Overview

Do you want to gain the skills necessary to provide reflexology treatments for relaxation and stress release? Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy method of relieving pain within the body based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears, correspond with different areas of the body.

What is reflexology?

Reflexology is a method of relieving pain within the body by stimulating certain pressure points on the feet and hands. This controlled pressure may ease the source of the pain. In the absence of any particular abnormality, reflexology may also be as effective for promoting good health and well-being and for preventing illness as it may be for relieving symptoms of stress, injury and illness.

What do reflexologists do?

Reflexologists work holistically with their clients and aim to work alongside allopathic healthcare to promote better health for their clients. Reflexology is based on a very old form of therapy. It is believed that the Chinese practised reflexology as long as 6,000 years ago and the process is even depicted in carvings within the tombs of ancient Egypt.

What jobs are there in sport?

If you thought the only job available to those with a sports and fitness-related qualification was as a personal trainer, you’re in for a surprise. While a career in gym instruction is varied and exciting, there are other avenues you can explore too.

If you dream of working with footballers or athletes, you could study sports psychology and learn not only what makes them tick but how to leverage their mentality to improve their physical performance.

Other pathways open to those with a qualification in sport include Sports therapists, choreographers, Health promotion specialists, Nutritionists, Fitness centre managers and Sports development officers.  However, some of these will require further study.

We’re firm believers in getting paid to do what you love. That’s why our quality, award-winning course materials are designed to equip you with the expert skills and knowledge to pursue your goals, whatever you’ve set your sights on.

The benefits of studying a sports and fitness course online

If time restraints are preventing you from leaping into a new career, home learning may be the key. By opting for an online course, particularly one with us, you’ll experience the same quality of education as traditional schools but from the comfort of your own home, at your own pace.

That means you won’t be held back by other students who don’t pick things up as quickly as you, and if you need more time to study a specific module, then that’s something you have complete control over.

What’s more, you’ll have access to one-to-one tutor support whenever you need it.
