September is a month when people start to look at going back to train and study something that they are interested in. Why not find something you are really passionate about?
The Irish School of Reflexology will start a new term of its own Practitioner’s Diploma in Foot Reflexology on the 12th and 13th of September 2020 at The Base Enterprise Centre, Stranorlar, Co. Donegal.
This is going to be a great opportunity for the people from the area who are interested in complementary therapies, want to change their career or expand their skills, to get involved and enrol for the new term this September. Enrolment is open now at www.irishschoolofreflexology.com
The Irish School of Reflexology provides professional training in traditional reflexology, which enables students to build their own practice or add to their existing health care practice.
The ISR is Accredited with the National Register of Reflexologists IRL. At the end of the year, the students will be awarded a Diploma in Traditional Foot Reflexology (recognised by all the major health insurance companies- VHI, Aviva, LayaHealthcare) and will be able to start their own practice, go to work in hospital, daycare centre, hospices, spas, and hotels.
“At the ISR we aim to teach every individual, not just the group, looking to specific ways to help each one of our students in this process in a way that is tailored exactly to them,” says Tatiana Grosso Lawless, Principal of the Irish School of Reflexology.
“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.
“The Diploma is part-time (one weekend per month) which means our students will only need to attend one weekend per month only. No previous experience needed.
“Part of our syllabus will be teaching the A&P in a way that students will use that knowledge in their treatment. Knowing how the body works will be very useful to understand how to help our clients when the body is not in balance or ill.
“We will be also covering the theory of Reflexology, holistic approach, practical work, and much more. We are very proud of the level of training we provide to our students and they seem to appreciate that.”
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
“The demand for Reflexology is growing,” Tatiana added.
“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 balance; and diet is important too.
“They start to realise 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.
“Our students really enjoy the year, what they learn about Reflexology and about themselves. They grow in confidence as human beings and the fact that they can make the difference in helping other people in such an easy and non-invasive way, it is so important for them. There is something truly amazing to be able to help others for living.
“The aim of Reflexology is just to let the body do the healing by only applying pressure to the feet. That is why reflexology is a safe therapy because the reflexologist doesn’t use any oils, gadgets or medications but just pressure on certain parts of the foot which will free energy and blockages. Then the body will do the healing.”
“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 and 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.”
“A strong focus during the course of the year 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. 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).
“Upon successful completion of the course, students will have the skillset and confidence to go into practice immediately. We will be also covering Maternity Reflexology, Infertility, kids, cancer, and introduction to hand Reflexology as well.
“Our treatment techniques, the original Eunice Ingham’s method, are what make us stand out from other schools.
“We are very proud to be able to train our students to become excellent Reflexologists. We do feel responsible for the proper development of each one of our students and to build their experience and knowledge during the classes so that they will be able to stand on that going forward.”
The new term will start on the 12th and 13th September at The Base, Stranorlar, Co. Donegal. Enrolment is open now at www.irishschoolofreflexology.comTags:
