When you attend your oncology reflexology course training day you will be shown how to work with those affected by cancer, how to adapt your reflexology techniques and work with your client to make the class the most beneficial it can be for them. The consultation process is covered in detail, as are the insurance requirements.
Your insurer should insure you upon completion of the course (no-one has refused so far). If your insurer won't, ours will.
