Bayly School Diploma in Reflexology

This is a Professional Practitioner qualification. Once achieved you can apply for your practitioner insurance, full membership of the British Reflexology Association and register with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council

This bespoke course (a unique feature of Body in Balance Training) is not dependent on student numbers and does not have fixed start and finish dates. The course is tailored to your requirements and can commence whenever you are ready to start.

Course Details

  • Courses run on request to suit a student's needs.
  • Courses are held in Kirkcaldy, Fife, Scotland.
  • Further support is available following the course via Skype.

Course Description

The practical elements of the course are taught face to face. The theoretical modules and your guided self-study are supported by online tutorials with tutor, Mariette Lobo.

This method of blended learning initially evolved as a result of the covid pandemic. However, it has since received very positive feedback from students, especially those who travel long distances to attend courses at Body in Balance Training in Kirkcaldy.

The course fee is £1,500 of which £500 is an initial deposit. This does not include the fee for the mandatory Anatomy & Physiology Diploma which you will have to obtain separately before you enrol on the Reflexology course. Body in Balance Training is affiliated to Essential Training Solutions and Gill Tree Training who provide excellent online diploma courses in Anatomy and Physiology. More information and links to both courses are available on my Anatomy, Physiology & Pathology page. Common and less common pathologies will be covered on the Reflexology course as an integral part of your Reflexology training.

Course fees are fully inclusive of all course content but do not include Bayly School theory and practical examination fees and student membership of British Reflexology Association which provides insurance for your student case studies.

You should also budget for the cost of equipment, uniform & kit. Prospective students should therefore consider a budget of at least £2000 to cover the total costs of studying for the Bayly School Diploma in Reflexology at Body in Balance Training.

Course content for each module for you to print is emailed to you shortly before the start date of each module.
