Level 3 Diploma in Reflexology


About this course – NEXT COURSE STARTS September 2018


This course is taught as an attended course.

Reflexology involves the skilled application of pressure to specific points on the feet in order to restore balance to the body.  These points represent reflex areas which correspond to parts of the body.

This Level 3 Diploma in Reflexology (VTCT Awarding Body) training course is  comprehensive and practical.  You will study and gain the knowledge of the principles of Reflexology, and how Reflexologists practice.  You will learn the benefits and techniques of reflex areas which are found on the soles, the top and sides of the feet. Similar reflex areas can also be found on the hands.  Hand Reflexology can be used where it is difficult to use the techniques on the feet.  Reflexology is a simple and natural way to check and maintain health.

This course provides credits and units that are mapped to National Occupational Standards and the Reflexology Core Curriculum.  It is recognised by the main professional bodies including Federation of Holistic Therapists who provide insurance cover, advice and information and continuing educational programmes.

After graduating you will be able to apply for membership to this governing body and others as well as the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) – the UK’s complementary health register.

This course will give you a great foundation to be a fully qualified, accredited and registered therapist.

As an independent training school, we are not dependent on government funding, we understanding the training requirements necessary to become a competent, practicing, professional aromatherapist.  We can be flexible in our training methods and therefore respond accordingly to individual student needs.

All courses are personally taught by myself, Christina Lyne, an experienced Reflexologist and Trainer in Complementary Therapies.
