2016 USA Reflexology Definition

The Reflexology Association of America (RAA) Board is excited to announce that after months of discussion, research and collaborative thought we have a new definition of Reflexology in the United States!

This is a big step for the field of reflexology; the first time all three national organizations representing the testing, membership and educational arms of our field have agreed to and written one definition that we can all get behind.

The three largest Reflexology organizations, the American Reflexology Certification Board (ARCB), the National Council of Reflexology Educators (NCRE) and the Reflexology Association of America (RAA) have all agreed to adopt the following definition:

Reflexology is a protocol of manual techniques, such as thumb and finger-walking, hook and backup and rotating-on-a-point, applied to specific reflex areas predominantly on the feet and hands. These techniques stimulate the complex neural pathways linking body systems, supporting the body’s efforts to function optimally. The effectiveness of reflexology is recognized worldwide by various national health institutions and the public at large as a distinct complementary practice within the holistic health field.
