Holistic Courses


Foot Reflexology Course - £275.00 

Reflexology is a gentle, non-invasive therapy that encourages the body to balance and heal itself. It involves applying finger or thumb pressure to specific points on the hands and feet. These points are called reflexes and they reflect, or mirror, the organs and structures of the body as well as a person’s emotional health. In this way, the hands and feet are mini maps or microcosms of the body that can be used to encourage holistic healing.

This course will teach you everything you need to know in order to carry out a professional reflexology treatment. The theory is completed online at home in your own time before a practical training session is taken at our Training Academy. This means that GTi gives you flexible learning designed to fit in around your lifestyle. Full tutorial support is available throughout your learning experience.

The GTi Foot Reflexology course covers all the necessary anatomy and physiology which you will need to know in order to perform a reflexology treatment and so you do not need to hold a separate anatomy and physiology qualification.

The course also covers reception and consultation, the history and theories of reflexology, contra-indications to treatment and aftercare advice. It also includes detailed technique modules with clear images which show you how to read and interpret the feet as well as how to perform relaxation and pressure techniques.

The course is beautifully written and accompanied by images and a voice-over to give you the best possible learning experience.

Ear Candling - £100.00 

Clients who discover the benefits of an ear candle treatment will continue to keep coming back, bringing you a core of loyal, returning customers. The candles work using the process of convection. The burning of the candle helps to draw softer waxes and toxins from the ear. Some of these are then oxidised or turned into vapours and burnt. The warm air from the burning candle passes into the ear canal before being gently drawn back up to the top of the candle in a chimney effect. The warm air containing the herbal extract vapours from the candle helps to soothe and invigorate the ear.

The GTi Ear Candles course covers how to give a full ear candle treatment and covers the history, technique and aftercare of the treatment.

The course also covers reception and consultation, and contra-indications to treatment. It also includes detailed technique modules which show you how to carry out an ear candle treatment.
