REFLEXOLOGY TRAINING Next course commencing March - Novemebr 2020 alternate Sundays at The Sanctuary of Healing, Langho, Lancashire.
The Academy of Foot Tapping Reflexology is the place to learn reflexology with an emphasis on the holistic approach to health and wellbeing.
The Academy offers training with a “hands on” teaching approach that guides and nurtures you to develop the skills, knowledge, understanding and empathy to become an excellent reflexologist.
Tutor led experts in anatomy and physiology lead you on a journey through the bodies systems, how they function and what happens when the systems go wrong. Experienced reflexologists help you gain confidence and skills in “feeling” the physical and energy body through the feet so you can understand the causes as well as symptoms of disease and help the body and mind to function efficiently and encourage the body into a healing state and the mind into a positive place.
