Stimulating these reflexes properly can help many health problems in a natural way, a type of preventative maintenance. Reflexology is a serious advance in the health field and should not be confused with Massage.

Based on the idea that all nerve zones begin in the feet, foot reflexology is thought to cure many ailments. By massaging certain areas of the foot, and applying certain pressures and strokes to particular areas, a practitioner of reflex zone therapy can provide many benefits. For example: The tips of the toes reflect the head, the heart and chest are around the ball of the foot the liver, pancreas and kidney are in the arch of the foot. Lower back and intestines are towards the heel. Therefore 'Reflexology' is a unique modality in the health field. Its purpose is not to treat or diagnose for any specific medical disorder, but to promote better health and well being in the same way as an exercise or diet program does.

Face Massage (Facial)

One of the outstanding services provided by our school is the 'Facial Massage' which uses natural ingredient such as tamarind which is known for its proven benefits for the skin hence making it more vibrant and beautiful. Healthy and glowing skin is one of the most important beauty assets. It doesn’t matter how light your skin if it looks sallow and pale. You will only look drawn, tired out and exhausted. Most of us concentrate on trying to get our complexions pimple-free, or on lightening our skin. However, just a light and pimple-free complexion does not ensure good looks. Enhancing features with make-up does help, but nothing looks as good as healthy and glowing skin. Massage stimulates circulation and brings more oxygen to the face. It also stimulates the production of collagen and tightens the skin. It also delays the onset of wrinkles. In addition, wrinkles on the forehead are often caused due to involuntary tightening of the muscles. Massage relaxes the muscles, and delays the formation of forehead wrinkles.
