Foot Reflexology Schools and the Ancient Wisdom They Supply

Alternative Medicine
Foot reflexology schools provide an ancient healing art that helps patients to naturally reduce stress and promote self-healing through noninvasive therapeutic touch. From a historical standpoint, the origins of foot reflexology were recently verified in an Egyptian wall painting dating back to about 2300 B.C.; but reflexology is believed to have emerged from a mixture of many ancient cultures.

Students who wish to enroll in a foot reflexology school will learn a great deal about the roots of foot reflexology practices and theories, as well as the anatomy and physiology of the human body and the interrelationship between its many diverse systems. Students are also given instruction in the professional aspects of running an independent business.

Some finer points that students will learn in foot reflexology training are the benefits provided by administering reflexology and other massage techniques, such as stress reduction, improved circulation, increased energy, pain reduction, and the promotion of overall wellbeing.

The actual practice of foot reflexology is gained through knowledge and skills provided by schools that offer extensive foot reflexology charts, textbook work and practical training. Individual foot reflexology schools set a specific course length and provide group or individual instruction to insure complete understanding of the learning process.

Other common curriculums taught at reflexology colleges may include the principles of reflexology, pressure points, recognition of health conditions, medical terminology, basic hygiene, client record keeping, and other relevant topics. Once you "get your feet wet" with foot reflexology studies, you may decide to branch out into a more advanced form of natural healing, such as chiropractic or acupuncture, for instance.

In addition, a number of foot reflexology schools also offer canine foot reflexology programs that offer the same benefits to dogs as they do their human counterparts. An amazingly simple course of study, foot reflexology courses are designed for healing arts practitioners who enjoy working with people (and in some cases, animals, and for those who have a desire to promote natural healing. Furthermore, foot reflexology graduates are usually awarded a professional certificate from their individual school or course.
