Do you know what it takes for complete wellness? Do you know there are 8 dimensions to wellness, which should be fulfilled in order for you to feel balanced and complete? Wellness is the absence of disease in the body, but not only that, the overall feeling of physical, mental and emotional wellness. This will determine the overall state of wellness in the body.

Lesson 3: Introduction to reflexology

Reflexology dates back over 5000 years, although it cannot be traced back to one such civilization. Reflexology is based on the principal that every organ in the body is reflected in certain areas of the feet, hands or ears. By stimulating these points, the flow of energy through the body, which will target illness or stress, can be increased. It is mind blowing to think that the whole body can be represented on the feet. 

Lesson 4: Ayurvedic healing

Ayurveda is considered one of the oldest healing therapies. Originating in India over 5000 years ago, Ayurveda means the science of life, or alternately referred to as the mother of all healing.
