A registered reflexologist is a reflexologist who is qualified by a recognised school of training and has signed up for membership with a professional body. There are a few professional bodies in Ireland. I opted to go with the National Register of Reflexologists Ireland (NRRI) as it best suited what I was looking for from memberhsip.
The NRRI was established in 1998 as a registered non-profit making professional body to regulate the practice of reflexology in Ireland as a complementary therapy, through qualified registered members and affiliated schools.
Each member of the NRRI are entitled to use the letters MNRRI after their name, meaning member of National Register of Reflexologists Ireland. They should also have their certificate of membership displayed in their place of work.
The benefits to my clients are;
- I am accredited by private health insurances. This means that clients of mine who have a policy with VHI Healthcare, Irish Life Health, LAYA Healthcare and GLO Health may be eligible for a refund for some of their Reflexology cost. This of course depends on the level of cover you have.
2. As a therapist it is compulsory for me to undergo continuous professional development training (CPD). This means that I am advancing, upskilling and gaining a deeper understanding of reflexology and naturally passing these techniques and knowledge onto my clients.
3. Therapist must adhere to a member’s code of ethics and professional conduct. This ensures that NRRI memebrs recognise that the primary obligation is towards the client, and at all times must practise their skills to the best of their ability for the benefit of the client.
