Accredited Reflexology Curriculum Offered at Lourdes Institute

Reflexology is coming of age in New Jersey. In the last decade, reflexology has gained respect and momentum as a valid holistic modality. Lourdes Institute of Wholistic Studies, in Collingswood, NJ, offers a unique and thorough 11-month reflexology certificate program, and its fall semester begins September 6.

The 300-hour curriculum is one of only three programs in the country that has been approved by the American Commission for Accreditation of Reflexology Education and Training (ACARET). The curriculum covers Eastern and Western approaches to health and disease; as well as the theory and practice of reflexology using the feet, hands and ears; and the study of anatomy, physiology and pathology.

Corinne Corcoran, a nationally certified licensed massage therapist whose reflexology teacher certification is accredited by ACARET, has developed and taught the endorsed program at Lourdes Institute of Wholistic Studies over the past 20 years “National standards have helped raise the bar for reflexology and build the public’s trust in the modality, which is wonderful for healing both chronic and acute conditions,” explains Corcoran, who also holds a Doctorate of Education degree. “Studying the latest research in the field also helps students appreciate and convey to the public the power of the work.”

Lourdes Institute of Wholistic Studies is a comprehensive, spirituality based educational organization sponsored by Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center.

Location: 1049 Haddon Avenue, Collingswood, NJ. For enrollment and more information, call 856-869-3134 or visit
