An Aromaflexology treatment that combines Aromatherapy and Reflexology.

Aromatherapy is the art of using aromas to bring about a balancing, health-inducing state to the individual – spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically.  The word ‘aroma’ simply means smell.  The word ‘therapy’, means a treatment designed to cure.

Reflexology is a complementary therapy in which the reflex points on the feet are stimulated to bring about relaxation in corresponding parts of the body. As the feet represent a map of the body, all the organs, glands and other body parts are laid out in a similar arrangement on the feet.

The combination of these two therapies is a very powerful method for treating your client.

The course introduces basic reflex points on the feet in order to help with client analysis and assessment. A full reflex massage is also taught. Developed originally by Shirley Price, this excellent treatment is invaluable for the bed-bound and inactive; also used for the elderly, infirm, pregnant and arthritic, and many more client groups.

This practical course is suitable for therapists qualified in either of the two disciplines with a working knowledge of the other.
