Reflexology

Your route to professional practice

About Reflexology

Reflexology is the practice of applying pressure to the feet and hands utilizing specific thumb, finger and hand techniques without the use of oil, cream or lotion.

Basis of treatment

The treatment is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands with a premise that such work effects a physical change in the body.

Benefits of training

Reflexology is a rewarding career, especially for those who would like flexible working hours on a self-employed basis. Most therapists work from home, rent a treatment room or provide mobile services.
