Welcome to the Association of Reflexologists

Covid-19 Coronavirus

  Update 10th July 2020

After the announcement made by the government yesterday, 9th July 2020, we are pleased to say that the businesses outlined by the Government do now include those that involved close physical contact for prolonged periods of time, and so this would include foot reflexology. Therefore, this Government statement indicates that foot reflexology treatments can resume in England from Monday 13th July.

However, please note: facial reflexology remains, for the moment, restricted within our guidelines as they require the therapist to be in the high-risk transmission zone; we will review this position as soon as there are any further changes in Government guidance.

We strongly recommend that you do not do hand reflexology for the moment, as you will be working within the high-risk transmission area, and therefore it may put your own safety at risk. Again, we will review this in light of changes in government guidelines.

There will however still be circumstances that require additional caution. Government guidance is changing regarding the clinically extremely vulnerable on August 1st so please do keep up to date with those changes and consult the AoR ‘Can I Treat’ chart if you are in doubt.

Of course, it will be a personal decision when you choose to return to practice based on your situation and your own view of risk. We will be here to support you with whatever decision you take.

On behalf of everyone here at the AoR, we are hoping you all remain safe and in good health during this next complex phase. Please be assured we will continue to do as much as we can for you all as our members, supplying you with as much information and support as possible.

With sincere best wishes

Carolyn Story
