What To Expect

Hybrid Reflexology Program

Foundations in Reflexology – 48 hours

In this introductory level you will join classmates for six weekly presentations held live via Zoom. Topics covered includes reflexology’s origins and theories, reflex maps and forms, indications and contraindications, the structure and function of the foot and lower leg, how reflexologists perform an assessment, sanitation and hygiene practices, and documenting client sessions.

In the three day practicum, participants will gather in the studio to put the Zoom lessons to good use! We’ll practice assessing the feet and gait, reflexology-specific techniques, body mechanics for both the reflexology recliner and the bodywork table, and practice a 30 minute foot reflexology routine.

Intermediate Reflexology – 96 hours

Intermediate Reflexology attendees will meet for twelve weekly presentations held live via Zoom. Each week we’ll explore the anatomy, physiology, and pathology of the twelve body systems through a whole-person lens. You’ll be invited to use kinesthetic tools such as a coloring workbook, modeling clay, or washable markers during the lessons.

There are two sets of three-day practicums for this level, each following a set of six Zoom lessons. Building on the foundations practicum, we’ll use our time in person to map out the reflexes for each body system, practice techniques and routines for the systems, and finish the final practicum with a full 60 minute foot reflexology routine.

Advanced Reflexology – 96 hours

Our Advanced Reflexology level will meet for twelve weekly presentations held live via Zoom. Topics covered include business planning, honing session documentation skills, injury prevention and practitioner self-care, structure and function of the hand and lower arm, anatomy of the ear, supporting special populations, and Eastern medicine approaches to holistic care.

There are two sets of three-day practicums for this level, each following a set of six Zoom lessons. In the first set of practicum days we’ll adapt our existing knowledge of reflexology techniques to the reflex maps of the hands and ears. In the second set of practicum days we’ll incorporate hot stones, moxa, ear seeds, and Eastern reflexology techniques. At the end of this level you’ll have a 60 minute foot routine, a 30 minute hand routine, a 15 minute ear routine, and the ability to give a 90 minute foot-hand-ear treatment.
