Holism (from ὂλος holos, a Greek word meaning all, whole, entire, total) is the idea that all the properties of a given system (physical, biological, chemical, social, economic, mental, linguistic, etc.) cannot be determined or explained by its component parts alone. Instead, the system as a whole determines in an important way how the parts behave.


Holistic Health Practitioners take a Holiopathic approach to health, they are also known as Holiopaths who have studied Holiology. They are trained in various natural healing arts and modalities.

Certified Reflexologist (C.R.) Certificate Program

Reflexology is a holistic assessment and modality technique based on the principle that there are areas and points on the feet and hands that map via the nervous system to corresponding parts of the body. When pressure is applied to these areas and points, it stimulates the movement of energy along the nerve channels, and helps to restore homeostasis (balance) in the whole body. 


This is a unique curriculum like no other in reflexology. 

This program educates the student in various reflective holistic techniques which allows the reflexologist to assess wellness from various anatomical signs, markings, colors, lines, and reflex points.

This program consists almost entirely of eBooks.
