A Personal Development Class
Reflexology is an ancient healing art and preventative care system that strengthens the body's immune system. Reflexology assists in relaxation, improving circulation and reducing stress. It has been shown to be effective in the relief of pain, headaches, arthritis, as well as improving conditions for problems with restless legs, diabetes and many other conditions. Students will review the history, reflexology map and basic anatomy of the feet. They will also learn the basic skills of reflexology, developing the thumb and finger walking technique.
Four specific reflex areas will be taught that will decrease stress, induce relaxation. A fun, informal class!
