Theories of Reflexology Course

Beginners and re-certifying reflexologists go deeper with The Stone Institute’s theories of reflexology course. The course opens with a brief, but in-depth, exploration of the objective of reflexology, which is to balance the body. An underlying principle is to lessen (or heal) impediments to balance (health), including deposits.

Extract: “A reflex is a specific area that when worked produces a change in the body. The reflex is not on the skin, but in the tissue.” Therapeutic Reflexology, p. 16.  A high quality color illustration shows the location of a deposit in the human skin.
