Reflexology Professional Organisations

The Association of Reflexologists

A non-profit making organisation, the AoR, the professional body for reflexology in the UK, exists to promote and progress reflexology providing support for more than six and a half thousand members throughout the UK and overseas (qualified practitioners, or those undergoing training for a professional qualification).

MAR stands for Member of the Association of Reflexologists. These practitioners are Full members of the AoR and as such are trained to standards agreed by the AoR.

International Institute of Reflexology

Modern Reflexology was first researched and developed by Eunice Ingham, the pioneer of this field. This organisation offers training in The Ingham Method® of Reflexology which is the result of the combined work of the late Eunice Ingham and her nephew Dwight C. Byers, leading authority on Foot Reflexology.

Following the merger of the International Institute of Reflexology (IIR) with the AoR it was agreed that full members of the IIR will be designated as such with IIR after their name.

International Federation of Reflexologists

The International Federation of Reflexologists, working closely with the Reflexology Forum, aims to achieve common high standards of Reflexology practice for all reflexologists, both in the U.K and worldwide.

British Reflexology Association

The British Reflexology Association was founded in 1985 to act as a representative body for persons practising the method of Reflexology as a profession and for students training in the method.

Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council

In the United Kingdom, reflexology is now regulated on a voluntary basis by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). Registrants must have full public and professional liability insurance and additional annual courses are a condition of re-registration.
