The Reflexology Association of America (RAA) will be hosting its biennial conference in Orlando, Florida on May 4th through the 6th this year. RAA, the largest and most recognized association of reflexologists in the United States, is a non-profit corporation with membership open to all reflexolgists. The organization’s goals are to advance its members’ interests through public relations and lobbying efforts, and to serve as a national referral board for its member practitioners.
Whether you are a seasoned reflexologist or just exploring your interest, I really hope to see you there. Conference details are available here, and there are a couple of specific issues that I’d like to bring to your attention right now regarding the event.
One of the more appreciated activities of the RAA conferences is the “Share”, a time set aside where attendees can exchange reflexology sessions. It’s a great opportunity to receive some work (sometimes a very different style from what you practice, too) and get to know a fellow practitioner from elsewhere in the country. If you plan to attend the conference and are within driving distance of Orlando, please can you bring your massage table or reflexology recliner? We really need those! If you can help out, please let Maureen Birchfield know at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 1st.
The second item is this: If you have been thinking about learning Thai Foot Reflexology, then Orlando might be a good place and time to consider. I will be offering this very popular workshop following the RAA conference on May 7th and 8th. (You do not have to attend the conference in order to take the training.)
So, again, I really hope to see you at the RAA conference this year. (Make sure to come up and say hi.) As nice as blog posts, Facebook comments and emails are, nothing beats meeting face-to-face.
