Reflexology Supporting Mental Health Wellbeing

Reflexology Supporting Mental Health Wellbeing

5 cpd points

Mental health has never been discussed as much as it has in recent years. Now is the perfect time to offer a bespoke treatment to any clients who present themselves with any mental health concerns.


For those suffering from stress-related issues, anxiety, or mental/emotional imbalance, reflexology can prove to be a supportive and healing therapy. Clients report being able to express emotions and feelings more openly, which can then lead to positive lifestyle changes and a feeling of being more in control. Reflexology is simple, safe and very effective and works well with other forms of medicine, both orthodox and complementary.


Mental illnesses are not confined to the mind, and their symptoms may manifest in the body’s nervous system, mood, immunity, thought processes and perception. Drugs such as anti-depressants are increasingly being used as the answer to these symptoms, but there are other alternate ways out there to treat them, including through the practice of reflexology.


The art of reflexology benefits mental health by stimulating the nervous and lymphatic systems, encouraging a release of the feel-good hormones Endorphins that are renown for relieving stress.

More Information

The Reflexology Supporting Mental Health Wellbeing workshop will be largely practical in content and as a result, you will need appropriate clinic workwear for the duration of the course. This is very much a practical day. As a result, we have sufficient time to practice and perform the techniques under the guidance of the tutor. During the course you will partner up with another therapist and will get the chance to perform the techniques taught as well as being the recipient. This is because understanding what the technique should feel like is an invaluable tool for you as a therapist.


Duration: 1 day
