If you’re looking for a fulfilling new career that can work around your lifestyle, have you considered training as a Reflexology Practitioner?
Whether you are new to the health industry or wish to add to your range of professional skills, then The Irish School of Reflexology has what you’re looking for.
The Ballybofey-based school is now taking enrolments for a new course beginning in September 2019.
The courses are:
> Easy to fit into your work schedule and run at weekends
> Based in an easily accessible location
> Fully accredited with the NRRI
> Designed to train professionals to start their own Reflexology business upon certification.
The Diploma consists of 150 hours of tutoring in the classroom and the 60 hours of practical work that the students must do at home.
The Diploma is part-time (one weekend per month; Saturday and Sunday) and will cover A&P, the theory of Reflexology, holistic approach, how to read the feet, practical work and much more.
At the end of the year, students will be awarded a Diploma in Traditional Foot Reflexology (recognised by all the major health insurance companies) and will be able to start their own practice.
The new term is starting on the 7th and 8th of September 2019 at the Base Enterprise Centre – Stranorlar, Co. Donegal. It’s a part-time course, so participants only have to attend classes one weekend per month. Enrolment is open now at www.irishschoolofreflexology.com
“The demand for Reflexology is growing,” says Tatiana Grosso Lawless, Principal of the Irish School of Reflexology.
“More people are getting into Complementary and Holistic Therapies, because they start to understand that health is the results of a balanced life – mentally, physically, spiritual; and diet is important too.
“They start to understand that we cannot be healthy if one of these factors is missing. We cannot be physically healthy if our mental health is not there. Our patients find also they get more long-lasting results with the help of Reflexology and they came back because of that.
“At the Irish School of Reflexology, we provide professional training in traditional Reflexology that enables students to build their own successful practice or add to their existing healthcare practice.
“The sequence we teach is the Eunice Ingham’s sequence, which I learned from my teacher Sr. Brega Whelan, a real pioneer of Reflexology in Ireland. She has been practicing Reflexology since 1982 and I was lucky enough to be in her last class, before her retirement and it has proven to be very effective as we use it all the time in our practices.
“In our classes, we don’t teach a foot massage, but Traditional Reflexology! And it is our treatment what makes us stand out from other schools. Sometimes what is taught is more like a foot massage, but at the Irish School of Reflexology, we are very proud of our sequence.”
Tatiana added: “Helping others to heal is our mission and the priority in everything that we teach. We aim to offer our students a fulfilling learning experience and build confidence in their ability to help others.
“Our overall mission is to promote healing through the benefits of Reflexology.”
The school is affiliated with the NRRI (National Register of Reflexologists Ireland) and fully accredited.
At the end of the year, students will take exams to earn their Diploma in Traditional Foot Reflexology. Students are supported with regular assessments, practice and homework to provide them with the knowledge to succeed.
The course is a great opportunity to learn about Reflexology, meet like-minded people and make new friends. The standard of the training we provide is very high and the aim is to train professional therapists to start their own Reflexology business upon certification, to go to work in hospital, hospice and more.
A past student of the Irish School of Reflexology, who also works as a counsellor, said that studying reflexology has given her another way to support her clients.
“In my practice I would meet a lot of clients who find themselves experiencing anxiety on a daily basis. For these clients, they have found that talking therapy was a very scary place to be at first, and tried other options. The main trend I’ve noticed with them is that they all had tried reflexology, and found themselves enjoying the treatment, teaching them to relax and remove signs of sore heads, eye pressure, sore shoulders, back and leg tension etc.
“ISR has given me more tools to support clients but it has also taught me that it is really important to look after your own mental health and now I’m bringing it into the home where my husband and children are looking forward to me trying what I’ve learned on them, opening up communication.”
She added: “I’m really enjoying the course and having it in Co Donegal is great for the county. It is lovely meeting new people and seeing everyone so excited in completing the course. Everyone is so helpful and I’m finding the notes a great help in studying. Thank you, Tatiana and Denise, for a wonderful course!”
