It locates different zones of the feet that relate to different parts of the body. For instance, the big toe relates to the head and you will find the brain reflex here.   This is the Reflexology Foot Chart designed by the Reflexology […]

First Aid Training Courses in Cheltenham     About 8 years ago I was walking along Cheltenham High Street with my 2 children. In the doorway of a coffee shop was an elderly man, looking pale and laying on his back.  It took me a little while to read the situation as the coffee shop was full of people and there were numerous people outside the shop too!  I approached the man and the onlookers and asked if he was ok.  There was no response! My First Aid training from my past came to me and i crouched next to the man.  When the paramedics arrived I felt overwhelmed.  I […]

Pregnancy Massage Training Course in Gloucestershire May 2018

FHT-Accredited Pregnancy Massage Training at Cheltenham School of Complementary Therapy & Beauty May 14th and 15th, 2018 It’s difficult for massage therapists to decide what training they would like to invest in as there’s just so many courses out there to choose from.  Some massage therapists decided to treat pregnant clients without additional specialist training. As long as therapists are insured, this is ok, although we would like to think that specialist pregnancy massage training gives qualified therapists an edge of knowledge and expertise that the client will respect. I think most of us are finding that clients are more discerning than ever and in my own therapy I have […]
