Dear members,

For more than twelve months there has been uncertainty regarding reflexology practice within the context of government Covid-19 restrictions. Today we are pleased to announce following legal consultations that the NRRI is in a position to advise our members that they are now entitled to resume their practice.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have made many and consistent representations on your behalf to the Department of Health. We have stated our case in writing to the Minister of Health that whether or not a treatment is essential depends on the need and condition of the client and the professional opinion of the therapist. Within these criteria the NRRI Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct in fact require the reflexologist to provide treatment.

In the absence of any response from the Minister or the Department of Health the NRRI has obtained two independent opinions from individual solicitors, both solicitors agree "that reflexologists are entitled to treat patients the same as other medical professionals observing of course the appropriate guidelines".

We fully accept that the restrictions that are currently in place are there to protect us all and keep us safe during this pandemic and we do not advocate going against any Governments guidelines. However with all aspects considered, the NRRI Registrar and Board of Directors in consultation with the NRRI Advisory Council consider that members are now entitled to resume practise.

Whilst this is our recommendation for our members it must be stressed that each and every member of the NRRI must assess their own professional requirements and personal situation and consider each request for reflexology treatment on its merits relative to the condition and needs of the client.

Members should only practise where they can strictly adhere to all health and safety Covid-19 guidelines >>more info here>>

Yours sincerely

NRRI
