Reflexology is a gentle, non-invasive therapy that encourages the body to balance and heal itself. It involves applying finger or thumb pressure to specific points on the hands and feet. These points are called reflexes and they reflect, or mirror, the organs and structures of the body as well as a person’s emotional health. In this way, the hands and feet are mini maps or microcosms of the body that can be used to encourage holistic healing.
This course will teach you everything you need to know in order to carry out a professional reflexology treatment. The theory is completed online at home in your own time before a practical training session is taken at a location of your choice. This means that GTi gives you flexible learning designed to fit in around your lifestyle. Full tutorial support is available throughout your learning experience.
The GTi Foot Reflexology course covers all the necessary anatomy and physiology which you will need to know in order to perform a reflexology treatment and so you do not need to hold a separate anatomy and physiology qualification.
The course also covers reception and consultation, the history and theories of reflexology, contra-indications to treatment and aftercare advice. It also includes detailed technique modules with clear images which show you how to read and interpret the feet as well as how to perform relaxation and pressure techniques.
The course is beautifully written and accompanied by images and a voice-over to give you the best possible learning experience.
The GTi Foot Reflexology course includes the GTi Professional Standards course, usually priced at £49 + VAT, for all students who have yet to complete this course.
Upon completion of the course, students will receive a certificate for a GTi Award in Foot Reflexology, accredited by the Guild of Beauty Therapists
