This VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Reflexology course is an advanced training programme providing a high level of expertise and enhanced career opportunities. It is ideal for anyone aspiring to train and practice at a high level and is an essential skill for any holistic therapist.
The feet are considered to be a map of the body mirroring its organs and structure. You will learn all the fundamental skills required to become a knowledgeable and confident professional Reflexologist.
Reflexology treatments involve massage and the application of pressure to specific reflex areas of the feet. By stimulating these reflex points on the feet circulation can be improved, tension decreased and body toxins can be eliminated. Reflexology treatments are designed to boost energy levels, enhance emotional wellbeing and can help with a number of physical problems such as arthritis, back pain, fatigue or alleviate stress-related problems e.g. migraines, tensions or high blood pressure.
