The ITEC Diploma in Reflexology Level 3 (International) course at The Greenhouse is an accredited course recognised by employers and insurers the world over. It is ideal for someone looking to begin their career as a Reflexology therapist. A natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet, hands and ears and their referral areas within zone related areas, which correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes without the use of tools or lotions, the feet being the primary area of application, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and helps promote the natural function of the related areas of the body. The course is designed to accommodate learners with Anatomy and Physiology knowledge looking to up-skill.
