pedicure for reflexologists

Elevate your reflexology practice with comprehensive nail health expertise

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why Nail Health Matters

As reflexologists, our commitment to holistic well-being extends beyond pressure points and meridians—it encompasses the overall health of our clients’ feet and nails. Nail health is a crucial, yet often overlooked, aspect of foot care. Understanding the structure, function, and growth cycle of nails is essential for offering comprehensive care and informed advice on foot health. Your clients trust you with their overall well-being, and as a reflexologist, you are uniquely positioned to observe and address changes in their feet and nails.

This masterclass is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to elevate your practice and provide enhanced services to your clients.

 

 

 

We understand the challenges you face as a reflexologist and independent therapist. That’s why we’ve collaborated with industry leaders like Feetcalm and Duet Diabetes and using scientifically formulated products to bring you an exclusive pedicure course designed to empower and enhance your client offerings.

This programme is open to qualified therapists who would like to elevate their practice to new heights, help clients say goodbye to common concerns like fungal toes and provide retail opportunities to sustain their professional practice.
