Reflexology is a gentle, non-invasive therapy that encourages the body to balance and heal itself. It involves applying finger or thumb pressure to specific points on the feet. These points are called reflexes and they reflect, or mirror, the organs and structures of the body as well as a person’s emotional health. In this way, the feet are mini maps or microcosms of the body that can be used to encourage holistic healing.
This course will teach you everything you need to know in order to carry out a professional reflexology treatment. The theory is completed online at home in your own time before a practical training session is taken at our salon… Full tutorial support is available throughout your learning experience.
The GTi Foot Reflexology course covers all the necessary anatomy and physiology which you will need to know in order to perform a reflexology treatment and so you do not need to hold a separate anatomy and physiology qualification.
The course also covers reception and consultation, the history and theories of reflexology, contra-indications to treatment and aftercare advice. It also includes detailed technique modules with clear images which show you how to read and interpret the feet as well as how to perform relaxation and pressure techniques.
The course is beautifully written and accompanied by images and a voice-over to give you the best possible learning experience.
The course is fully accredited by the Guild of Beauty Therapists, the UK’s leading professional beauty trade body, for membership and insurance purposes. Upon completion of the course, students will receive a certificate for a GTi Award in Foot Reflexology.
On enrolment, students will receive a copy of the Guild’s full colour 336 page Reflexology text book which normally costs £19.95. As well as this they will also receive a DVD which details all the reflexology techniques featured in the course which they can refer back to whilst practising.
Approximately 23 hours online theory and 6 hour practical session.
