Diploma in Reflexology
Why Study Reflexology?
Reflexology is a pressure massage therapy that works on the reflex points of the feet. It has been practiced for thousands of years by the Egyptians and Chinese as a means of clearing blockages and improving energy flow within the body, therefore aiding healing.
Having worked as a reflexologist for 12 years, I have found it to be a very powerful healing tool that can help rebalance a multitude of different conditions in sometimes quite remarkable ways. It is also an increasingly popular therapy and it can provide a very fulfilling means of earning an income whilst offering health and balance to those you treat.
By the end of this diploma course you will have gained a deep understanding of the theory and practice of reflexology and be confident to enter the world as a professional reflexologist. It is my aim that this ancient form of healing brings health and abundance to you and your clients for years to come!
