Course Materials: Research - Reflexology, by Judith Koch
Course Description: This online massage therapy CEU course looks at scientific research that has been done to show the impact of reflexology on a variety of conditions. This is not a course to teach reflexology points and techniques. Rather the purpose is to see what research has been done on the effectiveness of reflexology. (We do offer a course in reflexology techniques elsewhere on this site.) After completing this course, you will be able to:
- Give a brief description of the history of reflexology
- List and describe scientific research results of reflexology for women during PMS, pregnancy, and labor
- List and describe scientific research results of reflexology for infants
- List and describe scientific research results of several common conditions such as cancer, headaches, arthritis, and diabetes
Student Comment: I just finished completing two of the online classes that I purchased from you. Awesome learning experience. My only regret is that I didn't know about you sooner. I will definitely be using your classes in the future. Thank you for designing such fabulous classes. Sincerely, Liz Volansky, Saint Louis, MO (Completed Research - Reflexology and Pathology - Shoulder Dysfunction)

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Are your online courses downloadable to my computer? You must be logged in on our website to view at least some of the course materials. Many of our courses do have downloadable files.
Will your online courses work on my phone, tablet, or other device? Yes. Since technology continues its rapid pace forward, it is impossible for us to provide a current and complete list of all devices on which our courses will work. We invite you to take our free sample course so that you can personally test if the online content and streaming video work on your device.
Can I review the course materials after I’ve completed the test? Yes. Even after completing the test, you will always have the option to access the course materials, print another certificate, or review your test results.
Can I print the online test to work on it at my convenience? Yes. We provide a study guide with this course that has the test questions and answer choices. You can print it off and work on it as you study. When you are ready to take the test, you will log into the system and supply your answers to the test questions.
What happens if I fail the test? Do I have to pay again? No. If you happen to fail our test, you can continue to retest until you do pass at no additional charge.
Is online testing the only testing option you have available? If you enroll online, you will automatically be set up to take the online exam. If you prefer to have a paper test you can submit the study guide by following the instructions on the bottom of the study guide. There is a $20 fee for processing paper testing, which includes the premium, gold-embossed sealed certificate (online testers also have the option to purchase a premium certificate for $15).
Do you report our course completions to the NCBTMB, ABMP, AMTA, or any other agencies? None of these agencies have a method for us to report to them on your behalf. They prefer that you provide the evidence of CEs that their renewal process details.
