The Academy of Reflective Wellness presents 2022-2023 Certification Dates

 The Academy of Reflective Wellness

East Meets West 300 Certification program 2022-2023

This is a comprehensive Reflexology education. We will address body systems, how they interact, and why a Reflexologist needs to have this knowledge. This education is aimed at those aspiring to offer professional services to their community. If you are, however, aiming to address your own family members for specific situations, you may find this group most welcoming.

So much of what a client needs is never expressed in an intake form. TCM education will allow Reflexologist to address their clients more compassionately.

Dates assigned to specific topics will allow for Reflexologists to review for CE's. Hopefully, you will be privileged to some of those discussions as we build on our knowledge bases. It's always fun when that happens.

PTSD
Depression
Anxiety
Grief

IBS
Pancreatitis
Blood Pressure
