Some testimonials for previous years’ students
I completed a Reflexology Diploma course at Obus in January this year. My year studying Reflexology was fantastic and enlightening.The course gave me a great deal of information and knowledge which will really help me to help my clients. Maria Mc Govern 2010

Doing a Diploma in Reflexology has opened doors for me as a therapist and has added a new dimension to my therapies. Reflexology never ceases to amaze me, both as an indicator to a client’s general wellbeing and as a powerful yet gentle therapy.  Having now completed many courses and this second Diploma with OBUS I find it a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in which to study .Being able to study Reflexology at the weekends has given me the freedom to do my Diploma while continuing with my life. Hazel Nangle 2010

What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is gentle and therapeutic massage of the feet and the hands which helps to activate the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Reflexology 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 deeply relaxing and detoxifying to the body, mind and spirit.

Reflexology 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 apply pressure to these points the therapist can stimulate healing and thus clear congestion, nurture depletion and help the body return to homeostasis.

Reflexology has many benefits. It can be used to help prevent illness, restore balance, and relax the body mind and spirit.
