Certification

We have partnered with Oshio College and now offer Reflexology Certification. Our course outline and description are below.  If you would like to sign-up for a Certification Course, please email or call. If you have Certification already from an accredited College, you are welcome to join the later Intermediate and Advanced Certification classes. Class sizes are kept smaller to ensure optimal learning, so spaces are limited. Courses run in the Fall, Winter and Spring semesters. We look forward to hearing from you.

Course Description

Learn authentic internationally acclaimed Asian and Occidental styles of reflexology from educator with over 20 years of reflexology experience.
Oshio College offers Canada’s only Western, Asian and Integrated Style of Reflexology Certification courses through an accredited college institution. These certification courses are for the individual who wants to begin their education and empowerment in holistic healing or for the working professional wishing to expand their expertise and add additional tools
to their practice.

Reflexology has been practiced for thousands of years to provide balance and to treat systemic maladjustment of the body, mind and spirit. World Health Organization acknowledges reflexology to be the “fastest growing therapies in North America today.”

Similar to how the human body can be viewed as a microcosm of the world, the foot can be considered a microcosm of the human body. This explains why treating a distal, seemingly unrelated area of the body can have therapeutic effects.

Occidental style Reflexology uses thumb and finger “walking” pressure, whereas Asian style reflexology uses the knuckle to strongly stimulate points on the feet to restore balance to the body’s systems. Both methods are highly effective on their own and very powerful tools when integrated. This series of certification courses will help you to understand each method and when it is best to interchange between these techniques to achieve the best result.

Our reflexology courses include 60 hrs in-class and practical experience for each style. This is necessary to feel confident in properly practicing reflexology with effective systemic results. The 42.5 hr advanced certification course uses an integrated Occidental and Oriental Medicine approach for a deep, thorough understanding of the body. Students will leave with a level of mastery and empowerment to take them further on the path of healing and wellness.
