: : : I am interested in getting certified to practice reflexology, as well as acupressure techniques. The problem is finding a decent local school to attend. I live in Passaic County, New Jersey, and am fairly in the middle of everything: upstate NY, NJ, (didn't really want to attend classes in NYC, but will as a last resort.) Any input? I'd appreciate it. THANKS!
: : Part of where to study depends on where you want to practice. Requirements vary depending on the state. For example, New Jersey doesn't yet have any certification requirements. New York State has specific requirements. I'm not sure about Pennsylvania.
: : If you plan on doing any Reflexology in New York, it would be a good idea to find out the state requirements. There are several good schools in NYC including Laura Norman and Associates. They advertise in several publications such as New Jersey Naturally (can be found in many health food stores).
: : There is also national certification through the following organization:
: : American Reflexology Certification Board
: : P.O. Box 620607
: : Littleton CO 80162
: : (303) 933-6921
: : They are NOT affiliated with any school and only do certifications. I am not sure if any states recognize their certification. Your best bet is to contact them.

: >>THANKS FOR YOUR HELP. I HAVE BEEN RESEARCHING A FEW OF THE SCHOOLS, AND HAVE DECIDED TO GO WITH A NEW JERSEY CERT. SINCE NY IS A LONG DRIVE, AND HAVE FOUND A FEW MASSAGE THERAPY SCHOOLS WHICH TEACH REFLEXOLOGY IN THEIR CURRICULUM. IT'S TOUGH DECIDING ON A SCHOOL, AND NOT KNOWING WHICH ONES HAVE THE BETTER INSTRUCTORS AND CLASSES, ETC. SO FAR, HEALING HANDS INSTITUTE IN WESTWOOD SEEMS DECENT.
: AGAIN, THANKS FOR RESPONDING.
I live in the Virginia and am currently studying body reflexology. Can you tell me who I can contact in Virginia to find out if there are regulations to practice reflexology? Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
