The Reflexology Professor


"I thought the Reflexology training was very comprehensive. This was the first bodywork training I had ever received, and I am grateful for Wendy Coad's professionalism and nurturing spirit. She equipped me with the skills and confidence to start my own practice." - Glen Parker, Event Coordinato

  • Reflexology is a holistic practice.
    It is so much more that the sum of its techniques. Its amazing concepts allow us to focus on the whole body while the work itself is applied to the feet, hands, face and ears. Like a holographic map, the feet, hands, face and ears act as a venue for the organs and systems of the body to subtly express themselves.

  • Reflexology is relaxing to receive.
    Most of you have already experienced this, so you know what I'm talking about. If you have never received a Reflexology session, I suggest you book a session today. Interestingly, about one third of my students who come to learn Reflexology have never had a session prior to training. They just know how good it must feel and want to offer that to themselves or to others.

  • Reflexology is easy to give.
    Sometimes I can't believe how easy this work is. I can work a long day of 8 -10 hours a few days a week and hardly feel the fatigue. I choose these hours because I can make more money working part-time than I use to make working full-time for someone else.

  • No fancy set up is required.
    Reflexology doesn’t require any special equipment. A bodywork table or a good lounge chair is preferred, but not essential for short sessions or infrequent work. There's no special room requirement because the client keeps their clothes on for the entire session. If you work professionally, then both table/chair and a separate space is definitely recommended.

  • Reflexology can be done anywhere.
    A session can be any length of time too. I've seen people relax right in the chair they were sitting on with having just a 10 minute Reflexology session. I've given Reflexology in restaurants and on planes to help soothe frazzled nerves and stomachs. Usually a session lasts 60 minutes although 30 and 90 minute sessions are also common.

  • You can give Reflexology to yourself and receive the benefits.
    How great is that! You can experience all the same benefits. Okay, the relaxation is not quite as deep but the other benefits are equal. Sometimes it's even better to work on yourself because you can do shorter sessions more frequently - therefore maintaining a consistent support for yourself. The hardest thing is to not fall asleep while working on yourself. Reflexology is an excellent way of relaxing the whole body.

  • Reflexology is unique and unlike any other model.
    There are many bodywork models that work with “energy” concepts, i.e., meridians, chakras, etc. Others address the feet, hands, face and ears by focusing on the tissue on site, i.e. massage, dermatology, esthetics, podiatry, etc. But NONE use the mapping system of the body with the same
    anatomical accuracy that the Reflexology maps have.

  • Reflexology is easy to learn.
    The Reflexology Prof's system is exquisitely laid out so that just about anyone can learn it and provide top quality work. This requires training and practice, but with that you have a system for health support that will be with you for life.
    It just doesn't get any better, or easier than that.

  • In proportion to the cost of training versus it's effectiveness, Reflexology wins hands down.
    It's the best place to start your career. Yes there are more expensive and labor intensive bodywork trainings, but Reflexology will relax the body and relieve stress as well as any and
    better than most. It's definitely the easiest to learn and fun to do!

"Wendy - your passion & energy are contagious. Keep on spreading your infinite wisdom. Thank you for being a great mentor…." –Marie

That’s it, just 5 techniques to get all the work done. And, that’s all you need. When done right, nothing is easier than Reflexology.

No need to use a lot of effort or strength, although having a range of pressure applications is important. You'll achieve that and more with good body mechanics, and good ergonomics. It’s that simple.

The first, most basic and widely used technique in Reflexology is called ‘thumb-walking’. This technique is original and specific to Reflexology only and not inherent in any other bodywork method.

The remaining 4 techniques are variations on the basic thumb-walking:

The second is called ‘flexion on a point’.

The next is called ‘rotation on a point’.

The fourth technique is called‘hook and back-up’.

And the fifth is called ‘finger-walking’.

One other technique that’s very popular, especially on the fingers and toes is a combination of both thumb and finger-walking.

These 5 techniques are all you need. If you do them correctly, you can do as many sessions as you want. The keys are good body mechanics, and good ergonomics while doing the session.

Thank you for being a fab teacher and easing me back into my first steps as a student again. You make learning fun and respectful." –J.B.
