Should your desire to learn Reflexology is so great and the nagging feeling won't pass, and none of the above training dates suit you, please contact Bridgitt. Let's chat and see if we can work it out for you.

"The course content was exactly what I was looking for. A great “recipe” for me to practice with family and friends. It was good to learn all the theory on the day 1 and practice, practice, practice on day 2. I felt very fortunate that Carlo, Reflexologist and Tutor, from Aromaflex Academy in Nelson was our Guest, and that there were only two of us students. It made learning much faster. I only wish I’d been able to receive more treatment time than I did! Lol


Could this be your year to learn a new skill? Provide natural health care without side effects? Become confident in naturally treating your family and friends?

Kia ora and a warm welcome to future students of Reflexology. Have you had a wee look at my other main Reflexology page to learn more about Reflexology and how I provide it in my natural health clinic?

"Thank you Bridgitt, you have opened me up to a whole new world. Reflexology is such a beautiful practice - both giving and receiving it.  I had no idea how empowering, centering and beautiful it would be. I can't wait to practice, practice, practice and eventually get my Diploma. Love and Light, Kirsten"

"Bridgitt was so great in bringing us all together to work to achieve all the content, she is knowledgeable and a hoot to learn with.  Thank you so much for all the extra effort you put in with the venue, food and equipment to make the weekend memorable and informative. Sue, Hamilton".

If you are interested in and looking for a qualification in reflexology, when you do a search, it up can get confusing to choose the best course that will suit you. 

Before enrolling, it's a great idea to take the time and think about which direction you would like to go after you complete  your course; do you want to:

  • Only provide Reflexology to treat friends and family or

  • Strive and pursue your goals to make a living out of reflexology? Set up your own business or work in conjunction with another established business?


If you want to treat friends and family, then clinic insurance is not necessary . In this situation, any introductory course to suit your budget and your time scale will be perfect for you, however, you will not be able to become a professional member of Reflexology New Zealand or other professional organisations in the future, unless you train further for a Diploma in Reflexology.

It is worth noting, currently there is no protection of title for reflexology in New Zealand, so anyone can call themselves a '"reflexologist". The difference comes from the level of training and I believe, this is what sets registered Reflexologists in New Zealand apart. So you know, that we know and your healing and wellness are in safe hands, so to speak.

"I have been a reflexology client at Maintaining Your Health (Whakatikatika Oranga) for several years and treatments with Bridgette are the most relaxing part of my week, fortnight or month.  I was excited when Bridgette shared she was going to be teaching introductory reflexology and signed up immediately.

It was great to be able to understand how the body is mapped on your feet and learn and practice various techniques. Bridgette had created a comprehensive workbook and scheduled time for theory, modelling and practice. Self care and maintaining our health and supporting friends and family are all crucial now more than ever.  I would recommend investing in this course and learning how your feet connect with everything.
