Overview

Reflexology for Foot Care Specialists

Reflexology is a complementary therapy involving the treatment of various disorders by applying pressure to certain points on the feet. Precise areas of the feet relate to particular parts of the body. The whole body can be treated via these points, which are called 'reflex areas'. Although hand reflexology is also done, this course concentrates on foot reflexology.

Treatment by the therapist involves applying pressure to the precise reflex point with the thumb or the fingers. In doing this, different sensations will be felt by the person receiving treatments. These feelings which the client experiences can then be interpreted by the therapist, as indicating which parts of the body are working well and which are not.
