台灣首次舉辦 「2017ICR國際反射學學術研討年會」登陸台東

台灣腳底按摩之父現身說法
親自正名「別再說腳底按摩」

區域反射療法(英語:Reflexology,或英語:zone therapy),是源起於美國的替代療法。它的理論認為,人類的足部及手部的特定區域,都對應到特定的身體器官。因此只要對特定區域進行適當的刺激,就可以達到治療效果,相關的理論與中國古代醫學對於經絡的描述與作用,頗有對應之處。

在2016年的奧運及2017台北世大運舉辦期間,也能見到各國運動員嘗試相關的療法,許多國際媒體也爭相報導。除了在坊間蔚為風潮,反射學也已是許多國際學術研討會的熱門主題,瑞士已於2015年認可相關學術研究及學位,政府也撥款支持相關的研究。創立於多倫多的「國際反射學學術研討會」為了讓全世界研究反射療法的專家能夠定時交流,因而成立了「ICR國際反射學學術研討年會」,為全球相關領域的專家及研究機構提供一個全世界最完整的反射療法研究的交流平台。

2015年的ICR年會中,經由吳若石神父的努力遊說,台灣首次成功申辦「ICR國際反射學學術研討年會」於2017年10月19日至22日在台東市舉辦。此次的會議也得到台東縣政府、衛生福利部、經濟部國貿局及外交部的大力支持與協助。除了以往關係密切之南美洲、非洲、歐洲各國反射健康法相關人員將旅行到台灣參與盛會,也邀請台灣相關領域專業者一同交流。台東縣長夫人 陳怜燕女士蒞臨會場,並表示希望透過此次難得的機會,幫助台灣業界在專業上擁有更遼闊的視野,也有機會讓更多人了解區域反射療法的好處。

此次來自歐美日等國的專業學者,更將於會中展示反射療法的創新運用與操作研究,當中不乏諸多國內關注的族群及健康議題。例如透過反射療法協助更年期女性在更年期前後,從生理及心理層面去平衡並自我修復荷爾蒙改變所帶來的心靈壓力。抑或是不同程度學習障礙的孩童,透過足部反射健康法使身體自我調整,並在過程中融入心理輔導的思維,有效的協助障礙生減輕壓力並適應學習環境。

101602促成此次國際會議首次落地台灣的吳若石神父也親自出席記者會。身為國際足部反射療法先驅,同時也是台灣反射學最重要推廣者,特別於會中分享自己近40年來在台灣以及歐美推廣的心路歷程。對於國人長期將反射療法與一般按摩混為一談,他也期許透過此次國際研討會讓國人更加了解反射學療法的專業性及學術性,並讓真正有效且完整的反射療法能在台灣被重視。


愈痛愈有效? 國際足部反射療法先驅吳神父 親撰新書助國人破除迷思

吳神父也在會前記者會現場分享他首次親自參與撰寫的最新著作,重新辯證許多長期以來台灣人對足部反射療法錯誤的迷思,例如「不是愈痛就愈有效」且在操作過程中,不會讓施作者產生任何職業傷害。吳神父並現場教授簡單的辯證秘訣,簡單判斷所進行的反射療法效性及適性,也同時傳授簡易的冬季保健方法,協助國人透過足部反射療法,讓自己與家人有個健康的冬季。
