AoR Advanced Maternity Reflexology Module

4 day course

Sally Earlam and Kate Mulliss

The AoR, in partnership with Napier University and respected tutors, is delighted to now be able to offer suitably qualified reflexologists the opportunity to partake in Advanced Reflexology Modules for those who wish to take their learning to a more advanced level. These modules have been credit rated by Napier University and deemed to be at Level 8 on the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF). This equates to an English and Welsh Level 5 qualification, i.e. foundation degree level.

AoR Advanced Reflexology Module – University credit rating - 10 credits at SCQF level 8

This module serves to equip students with comprehensive practical skills in the area of maternity reflexology and advanced theoretical knowledge. It will cover relevant and current information with regard to maternity related issues from initial conception, through the 9 months of pregnancy and post-partum and will closely examine the physiological changes that occur in pregnancy, the importance of appropriate lifestyle advice for pregnant women and choices open to pregnant women about the birthing process. Proficiency in a variety of techniques and tailoring the treatment to benefit the individual clients will be examined and developed. Advanced Maternity logo

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Review and be able to describe the physiological and emotional changes that occur during pregnancy from early conception through the post-natal period.
  • Describe and be able to distinguish the role of conventional health care providers and the potential role of the reflexologist in supporting women during their pregnancy.
  • Examine and consider when it is appropriate, and when it may prudent not to perform reflexology on pregnant clients.
  • Adapt and modify reflexology treatments/techniques as necessary and identify when to refer onto the healthcare professional.
  • To confidently perform a range of reflexology techniques for a variety of common pregnancy symptoms and conditions.
  • Examine and review current scientific research in the area of pregnancy and reflexology provision.

The module will run over a total of 4 days being divided into 2 days with a 3 month break in between. There is pre-course reading that will need to be completed, a 500 word assignment outlining the maternity services available in their particular local area, and 3 case studies with 4 treatments on each client.

On successful completion you will receive a certificate with the University credit rating.

N.B. If you have completed Sally Earlam’s Maternity Reflexology course there will be an option later in the year to attend an additional 2 day course, submit an assignment and case studies to be able to receive the University credit rated certificate.
