Reflexology Associations In America & Their Purposes
One of the features of a profession is that it has professional organizations, professional standards for practitioners, as well as professional standards for teachers and schools. Reflexology is one of the few natural health modalities in America to have all three. What follows is a list of professional organizations in America and their purposes. Since the American Academy of Reflexology is a Licensed Vocational School under the State of California, the state level Reflexology Association for California is also listed.
