Reflexology Therapy

Reflexology is both an art and a therapy, which uses specific massage techniques of the feet which then produce physical reactions in targeted areas of the body. Reflex areas in the feet uniquely correspond to regions, glands, and organs of the body, as detailed in reflexology charts. Reflexology has its roots in both ancient Egypt and China but was developed in the Western world by two Americans in the early 1900s.

By using prescribed massage techniques, the stimulation of the reflex points of the foot will affect change in a corresponding area of the body, encouraging the body to calmly soothe, heal, and relieve problems in various organs and tissues. Reflexology is often used to reduce stress and maintain health. It can successfully treat many ailments, such as arthritis, insomnia, headaches, fertility, digestive disorders, and back pain.

The knowledge of the pressure sensitive areas of the foot will be acquired through reflexology coursework, along with anatomy and physiology. Students will also understand the philosophy and techniques of this alternative form of treatment, from interviewing the individual to planning an integrated session plan.
