FURTHER INFORMATION

What is Reflexology

Reflexology is a complementary therapy, that is, it is used in conjunction with conventional medicine to assist in the body’s recovery from certain diseases and illnesses. It does not diagnose or cure. 
It is particularly useful for stress related conditions as it helps to discharge the negative effects of stress and stimulate the body’s own healing.

Reflexology is a renewal and maintenance programme for the body. It not only aids recovery but helps the body to maintain health. It is not necessary to have a ‘symptom’ to benefit from reflexology.  

Reflexology has many benefits. It can be used to help prevent illness, restore balance, relax the body mind and spirit.

About Massage therapy Course

The best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
