Welcome to the Gaia School of Natural Health

Level 5 2016-17 Level 5 2016-17

The foremost private training school for complementary therapies on the Wirral. Established in 2008, our graduates are now employed in holistic centres, hospices, gyms, schools and private practice across Merseyside, Cheshire, North Wales and further afield. Our ethos is to provide detailed, thorough, high standard and in depth training. We therefore offer the highest level of reflexology training available (Level 5) and ensure that all our courses meet, and often go beyond, the National Occupational Standards and Core Curriculum for that therapy. Your qualification will be accepted by well respected professional associations, insurers and national registers. We therefore do not offer short cut or fast track courses.

The Gaia School of Natural Health is a COVID-19 Secure Workplace.

We confirm that we have complied with the government’s guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19. We have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment. We have cleaning, handwashing and hygiene measures in place, in line with guidance. We have taken all reasonable steps to maintain a 2m distance. Where people cannot be 2m apart, we have done everything practical to manage transmission risk.

AOR Covid19 secure

In addition, we have done this in an environmentally friendly way. The Gaia School of Natural Health will not be recommending use of any disposable or single use items - no wipes, no paper couch roll, no throwaway masks or aprons. Everything will be cleanable and re-usable. And no harsh chemicals either. Just safe, natural effective products to clean and sanitise. Our students and visitors are expected to follow this environmentally friendly policy too.

Introduction to
Reflexology

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.

RLD CPD

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.
