Four-Day Reflexology Diploma
Reflexology is an ancient concept, and it is believed that the Chinese developed the technique thousands of years ago.
Reflexology works by stimulating the body’s own healing mechanisms in order to restore balance and a feeling of wellbeing.
Based on the principle that the feet are a map of the entire body, when the reflex points in the feet are stimulated, the therapist is treating the whole body not just the foot. This Modern reflexology offers tremendous health benefits; it can help reduce stress, improve circulation, cleanse the body of toxins and raise energy levels..
