The Academy of Foot Tapping Reflexology is THE place to learn reflexology with an emphasis on the holistic approach to health and wellbeing.
STEPS INTO REFLEXOLOGY TRAINING COURSE
The Course has been postponed to the Covid -19 Pandemic. We are hoping to return autumn 2020. We are taking names for those interested and a new date will be arranged. The course will take place alternate Sundays at The Sanctuary of Healing, Langho, Lancashire.
The Academy offers training with a “hands on” teaching approach that guides and nurtures you to develop the skills, knowledge, understanding and empathy to become an excellent reflexologist.
Tutor led experts in anatomy and physiology lead you on a journey through the bodies systems, how they function and what happens when the systems go wrong. Experienced reflexologists help you gain confidence and skills in “feeling” the physical and energy body through the feet so you can understand the causes as well as symptoms of disease and help the body and mind to function efficiently and encourage the body into a healing state and the mind into a positive place.
FOOT TAPPING REFLEXOLGY is such dramatic advancement in holistic reflexology treatments and therefore should form the foundation for all future reflexology training. PT 2018

CPD Training for reflexologists and reflexologist in training.
You will learn the tapping techniques and their application to your reflexology treatment, how they unblock quicker and with more depth and a look at emotional tapping to eliminate a client’s emotional pain.
In this workshop we will look at the emotional aspects of FTR in depth and examine the link between our emotions and energy, and how we can solve most emotional problems by changing our energy body. You will learn what the energy body is and why we can have such an effect with FTR, how to recharge your clients with positive energy and give them the “ZING FACTOR!” This is not only good for your clients, but also your business as they will recommend you to many more people. You will learn the revolutionary new “Meridian Cleansing Technique”.
This very gentle technique is especially good for people who are very sick or worn out by illness, depression or fatigue.
You will be taught self- help techniques for looking after your own energy body.
As therapists we spend all our time looking after other people and rarely look after ourselves the way we should. To give our clients the “Zing Facrtor”, we must first have it ourselves. You will learn ways to approach FTR with clients.
Therapists undergoing the full FTR training (FTR1 & FTR2) and passing the assessment can then be registered as a FTR™ practitioner and use the letters "AFTR".
