The Level 5 Diploma in Practitioner Reflexology is awarded by Agored Cymru, and is made available at the Academy through our partnership with Centralia. The course covers 5 training modules, all of which are specific to reflexology.
You will learn the history and development of reflexology, from its ancient roots up to the present day. You will learn how reflexology affects the systems of the body, and study anatomy, physiology and pathology to help you to understand the treatments you develop for the clients you treat, both during the course and in your career to follow.
During the course, you will learn reflexology techniques for both the feet and the hands, how to conduct a consultation and how to formulate a treatment programme which is specific to each client.
As the course progresses, you will learn how to adapt your treatment for individual clients, including maternity care, palliative care and a treatment protocol for stress – NeuroEndoPsychoImmunoPody (NEPIP) – which is unique to Centralia Partner Centres and not available anywhere else.
As the most complete syllabus available in the UK, the Level 5 Diploma prepares you for the full range of clients you will encounter right from the start of your career in reflexology. You will gain in confidence throughout the course, and develop your treatment skills through your study clients (100 evidenced treatments during your training).
