  • Research: Make sure that you are thorough with your research on reflexology training. Check the American Reflexology Certification Board (ARCB) and accredited universities that have courses and certification programs in reflexology. Additionally, you may be required to get a license before you can start practising reflexology in various jurisdictions, so find out the requirements in the jurisdiction that you are interested in.
  • Read: Make sure that you are aware of the course requirements. Apart from the regular coursework including human anatomy and physiology and training in the field, ARCB requires at least 110 hours of hands-on instruction.
  • Choose: Get schools that you are interested in to send you their brochures regarding their course or look for the information yourself on their websites.

    Visit the school and try to meet the faculty to get a feel for the program. Get clarity on the number of hours that you will get to practice your skill, and whether it’s included in the course or included outside school. Always confirm whether all the basic requirements for licensing are met while enrolling your self in an online course.
  • Getting your license: Make sure that you follow the guidelines set by your jurisdiction strictly to avoid problems. A normal reflexology course will cover anatomy and physiology, business ethics, Easter and Western approach to reflexology, pathology and supervised clinical work. Find out whatever documentation you need to submit before taking the licensing exam.
