  • Lisa, a certified reflexologist, took home study courses for continuing education. “It was great to choose courses to help with specific clients. The reflex maps, illustrations, and techniques are very good. I learned many new techniques to use in my practice. And, it was fun to learn while working at my own pace.”
  • John, a massage therapist, appreciated the in-depth description of of how to perform techniques and why. “In massage school we had a four-hour class in reflexology. My clients are requesting reflexology. The course on the Muscle System showed me how to refine my techniques to be more effective. Thank you for this master work on the subject.”
  • Adele, a hospital nurse, valued the clinical studies in the home study courses. “The respiratory course dovetailed with my work with respiratory patients in the hospital. These techniques work! Thank you for putting the therapeutic benefits back in reflexology.”
  • Sally, a grandmother, used the techniques in the Digestive System course to help with a newborn’s colic. “I was amazed at how fast the techniques soothed our newborn’s colic. We are all sleeping more peacefully. Thank you for sharing your insights and experiences.”
