Nashville Academy of Reflexology is pleased to offer the public the opportunity to experience reflexology from its students during special clinic hours.
Nashville Academy of Reflexology (NAR) offers a comprehensive certification program to prepare the aspiring student to become a qualified professional in the health field of Reflexology. We believe preparation for a hands-on profession is best learned by hands-on instruction in a small classroom setting of 10 or less. For this reason, the curriculum of this certification program consists of one-on-one reflexology instruction, training, and supervised practice in person on campus and out in the field.
We are committed to providing students a well-rounded and comprehensive preparation for the reflexology profession. We focus principally on reflexology history and techniques, anatomy, physiology, and pathology, the Tennessee reflexology law and ethics, and business practices and marketing.
We offer our Professional Reflexology Certification program on two schedules. Students on the FASTRAC weekday schedule can complete the program in just 10 weeks going to class just three days a week (Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, 8:00a-4:30p). Those selecting the Weekend Schedule will attend class one weekend each month for 14 months from 8:00a to 4:30p Saturday and Sunday each weekend.
Nashville Academy of Reflexology is an authorized postsecondary institution providing professional career training to become a Registered Certified Reflexologist. Located just off Franklin Rd., a little south of the Old Hickory Blvd exit off I-65, our reflexology school provides a 200-hour professional certification program, a reflexology clinic open to the public, and community classes for continuing education.
Nashville Academy of Reflexology holds to the values and professional standards set forth by the Reflexology Association of America (RAA) and American Commission for Reflexology Education and Training (ACARET). Upon successful completion of our program a student will be eligible to apply to the Tennessee Reflexology Registry to become a Registered Certified Reflexologist (RCR) . Our 200-hour Professional Reflexology Certification program provides 125 hours of classroom instruction and 75 hours of supervised practicum. Students gain both the knowledge and skills required to take the national exam offered by the American Reflexology Certification Board (ARCB). Although this exam is not required by the State of Tennessee, it sets our educational standards for the student who wishes to attain this benchmark of nationally recognized excellence.
Foot and Hand Reflexology is a health enhancing art and science based on the principle that reflex points, supportive of balance and wellness for all systems of the body, can be accessed and stimulated through specific reflex techniques applied to the feet and hands. Reflexology is at the forefront of natural alternative therapies today. Current scientific research indicates that through the nervous system connections in the feet and hands, the brain can be alerted to imbalances in areas of the body that need attention. EEG studies show that stimulating these nervous connection points induces a receptive state of relaxation throughout body.
Certified Reflexologists are taking their profession into nursing, caregiving, spas, wellness centers, clinics, doctor’s offices, health clubs, and private practice. In the State of Tennessee, Reflexology is governed by the Health Related Board and our school operates under the authorization of the Tennessee Higher Education Commission.
