Introduction to

Level 5 Reflexology

Here at the Gaia School we are thrilled to be running the Level 5 Diploma in Practitioner Reflexology. This Level 5 is the highest level of reflexology training available in the UK. We teach clinical reflexology with a strong holistic emphasis on energy work and meridian theories, and also a specialist focus on fertility and maternity reflexology. We aim to equip prospective practitioners with a thorough and professional grounding in both practical and theoretical knowledge, and to equip them with all the skills necessary to become gifted and versatile health professionals.


This Level 5 course is an advancement in the arena of reflexology training. Prior to its development the highest qualification available was the Diploma at Level 3. For those of you who are wanting to learn Reflexology at the highest level and practice clinical and therapeutic reflexology then this Level 5 Diploma is the course for you. Please note that the Level 5 course is aimed at beginners rather than already qualified reflexologists, so no prior learning is required.

The course is accepted by:
Professional Reflexology Association for full membership (PRM), and the
Association of Reflexologists (AOR) for full membership (MAR status).

Successful graduates from this Level 5 course will be recognised by the letters L5 Dip. or CRM L5 Dip after their names.
