NAR Students enjoyed their tour of East Nashville Community Acupuncture hosted by owner, Alexa (right). 


It is a peaceful environment to receive the benefits of an affordable acupuncture session.  After learning that none of the students had ever experienced it, Alexa let us all feel what it is like to have a very thin acupuncture needle inserted on a meridian point and it was painless. 


We are over that fear and had a great time.

Future Plans for NAR


Nashville Academy of Reflexology is presently offering an "on campus" program.  We are looking into expanding to a blended program that could include some self-study and online distance learning as an option for courses that can be adapted.  Be sure to check back on our progress with this concept and sign up on our contact list with a message about your interest in this option.

He reported that the experience was awesome.  We all can't wait to try it!
