Reflexology is a system of working reflexes in the feet and hands which correspond to every organ and gland in the body. It is used to bring about a deep level of relaxation and it is of particular benefit in dealing with congestion.
This course teaches the location of individual reflexes on each foot and methods of pin-pointing certain reflexes for specific conditions.
The theory component includes Anatomy & Physiology, Professional Conduct & Business Awareness and First Aid.
