A history of health, naturally.

The School

The Holt School of Natural Healing was founded by Pamela and Alan Holt in 1986.

The Holt School has lectured to 200 students at a time, featured on network television and taught across Canada. Our focus is now small semi-private instruction, teaching full certification courses to students.

More than 600 certified Reflexologists and dozens of Certified Acupuncture students have been taught through our methods which combine theory and hands on practicum.

Currently, we run small in-person class sizes as we find this offers the optimal balance of attention, safety and knowledge transmission.

The Founders

Alan and Pam had previously been founding members of the Reflexology Association of Canada (RAC) and went on to be founding members of the Reflexology Registration of Ontario (RRCO) – which also represents all of Canada despite the name.

Subsequently, they were members of the many years of meetings when Acupuncture was becoming a regulated profession in Ontario.

Pamela was an Olympic contender gymnast (who has touched the torch) and Health and Phys-Ed teacher with the Etobicoke and Ottawa boards of education which led her to further pursue the path of health for the human body.

As a member of RAC, she wrote all the original Reflexology curriculum in 1976 and has been improving and modifying those techniques for the last 45 years.

In the 90’s Pamela traveled to Sri Lanka twice to learn Acupuncture under Dr. Anton Jayasuriya, and certified in TCM in Toronto. Following that, she taught Acupuncture at for many decades.
Pam is available for private exam prep tutoring for TCM, but no longer practices or teaches Acupuncture.

Alan served on the Toronto Fire Department for 30 years. He taught CPR at the Toronto Fire Academy and brought that spark to teaching Iridology, Aromatherapy & Reflexology at Holt School.

Alan and Pam have a combined 80 years of natural health experience between them.
