The premise that all parts of the human body are connected to the feet via energy zones or pathways dates back many thousands of years. Using a series of compression movements on specific areas of the feet, the body’s innate energy is supported, stimulated, or calmed, with the intention of restoring balance, promoting well-being.
Our body has the unique ability to heal and restore itself. Reflexology encourages balance via a holistic approach taking into consideration the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
The BodySystems Method™ is a well-established approach to reflexology. Our approach enables you to be aware of the related anatomy and physiology you are affecting, how that body system supports and interacts with the other areas of the body and how best to support our well-being. We focus not only on physical concerns, but also the mind-body-emotional components at hand.
We follow this systematic and logical approach while remaining heart-centered to better assist the healing process.
Becoming proficient and knowledgeable, having developed a solid foundation you can then begin to customize and focus your technique, growing confident in your skill and trusting your intuition.
In this class you will
- Understand the history and therapeutic principles of Reflexology
- Learn the basic Anatomy and Physiology of the human body
- Become proficient in the hands-on application of foot Reflexology

Lesson Structure and Approach
This course is designed to present ‘digestible’ lessons and discussion while providing ample time for supervised hands-on practice and observation.
Each weekly 3-hour class will cover a specific body system, associated topics and allow time for questions and discussion. Classes typically begin with the study of the body system, its anatomy and physiology, and then observation and practice of the hands-on techniques.
Our program provides you the necessary time in between classes to absorb-digest, study, and practice the information from each lesson.
Since 1992, we are consistently refining our Reflexology program. We find this lesson structure brings students the greatest learning success while balancing all aspects of life.
As your guide and mentor in Reflexology we take pride in your success!

We understand life is busy. Missing more than 3 classes is not advised. Students should make every effort to make-up any lessons missed, whether from another student or scheduled one-on-one time with an instructor. Make-up lessons may be arranged with an instructor at an additional hourly cost of $40/hr. Typically, material from a missed class can be covered within 1-hour, one-on-one. Missing more than 9-hours of the class may result in delayed testing and course completion.
Study and practice outside of class are necessary and expected. Your family and friends will be very grateful! Gaining proficiency in any art and skill comes with consistent practice. Plan on reserving at least 4-5 hours per week, minimum, for study and hands-on practice.
Upon successful completion, you will receive your Certificate of Achievement. This certifies that you have successfully completed the Heal Center’s comprehensive Reflexology Foundations Course.
National Certification Program
This Reflexology Foundation Course along with the Advanced Reflexology Program fulfills the requirements set by the American Reflexology Certification Board (ARCB), an independent, not-for-profit certifying agency. Upon completion of the courses, students may then apply to the ARCB to receive the study guide and schedule in-person testing. We see a trend around the country, state-by-state, setting higher standards or creating licensing for Reflexologists. Requiring national certification via ARCB has often become the standard.
