​Our ​Reflexology Course Success Stories.

*​Sandra, one of our reflexology course students, arrived for class with a severe headache. She had come, despite the pain, because she needed a break from the house. 

Looking at her feet, we noted the reflex for the eyes was extre​mly pale but there was nothing notable on the head reflex.  Sandra said her headache was across her eyes. 

​During the treatment, the eye reflex went from white to pale pink. We could still see the difference to the rest of the foot, but only if we really looked. 

When Sandra woke after her treatment she was amazed that the headache was practically gone.

So too was *Olwyn, the student who had been treating her and learning to "read" the feet!!

*​Natasha who was doing our reflexology course, had been in an accident a few months earlier and suffered from whiplash. 

Coming to class one day, she looked in pain. When we looked at her feet, we could see that the upper spine reflex, on the inner edge of the feet at the ball, had an exaggerated outward curve. Natasha confirmed that the whiplash was worse than usual that day. 

*Martin, another student, worked on Natasha with the tutor's guidance. He gently stretched, rubbed and kneaded the area. The curve was a lot less exaggerated and Natasha's feet looked more relaxed after the treatment.

*Natasha and *Martin were equally delighted when Natasha found she had almost full range of movement in her neck and mi​nimal pain and discomfort.

* Names have been changed to protect identities

​What You Will Learn on our
​Reflexology Course.

​You may be aware that all accredited reflexology courses cover the feet and hands as "maps" of the body, with a range ​of techniques to benefit the client on physical, mental and emotional levels. 

Our reflexology course covers all of these in detail, but we offer extra training ​including:-

  • Hand Reflexology. A really useful extra skill for anyone who would like a "taster" treatment, also ideal for elderly or infirm clients.  
  • Mini treatment (tailored to the time you have available) If a client is short of time, or if you'd like to offer treatments at charity events, open days or nursing homes, it's really useful to be able to offer a treatment in a shorter time. ​This module will include a shorter consultation form adapted to the mini treatment.
  • Healing Techniques including how to ground, centre and energetically cleanse yourself and your treatment room and how to use some beautiful healing techniques to enhance your reflexology treatment.  
  • How to Practice Self Care. Reflexologists, perhaps more than massage therapists, are quite at risk of carpal tunnel syndrome which causes pain and lack of mobility in the wrists and forearms. To prevent this, we use a variety of techniques giving your thumbs and fingers a rest. We also cover hand and wrist exercises and the use of natural vegetable oils in self care. 
  • Introduction to Acupressure. Acupressure has wonderful results for infertility, anxiety, digestive complaints and more. By learning the basic principles and some of the main points on the hands and feet, you will really enhance your treatments. 
  • Fertility Reflexology. Reflexology, while making no guarantees, has an excellent record for helping infertile couples. ​ ​You will be able to combine useful acupressure points to enhance ​fertility treatments.

​For anyone embarking on a career in holistic therapies I highly recommend Essentials. Small classes, continuous assessment and payment plans are just a few of the perks.

The main positive is the passion of the teachers and the confidence they impart to you to embrace the holistic path.
