• Exceptional Times = Exceptional Opportunities! 

    Reflexology Training can start again!  As there were 4 groups of students when lockdown began we of course have to make them our priority so that they can graduate and start their new and exciting professions!  But what this means is that we must delay our usual Autumn start date for new learners.   

    Early 2021 is when we will begin new courses both a weekday and a weekend course.  Dates are now posted for both the weekend and weekday courses ...  applications are already in, so please fill in yours to ensure that a place is available!   

    Inspira Academy has a dedicated training room and it is HUGE.  But we will only have a maximum of 8 students.   

    The Inspira Family have already put in place 2 metre spacing markers,  re-arranged desks for safety and our reflexology beds have been re-upholstered in material that is treated using anti-microbial technology giving a broad spectrum of efficiency against Viruses, Bacteria, Yeasts and Algae.  All students will be risk assessed and issued with full instructions and guidance to ensure safety within Inspira Academy Training Centre.   

    We are happy to tell you that Introductory Meetings are resuming at the Inspira Academy Training Centre.  The Training Centre has had several deep cleans, and all the relevant safety measure are in place and we will advise you of these prior to the meeting.   The next meeting will be a Sunday 6th December 2020 and will give you the opportunity to make sure that the Level 5 Diploma in Practitioner Reflexology is right for you, ask questions, meet your tutor etc!

    Once you have had your meeting and you have received a formal offer of a place, you can be assured that you will join the Level 5 Diploma in Practitioner Reflexology course and start preparing for a new and exciting future!

    Our awesome Tutors are raring to go ... we hope you are too.

Level 5 Diploma in Practitioner Reflexology

The Inspira AcademyTraining Centre is based near Cardiff 

Reflexology training with Inspira

Reasons to enrol on
the Level 5 Inspira course:


  • Inspira Academy teaches the highest standard of Reflexology Training in the UK
  • The qualification has been designed and developed from the highly successful Centralia Reflexology Mastership (incoporating Agored Cymru units at level 5)
  • Your depth of learning both practical and theoretical will give you the confidence and knowledge to converse with the medical profession and scientists
  • 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, originally reflexologists treated just one half of the body at a time (one foot at a time) and although this method is extremely effective, over time advances have been made and you will learn Duopody, which is even more effective and works the whole body (via both feet) at the same time - a truly holistic approach to health
  • Nationally and Internationally recognised and accredited course
  • Inspira Academy (Cardiff) is the ONLY centre in Wales providing the Level 5 Diploma in Practitioner Reflexology
  • 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.   The 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.
  • The Level 5 Diploma in Practitioner Reflexology has parity with the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) at Level 5
  • The Level 5 course is 100% quality assured and externally regulated by Agored Cymru to an exceptionally high standard
  • The qualification is under the Sector - Nursing and Subjects and Vocations Allied to Medicine - this is the only reflexology course in the UK under this sector!
  • The qualification has been designed to ensure that the learning is progressive and encompasses advanced practical and advanced conceptual knowledge
  • New! A unique treatment routine specific to Stress and this will only be available to students studying at Level 5 a truly Unique Selling Point (USP) when qualified
  • Inspira Academy has been accepted as a Member School of RiEN (Reflexology in Europe Network)
  • Read Testimonials from past students

And even more importantly ... 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.

"A turtle travels only when it sticks its neck out" (Korean saying)

  • Inspira trained reflexologists go on to work in many areas including corporate work, NHS - hospitals, hospices, health centres, as well as private practice
  • When you graduate, there is a Level 5 Practitioner Register which means that anyone looking for the most highly qualified Practitioners in their area can find you!

If you want to be assured of having the very best chance to succeed when you graduate, you have to train at an Inspira Academy!

  • Full support throughout the course duration
  • All tutors are passionate about their subjects and are all educated to degree level
  • Inspira Academy always provides excellence in training and all tutors stay at the cutting edge of new developments in the field of Reflexology and Health Care
  • On-going support after qualification ... your tutors will be there to help re-assure if you have any queries about any aspect of your clients treatments / well being etc. 
  • We hold Inspira Academy meetings to update with any new techniques and to share ideas and to meet with new and old Inspira practitioners!

Levels of training explained

  • Levels represent the difficulty of learning processes and the accompanying assessments
  • To assist understanding, a Level 3 Reflexology Course may be compared to an A Level whilst a Level 5 course could be compared to a Foundation Degree
  • For Example: You may study history as a subject at A Level or at Degree Level, they are the same subject but the Degree course will be more complex
  • No prior learning at lower levels is required to enrol upon the Inspira Academy Level 5 Course, but you will need to be committed to learning to the very highest standards
  • CAUTION! If you are looking for a regulated reflexology course, please ask the question - Does this course have a governing awarding body i.e Agored Cymru, ABCawards, City & Guilds etc and who are their regulatory body i.e. OFQAL, Qualifications Wales, SQA or CCEA.  If the course does not comply with these 2 facts, then it is not a sufficiently educationally regulated course!
