Reflexology is the science and therapeutic art of working specific reflex pathways on the feet, hands, and ears. The stimulation of these pathways using thumb, finger and hand techniques encourages relaxation, stress reduction, and promotes the opportunity for physiological changes to manifest in the body. Reflexology is rooted in ancient traditions that are amazingly appropriate for the modern world. The Reflexology Program is approved by the Colorado Division of Private Occupational Schools (CDPOS). Not approved by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES).
