What The Graduates Say About This Course
3 Steps To Become A Foot Reflexology Therapist
Step 1: Learn The Theory
Core reflexology is where you learn the history, theory, anatomy, physiology, how reflexes are mapped on the feet and an introduction into the business side of the course.
Once you are ready, you will write a written exam before getting started on the fun stuff - doing the practical sessions with the practice clients.
Step 2: Learn The Practical Method
The practical training will teach you how to do a foot reflexology session as expected by the Reflexology Association of Canada. To complete this portion of the training, you will have to do 20 practical sessions before completing a mandatory review to ensure you are doing the method correctly. Once the review has been done, you will continue on to complete the 30 remaining sessions.
Step 3: Certification
To be certified, you must:
- Complete the training and 50 sessions
- Have a professional reflexology session done
- Have your client case studies documented
- Pass the practical exam (Don’t panic, there is plenty of support in the student portal to ensure you are well equipped to pass!)
