Reflexology is a system of diagnosis and treatment of particular health conditions and disorders using compression massage on certain points on the feet.
The Diploma of Reflexology has been designed for those who wish to learn the step by step approach to working the systems of the body on the feet. The principles of reflexology are outlined along with a sound fundamental and practical understanding of zone therapy. In addition, sequential reflexology treatments will be performed in class, through case studies and other means of assessment.
Benefits of Reflexology

The efficacy of reflexology to treat a variety of health conditions has been extensively researched in China and Europe. In the last ten years Reflexology has also become a mainstream complementary therapy in Australia. Reflexologists work in nursing homes, hospitals, businesses and mine sites – and many health funds give rebates for reflexology services.

Most people find reflexology deeply relaxing at a physical, mental and emotional level, thus allowing the body’s healing mechanisms to function more effectively. The proven benefits of reflexology include improved immunity, mental clarity, sleep quality, improved digestion and bowel function, increased circulation and detoxification. A variety of health conditions have been shown to have improved with Reflexology.
