Definition​ of Reflexology

​Written in 2019 in conjunction with RAA, ARCB, NCRE and the RAA Delegate Assembly

 

Reflexology, an integrative health practice, maps a reflection of the body predominantly on the feet, hands and outer ears. It uses unique manual techniques to deliver pressure to neural pathways assisting the body to function optimally.​

Guiding intention through the process:

The definition would:

  • Be succinct, clearly expressed, easily understood.

  • Suitable terminology for all 50 States.

  • Scientifically valid

  • Non-defensive. Meaning language within the definition would not include reasons why the modality itself is valuable.

  • Does not include scope of practice.
