Customer Reviews:

“I really enjoyed this course, and feel like I learned a lot. I appreciated the longer videos, which helped demonstrate how to actually perform the reflexology techniques and see what I was supposed to be doing. The reading and terminology was easy to follow. …I enjoyed the material/quiz coverage, and the balance of video demo and reading material. It seemed to be pretty thorough as well… .” Rebecca H.

“I have taken this course, and greatly enjoyed it. It was informative and easy to follow. I thoroughly enjoyed the time spent taking this course.” Jennifer B.

“All the information is presented in a wonderful way – the sections are short enough as to not be intimidating, and easy to read and understand as to retain the information. The video clips are great – I particularly liked the one about precautions, where Meade brings up the point that a practitioner is an authority figure, and people will take you at your word. I thought that was an excellent way of getting the point across for a practitioner to be honest and responsible in their work.” Nicole W.
