Reflexology (ITEC)

foot masage

Diploma in Reflexology (including Anatomy & Physiology) 

Students are taken through the history and philosophy of this ancient therapy.  Working with this gentle non-invasice holistic therapy, we will learn about the reflex zones and the related reflex areas as well as common disorders and ways in which to treat them.  The feet are regarded as a map or a mirror of the person and their body.When we accumulate stress in our bodies, illness is more likely to occur. By treating the whole person with reflexology, Mind Body and Spirit, we can induce a deep state of relaxation and therefore facilitate the body’s own healing processes to flow.  Reflexology can be a wonderful way to de stress, relax and may be regarded as a positive step towards a healthier lifestyle.
