Description

Course Description:

(Including Anatomy, Physiology & Pathology and Business Practice, Health, Safety and Hygiene Modules)

In order to ensure you get the best Reflexology qualification available (and don’t have any problems with the recognition of your Reflexology qualification in the future) our Reflexology Courses follow the latest ITEC QCF (Qualifications Credit Framework) syllabus which was introduced by the UK Government in September 2009 (and revised in September 2012).

reflexologytrainingThis means that when the Government establishes a National Register for Complementary Medicine your qualification in Reflexology will be automatically recognised and you are able to work within the National Health Sector.   Once qualified you will be able to join any of the leading professional associations and the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council.

You will learn how to perform a full Reflexology treatment confidently incorporating all the classical Reflexology techniques , so that you can practise professionally as solo practitioner or as a member of a team in a multidisciplinary setting.

You will be confident in undertaking a visual analysis and ‘reading ‘the feet and hands as well as performing and adapting Reflexology treatment techniques correctly and safely to meet the individual needs of your client.

You will be able to confidently identify factors that may influence your treatment objectives as well as provide clear recommendations to your client.  You will learn when and how to treat a person holistically, and also importantly when not to treat.  You will also learn how to build you professional practise ethically.

reflexologyfootYou benefit from having the Anatomy & Physiology integrated into the Course helping you integrate your Reflexology practical and theory.  (If you already hold a recognised Anatomy & Physiology qualification you can undertake the Reflexology module only).

If you do not have a thorough grounding in Anatomy & Physiology you are not performing a Reflexology treatment – what you are performing is a foot massage ! Our Anatomy & Physiology is always taught by someone with a higher qualification in Anatomy & Physiology

You gain from having different teachers teaching their individual areas of passion and expertise rather than one teacher teaching you all the elements of the Course

Course Structure:

London Reflexology CourseOur Reflexology Course has been taught for over 20 years and is continually being updated and refined with the latest developments in the field and feedback from students.

The course is run over 8 attendance weekends over 9 months to give students enough time to understand the material being taught and perform a full reflexology treatment competently and professionally.

The first 2 attendance weekends are closer together so that you have enough of the practical sequence that you can go away and start practising (with the help of our detailed manuals and resources on the virtual learning environment).

The remaining weekends are approximately every 5 weekends to give you the time to practice you reflexology techniques and undertake your home study.  Over the years we have found that this is the timeframe that works best for most students.

Our Reflexology Class sizes are strictly limited to 12 to ensure that each student receives the individual attention they require to help them learn and succeed.
