Course in Reflexology - 'Foot Massage'

Foot massage is a technique belonging to the field of Holistic Medicine, which

stimulates the body’s organic, lymphatic, nervous and muscular systems. Our feet reflect all parts of the body, according to real and specific correspondences and this makes it possible to reach these parts through a reflexive action.

According to reflexology  the human body is a sensitive organism which – in order to keep its vitality and thus  a perfect state of health - should maintain in perfect balance all of its components. Through reflexology we can intervene on the main problems, due to stress or to other types of tensions, by relaxing and invigorating the whole body, working on the Feet. Furthermore one may intervene with estreme efficacy on the lymphatic, cardio-vascular, reproductive, nervous and muscular systems.


Attendance to the Course is open to all those people who are interested in Foot Massage for professional reasons, as well as to those who wish to attain a deeper knowledge of themselves and other people.


Petra Klein’s Course in Reflexology is recognized by the Ministry of  Health as ECM Formative Credits for Physiotherapists and Massophysiotherapists, since the professional training in Reflexology creates operators  who are experts in techniques of health education as well as of illness prevention.

Through the ‘reading’ of the foot and the identification of affected parts of the organism, ‘Foot Massage’ becomes one of the most efficient  techniques of verification  in the field of Natural Medicine. Expert operators can apply ‘Foot Massage’ both in their  private professional activity  and as a support to a doctor’s activity.
