Ear Reflexology Certification Course

In cooperation with Beryl Crane of the Crane School of Reflexology (UK) RAC offers this innovative training program.

Within the ear there exist rich nerve innervations and multiple connections with the central nervous system. Every part of the body has an auricular correspondence (similar to the theory of foot reflexology.) When the body loses its homeostasis, its corresponding point on the ear becomes painful or an irregularity is apparent. These signs of imbalance are not evident in a healthy person.

The ear is viewed as an inverted fetus with the head lying near the lower lobe and the hands and feet towards the upper rim with the body in between. There are hundreds of acupoints on the ear. Due to the safety and simplicity of this therapy, the World Health Organization standardized 90 of these points in 1982. At the International Council of Reflexologist biannual conference in 1999, Ear Reflexology was at the forefront in information as it is gaining in popularity around the world.

Ear Reflexology is a wonderful adjunct and natural progression for the Foot Reflexology practitioner. An ear session is very soothing and can be used on its own or at the beginning or end of a Foot Reflexology session. An ear session is 15 - 30 minutes and both ears are worked on at the same time using gentle palpation. Using Ear and Foot Reflexology together can be a profound and powerful combination for your clients.

Our innovative Ear Reflexology Certification Course consists of 12 hours of classroom instruction and 30 case histories. A written and practical examination must be passed before the student is awarded certification. The student has 6 months to complete the certification examinations. The classroom instruction includes the history of Ear Reflexology and Auricular Therapy, auricular anatomy, auricular points - location and conditions, auricular inspection, and practical application and documentation.

Course Pre-requisite: This course is open to anyone who has completed 35 hours of theory from the RAC foot course or an equivalent from another RAC approved school. Documentation is required. Current membership in the Reflexology Association of Canada is necessary in order to complete the course.

Course and exam fees are $410 (plus GST or HST.)

Course fees include the Ear Reflexology student manual, Chinese ear model and large ear chart.
