Welcome to the Association of Reflexologistslogo in circle

Delivering Excellence in Reflexology for Highly Qualified Reflexologists and Members of the Public since 1984

 

Offering the quality mark “MAR” to Full Members, the Association of Reflexologists (AoR) provides professional advice, support and guidance to Reflexologists and members of the public. The AoR was established in 1984 and is an  independent and non-profit making organisation supporting members worldwide. Through regular consultation with industry bodies and advisory groups, we do our utmost to maintain high standards of practice within the industry and be at the forefront of expertise for our members. We are proud to be a community of professional therapists, dedicated to excellence in Reflexology.

 

What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a complementary therapy that is based on the theory that different points and areas on the feet, lower leg, hands, face and ears correspond with different areas of the body. Reflexology is an ancient therapy which has been practised for over 5000 years and we believe that working these points or areas can help aid relaxation, improve mood, release tension, enhance sleep and can generally help improve wellbeing; allowing us to cope better with the stresses that life can bring.

We acknowledge that every person is unique and some people find other things improve as well - the only way to know if reflexology will help you is to try it!

To find out more about reflexology have a look at our interactive foot chart and hand chart or to watch videos about how reflexology can help visit our YouTube channel.
