In this home study reflexology continuing education course, Laura Norman teaches us how reflexology can reduce pain, improve circulation, bolster immunity and provide a sense of balance, relaxation, and well-being. Reflexology works with subtle energy flows, revitalizing the body so that the natural internal healing mechanisms of the body can do their own work.

This reflexology program guides you step-by-step to:

  • Summarize the effects of reflexology and explain how reflexology works including role of the feet
  • Describe 15 relaxation techniques, illustrate how to hold the foot and explain key techniques and key areas of the feet
  • Prepare for a session including necessary supplies, outline of a complete reflexology session

Course Reviews

Linda Ann Finley

I thoroughly enjoyed this course. The materials were excellent! The book is very well written with thorough explanation and lots of helpful illustrations. I really appreciated Laura Norman's unassuming style of writing. I think even someone with minimal anatomy background could even follow and comprehend. The DVD is excellent and the included foot chart are both helpful tools for further use. The book, also, will continue to be a useful reference- Also, the test questions were very organized by chapters from the book and very direct -- not convoluted "trick" questions. I am excited to work on the techniques and apply them in future work.


This course far exceeded my expectations. Very informative and easy to understand. I've had other reflexology courses but none competed with this one. I've always added some reflexology with my massages but now am very excited to add more moves. My clients will be thrilled.

This was an excellent course with not only the well written book, the charts, and the instructional DVD. The DVD made it real since I could practice along with Laura Norman while she was working. I am very pleased with this course.

I love the convenience of taking the quiz online and getting my certificate immediately. This course is excellent and will be an asset to my career as a massage therapist. I enjoyed learning about reflexology and will definitely use it in my practice. The DVD with the course is great and I love being able to go back and use it as a reference along with the wall charts. Thank you.

I thoroughly enjoyed this course, it is presented in a well laid out manner using language that is easy to understand. I appreciate the hand and foot maps included. I used them while watching the video for a way to actually "see" the zones & reflexes as they correspond to the organs. I am a visual learner so the video is a GREAT thing for me. I can watch it over & over use it while I practice the techniques.
