Practitioners who attain reflexology certification distinguish themselves as professionals in the field of reflexology. Attaining national certification demonstrates that the practitioner has received training through an accredited program and conforms to accepted competency standards of patient care.
The American Reflexology Certification Board (ARCB) certification examination is offered to therapists who have successfully completed 110 hours of reflexology course training through an accredited educational program and completed 90 reflexology therapy sessions. Practitioners who pass the standard reflexology examination can apply to sit for the hand reflexology examination after completing an additional 30 hours of coursework and 20 hand reflexology sessions. Reflexology certification can vary from state to state.
