What Will I Learn?
  • This course has been created because I love Reflexology and benefited so much from this practice modality; I am also a Reiki Master teacher and have many other holistic healing modalities that supplement and support each other. I love working with Reflexology because I use it as a tool to 'read' the recipient.
  • Students will learn basics of Reflexology including a basic treatment.
  • Students will learn the basics of Reflexology; what it is and isn't, a brief history, aims of treatment, body zones and foot maps, research to support reflexology and progression onto the full course.
  • Includes basic anatomy and physiology.

  • Students do not need any previous learning of Reflexology
  • It would help if students can understand English
  • With committment to learning and practice students will improve their own health and well-bing and restore body balance. This can help to eliminate dis-ease and reduce the potential of manifesting illness.
  • Students need to ensure they have their volume settings adjusted to the correct level to hear the recordings

Deborah created this course because,of a love of the modality; Deborah loves all the healing modalities in which she is qualified and experienced in (as well as those she is not) and it is her dream to help as many people around the world to learn and apply the differing modalities to their own health and well-being.  

Deborahs' expanded version of this dream is for those students who take these training courses will go onto apply these skills to aid the health and well-being of other people in their family, friendship circles and the wider communities in which students live.  As global health systems come under greater pressure there is a greater need for these healing modalities; they do not replace but support medical care yet conversely used regularly can optimise a persons health.

Reflexology is an ancient, natural and medicineless healing modality.  Reflexology can be used by everyone however there are some conditions need to be considered.  Truly holistic, Reflexology can restore balance and harmony to mind, body and spirit.  Share this healing modality with your family and friends and see their health and well-being flourish too.

This course "Introduction to Reflexology" was created by Deborah Casey a Reflexologist with over 16 years post qualification experience in many natural healing modalities, provides recorded video (including demonstrations of giving Reflexology and self-reflexology), powerpoint recordings to help you achieve your learning goals and you receive your Udemy certificate of completion.  

This is course is now for self-help and you will receive a certificate of completion from COS as well as your Udemy certificate.  The course is aimed to help you decide if you wish to progress onto the next level of learning which is Diploma level; the diploma level course is for students who want to learn Reflexology to become a practitioner of Reflexology and so allow you to obtain insurance etc - the diploma course is under construction and Deborah is working with a company to gain accreditation.

I believe that as the worlds health care systems come under ever greater pressure, and the medicines to treat illness become ever more expensive, and that their side-effects can and do cause more harm than good, that a new way of treating illness and disease is to be found in the old and ancient ways of the past, referred to by some as 'quackery' .  I have a vision, a dream, of helping as many  of my fellow human beings, people around the world, through this medium of Udemy, to learn and empower themselves with holistic therapy tools that can aid the healing of mind, body and Spirit; this is truly liberating and taking back responsibility of our own health, well-being and gives us more choices.  I believe our physical ailments are our soul crying out to be heard, to be healed - we are provided early warning signs and we must learn how to hear and interpret these. 

It was the late 1990s when Deborah began her journey of the healing arts.  She took studies Body Massage, Aromatherapy, Indian head massage, Reflexology, Hot stone therapy, Hopi ear candling, and many more courses.  It was during this time that Deborah was attuned to Reiki and experienced a deep Spiritual awakening; intuition and sensitive to energy Deborah can well detect a persons inner motives.  

Deborah loves nature and in her spare time will record videos of local natural habitats and upload these into the Reiki support group she has created to supplement student experience; there is often distance healing too.

Deborah digressed into nursing which provided many, many opportunities for learning and although this was not her path found Reiki to be deeply calming and supportive for elderly people with Dementias, and people with mental illness type issues.  Deborah has worked with traumatised souls infusing Reiki into her time with them.  

Deborah is the Director of Calm Oasis School of Reiki, a Usui Reiki Master, Practitioner and teacher.  Deborah holds Diplomas in the various therapies she practices and teaches along with her Reiki degrees certifications.  Deborah is also registered and a holds membership with the Guild of Holistic therapists. 

Deborah's courses are designed to meet the UK national occupational standards and core skills curriculum and so provide students skills that can provide employment. Deborah really wants to help you achieve your dreams and aspirations. Udemy is the ideal platforms for this as it allows lifetime access to affordable courses that are accessible worldwide and 24 hours a day... how much better can it get?

Deborah is dedicated to sharing healing gifts of Reiki and each Tuesday evening shares Reiki distance healing in her free facebook group; this is a free healing to all who wish to join and recieve.  Deborah is mindful of the suffering experienced by people in war torn zones and the conflicts of humaity and so during these weekly sessions expends Reiki to those areas too with the soul intention that those who wish to recieve do so freely with purity of love and deep compassion.
