The practical element of the Foot Reflexology Practitioner Diploma course is two intensive days of practical training leading to your college diploma. Assessment is by short written test plus a consultation and client treatment. The original Reflexology courses taught in the UK were short ones and our course keeps up the tradition of straightforward, practical training which is accessible for everyone. It is affordable and accessible to busy students with families and full-time jobs.
Our reflexology training is accredited for membership of Professional Ethical Practitioners including professional insurance. You can also insure direct with Westminster Indemnity - apply online!

On the two-day Reflexology practical training element you will learn all of the zones and reflex areas, the hand positions and techniques. You will be taught to carry out a full consultation, assess the feet and give a session to clients using the full range of reflexology techniques and covering all the reflexes. Your assessment consists of giving a full reflexology session suitable for your client on the final day, along with a short written test.
