The Donegal branch of The Irish School of Reflexology is launching a new term of professional training programs this September.
Tatiana Grosso Lawless, Principal of the Irish School of Reflexology shares this introduction to the course:
The NRRI’s accredited Reflexology school is coming back to Donegal this September. We love September because September is when we start the new term of our Practitioner’s Diploma in Foot Reflexology here at the Irish School of Reflexology in Co. Donegal.
We are always looking forward to meeting and greeting a new class as we know student who are interested in Reflexology and holistic therapies are always very dedicated, eager to learn the different techniques and understand how to use the Reflexology to help others.
Every month the teachers and the students can’t wait to get together to practice, learn and have fun. The 12 months of the course are going to be really enticing; a chance to learn about this amazing therapy, about your self and meet new like-minded people.
The new term will start on the 12th and 13th September at The Base, Stranorlar, Co. Donegal.
Last year was a great year of growth for the Irish School of Reflexology. We had so many rewarding moments and our students are the reason why we try our best year after year. It is such a privilege to meet so many lovely and enthusiastic people and teach them this Amazing Therapy: REFLEXOLOGY. We are looking forward to starting the course as we will be able to share our experience with all our new students and grow together.
‘The school is affiliated with the NRRI (National Register of Reflexologists Ireland www.nationalreflexology.ie) and fully Accredited. 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 new term is starting on the 12th and 13th of September 2020 at the Base Enterprise Centre – Stranorlar, Co. Donegal. Participants only have to attend classes one weekend per month. Enrolment is open now at www.irishschoolofreflexology.com
At the ISR we are very passionate about Reflexology and that translates to our students too. Their enthusiasm to learn Reflexology makes our job so very rewarding and motivates the teachers to step up and be good examples for the students, combining good techniques and to be professional too.
We want our students to feel confident in their own practice so when they finish the Diploma course they are in a position to confidently and effectively help their clients with their own complaints and problems. Helping others to heal is our mission and the priority in everything that we teach.
A strong focus during the course will be on the practical side of Reflexology. We will be teaching approaches to TREATMENT including the pressure, the location of the points and relevant techniques to be used for different conditions and complaints. Our objective is that our students will be able to assist their own clients in addressing their health problems ( e.g. IBS, digestive system, trying to conceive or stress). The course is more than just a basic course.
We will be also covering Maternity Reflexology, reflexology for Infertility, Kids Reflexology, cancer, and introduction to hand Reflexology as well.
Upon successful completion of the course, students will have the skillset and confidence to go into practice immediately. Our treatment techniques, the original Eunice Ingham’s method, are what make us stand out from other schools.
The Ballybofey-based school is now taking enrolments for a new Diploma Qualification course beginning in September 2020.
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) which means students have to attend one weekend per month only.
At the end of the year, students will be awarded a Diploma in Traditional Foot Reflexology accredited by The National Register of Reflexologists IRL and recognised by all the major health insurance companies. Graduates will be able to start their own practice, work for Spas, hotels and more.
The Irish School of Reflexology facilitates beginners, post-graduates and practitioners in developing their skills and expanding their knowledge. It provides popular Refresher Courses for existing qualified Reflexologists.
Reflexology is an ancient Chinese natural healing method that works by applying gentle pressure to zones located on the feet. The demand is growing, according to Tatiana Grosso Lawless, Principal of the Irish School of Reflexology.
We only work with small groups [max. 20 students] and give one-to-one guidance under the supervision of trainers with years of clinical and teaching experience in the industry of complementary healing. If you chose to enrol in a training course with us, we will offer you a fascinating, challenging and very fulfilling journey.
Some of the modules are:
- How to use Reflexology to work on specific illnesses and conditions as well as the whole body
- How to set up your own Reflexology practice
- Maternity and Infertility Reflexology
- An introduction to hand Reflexology
- Anatomy and physiology- all the systems of the body. Understand order in order to understand disorders
- Nutrition and healthy habits
- How to interact with patients and manage their care
Reflexology is such an amazing complementary therapy to have. It is holistic which means it works not just on the physical body but it addresses any imbalances in the mind or soul.
I am sure we are all aware of the impact that stress can have on the general health of people.
Reflexology works on keeping all the energies (physical, mental and spiritual) harmonised at all times so that the body can heal itself and stay healthy. Reflexology is very safe and there are only very few contraindications to it ( unlike traditional medicine that can sometimes have a lot of side effects). Of course, because of surgery and medicine, we live better and longer; but people nowadays are more aware of the holistic approach. They know that the ‘new way’ ( holistic -or maybe not so ‘new’ ) of dealing with diseases or disorders can have great results in a more natural way addressing the real cause of diseases which may be not physical but spiritual or energetic. That is why many doctors and nurses are referring their clients to get Reflexology treatments as they know the treatments work and Reflexology doesn’t interfere with medications.
I consider myself very lucky to have trained to become a Reflexologist first of all because I was able to help my family first and then my clients in such a natural way, just by applying the pressure to the points in the feet and letting the body do the balancing. It is amazing to see how the feet reflect the overall health of the person you are treating and how effective Reflexology is on many conditions and health problems.
We tailor our teaching programme to ensure that the learning needs of each individual within the class group is fully addressed. The confidence in their abilities to help others the students gain during the year enables them to set up a successful practice.
Helping others to heal is our mission and a priority in everything that we teach.
Once our students start using the treatment themselves on their family and friends, they are quick to realise the healing potential of it and that makes their passion for Reflexology grow. There is truly something great about being able to help others for a living.
A past student of the Irish School of Reflexology said:
“The course is excellent both in materials and delivery of the information given to us. The structure of each weekend is balanced well to incorporate both practical and theory elements that provides the optimum setting for absorbing all the information given to us.
“Tatiana engages with every student to ensure there is complete understanding before moving on to another topic. Also having Tatiana to guide us through the practical elements is invaluable as we practice all the new techniques on each other. The fact that we are being equipped with the tools and skills necessary to think for ourselves is one of the best parts of this course as I believe that this will prove crucial when embarking on our own careers to ensure that we can treat the individual needs of every client that we meet.
“The course content is remarkably interesting not only from a Reflexology point of view but from a personal lifestyle also. I would highly recommend this Diploma to anyone who would like to embark on a career as a Reflexologist.”
Enrolment is open now for the new term at Base Enterprise Centre – Stranorlar, Co. Donegal. To apply or for more information please visit www.irishschoolofreflexology.com or call Tatiana on 0862071065.
