Many people throughout the world seek the healing art of reflexology to find relief from health issues as an alternative or complementary therapy.
SWIHA founder and director KC Miller has a passion for reflexology along with her exclusive Toe Reading curriculum. At selected national and international events, hundreds of people have lined up to experience one of the combined Toe Reading and Reflexology sessions offered by KC.
Our comprehensive 200-hour Reflexology program is one of the most detailed and extensive in the country. This program may be taken to fulfill part of the primary specialty requirements within some of our degree or diploma programs, to enhance your professional skillset, or to further your own personal growth and development.
In this program, students learn the physical and clinical applications of reflexology, as well as the emotional and intuitive. Students study the 10 zones, and learn to manipulate areas of the face, ears, hands and feet to heal organs and other systems of the body. Graduates earn a Certificate of Excellence showing completion of 200 hours of specialization in the field of Reflexology.
* NOTE: Certificates of Excellence are not necessarily designed to serve as stand-alone vocational training and may not prepare you for gainful employment if taken independently of a diploma or degree program.
Reflexology, also known as zone therapy, is based on the principle that an image of the body is represented on the face, ears, hands and feet. Reflexology practitioners apply pressure to these areas–and particularly to the feet–with specific thumb and finger techniques. By pressing or stimulating a specific zone, the flow of energy, blood, nutrients and nerve reflexes are restored and balanced.
SWIHA is careful to emphasize and reinforce that medical diagnosis and treatment is not the specific goal of reflexology. However, in our supervised clinics we have witnessed individuals find relief of ear aches, anemia, bronchitis, hemorrhoids, hiccups, deafness, emphysema, prostate trouble, overactive thyroid, kidney stones, and other issues.
Students in the Reflexology Certificate of Excellence program study beginning through advanced Reflexology, including pathology and assessment, balance and being, emotional healing, polarity, aromatherapy, Thai massage, toe reading and more.
