To qualify as a Professional member, practitioners must have a minimum of 300 hours of reflexology training, 60% of which must have been taken in a live classroom setting. The Reflexology Association of America encourages, but does not require, professional members to acquire national certification from an independent, non-profit agency that meets the criteria set by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCAA) and the National Organization for Competency Assurance (NOCA). National certification has always been considered an option. Those members who once held or currently hold a national board certification are acknowledged below.
It is the sole responsibility of the individual reflexologist to know the current laws that regulate the practice of reflexology within the state one is practicing. Laws vary from state to state and are subject to change. Some states have licensure or registration laws, others provide exemption laws, and some states allow reflexology to be regulated by local municipalities. It is recommended that you first review the current publicized list of US laws and then follow up by contacting your State Office of Professions and/or your local government agencies that regulate businesses where you practice.
