What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is an ancient art practiced for generations in the East and is now widely accepted in our Western Society. Reflexology is one of the most recognized and respected holistic therapies in Ireland. It is a non-invasive hands on therapy in which particular hand techniques are used to work ‘reflex’ points on the feet and hands. These points correspond to the organs and energy meridians within the body. Stimulation of these points has a positive healing effect on the correlating organs. Reflexology is a re-know ned its therapeutic effects

With the upgrading of holistic therapy training In Ireland you will see that Reflexology is one of the most accepted holistic therapies practiced in the medical field. Many hospitals and health boards employ reflexology in areas such as cancer care, post operative care etc. The health insurance companies recognize reflexology and if you are an Irish Reflexology Institute member your client can claim back from VHI, Quinn Health Care and AVIVAS and Laya and Glo health care for their reflexology treatment! There is little doubt that Reflexology has become a recognized major therapy in the holistic health field in our nations health care . Therefore an extremely successful career choice is choosing to become a member of the professional associations as a trained reflexologist.
