In this reflexology continuing education course, Laura Norman teaches us how reflexology can reduce pain, improve circulation, bolster immunity and provide a sense of balance, relaxation, and well-being. Reflexology works with subtle energy flows, revitalizing the body so that the natural internal healing mechanisms of the body can do their own work.

Through text and video, you will learn reflexology techniques (based primarily on the theory of zone therapy) to enable you to begin practicing on yourself and with others.

This course is designed to provide sufficient knowledge to begin safe practice within the scope of personal needs or licensure qualifications of the certified health practitioner.

This course far exceeded my expectations. Very informative and easy to understand. I've had other reflexology courses but none competed with this one. I've always added some reflexology with my massages but now am very excited to add more moves. My clients will be thrilled.


Great course - well presented!! I learned a lot from all the wonderful material you sent with the course. The book was very easy to read, follow and understand. And, I love the DVD and charts that came with the course. Yes, I will definitely incorporate into my practice!! Thanks!


This was an excellent course with not only the well written book, the charts, and the instructional DVD. The DVD made it real since I could practice along with Laura Norman while she was working. I am very pleased with this course.

C. Carbone, LMT, NCTMB, IMA

I love the convenience of taking the quiz online and getting my certificate immediately. This course is excellent and will be an asset to my career as a massage therapist. I enjoyed learning about reflexology and will definitely use it in my practice. The DVD with the course is great and I love being able to go back and use it as a reference along with the wall charts. Thank you.

I have to say I didn't know what to expect when I ordered this course, it passed my expectations completely. I was so excited when I got the materials in the mail, that I stayed up half the night studying and learning the material. I couldn't put the book down. I am very excited to incorporate what I have learned not only into my professional life but also my personal life. Thank you so much for offering this course.

I was introduced to Reflexology in massage school. Being able to learn at my own pace, in my own ways, with a thorough and well designed text gave me a solid understanding by the time I reached the DVD for practical application. I would recommend this course to those who enjoy independent study.

Tuwania Johnson

This was a very informative course. Very in depth.

Karen E. Martin, LMT

I thoroughly enjoyed this course, it is presented in a well laid out manner using language that is easy to understand. I appreciate the hand and foot maps included. I used them while watching the video for a way to actually "see" the zones & reflexes as they correspond to the organs. I am a visual learner so the video is a GREAT thing for me. I can watch it over & over use it while I practice the techniques.

Sheila K. Vincent, LMT

The course materials exceeded my expectations.

Excellent course, easy and informative to learn! Feet are so often not cared for, but contain so much vital connection to proper function of every organ. I Loved this course!

Richard Kucinski, LMT

This was a wonderful course- very clear and easy to understand. The text was so well written. I have other books on reflexology, but this one was easier to follow. The diagrams were clear and the extra laminated hand and foot charts are fabulous. I really feel like I got my monies worth with this course and also the polarity course. Thank you.

Ellen Feldman, LMT

This was an excellent course and the extensive material will long be a source of information.

Marjorie Rezvyi, LMT, NCTMB

I thoroughly enjoyed this course. The materials were excellent! The book is very well written with thorough explanation and lots of helpful illustrations. I really appreciated Laura Norman's unassuming style of writing. I think even someone with minimal anatomy background could even follow and comprehend. The DVD is excellent and the included foot chart are both helpful tools for further use. The book, also, will continue to be a useful reference- Also, the test questions were very organized by chapters from the book and very direct -- not convoluted "trick" questions. I am excited to work on the techniques and apply them in future work.

Linda Ann Finley

I would like to personally thank Laura Norman for her dedication in this field and for her broad viewpoint. I highly respect the fact that she included such in-depth knowledge and personal experience on the subject of Reflexology and its many applications.

Courtney Kraeger, LMT

Laura Norman's "Feet First A Guide to Foot Reflexology" was a clear and concise training manual. It was easy to read and to follow and the DVD was immensely helpful, showing the actual technique at work. I look forward to adding these techniques into my practice. I highly recommend this course.

Carol Joyce, LMT

This course was great. There is a lot of detailed information for specific ailments that I will be going back to again and again. As for the test, it was set up nicely where it when chronologically through the book which made it easier for checking answers.
