Susie Jennings School is one of the few schools in the UK to have been selected to be a Partner Centre with Centralia and to offer the Level 5 Diploma in Practitioner Reflexology. This is the highest level of Reflexology training available in the UK.
This course provides credits and units that are mapped to National Occupational Standards and the Reflexology Core Curriculum. It is recognised by the Association of Reflexologists (AoR) and Professional Reflexology (PR), the two best known and respected professional Reflexology membership organisations in the UK. Both offer specialist insurance cover, provide advice, information services and an ongoing educational programme.
After graduating, you will be eligible to join both Professional Reflexology and the Association of Reflexologists.
As an independent School, not reliant on government funding, we understand the training and requirements necessary to become a competent, practicing, professional reflexologist. We can be flexible in our training methods and are therefore much better able to respond to individual student’s needs.
There are many schools, colleges and organisations offering various courses, qualifications and styles of training which can be very confusing when trying to choose the right Reflexology course. This Level 5 course is to a much higher standard than is provided by the basic Level 3 Diploma course.
There are no exams! As you progress through the course you will be continually assessed in the practical and theoretical aspects. You should set aside approximately fourteen to sixteen hours per week to work on home assignments which will include detailed case study work. We provide a recommended reading list at the beginning of the course and you will have exclusive access to our secure student area on this website.
Classes are held one weekend per month over a period of approximately 11 months. Each day runs from 9.30am to 5.30pm with a lunch break and a short tea/coffee break each morning and afternoon.
All 5 units are assigned to the Nursing and Subjects and Vocations Allied to Medicine Sector. They are mapped to the National Occupational Standards (NOS) and the current Reflexology Core Curriculum standards.
Unit 1- Reflexology skills in practice (level 5)
This unit provides the student with an understanding of where Reflexology sits within the overall context of complementary therapies, reflexology history and theories, and practical methods of assessing and treating clients. Students also learn Hand Reflexology in this unit and how to carry out a treatment.
Unit 2 – Incremental development of applied reflexology skills in practice (level 5)
This unit develops assessment and practical reflexology skills and techniques. Students work on each other in class and undertake case studies at home. Throughout, you will be monitored, guided and developed on an incremental basis to Level 5 standard. We also study a subject that is unique to Centralia Partner Centres only – NeuroEndoPsychoImmunoPody (NEPIP) – understanding the psychology and pathology of stress and eustress and their effects on illness and health.
Unit 3 – Providing reflexology for specific conditions (level 5)
This unit provides an introduction to working in areas such as maternity and palliative care and an introduction to research and looking at a published research paper. Students will deepen their knowledge and further develop their skills and competence for using reflexology for specific conditions.
Unit 4 – Anatomy, physiology and pathology for reflexology (level 4)
This unit provides the underpinning knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology for reflexology practice. We cover how the pathologies of the body systems are reflected in the feet.
Unit 5 – Business skills for reflexology practice (level 4)
Students will receive guidance on how to develop a personal business plan, manage a reflexology business and we cover the professional and legal aspects of setting up and working as a self employed reflexologist.
The educational aims are to develop the in-depth knowledge and skill required to provide safe and effective treatments.
