After having a relexology treatment herself, Wendy found it fascinating and decided to study our reflexology diploma. Now she has her own therapy business in Cornwall.

"I find my work very rewarding and I'm keen to learn even more about reflexology. My tutor at the college was amazing and so knowledgeable and was able to teach the subject in an easy to understand manner. I found the practical aspect so interesting and really enjoyed learning about foot reading too."
