Becoming a Reflexologist

The Reflexology Association of America does not recommend or endorse schools or instructors, nor do we set educational curriculum for schools. Rather, as the country's only national reflexology membership organization, our role is to establish Standards and Ethics by which to develop a scope of practice for our Professional members, in addition to serving our members and their interests.

Choosing a School

Choosing a reflexology school is a serious decision, one that first requires that you ask yourself what you plan to do with your reflexology education and skills.

  • Do I want to provide a relaxing reflexology session to friends and family at no cost?
  • Do I want to open a clinical practice and charge for my services?
  • Do I want to provide sessions only for relaxation or do I want the training to address imbalances clients may experience?
  • Does the state I live in require that I have a license in order to practice or is reflexology regulated by cities?  Please contact your State Association for the latest state requirements. If your state does not have a Reflexology Association, you may contact RAA for further assistance. (You may download a list of State Associations and their websites here).
  • What sort of credentials do I want to hold?

Other questions you might like to explore:

  • What subjects, other than applied reflexology, are covered in the program?
  • Is the program taught from a particular perspective, i.e. allopathic, energetic, western, eastern?
  • What are the instructor's qualifications and experience?
  • How many hours is the reflexology program?
  • Is the program in-person, online, or a combination?

Points to keep in mind as you make your choice:

  • To qualify as a Professional Reflexology Practitioner member, RAA requires 200+ hours of training in reflexology.
  • To be eligible to sit for national certification in reflexology, the American Reflexology Certification Board – the only national, non-profit, independent certifying agency in the country – requires that you have at least 110 hours of classroom instruction in reflexology.
  • RAA recommends that you contact the American Reflexology Certification Board (ARCB) and/or the National Council for Reflexology Educators (NCRE) for further information.
