Study Reflexology with Amy Kreydin! Whether you wish to explore this modality and how it can support you and your family’s wellness goals, you want to expand your offerings as a massage therapist or acupuncturist, or you’d like to jump into a career in the healing arts this program will support you at each step along the way.
In this Professional Reflexology Certificate course students are prepared for a career as a Reflexologist. Classes are taught using a combination of theoretical lessons delivered live via Zoom, and practicum lessons delivered in person here in the Austin, Texas studio. Kinesthetic, visual, and auditory learning tools are used to assist your exploration of this hands-on modality in a hybrid environment where lessons on anatomy and physiology are delivered online and then put into practice in the studio with demonstration and return-demonstration of techniques, reflex locations, and routines. Adult learners feel engaged physically, mentally, and energetically as they move module-to-module towards graduation.
Reflexology is a gentle bodywork technique applied to maps resembling the human body located on the feet, hands, and outer ears. Students study the ten reflex zones, Reflexology-specific finger and thumb pressure techniques, and how to support internal organs and every body system through this unique modality. Reflexology is a deeply relaxing modality that promotes wellness from the inside out.
