When I decided I wanted to study reflexology I began looking for a course. I struggled to find anything close by that provided a high level of training and a recognised qualification. As I widened my search I came across The CTS. I was immediately impressed by the website and course description which offered a high level and widely recognised qualification. From my first call to enquire about enrolment Melanie was extremely helpful answering all my questions and sending me some further information explaining how the course was structured. The course was spread over a 10 month period and split between Anatomy and Physiology and Reflexology. The CTS have a very assessable approach to learning, I was able to fit the course around my full time job due to practice sessions being scheduled for weekends.

Upon starting the course I felt a little apprehensive having never studied a complementary therapy or A&P before. Melanie immediately put the others and me in the group at ease creating a warm and relaxed atmosphere. She explained the course and how it would be broken down and assessed answering any questions throughout the session. The group was a good size allowing Melanie to spend one on one time with us all but also allowing us to learn from each other’s experiences and bounce ideas of one another.

Melanie showed a vast knowledge and passion for both the A&P and practical Reflexology side of the course, this kept the sessions both informative and interesting. Her teaching style was a perfect balance of professional yet relaxed, no question was considered stupid and Melanie was happy to answer them throughout the session. Melanie was able to adapt her teaching and communication style dependant on the individual and their previous knowledge of the subject, allowing the group to all learn in our own way. The A&P was broken down into manageable sections, which Melanie would talk through providing excellent handouts. There was an online learning site covering the A&P, which was clear and concise, I found this easy to follow and well written as someone who has not studied A&P before. The practical sessions involved Melanie giving a demonstration followed by time for us to practice with constant support from Melanie, she offered advice and help, which really built up my confidence. The CTS provided videos of all the Reflexology sequences to watch at home, I found these a great aid when practising.

The course covered all bases, not only A&P and the practice side but also business skills and marketing. We had guest speakers providing advice on client relationships, counselling and also chinese Reflexology offering us a different take on the practice of reflexology. Throughout the course Melanie would offer advice on further reading to those who found particular aspects more interesting demonstrating her vast knowledge on the topic. Throughout the entire course Melanie was always on hand via phone or email to offer advice and support or answer any questions. She always responded promptly with an in-depth answer and was extremely approachable and discreet, again a great balance of business like professionalism on a personal level.

I would recommend the CTS to anyone, every session was worth the 300 mile round trip and I thank The CTS and especially Melanie for giving me not only the skills but the confidence I needed to go it alone and become a practising Reflexologist.

I thoroughly enjoyed my Swedish Massage and Indian Head massage courses. Practising in school made me aware of how important it is to take care of myself and others and to reduce stress. These courses make me want to receive therapies more. My clients really appreciate the treatments I give them and the sense of job satisfaction helping others’ wellbeing is priceless. Thank you to great Tutors for all the help and encouragement helping me get this far. I have more confidence for my future. Thank you so much (and for the government who helped me afford some of the courses).

I was hesitant to make the commitment of undertaking the practitioners diploma in clinical reflexology. Already working full time in a busy and challenging environment, I was concerned how
I would manage the study workload.

The Complementary Therapy School provided the flexibility to manage my time responsibly and effectively with assignment completion dates whilst also offering much support and assistance when I needed it.

Overall the CTS gave me as much flexibility and support that I required to help me achieve the completion of my diploma.

When I began to look for courses in reflexology, I thoroughly researched the internet and found 3 possibilities. I chose the CTS based on the fact that the course was university credit rated and after reading the many positive student testimonials on the school’s website.

I was impressed from our first morning by Melanie’s warm and friendly but business-like approach as she covered every aspect of the course content with us, from student/tutor expectations, case studies, assignments and the eventual exams, with opportunities for questions and answers throughout.

The training days were really enjoyable with clear demonstrations from Melanie, followed by student practice with guided support from her.
Throughout the course I found Melanie to be very approachable and helpful when discussing aspects of the course, or when I have had a problem understanding a point.

I would definitely recommend the school to others wishing to train in reflexology.
