Reflexology Practitioner Course
What is Reflexology
Reflexology is an extremely effective form of foot massage based on the principle that 'reflex points' on the hands and feet illnesses, are indicated by tender areas on the appropriate reflex points on the feet, reflecting imbalance of the affected organ or organs.
By applying reflexology foot massage techniques to these points, the body can be prompted to maximise its own great capacity both to heal itself and to prevent illness.
All reflex points corresponds to each organ and structure in the body and are linked to those organs by energy channels, zones or meridians.
When illness or imbalance occurs in the body, the corresponding energy channels become blocked and Reflexology Massage is aimed to destroy these blocks, allowing the energy to flow freely again, so restoring the body's natural balance, and hence - good health.
Reflexologists regard the feet as a mirror of the body, with the right foot representing the right-hand side of the body and the left foot the left-hand side.
