  • Diploma in Reflexology and Holistic Studies

    Reflexology is a gentle and therapeutic massage of the feet and the hands which helps to activate the body’s innate ability to heal itself.  It helps to restore and balance the flow of Qi throughout the body by applying alternating pressure on a specific points or areas of the foot or hand.  It is based on the knowledge that the reflex points on the feet and hands correspond with all the organs and glands of the body. By applying pressure to these points the therapist can stimulate healing and thus clear congestion, nurture depletion and help the body return to homeostasis. Reflexology is deeply relaxing and detoxifying to the body, mind and spirit.

    NUTRITION – The forgotten Medicine

    The definition of nutrition is “the process of absorbing nutrients from food and processing them in the body in order to keep healthy or to grow”.

    Unfortunately for lots of people their only conscious interaction with the food they eat is counting calories to help them lose weight. Because of this they look at some foods as good or bad only in relation to how many calories it contains and therefore how much of it they can eat.
