Reflexology Diploma

Reflexology – Home study and practical assessment

Reflexology is the application of pressure techniques to the hands and feet to affect another part of the body.

These techniques stimulate pressure sensors, triggering relaxation response throughout the body. Reflexology encourages good health, promoting relaxation, easing pain, preventing disease and improving quality of life. The theory underlying reflexology is called Zone Theory. It is similar to the concept of meridians in acupuncture.

Just as meridians link one part of the body with another, so a combination of zone charts and maps connects the hands and feet to the organs and structures of the body.
