Choosing your Reflexology Training
The one word we hear more often than any other from people enquiring about courses is MINEFIELD!
There are many different Reflexology courses advertised on the internet, and it pays to do some research before choosing which one is right for you.
The Professional Reflexology Association (PR) is the only organisation to Affiliate Schools. These are chosen by the quality of their training only. They do not pay us to carry their advertisements or to affiliate them. This way we can guarantee you totally impartial advice.
All PR Affiliated Schools will give you high-quality training regardless of the qualification level at which they teach. They all provide the contact training needed to become a competent Reflexologist and PR is the only Association to insist on a classroom-based minimum. PR does not accept members from qualifying from short, fast track or distance learning courses.
Our advice is to avoid these if you want to practice our wonderful Therapy.
PR Affiliated Schools offer the following routes to quality training:
- The Professional Reflexology Practitioner Diploma (PRD)
- Level 5 Diploma in Practitioner Reflexology
- Level 3 Diploma in Reflexology.
All these qualifications will enable you to practice, importantly become insured, and give access to Professional Reflexology Association as a full member.
