Practitioner's Diploma in Reflexology

This is a Practitioner' s Diploma course affiliated with the NRRI, and is run over 14 months with 2 months off for case studies and practical work. Please note ITEC accreditation is also available from 2021. 

The training we provide in traditional Reflexology enables students to build their own successful practice or add to their existing health care practice. Helping others to heal is our mission and the priority in everything that we teach. We aim to offer our students a fulfilling learning experience and build confidence in their ability to help others. Our overall mission is to promote healing through the benefits of Reflexology.


We place a strong focus on the practical side of Reflexology. We teach approaches to treatment including the pressure, the location of the points and relevant techniques for appropriate conditions. Our objective is to empower our students to assist their own clients in addressing their health problems successfully.

We only work with small groups [max. 20 students] and give one-to-one guidance under the supervision of trainers with years of clinical and teaching experience in the industry of complementary healing.
 

Our Diploma is a completely comprehensive course with two months study time before the examinations. As such there is no requirement for a student to have experience of reflexology prior to enrolling. The course is accredited by the National Register of Reflexologists, Ireland.

During the course there will always be a balance between learning the theory side of reflexology and the practical work. Students must complete all modules in order to graduate in the Diploma Course. However if a student is unable to attend a module, efforts will be made to accommodate and re-arrange the class missed at a date suitable for both parties. Facilitating this is at the discretion of the school principal.
