Sarafijn Practitioner

Sarafijn Basic Technique (SBT)

Touch is a language that the body recognises immediately. The Sarafijn Practitioner training teaches you to actually train the inner sense of security of your participant through touch, enabling effective processing and regeneration.

The Sarafijn Practitioner course trains reflexologists, body therapists, masseurs, CAM practitioners and anyone with coaching or therapist training who wishes to work physically, in feeling physical tension at the level of the skin through touch. The practitioner's heart coherence field invites the participant's tension field to move, by means of targeted touches that support the feeling of safety. In this way, the information present in the patient on a physical, mental, emotional, social and metaphysical level can be released in all safety and be gently processed.

The training consists of the 2-day training Sarafijn Basic Technique, giving and receiving an individual session on a test subject by a recognised Sarafijn Practitioner teacher. Upon successful completion of the last session you will receive your Sarafijn Practitioner certificate and be listed on the website.

Online training is possible and consists of

  • Online teachings on the theory and intuition behind the different holds, grips and projections

  • 1 Online meeting by Zoom to enlarge the embodiment experience of the practitioner

  • 1 Online meeting by Zoom on exchanging experience and to cover the questions

  • 1 Online meeting on an individual basis to fine tune the technique. You need to have a model to work on and some one who assists you in filming your moves. You will be assisted online by Heinrike Bergmans in what you sense and how you performe the SBT.

"Great things never came from comfort zones"

For whom?

For CAM-practitioners, body workers and professionals who want to integrate inner security through touch into their treatment. Previous knowledge of reflexology is not required but is a plus.


The Sarafijn Practitioner (SP) was developed from the basic principles of foot reflexology, the knowledge of energetic systems, the effect of heart coherence and the biology of stress, trauma and stimulus processing.
