How to become a reflexologist
You can get into this job through:

A course in complementary healthcare can include a number of different therapies, so you would need to check how much of it covers reflexology.

You could do a college course that will give you some of the skills and knowledge required for this role.

Entry requirements for these courses vary.
You may be able to start in this career by doing a Wellbeing and Holistic Therapist Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship.
This can take up to 2 years to complete and is a mix of workplace learning and off-the-job study.
Employers will set their own entry requirements.
- you could join an accredited register managed by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) or the Federation of Holistic Therapists
