Diploma Description

Our Diploma in Reflexology course teaches students about the ancient therapy used in China, Egypt, and India. Reflexology provides effective, holistic treatment for both common and more serious disorders. According to the theory behind Reflexology, the hands and feet are microcosms of the body, containing points or zones that relate to individual glands, nerves, muscles, and organs.

Reflexology harnesses the body’s healing energy by stimulating specific pressure points on the hands and feet, alleviating the energy blocks that can cause pain or disability and restoring optimum health.

In The Reflexology Manual, which is used during the Diploma in Reflexology course, the practical text guides the reader in mastering these self-help techniques, and colour photographs illustrate a
full reflexology treatment step by step.

In addition to the completion of theory on-line, the student will also view the practical step by step instruction video.

After attaining The Diploma in Reflexology, the successful Graduate can then apply to the Canadian Examining Board of Healthcare Practitioners (CanadianExaminigBoard.com), to become a Certified Reflexology Health Practitioner CRHP.
