Imagine how great you would feel waking up every day, eager to do the work that you really love! Working as a professional reflexologist can be a wonderfully rewarding career. Not only will you be able to help others in a natural way, but you will also be in charge of your own career.
Opportunities for Reflexologists are opening up at a rapid rate, and whilst the traditional route of self-employment is still the norm for most Reflexologists, more and more are finding part and full time employment. Reflexologists are working within complementary health clinics, sports facilities, care homes, clinics, gyms, health spas and even on luxury liners. Some NHS hospitals and hospices also employ reflexologists to provide treatments for patients. More and more companies are offering opportunities for reflexologists to provide treatments in the workplace for busy professionals. The sky is the limit for you if you are a caring, helpful professional. The secret to success is the amount of energy and enthusiasm you put into your business as this directly impacts on the quality of your work and client satisfaction.
The benefits of becoming a Reflexologist are that you can choose where and when you work, fitting your career around your lifestyle and enabling you to live your life on your own terms. Very few careers can provide such freedom and flexibility.
