• Thank you for your interest in learning reflexology. Finding a reflexology course will take some investigative work on your part. It is up to the individual to do his or her research about any schools or courses of interest and ask the right questions of those contacted.
• This site does not pretend to be comprehensive in its content but is intended to assist potential reflexology students in their search for legitimate reflexology training. Be cautioned that reflexology is a stand alone practice, listed as one of the “10 common CAM modalities” and is not to be confused with Massage Therapy nor should coursework in Massage Therapy or Cosmetology be construed as valid training for professional reflexology. Additionally, while internet and online training courses can be valuable in some cases, hands on training is necessary and required for National Board Certification (see Note below). The American Reflexology Certification Board requires 110 in-class hours to sit for Board Exams and the Reflexology Association of America requires that 60% of their 300 reflexology-only education requirement be obtained in a classroom to qualify as a Professional member.
• NOTE: Over the last two decades new teaching technologies have emerged with the growth of the Internet. Students, whether for initial education or to meet continuing education requirements, in reflexology are being offered courses online. The introduction of online education has its pros and cons. However, some interaction with a teacher is absolutely necessary in learning a kinesthetic skill like reflexology. One simply cannot learn techniques, pressure, depth of work, and flow by reading a book, viewing a DVD, or taking a course over the Internet. Internet courses can successfully be used for CE credits after an initial hands-on course has been completed .
DISCLAIMER: The site is provided as a public service and is not affiliated with any reflexology program and does not endorse or recommend any reflexology curriculum or instructor but is intended to offer valid comparison criteria for evaluation of schools and training programs.
