  • The wellness lifestyle

    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. When these are not in balance with each other, we can feel unwell. This lesson will teach the 8 dimensions to wellness, and how to balance them with the introduction to alternate therapies.

  • Introduction to reflexology

    Reflexology dates back over 5000 years, although it cannot be traced back to one such civilization.

This lesson is going to introduce reflexology, and how it came about as an alternate treatment.
