Holistic Reflexology

Reflexology is the study of reflex points on the feet which correspond to each organ and system in the body. One of the theories of reflexology suggests that energy flows from vital organs and systems through channels in the body and terminate to form the reflex points of the feet. When this energy flow is blocked by stress, tension or congestion, disease occurs. By massaging these reflex points, the person is relaxed, the circulation improves and the blockages are broken down, harmony and energy balance within the body are restored.

In this course we will discuss the theories, practical skills, psychological and physical health benefits of this ancient art of natural healing which has been accepted by the public worldwide and holistic care professionals and individual medical doctors.

We also include in this course how to incorporate reflexology with other related subjects such as shiatsu and acupressure, hydrotherapy, aromatherapy, indications and contraindications.

A case of Irritable Bowel syndrome

"Dr. Hoffman was treating a 40-year-old, professional man, “very skeptical and rational”, for irritable bowel syndrome. “It’s a non-specific intestinal problem that can be really debilitating”, he says. “The man felt completely out of control and powerless in dealing with it.” He’s already seen a gastroenterologist for tests. We assessed his digestion, tried digestive aids, even manipulated his diet and found he wasn’t allergic to anything. We treated him for Candida, which often causes bloating, and gas, and that didn’t work. We worked on his style of eating. We tried stress reduction and relaxation, and that didn’t take. “Almost in desperation I said, “Go to a reflexologist, and who knows? Maybe that’ll will work”, And somehow it did!"
