Modules 1–2:

Foundation Course to learn the basics

Modules 3–6:

A more in depth look at the method to provide students with the information required in order to be able to practise as a professional practitioner. 

Lectures will cover a more detailed look at the anatomy and physiology of the system, specific disorders involving the system and how to apply reflexology in the treatment of disorders involving the system. 

For the practical sessions, the basic technique is expanded on to include pressure variations, additional techniques and the reworking of areas. The use and application of Hand Reflexology is also covered.  

Module 7:

The business aspects of setting up a reflexology practice plus a mock written test and a mock practical assessment in preparation for the Examination Day.

The course format takes into consideration material present in the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for Reflexology and the Core Curriculum for Reflexology published by the Reflexology Forum. The qualification offered is a private one though equivalent to those available for reflexology at level 3 on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF).


The cost of the course is £1975 (£1875.00 if paid in full in advance; £1475.00 if previously paid for Foundation course only; payment in instalments possible).

Each Module can be paid for separately in advance of the course.


No prior qualifications are required when applying for a course but it should be remembered that the diploma course contains a considerable amount of theory work in addition to practical work. It will be necessary to have time for home study and the required practical work between the modules.

You can contact the Bayly School between modules for any assistance required in connection with course work.

 "I enjoyed my training with the Bayly School so much that I was rather sad it had to come to an end. However, having passed the course I am now thoroughly enjoying my new career, confident in the knowledge I have to pass on to my clients. I would recommend the training again and again to anyone, whether they just have a general interest in, or really would like to become a reflexologist." Di, France read more...
