Based on observation of students who entered the AAR Reflexology Training at the American Academy of Reflexology for more than three decades, most people who study Reflexology fall into four groups
1st People In Transition:Most people who study with the AAR are in transition, wishing to find part or full time income in a profession that has heart, that is nurturing, that is caring, respectful and honoring of others and themselves. They want a career where, if they approach it like a business, they can make a respectable income as well.
2nd Those wanting to work on themselves, their family, and friends:The second most common reason people study with the AAR is to help themselves, their families and friends.
3rd Professionals wanting to add Reflexology to what they already do:The third most common reason are people in the caring and healing arts who are looking for additional approaches to help their clients as well as an additional source of income: Massage Technicians, Massage Therapists, Bodyworkers, Cosmetologists, Estheticians, Manicure and Pedicurists, Physical Therapists, Fitness Trainers, Yoga Teachers, Nurses, Chiropractic Physicians, Acupuncturists, Doctors, many other professionals.
4th Those wanting to give back to the world by volunteering using Reflexology on the needy:Once Academy Graduates are Certified Reflexologists, those who wish are given a number of options as to where and how they can volunteer their time to the needy. Volunteers work with hospice, shut-ins, children’s hospital, infants, geriatrics, HIV Aids, and more.
