Administrative Policies


Admissions Standards

To enroll in a class students must be at least 16 years of age. Washington State law requires professional reflexologists to be 18 years of age or older.

Non-Discrimination Policies

SRMC and its employees do not discriminate against students or potential students on the basis of race, creed, color, age, national origin, religion, sex, veteran or military status, sexual orientation, or the presence of any sensory, mental or physical disability or the use of a trained guide dog or service animal by a person with a disability.

Students with Disabilities:  ADA Access & Training Equipment Information

Our practice space is accessible on the first floor of the building. Our classroom spaces vary by size of class and availability of classroom rentals – they may or may not have stairs or elevator availability. Our training equipment includes the use of folding chairs and portable massage tables. Students with disabilities may request a reasonable accommodation by contacting the Director.

Student Conduct Policies

Students are expected to act in a respectful manner toward instructors, staff and other students. These policies are in place to keep classes focused and on task, benefiting the entire group.

Save discussions for breaks. If you must talk during a lecture or demonstration, please keep your voice down out of respect for everybody else in class.

As a courtesy to the instructor and to other students, we ask that cell phones are turned to “silent” (not “vibrate”) during class and be used only on breaks.  Please do not take phone calls during class. If you must communicate with the outside world during class, please take your call outside.

Students are expected to clean up after themselves and treat the physical classroom with respect, refraining from causing destruction or damage to the physical property. Any damage should be reported to the instructor or staff immediately.

No photography, video recording, or voice recordings are allowed during core classes. Digital recordings in elective classes are only allowed with permission from the both the Director and the instructor.

All written materials provided in class are copyrighted by Seattle Reflexology and Massage Center or guest instructors, and may not be copied or distributed to others without the written permission by SRMC and/or the author.

Students / graduates may not re-teach significant portions of course materials to individuals or groups without written permission by SRMC.

Failure to meet any or all of the above policies, behavior that could lead to injury, any intoxication, drugged behavior or behavior deemed inappropriate, possession of a weapon or repeated absence without valid excuse are grounds for immediate dismissal from an individual class. Copyright infringement will prompt legal action.

Depending on the severity of a student conduct issue, the first offense will result in a verbal warning or expulsion from class. The second offense will result in expulsion from class. All previously stated cancellation policies will apply.

Tardiness and Absences

There is a grace period of 15 minutes at the beginning of class or after a break. Students who are more than 15 minutes late will not receive credit for that hour of instruction. Students can miss up to 2 hours or 10% of the total class (whichever is smaller) and still be eligible to receive a certificate for class, adjusted for time missed.

Placement Assistance

SRMC may contact interested parties through email, Facebook or LinkedIn when notified by the community (spas, health care co-ops, etc.) of specific requests to employ a professional reflexologist.
