundbreaking approach, introducing new concepts to the field of Reflexology such as personal analysis, original forms of touch, changes to the way a client receives treatment, modifications to the structure, and more. His next book Foot Analysis: the Footpath to Self-Discovery (1993, Samuel Weiser) expands on the subject of personal analysis through the feet, and was translated into nine languages. Footwork: a Footpath to Wellbeing (2015, eBook) is an in-depth discussion of the Footwork technique, including annotated case studies.

In developing the Grinberg Method as a complete methodology, Avi Grinberg shifted from treating people to teaching them through their bodies. In line with this change of approach towards people’s ability to affect their wellbeing and health, he also transformed Holistic Reflexology into Footwork and taught it as a 60-hour course to professionals in a wide variety of fields.

The Footwork online course is the first original product that Grinberg Method International has produced specifically for professionals in the broader field of wellness and health. Its primary aim is to offer, in a distilled and concise form, a number of essential concepts and tools developed by Avi Grinberg over his four decades  of practice. It includes basic aspects of the Grinberg Method, which up until now, have only been available to and used by qualified practitioners, teachers, and trainers of this methodology.
