  • Practical reflexology is at the heart of the course. A full range of specialised, light-touch techniques are taught, providing an excellent starting-point for focused, sensitive and responsive treatments. Advanced techniques are also introduced, drawing on some of the many and varied approaches to reflexology.
  • The course includes Complementary Therapies, Business and Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology. ‘Healthy Eating and Wellbeing’ is taught as an optional Unit.
  • To help students create a professional, holistic and successful practice,  the course also includes Foot-Reading, Listening Skills, First Aid training and Ergonomic advice.
  • Classes meet one or two Sundays a month, except during August. Online sessions and individual tutorials are scheduled to complement the in-person teaching .

Prospective students are offered an Introductory workshop and treatment, to explore their interest in Reflexology training before committing to the course. Cost is deducted from fees for those joining the Diploma training.

All prospective students will have an initial discussion and interview with the tutor.
