Do you want to gain the skills necessary to provide reflexology treatments for relaxation and stress release? Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy methods of relieving pain within the body based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears, correspond with different areas of the body.

Reflexology is a method of relieving pain within the body by stimulating certain pressure points on the feet and hands. This controlled pressure may ease the source of the pain. In the absence of any particular abnormality, reflexology may also be as effective for promoting good health and well being and for preventing illness as it may be for relieving symptoms of stress, injury and illness.

Reflexologists work holistically with their clients and aim to work alongside allopathic healthcare to promote better health for their clients. Reflexology is based on a very old form of therapy.
