Reflexology is one of the most effective and powerful therapies.
The human body is a fascinating system, which, left without interference, tends always towards perfect health and rejuvenation.
Reflexology assists the process of natural healing,removing blockages and increasing the flow of energy and blood circulation in the whole body.
A reflexologist needs to be sensitive, and have a natural feeling for hands-on therapy and bodywork. He or she must also be well-taught, using a very specific technique.
The Practical Reflexology Classes
The practical aspect of the course covers how to give a reflexology treatment in sequence, introducing all the reflex points on the feet. Students also learn reflexology technique as applied to specific areas of the feet for the healing of conditions such as asthma, psoriasis, headaches, constipation, and others.
The practical classes take place over nine Saturdays. The course also offers clear and extensive video lessons to support the student in practising the techniques covered during the classes.
The Theory of Reflexology
The theory aspect of the course is unique in that we look at all aspects of the restoration of health, including the emotional and lifestyle related aspects of recovery.
Symptoms often manifest as a result of imbalance on both the spiritual and physical levels. Dietary habits, which are not conducive to health, are often linked to these imbalances. Alongside reflexology theory and anatomy and physiology, nutrition is a major component of the course, as are the principles and practice of natural healing.
This course is also unique in that it covers in-depth the mind-body connection and how it relates to reflexology. This component allows graduates to explore the psychological and spiritual causes of symptoms with their patients, adding a new depth to the practice of reflexology.
