Lecture Topic: The Four Schools of Reflexology
This four-hour intro course will demonstrate and instruct students on how to apply the modality of Reflexology to the four major extremities: The Feet, Hands, Face and Ears.

Perfect for therapists looking to deepen their practice and save their hands, The Four Schools of Reflexology course emphasizes proper palpation, alignment and the concept of applying ‘perfect pressure’ to increase the effectiveness of the therapist while protecting the client from improper Reflexology technique. You will walk away from this course understanding the basic routine that will enliven your menu of services, increase the value you bring to the table and give you an inside look into the wonderful world of a multi-faceted Reflexologist.
