Reflexology New Zealand is the National Reflexology Association for Professional Reflexologists in New Zealand and is affiliated to the New Zealand Charter of Health Practitioners. RNZ operates as a non-profit, non-political, professional body to support its members.
Historically there were two Reflexology Associations NZRA and NZIR in New Zealand. The committees of these two Associations decided to amalgamate in 2001 to form RNZ.
When a Practitioner applies for Professional membership their qualifications are examined and accreditation certificates issued when they meet the education standards. By choosing a Professional member of Reflexology New Zealand the public are offered reassurance that their care is being provided by a qualified Practitioner. Other membership categories include Affiliate and Student, membership is open to anyone with an interest in Reflexology.
The Professional body of Reflexology New Zealand Incorporated (RNZ) is committed to achieving excellence in the delivery of Reflexology by its members, as a healthcare modality of beneficial contribution, to the New Zealand community.
RNZ professional members are supported to develop and maintain high standards of reflective practice through ongoing education, research, communication, peer support and professional registration.
