 The Academy of Reflective Wellness

2023-2024 Syllabus

Where Reflexology reflects the art of science!

This is a comprehensive Reflexology education.

 

  • We will address body systems, how they interact

  • Why a Reflexologist needs to have this knowledge.

This education is aimed at those aspiring to offer professional services to their community. However, if you aim to address your family members for specific situations, you will also find this group most welcoming.

 

So much of what a client needs is never expressed in an intake form. TCM education will allow Reflexologist to address their clients more compassionately.

Dates assigned to specific topics will allow Reflexologists to review for CE's. Hopefully, you will be privileged to have some of those discussions as we build on our knowledge bases. It's always fun when that happens.

What would you expect from this course?

 

  • 256 hrs. contact class time/

  • 30 hrs. Documented sessions/

  • 14 hrs. of public relations and community service.

  • Each module will consist of 4 full days broken into 2 alternating weekends.
