What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a treatment used to relieve tension and treat illness. It is based on the theory that there are reflex points on the feet, hands, and head linked to every part of the body. Reflexology is also known as zone therapy. It considers there is a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands. This Reflexology Course in Bath will teach you all you need to know to perform a wonderful Reflexology treatment and develop your reflexology skills.
How is reflexology performed?
Pressure is applied to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques that stimulate energy and release blockages.
Reflexology treatments are mainly used to release tension and stress. Stress can be a huge factor in worsening many health issues and not dealing with that build-up can create blocked energy in your body. Reflexology works to release this tension and therefore relieving this energy blockage. It allows your body to achieve a level of equilibrium, putting it into an ideal state to tackle anything from major to minor health concerns.
On top of releasing this stress, a session also helps increase blood circulation, release toxins, reduce and diminish pain and can induce a deep state of relaxation.
Why is reflexology so adaptable?
Reflexology can be perfect for a range of clients and has so many benefits. Only the lower leg/foot needs to be uncovered in order to perform the treatment so it is ideal for clients that don’t feel comfortable undressing further. It is also a very gentle treatment, suitable for nearly everyone, with very few contraindications. Inducing a state of complete relaxation, it is also beneficial for elderly or pregnant clients or those with limited mobility. This training is a fantastic addition to any practice, allowing you to treat a wide range of clients and ailments and is a very popular treatment.
