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.
Nashville Academy of Reflexology is pleased to offer the public the opportunity to experience reflexology from its students and graduates during special clinic and spa 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 8 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, comprehensive education that includes a business course that gives our students the tools to begin their careers successfully, adjunct modalities that can be incorporated within a reflexologist's scope of practice like aromatherapy and hydrotherapy for the feet, and an understanding of the health care field and complementary alternative health in order to interface with other professionals.
We offer our Professional Reflexology Certification program on two types of schedules. Students on the FASTRAC Weekday Schedule can complete the program in less than five months, three days a week (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 9a-5p). Those selecting the Weekend Schedule will attend classes two weekends each month and can complete the program in 10 months.
