Continuing Education Offers Foot Reflexology Courses

Two courses being offered through the Continuing Education program at Trent University will give students insight into Foot Reflexology, a focused pressure technique based on the premise that there are zones and reflexes on the feet which correspond to all the parts, organs and glands of the entire body. Benefits of Foot Reflexology include deep relaxation and removal of stress, enhancement of the body's circulation, easier normalization of metabolism and complements to other healing modalities.

The course will run for one day, on Saturday, June 10, 2006 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The cost is $125 plus GST. Pre-registration is required. See contact details below.
