Reflexologist Career / Job Prospects

Reflexologist Career / Job ProspectsWhat do Reflexologists do?
Would you like a flexible and rewarding healthcare career where you help people bring about positive change in their well-being? Reflexology (also known as zone therapy) is a safe and drug-free alternative medicine practice of applying pressure to the feet, hands and ears to stimulate the body's natural healing power. 

Reflexologists use certain thumb, finger and hand techniques to apply pressure and remove energy (Qi) blockages from the internal glands and organs of the body. They use a reflexology chart that maps the feet, hands and ears into a system of zones that reflects an image of the body's organs and glands, because these areas cannot be directly massaged, reflexology is an appropriate alternative. Reflexologists believe that when Qi (the invisible life force) is flowing in balanced harmony, this results in positive well-being. 

Reflexologists use a Holistic approach to promote the natural function of the body, and can work with individuals of all ages including children, adults, the elderly and the sick. They work from their own homes, travel to clients homes or work in an alternative medicine clinical setting that also offers other complementary therapies such as Acupuncture, Aromatherapy, Homeopathy and Reiki. No oil, cream or lotion is used during reflexology sessions, but is normally applied afterwards.
