Professional Reflexology Training Course / Continuing Education Award in Reflexology

Course Content

The Cardiff Met Centre for Complementary Healthcare, offers 3 professionally accredited and recognised training pathways:

  • Holistic Massage
  • Clinical Reflexology
  • Clinical Aromatherapy 

We are a centre of excellence for the provision of education and training in Complementary Healthcare. The Centre is fully equipped with audio visual and other teaching aides, the latest electric hydraulic massage couches, portable couches, massage chairs and 12 curtained cubicles.

In keeping with the House of Lords Select Committee Report on Complementary and Alternative Medicine in 2000, which highlighted the need to increase the evidence base for therapies, all our programmes have a strong focus on research-based theory. All students are encouraged and supported to be research aware.

All students have access to the Cardiff Met library and IT facilities to support their learning.

Clinical Reflexology
Alongside practical skills, students will study anatomy, physiology and pathology, introductory research skills and entrepreneurial skills for complementary therapists. There will also be an opportunity to work with clients within the university’s complementary healthcare clinic.

This suite of modules aims to develop in students the necessary knowledge, understanding and clinical skills for professional reflexology practice, recognised by the Association of Reflxologists (AoR), so that they may operate professionally, effectively, ethically and reflectively in the local, national and global market

For a more detailed overview of the content for each module, please contact Julie Duffy by email or book an online meeting.


  • Successful completion of the all modules will enable the student to practice as an IFPA registered Aromatherapy Practitioner.
  • Following study of further credits at Levels 4 and 5, students may also apply to progress onto any of the Higher Education Pathways, including the BSc (Hons) Complementary Healthcare (with Practitioner Status).
