What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is stimulation of the reflexes in the Feet, Hands, Face or Ears (in this training, the feet) to EMPOWER the body and the mind to heal itself of ailments and disease and return to a space of homeostasis. The treatment releases blockages in the energy flow around the body and stimulates the circulatory and lymphatic system, at the same time.
Students will learn the science and application to the reflexes in the feet that directly correspond with the glands, organs and parts of the body through the nervous system and the energy pathways also known as meridians.
What does the training consist of?
The training consists of four full classroom instruction days as follows:
• 2 immersion days (the dates you see here on the site) which is the bulk of the classroom training.
• 1 review day (to be completed after 60% of home study and 60% of case studies/practicum hours are done)
• 1 restore and test/exam day (to be completed after the remaining 40% of the training has been completed)
Your restorative and exam day is also typically a day of celebration and all students will have their photos taken and be given their graduation packages. In the event a test needs to be repeated for any reason students will still have their photos done and will be given another test date
Along with the above classroom dates the students have a practicum of 60 case studies (self directed)
The remainder of the 200 h is completed with a combination of reading and assignment components and self directed study through your home study guide and e-course downloads (a full syllabus is provided on your first immersion class date)
