Hand Reflexology Course
This one day Course focuses on Reflexology of the hands and covers anatomy, pathology, contraindications and full hand treatment.
Reflexology is a form of complementary medicine and involves a method of treatment using massage to reflex areas found in the hands.
It is said to have originated in China some 5000 years ago, when pressure therapy where used to correct energy fields in the body. It was not until around 1913 that the therapy was introduced to the west by an American ear, nose and throat consultant, Dr William Fitzgerald.
In the hands, there are reflex areas corresponding to all the parts of the body and these areas are arranged in such a way as to form a map of the body in the hands with the right hand corresponding to the right side of the body and the left hand to the left side of the body. Thus, it becomes possible to treat the whole body and the treat the body as a whole. This latter point is an important factor of a natural therapy and allows not only symptoms to be treated but also their causes.
It is thought that illness occurs when 'energy channels' in the body are blocked, causing damage to one area of another. Massage is aimed at destroying these blocks, allowing energy to flow freely again and so to heal the damage.
Reflexology does not claim to be a "cure all", but numerous different disorders seem to be responding well to this natural therapy. These disorders include such things as migraine, sinus problems, hormonal imbalances, breathing difficulties, digestive problems, circulatory problems, back problems, tension and stress.
