3. Reflexology: Learn How To Treat Clients With Reflexology Technique

Reflexologists work holistically with their clients and aim to work alongside allopathic healthcare to promote better health for their clients.

The Reflexology Course guides students through treating clients with reflexology techniques. This course goes into great depth about the various systems of the body, how they should function when in a healthy state, how each can become disordered, and how to aid recovery through reflexology.

The course explains the digestive system, imparting knowledge about essential foodstuffs needed on a daily basis, the general function of the various digestive organs, specifics about the liver, and the process of swallowing. The course explains the various conditions that can arise should the digestive system become disordered, what reflexology can do to aid these types of ailments and how to perform the necessary techniques on the relevant areas of the feet.

The course describes the common disorders that can occur in the respiratory system, what can be done with reflexology to aid symptoms, and which techniques to apply.

Students will learn the musculoskeletal system and how reflexology can help in alleviating pain found within this system. The hands can be used a similar way as the feet in aiding symptoms of disorders in various areas of the body.

4. Acupressure: An Ancient Chinese Healing Therapy

Acupressure is based on the concept of life energy (also known as Chi or Qi), which flows through the body along pathways known as meridians. The belief is that many of the discomforts or even diseases that we suffer with are a result of blockages occurring in these meridians, causing a negative effect to the flow of our life energy. Acupressure is an alternative medicine technique that identifies specific points on the body (known as acupoints) where the flow of our life force is being hindered and, rather than using needles as acupuncture does, uses precise finger placement to apply pressure to these areas to unblock the pathway, freeing up the flow of life force and relieving symptoms.

Who would benefit from this course?

Written for complete beginners to the subject, this course requires no prerequisites, just an eagerness to learn, and will take you from novice to business owner. The Acupressure Course is also beneficial to those who have studied other alternative therapies or may already have a therapy business and wish to expand their repertoire and the services they can offer.
