I want you to know exactly what you’re signing up for.

I’m confident you can see I do what I can to be as generous as possible in sharing everything I’ve learned over the past two decades of holistic entrepreneurship as a reflexologist. Our training exceeds industry standards by far. Our curriculum is accredited by the Reflexology Association of Canada. Our school is a certified education institution by the Canada Revenue Agency and we provide tuition tax credit forms (T2202) to all of our Canadian students. We have students enrolled in our training programs from all over the globe.

We take pride in being a small school doing big things in the holistic training world. 


Our relationship with our students is of equal importance to us as the quality of our education. We believe relationships are a vital part of your success! 

Here’s what some of our past students have said about By the Moon training:


“I definitely feel prepared after this course. It is so much more in depth than I expected and I learned so much more than I would have thought. Thank you!!” - Sharon Tower


“Learning how to offer reflexology to others has changed my life and my practice, for which I am deeply grateful! Thank you once more for being a beacon in the storm for me, showing up in such an honest way and weaving your wisdom into all you do.” - Amie Young


“It was my first time doing online training and I was impressed with how smooth and organized it all was.  The check-in sessions are a great learning opportunity as well. There are some very knowledgeable people who kindly shared what they know.  Best of all is Michelle, the instructor.  In addition to all the experience she brings, she creates a safe, inclusive and non-judgmental environment. I would highly recommend By the Moon!” - Angie Beaulieu


We offer payment plans to make training even more accessible.
