How is this reflexology certification different from other reflexology trainings?

We have heard that many can have hesitation training in reflexology because of the perception that it’s hard work with repetitive finger and thumb walking.   Our course is different!  We use a relaxed, whole hand approach that is easy on the thumbs and fingers.  In fact, this protocol can even be done sitting down.  Unfortunately there are therapists out there who have repetitive use injuries due to other forms of reflexology and bodywork.  We individually help in our classes by creating modifications so that reflexology is easy on the body.   Those who train with us report that the feel a deep sense of relaxation while they are performing this protocol as client’s receive the therapeutic benefit of reflexology.
