The International Dermal Institute offer a 2 day reflexology course. It covers the theory a bit, but most of it is hands on training for a relaxing reflexology session. I'd had done a 6 day course over 3 weekends when I did my massage treaining, which obviously covered more, but not that much more than IDI did in 2 days. I did the IDI course too as it was required module for the spa certification I did with them. It gives you a good basic routine. It's not enough of a course to say "I offer full reflexology treatments", but it is enough to incorporate reflexology techniques in another treatment, plus it would give you an idea if you want to investigate it further - I know I find it a bit too much strain on my thumb and I have to keep my thumb nail so short it's not comfortable, but I do some of it, and it's let me be confident working the feet with hot stones.
IDI courses are primarily directed at beauty therapists (it's post-graduate beauty therapist education) but they will let bodyworkers do most of their body, wellness and alternative therapies courses.

Reflexology is one of the most dramatic relaxation tools available, and the perfect addition to any skin care treatment. We’ll share the ancient theories, as well as how to link body zones to the feet. Offer a whole reflexology service, or add it into a skin care treatment.
Whatever you do, this is a sure-fire client favorite.
> Explore the background and theory of reflexology

> Develop a complete massage treatment
> Incorporate reflexology into your existing skin care treatments
They have the dates up to June available on the web site and it looks like Reflexology is not running in Boston at that time. I'm not sure if you'd consider a couple of days elsewhere, and where elsewhere might suit you, but they have LOTS of locations, including Miami where you might be able to pop over to? Reflexology is running the last 2 days of May in Atlanta, end of June in Vancouver...... I haven't checked every location, so there may be others, and it might be somewhere you've got a friend you wouldn't mind catching up with on your trip
I'd actually recommend any of their courses for a great short course option. In Boston in June they've got Chinese Acupressure face routine, it's great, and at the end of May they have Aromatherapy Face and Neck - it cover essential oils and theory a bit, and a very good face and neck routine, which actually has a fair bit of accupressure work in it.
