This 4-day course is designed for the actively practising RMT. The course will provide you with the knowledge and skills to add reflexology as a modality to your already existing RMT practice. As active RMTs, you are already pre-loaded with extensive training in anatomy, physiology, and pathology. This course is designed to streamline the certification process and build on your pre-existing knowledge.
100 Hours for Certification
NOTE: Students must complete 60 hours of hands-on treatments at their own pace after the end of this course. They have up to a year to complete this practical work and take their final exam at their own pace. Once this is completed, they are certified to bill clients for their treatments.
This certification, once completed, allows the RMT to be eligible to bill insurance companies (when covered) in the separate category of reflexology. This will impact the RMT’s ability to earn more/charge more for their clients’ coverage. Not all courses offer a way for the RMT to earn more with certification.

Part Two 60 HOURS (60 case studies and charting)
The Reflexology student gains experience by performing and documenting 60 case studies. The student will arrange for their own case studies, approximately 10–15 recipients are required. Although the case study (practical) component is self-paced and students have up to one year to complete this practical work, it should not be completed in less than 3 months, i.e., it cannot be completed in less than 3 months as it would not provide enough time to effectively process all case studies.
The teacher is available by e-mail and telephone for consultation at any time during the practical case studies period.
The 2-hour written exam is scheduled privately with the instructor at the student’s own pace. Exam Fee: $100.00 paid directly to the course instructor. This is a one-hour practical spot exam upon completion of the 60 case studies. It is scheduled by the student with the instructor for a one-on-one exam. The written and practical exams may be scheduled to be completed at the same time.
