Event Description

This course is designed to provide a “hand-on” workshop for the student. It provides the student with the beginning techniques of reflexology along with relaxation techniques. Each participant will see how the feet mirror the body; how to divide the foot into regions of the body and how to locate the reflexes. Learning what common types of foot pain people experience and how to relieve it is essential for anyone wanting to perform a reflexology session.

About the Instructor

Teri Hoskins became a certified reflexologist and opened a reflexology practice in March 1995. After studying at Seattle Reflexology and Massage Center, she continued to study with The International Institute of Reflexology. Her passion for the field took her to South Africa where she studied at The International School of Reflexology and Meridian Therapy, where she learned to incorporate meridian knowledge with her expertise in reflexology.  Her love for reflexology lead her to start teaching in August 1997.  Three years later Teri was appointed the USA Director for an international reflexology school. She opened the first of these USA schools in Olympia, WA. She then branched out and oversaw three other campuses and school directors in Washington for eight years. 

Since resigning as the USA Director, she continues to teach reflexology and meridian therapy as it relates to reflexology.  She has been a guest teacher at the Seattle Reflexology and Massage Center.  She co-taught the reflexology program at Bellevue Massage School.  She has studied with Dr. Manzanares who incorporates reflexology with his medical practice in Spain. She has also studied with Dr. McClanahan, a podiatrist in Portland, OR who embraces natural foot care as part of his practice. Teri currently maintains a reflexology private practice in Olympia, WA and offers a 300-Hour Reflexology Certification Apprenticeship Program in addition to CE classes.

More than just a foot massage, reflexology follows a map of reflex points on the feet, hands and ears that correspond to the body’s organ systems. Practitioners apply pressure to the reflex points to promote wellbeing in those body systems. Some forms of the modality also teach assessment of a client’s feet, hands, face and ears to judge overall health.

Reflexology continuing education is often split into hand, feet and ear units that can be taken separately. Brief courses will discuss how to incorporate basic techniques into spa massage while specialty training delves into the Chinese medicine basis of the practice, how to address client complaints like headaches and how to use hot stones and other tools in your sessions.
