Advanced Hand Reflexology

Course Overview

Many reflexology courses often provide only a brief overview of hand reflexology, overlooking its significance in a client's holistic reflexology experience. However, we believe it to be an essential part of any comprehensive reflexology practice. Hand reflexology not only enhances the overall treatment but also expands your range of reflexology options, benefiting both you and your clients.

Our advanced hand reflexology course is tailored for professional reflexologists seeking to elevate their skills. This comprehensive training day is thoughtfully structured, encompassing both theoretical and practical aspects. By the end of the course, you'll have the confidence and knowledge to offer hand reflexology either as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with foot reflexology.

Course Syllabus

You will learn the following on this one day advanced hand reflexology course:

  • Hand Anatomy and Physiology: Explore the intricate anatomy and physiology of the hand, providing a solid foundation for understanding hand reflexology.

  • Benefits and Effects of Hand Reflexology: Delve into the numerous benefits and effects that hand reflexology offers, both to the practitioner and the client.

  • Palmistry and Hand Analysis: Learn how to read the hands, uncovering insights that can enhance your hand reflexology practice.

  • Reflex Location Mastery: Develop proficiency in locating key reflex points on the hands, a crucial skill for effective hand reflexology.

  • Spinal Tilt and Its Role: Understand the concept of spinal tilt in hand reflexology and how it contributes to the overall experience.

  • Theory and Practice of Hand Reflexology: Gain a deep understanding of the theory and principles of hand reflexology, and apply this knowledge through hands-on practice. The course includes a detailed hand reflexology routine and reference to a hand reflexology chart for comprehensive learning.

About Your Tutor(s)

Yvonne Lockhart

Holistic Tutor

After completing diplomas in Massage Therapy, Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Indian Head Massage in 1999, I spent 5 years in a managerial role working on board Carnival Cruise Lines and then as a spa trainer at a 5 star hotel in the Cotswolds. I now run my own successful practise dedicated to using only organic products and treatments and since taking up teaching in 2007, it has become my passion to give therapists the proper tools to excel in the field of holistic therapy.


I’d just like to say how much I enjoyed the course yesterday. It was a lovely relaxed setting and Yvonne is a fantastic teacher, very patient with a lovely manner. I would definitely recommend your academy to anyone wanting to train in Reflexology or massage. 

Faye - Advanced Hand Reflexology | May 2022

Please pass on my thanks to all the staff and tutors, especially yourself (Olivia), Annette, Yvonne, Yvette and Chris. It’s your combined effort that got me there so quickly. The Thursday nights really helped build my confidence. You all also ignited my passion for reflexology and making a difference in people’s lives through my treatments. It’s been life-changing for me to find something that I enjoy so much and it isn’t in the least bit stressful.

The flow of work was very good, broken into manageable chunks. Annette is a great tutor and our group was well supported. I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 weeks with the college

Annette is awesome, her knowledge is vast and her experience really adds to the learning. The atmosphere is so relaxed and the mix of theory and practical learning covers all the learning styles and keeps the energy during the day from dipping. Possibly some social element built in for networking

-Student wished to remain anonymous | L3 Reflexology | Sept 2019

A very balanced mix of theory and practical taught in a relaxed but methodical manner. The academy is very welcoming and it feels like you belong to a lovely group of people that will remain to be supportive during your training and beyond
