Posted · Add Comment

Reflexology is a fascinating therapy There are many theories of how reflexology works. There are over 7000 nerve-endings in the feet and one theory is that when these nerves are pressed, nerve messages are sent to and from different, related, areas of the body. Reflexology is quite a complex and in-depth holistic therapy. The reflexology foot chart is a good place to start when learning about reflexology.

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.

Some theorists say that crystal deposits (waste from cells) settle around nerve endings and when these are cleared the body works more effectively. Other people believe that there are energy meridians in the body that make it function at its best and if the pathways are blocked wellbeing will […]
