Program Design

The Academy has designed this career focused training program, to develop a thorough understanding of the human body and the practice of Reflexology on individuals, within a wholistic perspective. The program of study will examine the use of multiple reflex points throughout the body to address the client’s needs.

This will include 5 integrated approaches to Reflexology through the feet, hands, face, head and ears. The 5 regional anatomical approaches to Reflexology enables the practitioner to develop multi-facetted treatment plans. This also provides the practitioner with alternatives and flexibilities, specifically when working with seniors and when treating clients with disabilities, health conditions or in open space environments.

This program of study will also provide a platform of how to use Reflexology techniques in support of other health disciplines, as well as, on an individual therapy basis. This knowledge supports the client’s overall healthcare program, as he/she works towards restoring and maintaining their personal health balance.

How do I take this program?

It is important to take the Anatomy & Physiology subjects as the student progresses through  their reflexology training. The understanding of the human body structure, its systems and how it works is vital to a reflexologist’s technical knowledge and practical skills. If this knowledge is acquired in concert with learning the skill development techniques for reflexology, the student will gain an integrated understanding of how a reflexology point or design of a treatment plan will most impact or benefit the human body. The graduate will understand why a particular treatment approach will help to change the body’s condition.

It is recommended the student undertake the commitment to complete the program as designed in the 4 semesters, as all subjects will be offered within 4 consecutive semesters.

A student may take the program one subject at a time, however, this may take a longer period of time, since some subjects are offered once per year. The full program must be completed within 2 years.

Subject selection is to be completed no later than 7 days prior to the start of the semester in order to reserve seating and to assist the Academy to arrange copies of the required class notes or textbook available for your use at the start of the scheduled class.

If the student selects the subject by subject option, pay as you go…a semester registration form must be signed or emailed by the student to the Academy in order to register the student in the requested subject(s), in advance of the semester or subject start-up date.

If the student undertakes to register for the full program of study, then nothing else will be required, as the student will automatically be registered in the scheduled subject.
