Fascinated with the art and science of reflexology from personal experience, Mia Earl (TN) studied the Ingham Method of reflexology with the International Institute of Reflexology and was certified in 2008. Her educational pursuits culminated in a Ph.D. in Natural Health in June 2009, after having earned a Master’s degree in Public Health: Community Health Education from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. She is also a Certified Health Education Specialist.
In full-time practice since 2011, Mia delights in speaking on reflexology and touching lives with the gift of her hands. Her stated mission is to help enhance lives and create a healthy environment for well-being.
Mia was elected to the RAA Board in 2012, highly qualified to play a key leadership role from having served on Boards of several other local and national organizations. She currently serves as co-Chair of the Events committee, and has served as President, Treasurer, Chair of the State Affiliation committee and co-Chair of the Membership committee. Her vision is to see RAA continue the highest professional standards for the practice of reflexology, increase the number of people who are educated about the benefits of reflexology, expand the public’s access to reflexology services, and have reflexology increasingly used as a complementary therapy within the health care system. Mia hopes to help create a unified voice with practitioners to strengthen the impact of reflexology around the world.
