The origin of Reflexology is still debatable but is believed to have first been practised in Egypt, India and China. The Western world is now quite familiar with what reflexology involves and is a frequently used therapy running alongside conventional medicine or as a standalone treatment.
Reflexology is a treatment where the therapist applies pressure with the fingertips to specific points on the feet. The theory behind reflexology is that each pressure point of the foot relates to a specific part/ system of the body. When the therapist applies pressure to the points of the feet, they may feel a crystalline substance, where this substance found is an indication that there is blockage in the body’s systems. By working on this area to eradicate the crystals in the foot, the body will re-balance itself and initiate the body’s own ability to heal itself.
This is an intensive training course, held over four days. It is geared towards practising podiatrists (or existing holistic therapists), as an additional treatment they can provide for their patients/ clients to enhance well- being.
Students can practice reflexology, on each other, and volunteers, under supervision of a Reflexology practitioner and teacher. Most of the course content includes this practical element.
The student will then carry out case studies in their own time. Once the case studies and a practical assessment (by observation) have been completed the student will be awarded a Certificate in Reflexology, which is accredited by the Complementary Medical Association(CMA). The therapist can attain membership with the CMA and attain insurance to practice Reflexology professionally.

The theory of Reflexology and how this is used today as a complementary therapy
