In the course we will provide an introduction to reflexology. This ancient and modern application of systematic foot techniques provides effective pain relief and restores balance to body, mind and spirit by engaging our natural ability to heal.
We will learn the history, theory and application of reflexology through a powerpoint presentation and classroom practice. Students will learn how to stimulate inherent, self-corrective reflexes that help the body to create balance naturally.
