Reflexology is an ancient form of holistic treatment, with a long history encompassing Ancient Egypt, Japan, China and India. It is a science which deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. A reflexology treatment involves deep pressure massage on the soles of the feet, which stimulate the nerves in the feet and influences the whole body. Stimulating these reflexes properly can help many health problems in a natural way, a type of preventative maintenance. As well as being deeply relaxing, it also improves the circulation and encourages the elimination of toxins and waste products. Reflexology like many other complementary therapies has increased in popularity over the past few years, and has now gained respect as an important, safe and natural healing art.

Training in Reflexology can lead to a wonderful new career. As a practitioner of Reflexology you will be able to work in hospitals, nursing homes, hospices, sports centres, gyms, natural health centres or even on luxury cruise liners! Alternatively, you may choose to branch out independently by working from home or visiting clients in their own homes. With almost 2 million people visiting a reflexologist in the UK each year, opportunities for well qualified, skilled reflexologists are opening up at a rapid rate, and although the traditional route of self employment is still favoured by most, more and more reflexologists are finding part and full-time employment within clinics or corporations.

During your course you will become proficient in Reflexology and will be equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to set up in practice following qualification.
