Reflexology is an Alternative Medicine involving application of pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques. It is based on a system of Zones (Energy Channels) and areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands. Stimulating these areas will help detoxify the body, improve the circulation and nerve conduction to organs and structures within the body.
Reflexology helps the body ultimately reduce stress and it provides deep relaxation to the recipient. Reflexology is a beneficial Complementary Therapy for relieving conditions such as Migraine, IBS (irritable Bowel Syndrome), Back, Neck, Hip and Shoulder Pain, Insomnia, Tinnitus and general Stress Related Illnesses. It is estimated that over 70% of doctor appointments are for stress related illnesses, which could be relieved by Reflexology, as opposed to medications such as prescription drugs.
At One Day Courses we offer a fantastic Basic Foot Reflexology Course, which will enable you to treat friends and family or go on to do other One Day Courses with us, or learn a new career in this valuable effective therapy.
We will teach you 12 different Reflex Points on the feet, which will give you an opportunity to give a safe enjoyable Reflexology Session. Our teachers are seasoned therapists as well as experienced instructors of the Level 3 diploma in Reflexology. After getting to know your fellow classmates, the morning will be spent on an introduction to Reflexology, how it works and its benefits.
You will be guided on who you may not treat or how to treat certain people who have medical conditions, where you must treat them with caution. After a tea-break, a thorough demonstration of a Reflexology Session will be shown and then you will have an opportunity to practice on each other with careful guidance from your teacher.
