Reflexology Training Course
Reflexology stimulates the reflex points on the feet and hands to produce effects on the organs and other parts of the client's body.
There is some evidence dating back to 3000BC that a similar system was used in Egyptian medicine. Modern Reflexology has its roots in science and has become a systemised form of treatment. It combines the reflex points on the feet and hands
The treatment is carried out with the client clothed making the treatment non-invasive.
