Reflexology Training Program

Program Courses – What’s this? About Reflexology More and more people throughout the world seek holistic options to find relief from health issues and as an alternative or complementary treatment to conventional medicine. Also known as zone therapy, Reflexology is based on the principle that an image of the body is represented on the face, ears, hands and feet. Reflexologists apply pressure to these areas with specific thumb and finger techniques. By pressing or stimulating a specific zone, the flow of energy, blood, nutrients and nerve reflexes are restored and balanced. SWIHA is careful to emphasize and reinforce that medical diagnosis and treatment is not the specific goal of Reflexology. However, in our supervised clinics we have witnessed individuals find relief from ear aches, anemia, bronchitis, hemorrhoids, hiccups, emphysema, prostate trouble, overactive thyroid, kidney stones, and other issues. Become a Reflexologist Although it is an excellent complement to massage therapy, … Read More

Nearly seven years ago, Kristin and her family moved to Arizona for her husband’s new job, leaving her family and old life behind in Boca Raton, Florida. On the outside, she had it all: a loving husband, four beautiful and healthy children, a large home and many friend — and yet, as Kristin revealed, she felt like she had no idea who she was as a person. Seven years of being a stay-at-home-mom took their toll on her.She spent that time feeling very resentful towards her husband for having to work such long hours, taking him away from their family and herself. All of these factors led her to a breaking point. “I had lost my identity,” confessed Kristin. After briefly using anti-depressants to help cope with her anxiety and depression, she knew there had … Read More
