Welcome to the Hand reflexology online course
Hand Reflexology is a wonderfully relaxing experience. The hands have Reflex points which map and reflect the entire body. When these points are massaged, using specific techniques, they release blocked energy and bring the body to good health. Hand Reflexology harmonises all the body’s functions, helping to improve blood and nerve supply and release toxins.
Stress and tension are relieved and the mind and emotions are calmed. Hand Reflexology is ideal for preventing dis-ease and maintaining and extending optimum health. It can be used for self-treatment, or where foot Reflexology is not appropriate.
This course is accredited with IICT (International Institute for Complementary Therapists) & The CMA (Complementary Medical Association), and on completion of the course and submission of your case studies, you will be awarded an accredited Holistic Therapies Training Diploma.
Throughout some of the modules, you will come across this image, where it will ask you to complete a task.
This is a good practice task to get your business working in an optimal professional way! You do not need to send it to us, but are there to give you some tips and ways to improve on your working practices and to prepare you for completing your case studies.
