” I only really became interested in reflexology after my Mam was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2018. After chemotherapy.. it looked like it was back. After 6 reflexology treatments the Doctors confirmed that it was gone and that was it, I was sure that the reflexology played a part in that result. The Teacher that treated my Mam also teaches here and I knew that the training would be excellent. Sharon keeps everyone up to date and the course is very well run yet comfortable. I travel from Donegal each month as I know it is the best course around and the group are just lovely…highly recommend” Niamh, Donegal.
The course is one Sunday a month for 8 months. The delivery is structured to give sufficient time to complete the theory and practical elements. Home study and reflexology practice is essential before the next session. Students will have access to online notes and Tutorials.
For class time no. However, for your end of year exam you will be required to wear a white tunic, black trousers and black shoes. Comfortable smart clothing is recommended for classes. We find that students prefer to wear a black tunic as they feel more professional during their training.
Yes. The initial deposit of 200 Euro will secure your place, this is non- refundable. Payment plans have been set up for 300/250 Euro per month with the exception of December and January as these are difficult financial months. All fees must be paid by March to be eligible to sit the exam.
