The online presence of Christo Scheepers Therapeutic Reflexologist
The home of Non-Invasive Foot Therapy where your feet are our therapeutic domain
Touching Lives through Touching Feet since 2003
Reflexology is one of the most popular Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) modalities offering you non-invasive therapy mainly through your feet (and other body parts like hands and ears).
Specific reflexes (nerve endings) on the feet are stimulated with certain pressure techniques which induces deep relaxation and an involuntary response in body organs and glands connected by electromagnetic pathways to these reflexes. That increases overall wellness as it helps your body to get back into balance and heal itself while ridding the body of toxins accumulating in the body through modern-day lifestyles.
South African Legislation
In South Africa Therapeutic Reflexology is a profession registered and professionally regulated by the Allied Health Professions Council of South Africa (AHPCSA) in terms of the Allied Health Professions Act, 1982 (Act 63 of 1982), making it illegal to practice reflexology without being registered with this statutory council. This is important to protect the public and when you consider offering your feet or body to anyone to work on, you should enquire from that therapist whether he or she is professionally qualified and legally registered with the AHPCSA in order to practice.
