The qualification comprises of 5 units:
HK24CY008 - Anatomy, Physiology & Pathology for Reflexology
What makes the L5 Diploma in Practitioner Reflexology completely different to any other regulated/formal qualification is that the subjects taught are all made relevant to reflexology! That may sound obvious, but many other Diplomas, University courses etc., have generic courses which results in the learners often struggling to understand how the learned information translates to what they are doing on the feet/hands/ears etc.
All the assessments will also be relevant to becoming a highly knowledgeable reflexology practitioner who will be able to individualise a treatment with understanding of treatment protocol set against medically pre-determined symptoms of pathologies, the assessments will include a WorkBook/Pathology Directory/Essays
HK24CY007 - Business Skills for Reflexology Practice
The unit that covers the business aspect is also specific to setting up and beginning a new working life as a reflexologist. When other qualifications cover business as a general/generic topic, the learner misses the opportunity to focus on what they will need on a practical level, as the majority of newly qualified reflexologists are self-employed and most often they are setting up a home working business. These specific needs will be a very small part of an overall business module, but are a very large part of the L5 Diploma Business unit, resulting in well prepared Practitioners who understand the challenges they may face as well as the huge rewards. Assessment includes a detailed plan of all areas that may influence setting up a new business as a reflexology practitioner.
HK25CY010 - Reflexology Skills in Practice
There are three units within the qualification that are reflexology based and in this first unit you will learn a firm foundation of all that is required in order to then build on the basic skills of a treatment routine. All 3 units are at Level 5, so you will immediately be learning to utilise critical faculties to analyse, to interpret, to evaluate etc. You will be highly supervised and will be observed undertaking four treatments under examination conditions on a study client. Other assessments include a Directory and the study and application of hand reflexology. Theoretical knowledge will also be assessed within this unit.
HK25CY009 - Incremental Development of Applied Reflexology Skills in Practice
As the unit title suggests, you will build on your knowledge and begin treatments on study clients which will develop in depth and complexity as your skills and learning deepen. You will be learning to integrate practical, theoretical and technological understanding to find ways forward in complex and broadly defined contexts. It is important to be able to apply critical evaluation to treatment findings, but also to be able to apply the same to yourself as a learner which is why a Personal Development Plan is also a part of the assessments required for this unit.
HK25CY011 - Providing Reflexology for Specific Conditions
Stress is recognised as a contributor to many allopathic conditions and it was with this in mind, that Centralia Centres developed a treatment protocol specific to the known systems that are most affected by stress responses. Neuro-Endo-Psycho-Immuno-Pody (NEPIP) explores the psychology of stress and the way it often then results in a susceptability to illness because of a compromised immune system. Assessments include a research report and the theory and application of treatments for the terminally ill as well as treating during pregnancy.
