Supervised Practice Clinic  This mentored clinic setting allows you to bring in a client or friend, give them a real-time reflexology session, and have your questions answered and your technique refined by instructors Pam Foster and Neil McNeill. From your client intake to post-session documentation, this clinic will help you improve your assessment, warm-up, reflexing sequence and other session-related skills including body mechanics, clients’ feet or health issues, and client homework (contact SRMC for help in finding a volunteer to work on, if needed). We suggest that you sign up for one clinic shortly after beginning your reflexology training and the second clinic toward the end of your training.
