About Reflexology

Reflexology is a gentle bodywork technique applied to maps resembling the human body located on the feet, hands, and outer ears. Students study the ten reflex zones, Reflexology-specific finger and thumb pressure techniques, and how to support internal organs and every body system through this unique modality. Reflexology is a deeply relaxing modality that promotes wellness from the inside out.
