This one day introduction to foot reflexology will cover the fascinating roots of reflexology, what it is and how it can benefit your patients. We will discuss how this therapy helps to relax the body, restore balance/ homeostasis and help stimulate the natural healing process.

Most of this day’s course will be spent ‘hands-on’, learning how to confidently complete a reflexology treatment, mastering the techniques and in recognizing how points on the feet correspond to organs within the body.

The day will follow the Eunice Ingham method of reflexology.

Prior to the course all students will be given a copy of Reflexology – A concise guide to foot and hand massage by Rosalind Oxenford as part of the pre-course reading.
