Foot Reflexology Diploma

Prices and dates for all course are on the Home Page. If you wish to book a Reflexology course, please email us to arrange your place and how to pay your deposit.

The Foot Reflexology Practitioner Diploma is recognised by the Beauty Guild/Guild of Holistic Therapists if you take their online anatomy & physiology and professional standards courses, available through us. You can book reflexology as a package with these two courses at a discounted price.

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! Simple and easy to do and exclusive to my students! You can choose to join the Beauty Guild/Guild of Holistic Therapists if you add on their online Anatomy & Physiology and Professional Standards courses - contact me if you would like to arrange this extra theory training. If you are already a Guild member and have A&P and PS then you can claim 26 CPD points.

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.
