Launch your dream career as a professional reflexologist

Perth School of Reflexology

Perth’s leading Reflexology School

About Us

Perth School of Reflexology was established by Hollie Ann Kelly and Karen Bishop in Perth, Western Australia in 2012. Both Hollie and Karen have had many years experience in Reflexology, run their own private practices and are Accredited Trainers of the Reflexology Association of Australia.

Creating the School came about as they saw a need for more Reflexology practitioners to spread the word of the benefits of this amazing modality, yet there were very limited facilities to train at a high enough level in Western Australia.

What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a holistic, non-invasive therapy which complements other therapies and modern medicine. It is based on the principle that all parts of the body are reflected on the feet, hands and ears. A qualified Reflexologist will use a combination of pressure techniques on these reflexes in order to address imbalances in the mind and body.

 Some of the proven benefits of Reflexology include:

  • Reduces muscular tension and joint pain
  • Relieves fatigue
  • Improves sleep quality
  • Increases energy and reduces tension
  • Boosts lymphatic function
  • Detoxifies the body and mind
  • Improves circulation
