Reflexology Course (3 day)

Reflexology is a therapy which involves using thumb and finger pressures to the feet or hands. There are points on the feet and the hands which correspond to different organs, glands, and systems of the body. These points are known as reflex points, a reflex is when stimulation at one point brings out a response in another area. The feet are thought of a mirroring the body and the organs, systems and glands can be mapped onto the feet. The left mirrors the left-hand side of the body and the right reflects the right. Reflexology is a holistic healing technique, which means the individuals mind, body and spirit is considered when giving treatment, so an in-depth consultation is very important to help establish conditions and symptoms. A reflexologist will also treat the symptoms and the cause, aiming to restore balance and homeostasis.
