Where You Study is Important


Where You Study is Important


Why in the world would anyone want to commit to a 300-hour program in Reflexology when you have a massage industry offering a continuing ed class for 24 hours?  Let's explore that question a bit, shall we?


While NCBTMB has announced they are offering a “national certification” in Reflexology, their test consists of a mere 70 questions, hardly enough to demonstrate a teste’s knowledge base.  But then how much could you be expected to learn in 24 hours, right?  A demonstration of abilities would not be required, nor would case study in any capacity, nor would continuing education.


While the 300 program provides a solid base of reflexology and prepares students to sit for their national boards, the shorter “version” would not.  ARCB (American Reflexology Certification Board providing national certification since 1991) provides a psychometrically approved test of 300 questions, and demonstration of practical application is required.  Beyond that the submission of 90 case studies are required, and continuing education is required to maintain that national certification.


So, there you have it.  You could take a short cut on a bridge that leads to nowhere, OR you can commit to excellence and LEARN Reflexology from a program designed to teach you just that!  Reflexology. 

The choice is yours.

Reflexology and the Brain-Gut Axis

What Happens in Vagus

Reflexology and the
Brain-Gut Axis

Save the date 
April 12-13
Salisbury NC


Perhaps you are aware that the Vagus Nerve sends 80-90% of it's communication to the Brain.  The Brain then assesses that information and communicates back to the Body making up the other 10% of the "conversation."  This makes balancing the Vagus Nerve a valuable part of a Reflexology protocol when addressing:
PTST
Depression
Anxiety
Grief
not to mention
IBS
Pancreatitis
Blood Pressure
just to name a few.
Discover the difference Reflexology can make!
This class is designed to familiarize you with anatomical and reflective locations of the Vagus Nerve and its branches. 
14 ARCB ceu's have been assigned to this education.
