Course Description

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 wellbeing and for preventing illness as it may be for relieving symptoms of stress, injury and illness.

Reflexology is based on a very old form of therapy.  It is believed that the Chinese practised reflexology as long as 6,000 years ago and the process is even depicted in carvings within the tombs of ancient Egypt.

This programme guides you through the complete process of reflexology, explaining its function, uses and application. Detailed diagrams are provided to assist you in understanding its applications. The course is designed for anyone wishing to practice this healing art.  It also explains how you might go about setting up your own business as a reflexologist.

Each module is followed by a set of activities and questions to enable you to demonstrate your knowledge of the subjects covered in that module.
