Course overview

Reflexology is an extremely effective therapy based on the principle that reflex points on the feet correspond to each organ and structure in the body and are linked to those organs by energy channels. 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.
