Practitioner Selection

This is a guide we developed while working on a research project with Columbia University. It is meant to give the consumer some perspective of skill level. It is not a definitive guide. The self taught can have very skill hands. Also educational opportunities are often scant for the reflexologist.

To gain some perspective about practitioner selection, we have listed levels of expertise as:

Level 1: The practitioner has

a. completed a course of study in reflexology

b. with a curriculum including a pressure technique that does not include use of cream, lotion or oil, i. e. thumb walking technique, applied to the feet and assessment by zones and reflex areas

c. has practiced professionally for two years

d. with thumb walking technique and assessment by zones and reflex areas

e. has a current practice of twenty face-to-face client sessions per week

f. with thumb walking technique and assessment by zones and reflex areas.

Level 2: The practitioner has

a. taken some classroom hours in reflexology

b. with a curriculum including a pressure technique that does not include use of cream, lotion or oil, i. e. thumb walking technique, applied to the feet and assessment by zones and reflex areas

c. has practiced professionally for two years

d. with thumb walking technique and assessment by zones and reflex areas

e. has a current practice of twenty face-to-face client sessions per week

f. with thumb walking technique and assessment by zones and reflex areas.

 

Level 3: The practitioner has

a. completed a course of study in reflexology

b. in any curriculum/technique
