You may also want to check local gyms and spas as well. They may allow you to offer your reflexologist services through business or they may hire you full time. It is just a matter of going to these different places and selling yourself and your services.
If you decide to go to your clients, you will want to partner with doctors, holistic practitioners, chiropractors, and gyms. They may refer clients to you to enhance therapies their patients are currently receiving.
Once you know how you are going to work, you need to decide on cost of your reflexology services. Some places will dictate fees you can charge, and others will not. You will need to contact local reflexologists, and ask them about services they offer and fees associated with services. This information will give you a basis to work from when developing your own pricing system.
You should check reflexologist web sites routinely and subscribe to industry magazines. This will keep you up on new trends, tips, and techniques in reflexology. You may also look at continuing education class at your local community college.
Since you may with working with clients in a medical setting, client may think you are a medical doctor. If this should happened, just gently remind patient that you are not a doctor, but a trained, certified (when applicable), professional reflexologist.
The only other real problem you could face would be if you feel client is unclean or client’s feet and/or hands have sores, fungus or other diseases. Never feel that you have to accept everyone who contacts you as a client. You need to protect clients you already have, and that may mean refusing service to others. Let them know they have a problem and should seek medical attention. Tell them to return to you when problem has been corrected and then you will take them as a client.
If you are still interested in becoming a reflexologist, contact local reflexology association, get more information, and get started.
