Reflexology is a system of working reflexes in the feet and hands which correspond to every organ and gland in the body.

Reflexology training ITEC 3

Reflexology is a non-invasive, hands-on therapy in which techniques similar to acupressure and massage are used on specific points on the feet (and sometimes on the hands). It is thought that there are points on the hands and feet which correspond to organs, systems and structures within the body, and stimulation of these points can have a beneficial effect. Reflexology can be used to help the body to move out of a dysfunctional state, or is frequently used to maintain good health.
Whilst the origins of this ancient therapy are not fully known, it is clear that many cultures throughout the world have practised some form of foot pressure massage. Evidence of this is apparent in many ancient cultures, including Chinese, Egyptian, Indian and North American Indians.

How does Reflexology work?

Theories of Reflexology are the subject of much debate. However, it is widely accepted that different parts of body are mirrored on the feet in specific reflex points. Through touch, the therapist’s hands may detect imbalances in the feet, which can indicate dysfunction in one or more of the body’s systems.

Reflexology as a career

Gaining a qualification in professional Reflexology is your first step to a successful practise. A lot of hard work is required to achieve your goal but it will be worth it! Reflexology is now recommended by many doctors, nurses and other health professionals as a safe and effective way to manage health and wellness.
It takes time to develop a practise. The majority of reflexologists are self-employed and work either from home or rent a room in a multi-disciplinary clinic. Some practitioners provide reflexology services in offices and other corporate settings, as employers look for effective ways to manage stress in the workplace. A growing number of nurses, midwives, physiotherapists and public health practitioners are also undertaking reflexology training as an adjunct to their existing skills.
