Centralia (CREA) Centres are the most amazing group of Reflexology Training Centres and Inspira Academy is a part of this Reflexology Education Authority Consortium teaching the most sort after Reflexology Practitioners of the future.   The Consultant Specialists ensure that the subjects you learn are written by the people at the very top of their field e.g. treating for cancer, menopause (female and male), treating babies, toddlers, teenagers, sub-fertility, male health, palliative care, and much, much more.  This is a qualification for Integrated Medicine which means that we teach you how to help your clients to help themselves by having a broad approach to health and healing, of course with the wonders of a reflexology treatment as the foundation for improved wellbeing.  Integrated also means being able to integrate a Toolkit of Techniques so that every person you treat has a bespoke treatment that is as individual as they are!

CREA Centres are unique which means that at Inspira Academy you will learn specialist techniques for a specialised qualification:  These are NOT available on any other Level 5 or University reflexology training courses.

1.  DuoPody:  The feet and lower legs reflect the body.   The body is made up of systems.  You will be able to treat every body system with anatomical detail reflected in the feet,  Supported with amazing teaching / learning aides with educational films for personal support in between classes.  The often dreaded subjects of Anatomy and Physiology are 'brought to life' and become exciting and interesting as each system will be taught at the same time as Duopody with the Consultant Specialists contributing 'real life' client scenarios so that the learning becomes relevant to being a Duopody Reflexologist.

2.  CALM:  Sometimes the intention to promote healing via the body's systems is not relevant, so we teach you to recognise highs and lows of body energy.   Inspira Academy have instructed at hospices and hospitals with this technique with great CALMing effect for the recipients.   Also taught at USA Conference.  

3.  NEPIP:  Stress!  Why do we do what we do?  How do we combat the daily stressors of life?  Understanding the psychology of Health and Illness is the basis for NEPIP technique.  Add in mindfulness and consciousness, mix it together with the body systems most involved in our stress responses and you have NEPIP technique.   You will understand so much more about your clients ... and yourselves too ... get ready to be amazed!

... and there is more!

Level 5 Diploma in Applied Reflexology for Integrated Medicine

The Inspira Academy Training Centre is a permanent educational training facility based near Cardiff  

Reflexology training with Inspira

Reasons to enrol with Inspira Academy: 



  • Inspira Academy teaches the highest standard of Reflexology Training in the UK. This is the ONLY reflexology qualification that has a unit at Level 6

  • Access to the UK's authorised and fully regulated Level 5 Reflexology under the OFQUAL  framework  

  • The Level 5 Diploma in Applied Reflexology for Integrated Medicine is assigned as an OTHM Specialist Qualification

  • The qualification has been designed, developed and improved from the highly successful Agored Cymru Level 5 Diploma in Practitioner Reflexology and was moved from Agored Cymru to OTHM in January 2023, to further enhance the learning for the student with the addition of 3 more specialised Units.  All raising the standards even higher 

  • Your depth of learning both practical and theoretical will give you the confidence and knowledge to converse with the medical profession and scientists.  You must understand the theory, but our main thrust will always be on the practical application of what you learn.  With over 180 hours face to face with your tutor/teachers, you will do more reflexology (and be treated too of course) than many courses offer as total hours!

  • Inspira Academy Tutors all have reflexology clinics and they are innovative and continuously striving to improve their own practices and share advancements with students.  For example,  over time advances have been made and evidence has shown that treating with both hands and both feet simultaneously with Duopody (to reflect the whole body) is a truly holistic approach to promoting and facilitating improvements to the health of body and mind

  • Duopody Reflexology is delivered as part of a module for Doctors studying for a Masters in Pain Management, as the University and the University Hospital have endorsed Duopody Reflexology (and not any other reflexology method) so that Doctors understand that sometimes there is a need to refer their patients ... to a Duopody Reflexologist!  Enrol now to be on the first Duopody Directory which will be a worldwide - a global Register

  • Inspira Academy (Cardiff) is the ONLY centre in South East Wales with great connections to the rest of the UK

  • The minimum requirements for reflexology practice have been used in the qualification design, with a starting point based against the Core Curriculum for Reflexology and the Skills for Health NOS's.   This level 5 qualification develops much further and is designed to extend learners range and accountability in reflexology practice, and to develop progression opportunities in a clinical / professional environment.

  • Like other Level 5 Diplomas, the Level 5 Diploma in Applied Reflexology for Integrated Medicine has parity with the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) at Level 5, but please note that the EQF is only a comparison framework for levels and does not endorse, accredit or recognise any qualification.   This OTHM qualification is the only UK reflexology qualification recognised by the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) and automatically attracts 60 credits which are fully transferrable not only in Europe, but in many other worldwide Countries as well.  *2 UK Credits = 1 ECTS Credits

  • The Level 5 course is 100% quality assured internally by Centralia Reflexology Education Authority (CREA) and externally quality assured by OTHM to an exceptionally high standard

  • Sector - Nursing and Subjects and Vocations Allied to Medicine and is a full 120 credits in line with a university year which also attracts 120 credits per year, ensuring a smooth transition for progression to degrees with Recognised Prior Learning (RPL) with the requisite number of 120 credits 

  • The qualification has been designed to ensure that the learning is progressive and along with base and foundation techniques it also encompasses advanced practical and advanced conceptual knowledge

  • New! A unique treatment routine specific to Stress and this will only be available to students studying on the OTHM Qualification (no longer available on the Agored Cymru Level 5 qualification).   This is a truly Unique Selling Point (USP) when qualified

  • Inspira trained reflexologists go on to work in many areas including corporate work, NHS - hospitals, hospices, health centres, as well as private practice

  • Inspira Academy has been accepted as a Member School of RiEN (Reflexology in Europe Network) and CREA are also organisation members

  • Very important ... we care about each and every Learner ... all our Tutors had "other jobs/careers" and then studied reflexology at Inspira Academy and changed their lives. They know the route isn't always easy, but they all got there and will help you get there too.  Our support wont end with your training.
