In this 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.
Through text and video, you will learn reflexology techniques (based primarily on the theory of zone therapy) to enable you to begin practicing on yourself and with others.
This course is designed to provide sufficient knowledge to begin safe practice within the scope of personal needs or licensure qualifications of the certified health practitioner.
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.

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.
- Sheila K. Vincent, LMT
This course was very educational for me enlightened my understanding to the body as a whole. Would like to take other courses to advance my knowledge in the Healthcare field. Wish I had came across this course sooner, but better late than never. Will recommend to others of like subjects.
- Tuwania Johnson
I have to say I didn't know what to expect when I ordered this course, it passed my expectations completely. I was so excited when I got the materials in the mail, that I stayed up half the night studying and learning the material. I couldn't put the book down. I am very excited to incorporate what I have learned not only into my professional life but also my personal life. Thank you so much for offering this course.
- Angela Till, LMT
This was by far the best text book for reflexology. Laura Norman's writing style along with the demonstration and DVD was more than a review for me. It was crucially insightful. This has been my favorite course thus far. Thanks!
- Asher Johnson, CMT, NCTMB
This was a simple, straight forward course that anyone can use. The descriptions and techniques described in both the book and video, can be applied by anyone, not just health professionals. I will definitely be applying it in my massage and energy healing practice as well on my friends and family.
- Justice Bartlett, LMP
I was introduced to Reflexology in massage school. Being able to learn at my own pace, in my own ways, with a thorough and well designed text gave me a solid understanding by the time I reached the DVD for practical application. I would recommend this course to those who enjoy independent study.
- Fred Isom, LMT, NCTMB
This course has exceeded my expectations! The text was clear and informative. I feel confident in the knowledge I've gained and look forward to more courses from your Institute. Thank you for a great class.

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.
