Video Course: Foot Reflexology 1 & 2: Benefits, Philosophy, and the 34 Points

Marc Zollicoffer

Our feet hold great healing power—a secret that ancient civilizations have known and practiced for centuries. This dynamic course introduces you to the benefits and philosophy of foot reflexology and highlights how the modality works with both the physical and energetic bodies. Review the anatomy of the foot—including the fascia, bony landmarks, and muscles—before following along on your own feet as the instructor teaches each of the 34 foot reflexology points in order, covering the physical location of, and technique used on, each point.

This course is the first in a pairing of two courses.
