Fertility Reflexology Course
This comprehensive two-day course is designed specifically for Postgraduate Reflexologists who are looking to expand their expertise in supporting clients dealing with fertility issues. To enroll in this course, Reflexologists must have completed an Anatomy and Physiology (A&P) certificate as part of their initial Reflexology training. Evidence of qualifications must be provided before attending the course.
The primary goal of this course is to equip Reflexologists with the knowledge and skills needed to become a certified Fertility Reflexologist. This qualification enables practitioners to assist clients on their fertility journey and opens up opportunities for them to be listed on the website as qualified Fertility Reflexologists, allowing prospective clients to find them easily.
To achieve the ‘Fertility Reflexologist’ qualification, participants must meet the following requirements within one year from the date of course attendance:
Attend the entire two-day course.
Submit three sets of case studies, each consisting of three treatments.
Complete two written assignments.
Once these requirements are met, participants will receive a practitioner certificate and be registered on the website as a certified Fertility Reflexologist. This registration will remain active until the Reflexologist requests removal.
Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Provide effective Reflexology treatments tailored to support clients with fertility issues, including those with unexplained infertility and those undergoing Assisted

- Discuss various treatment options available for infertility, encompassing both conventional and complementary approaches.
- Apply practical Reflexology techniques specific to fertility clients.
- Recognize when to refer clients to additional support services.
The course curriculum covers both theoretical and practical aspects of fertility Reflexology. Key topics include:
- Anatomy and Physiology of the female and male reproductive systems.

Optional Case Studies:
While case studies are optional, some insurance companies may require them to demonstrate expertise in fertility Reflexology. Completing case studies can enhance your qualifications and credibility. Case studies can be submitted up to one year from the date of course attendance, and an additional fee applies for their assessment.
Upon completion of the course, participants will receive a Statement of Attendance for their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) records. This statement does not constitute a practitioner certificate, which is provided upon meeting all course requirements.
Students who have previously attended the course may rejoin at a reduced rate or attend the second day of the course focused on ART information.
This course equips Reflexologists with the specialized knowledge and skills needed to support clients on their fertility journey, making it a valuable addition to their professional portfolio.
