One of the attractive features of reflexology is how simple it is and consequently, how easy it is to learn. Most people find the techniques quite easy to perform. Our foot and hand courses teach the internationally recognised thumb and finger walking techniques. Once a person has learned the techniques and how to apply them, they are able to perform reflexology competently, and, can anticipate that the people that they work on will be delighted with the results. It is our promise that upon completion of any of our basic courses you will be able to practice reflexology competently.
However, it is my belief that reflexology is essentially an intuitive healing art. Consequently, at this point the learning has only just begun. Developing one's intuitive sense of performing reflexology is a life long process for everyone, and , people will vary in the speed of this development.
Similarly, there are a lot of people practicing reflexology, all of whom have developed their own knowledge of reflexology. These reflexologists can also be a rich source of new knowledge for students.
At the same time, there are a lot of areas of expertise outside of the actual application of the techniques that will enhance a reflexologists performance and success. For example, listening and communication skills, or, "people skills", and, knowledge of other healing modalities. If you are practicing in a "professional" capacity, then bookkeeping, record keeping, knowledge of medical terminology, marketing, networking, public speaking, and article writing can all be of valuable service. Our Advanced Reflexology: Professional Skills Course is designed to get you started in most of these areas.
In any field there are new developments. We have made a conscious decision to keep abreast of the new developments within the field of reflexology - this has sometimes involved travelling to Europe. As a result, we are able to share themost valuable essence of these developments in our Advanced Reflexology: Clinical Skills Course. Chris Shirley is acknowledged as one of only two recognised tutors in North America for teaching the Vertical Reflexology Techniques developed by Lynne Booth - bringing her breakthrough knowledge and techniques to you.
