International Institute of Reflexology (UK)

Hi,

I'm looking to start my diploma in reflexology in September, was just wondering if anyone has studied with the IIR (UK)?

Can't seem to find any reviews on the place and wanted to know if the course is any good

Cheers in advance!

I am a Reflexologist but I did not do that particular course.. Mine was ITEC.. I initally also took the Reflexology Associations course.. But found it lacking in A&P.

The problem is as with all Complementary Therapies, that there are some many people qualified that it is almost impossible to make any kind of living from it.. When you start the course be aware they want maybe 150 case studies of practical treatments documented and signed off...This is all at your own expense and you will have to travel and carry a large amount of equipment.. You have to do these gratis...
They will talk to you about 'Therapy swops'.. This is also not very practical... I paid out a lot of money for equipment and courses and exams and registration not to mention insurance.. Business cards and uniform etc

It is unlikely you will recoup the expenses..Sorry to be a bit of a damper on the subject, but you do need to know the reality..

How can you do an online course in a subject that requires you to do hands on work on a huge amount of patients and record case studies learn anatomy & physiology. ethics. business practices etc.. You need to kow exactly how much pressure to exert to illicit a reflex response..

I too am looking for information in becoming a certified reflexologist. I took Reflexology 1 last year but I haven't followed up with practice. Technically I am already licensed to massage the up the arms and up to the knee (hands/feet), but I would prefer becoming more experienced in Reflexology before I actually start offering it as a service for my clients. I'm in the US.
