Basic Holistic Foot Reflexology Certificate Weekend Course
This intensive seventy five hour course is offered on weekends and consists of twenty hours of group instruction, fifteen hours home study and forty hours of practicum. Enrolment is limited to twelve participants ensuring plenty of personal supervision during the learning process. A complete set of course notes plus an audio CD that guides the listener through a complete foot reflexology session are provided to participants to support them in their learning.
The first evening of the course commences with an introduction to the historical and theoretical context of reflexology. The evening is completed with a “hands-on” introduction to the techniques used to loosen up and relax the feet and the basic techniques used to stimulate reflexes.
Saturday, instruction covers preparation for a session and learning the techniques used to stimulate the different reflexes of the feet.
Sunday, these techniques are repeatedly reviewed by participants to develop confidence.
At the conclusion of the course instruction the requirements of the home study and practicum are reviewed before participants set out to practice on their friends.
Participants submit documentation of their practice and home study for review and coaching upon completion of their practicum. Participants who are not able to submit their documentation in person submit it by mail.
The promise of the course is that participants who complete the requirements will be able to practice foot reflexology competently.
This course, combined with the Advanced Reflexology Professional Skills Certificate Course prepares you to write the Reflexology Association of British Columbia professional standard exam and apply for professional membership with the Reflexology Association of Canada.
This course has also been accredited by the College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia for their Continuing Education and Professional Development program.

SOME COMMENTS THAT ACCOMPANIED THE EVALUATIONS:
“I appreciated the school part done in 3 days… I appreciated while you taught us you made us do the work so we were learning and practicing all at once. I was able to come away & remember it so well because of that. I also liked the cost, it was the most reasonable I found!”
“The student practicum was great. It was good to have the opportunity to work in a professional environment. The evaluation at the end of the course was also valuable in cleaning up any areas that needed tidying. It’s nice that it isn’t rushed, and whatever time is needed is taken. The notes are great and very thorough.”
