Reflexology is a gentle, non-invasive therapy that encourages the body to balance and heal itself. It involves applying finger or thumb pressure to specific points on the hands and feet. These points are called reflexes and they reflect, or mirror, the organs and structures of the body as well as a person’s emotional health. In this way, the hands and feet are mini maps or microcosms of the body that can be used to encourage holistic healing.
This course will teach you the skills that you need to know in order to carry out a professional reflexology treatment.
The GTi Foot Reflexology course covers all the necessary anatomy and physiology which you will need to know in order to perform a reflexology treatment and so you do not need to hold a separate anatomy and physiology qualification.
The course also covers reception and consultation, the history and theories of reflexology, contra-indications to treatment and aftercare advice. It also includes detailed technique modules with clear images which show you how to read and interpret the feet as well as how to perform relaxation and pressure techniques. The course is accompanied by images and diagrams to give you the best possible learning experience.
On enrolment, students will receive a copy of the Guild’s full colour 336 page Reflexology text book which normally costs £19.95. As well as this they will also receive a DVD which details all the reflexology techniques featured in the course which they can refer back to whilst practising.
