The School

International School of Multireflexology Dien Chan

The International School of Multireflexology and Dien Chan (ISMDC) has been in operation since 2002, with its teachers reaching worldwide. It has taught thousands of students the art known as facial reflexology.

The North American division is based out of Canada and proudly represents the original method of facial reflexology; Dien Chan.

History of Dien Chan and Chan'beauté

In 1975, after the Vietnam War, Prof. Bùi Quôc Châu developed a hypothesis that the face reflects all parts of the body; internal, external as well as all its systems. During the 1980s he clinically verified this hypothesis and Multireflexology – Dien Chan was born. Professor Bùi Quôc Châu discovered this modern technique whilst treating people with severe withdrawal symptoms (a byproduct of the war).

Facial reflexology Dien Chan combines many diagrams of reflection and precise facial points to build a multireflexology network that treats common conditions therapeutically. Using specially developed, gentle multireflex tools, we enrich our care exponentially. Working on the face (so close to the brain) produces deep results and fast pain relief, without ever causing invasive damages to the skin or body.

Chan'beauté was naturally born after years of treating patients. From daily treatments, the skin improvements were remarkable.


Facial Reflexology for Professionals

The ISMDC Certification Program is divided into several clear and sequential steps.

The pathway always starts with Reflex Module 1.

Following in sequential order, you would then attend ᐈ Pro Module 2 followed by ᐈ Clinic Module 3 then enter into your ᐈ Mastership program where we partner you up with a mentor to discover new pathways in Dien Chan.

You complete each program before moving onto the next one. For example: the Reflex Module 1 is a pre-requisite for attending Pro Module 2 and Pro Module 2 is a pre-requisite for attending Clinic Module 3.

Upon the successful completion of Clinic Module 3, you have graduated our certified facial reflexologist program and qualified to offer professional reflexology services in addition to your current professional designation.

If you are looking to start a brand new profession in the healing art of reflexology, you will need additional reflexology education. These hours vary depending on your respective location and are required for licensing and/or registration. Please refer to our list of qualified schools (TBA).

Core reflexology + ISMDC Certification Program + 50 case histories + 80% on exams, you graduate. The process takes about 18 months if you can dedicate time to your progression. If you have a full time job among other responsibilities, give yourself 24 months.
