The Four Schools of Reflexology

Reflexology is a powerful modality that can save your hands, increase your effectiveness with clients and give you insights as to where your client’s pain is coming from.

What is not commonly known is that the reflex areas manipulated during a Reflexology session are present on the feet, hands, face AND ears! During this two hour demo-lecture class Sam Belyea a.k.a. The Foot Whisperer of Tampa will be demonstrating Reflexology technique on the four extremities LIVE while answering common questions posed by the audience.

Learn how Reflexology truly works, what it takes to become a Reflexologist and how you can start to read the extremities by recognizing the five major zones present on the feet, hands, face and ears.
