Hand Reflexology

Hand reflexology is so often undervalued, with little time being spent teaching it on most reflexology courses. As a result many practitioners do not feel confident to use hand reflexology or may even feel it is not as effective as foot reflexology. However, historically western reflexology started with Dr Fitzgerald, a medical doctor who worked on the hands for pain relief, morning sickness and even as an anaesthetic!

Being confident with Hand reflexology is a wonderful addition to being able to work on the feet and is just as relaxing and effective! Hand reflexology can be used:

  • As a treatment on its own if time or space are an issue, as a taster session, or if a client has a preference for hand reflexology.
  • As an adjunct to foot reflexology and it can be used to check if a reflex is truly out of balance.
  • In addition to foot reflexology; finish with 10 minutes of hand reflexology for an ultimate reflexology experience
  • I suggest that all clients are given a few hand reflexes to work on as homework, thus adding to the effectiveness of the treatment and empowering them to take further control of their healing.

Course details Hand Reflexology Booklet

This course is very much a practical based day. After a brief introduction to some theory you will quickly move on to do a short hand sequence appropriate for a taster sessions or to use at the end of a foot reflexology session. In the afternoon you will practice a full sequence, this is a sequence that follows down the hand in a very logical manner to make the learning of this technique easier.

After the course you will also receive the Hand Reflexology guide and links to a YouTube video so you will be able to read more about hand reflexology and watch the videos as a reminder of the practical sequences.


Please note that these courses are for those already holding a diploma level 3 or above in reflexology.


You will receive a certificate for this course for 14 CPD points for AoR members, or 7 hours of CPD training for other organisations. You will also receive instructions on how to add my hand reflexology logo to your own website.
