Meet the Instructors

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 Reflexology Registry and our school operates under the authorization of the Tennessee Higher Education Commission (THEC).


Our Mission

Nashville Academy of Reflexology is pleased to offer the public the opportunity to experience reflexology from its students during special clinic hours.​

Clinic News

  • 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 no more than eight students.  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, science, and techniques, anatomy, physiology, and pathology, the Tennessee reflexology law and ethics, and business practices and marketing.
  • We currently offer our Professional Reflexology Certification program on two schedules, weekends and evenings.  Those selecting the Weekend Schedule will attend class two  weekends each month for 9 months from 9:00 am – 6:00 pm Saturday and Sunday.  The Evening Schedule class will meet on Monday and Tuesday evenings weekly from 6 to 10 pm for 8 months, plus time off for holidays. 
  • Tuition for the 200-hour reflexology certification program is $ 3,750, plus a non-refundable
    textbook and materials fee of $ 375.  A payment plan may be arranged with a 10% fee on the remaining balance after paying the enrollment deposit and an initial payment by the first day of class. Contact Director Carol Ann Baily at
