Welcome to our website
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.

Our CPD process is aimed at raising the public credibility of reflexology as a complementary therapy and for this reason it has been adopted with enthusiasm by our members engaged in professional practice.

CPD also offers the therapist the opportunity of life-long learning combined with on-going personal development synonymous with an improved quality of life for therapist and clients alike.

With such concepts in mind we have broadened the scope of CPD to a wider spectrum of professional activity, to include literary reviews, conferences and workshops, post-diploma courses, group activities, research projects, and volunteer work of a social o community nature.


Renewal of Full Membership requires: 200 credits biennialy*, of which a minimum of 100 credits must relate to reflexology. (*ITEC graduates or holders of non-Irish diplomas may be requested to renew annually for the first two years of membership, at the discretion of the Registrar).

Our existing CPD and credit rating system is as follows:

  1. An approved practitioner's diploma in reflexology will rate 100 credits valid for 12 months from the date of the diploma. (Students will then require only 100 further credits to renew full membership at the end of their first two-year period).

With regard to written contributions (items 11, 12, and 13 above) publication will always be at the discretion of the editor. In cases where publication has to be deferred for editorial reasons, the credits can be made retrospective if needed to make up the member's annual quota.

For the time being, submissions made for other activities will be rated individually on their perceived merits. They must be made in writing and must be rated in advance of the event.

In today's climate of increasing awareness of health issues a proactive CPD Programme is of vital importance for our public credibility and acceptance.
