Reflexology

Four-Day Reflexology Diploma

Reflexology is based on the principle that the feet are a map of the entire body, so that when the reflex points are stimulated, the therapist is treating the whole body not just the foot. The concept is not new, the Chinese developed the technique thousands of years ago.

Modern reflexology offers tremendous health benefits; it can help reduce stress, improve circulation, cleanse the body of toxins and revitalise energy levels. Reflexology works by stimulating the body’s own healing mechanisms in order to restore balance and a feeling of well being.

This four day course comprises:

  • Two days to learn theory, the routine and practice technique
  • One day to review theory and technique + time for practice
  • You will be required to complete and record 20 hours of case studies i.e. treat 4 people 5 times, or 5 people 4 times.
  • Half a day for assessment (students have 6 months from initial training date to complete case studies and assessment)
