Certificate of Excellence in Reflexology
Everything is connected… What you do to one part of the body (or the world) you do to another.
Here at Southwest Institute of Healing Arts (SWIHA), we have an absolute passion for Reflexology, where our founder KC Miller’s Toe Reading program has taken the nation by storm. At our events, hundreds people line up to experience one of our combination Toe Reading & Reflexology sessions.
Our comprehensive 200-hour Reflexology program is one of the most thorough and eclectic in the country. This program may be taken to fulfill part of your primary specialty requirements within some of our degree or diploma programs, to enhance your professional status, or simply to further your own personal growth and development through continued education.
In this program, you will study the physical and clinical applications of Reflexology, as well as the emotional and medical intuitive realms. Learn about the 10 longitudinal zones, and how the organs and other body systems as represented on our face, ears, hands and feet can be influenced to promote healing. Once successfully completed, you will be awarded 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.
What Is Reflexology?
"Reflexology" (also called "zone therapy") is based on the theory that each body part is represented on the face, ears, hands and feet – much like a hologram. The Reflexology practitioner applies pressure to the feet, hands, ears, etc. with specific thumb and finger techniques without the use of oils and lotions. By pressing or stimulating a specific zone or area, the flow of energy, blood, nutrients and nerve impulses is restored and the zone is balanced.
Although SWIHA is careful to emphasize and reinforce the idea that medical diagnosis and treatment is not the specific goal of the session, in our supervised clinics we have witnessed relief of earaches, anemia, bronchitis, hemorrhoids, hiccups, deafness, emphysema, prostate trouble, overactive thyroid, kidney stones, and much more.
