ARCB National Board Certification (NBCR)

The American Reflexology Certification Board (ARCB) will be testing National Certificants in Greensboro, NC on December 8, 2018  for the foot and hand reflexology exam.
• See all current ARCB testing dates and locations here.
NCRA continues to be in the forefront of State Association sponsorship for Professional Reflexology training and will continue to offer testing in our state as qualified applicants complete coursework.
ARCB is an independent certifying body testing professionals since 1991 offering the only psychometrically valid testing by an independent testing agency in the US. 

(ARCB’s story).

We are often asked the questions, What education is required for the Reflexologist? What is needed? Where does one go to learn Reflexology. While we cannot endorse or advise concerning any curriculum, school or instructor, please visit our  website:  https://reflexology-school-listings.com/ for answers to many questions and for assistance in deciding on a course of study.

It is wise to investigate. How long does it take to complete the program? Does the program offer certification or diploma of completion upon conclusion of a course beyond the introductory level? Will the course prepare the student for national certification? What are the current requirements in North Carolina in order to practice reflexology and in order to teach Reflexology? What is the instructor(s) background in reflexology?

What subjects are covered? Will anatomy and physiology of the body correlated to reflexology be part of the training? Anatomy and physiology of the lower leg and foot? reflexology theory and history? Hands-on technique? Business practices including documentation and ethics? Is there supervised classroom or clinical work?

Many massage schools teach foot massage and not reflexology or give introductory courses. Massage uses different techniques and is considered a separate discipline (the White House Commission on  Complementary and Alternative Medicine Report treats reflexology as a stand-alone practice). However, for a course within a massage school a total number of 200 hours devoted strictly to reflexology are recommended in order to qualify for testing by the American Reflexology Certification Board.. 

The ARCB states, “Everyday through media attention, reflexology is gaining more recognition from the public as people discover its benefits. The field of reflexology at the same time has the responsibility of protecting the public through the recognition of competent practitioners and the continual upgrading of standards in the field.”
