Welcome to the Association of Reflexologists

Reflexology provision in the UK as of 05/01/2021

The current escalation of Covid-19 cases across the whole UK  requires that we reduce contact with people wherever possible in order to save lives and protect the NHS. Your safety is paramount to us.

From the 6th January 2021, England goes back into a national lockdown and in summary this means that close contact services, including reflexology, must close.

There is one exemption where reflexology can be offered during this lockdown, and that is if it is part of a medical healthcare programme e.g. as instructed by a medical practitioner.

If you have been advised by a doctor that you should receive reflexology, look for an AoR member (i.e. someone with MAR status) – a sign of excellence in reflexology. To find a reflexologist in your area use the button below, or please click here

All of Wales remains at Alert Level 4 and the Government guidance is that all close contact services, including reflexology must close.  Therefore our members have currently paused their business.

As of Tuesday 5th January 2021 the Scottish Government placed mainland Scotland into a temporary lockdown.  This will be reviewed on the 31st January 2021.  The guidance states that close contact services, including reflexology, must not operate.  Therefore our therapists in level 4 areas have paused their businesses.

Northern Ireland
Northern Ireland was put under increased restrictions from 12.01 am on 26 December 2020 for six weeks, with a review after four weeks. This includes the closure of close contact services.
