Reflexology involves stimulating the reflex points on the feet and hands to produce their distant effects on the body.
With its roots in traditional medicine and evidence dating back to Egypt, 3000 years BC, Reflexology has evolved into a modern, systemised form of treatment which not only combines the reflex points on the feet but also includes "Zone Therapy" which divides each foot into 5 zones.
Reflexology treatment is carried out with the client comfortably clothed making the treatment specific but not invasive.
Our Reflexology courses are taught by professional and practising Reflexologists who are all trained above the taught level and who are passionate about the subject. Each Reflexology course lecturer will impart a wealth of information from their own clinical practice as well as using accelerated training methods and NLP techniques to facilitate your learning of this subject.
