American Reflexology Certification Board ®

Setting the highest testing standards to which Professional Reflexologists aspire since 1991.
Due to the uncertainty of when and how much the COVID-19 will affect the US population, the ARCB is suspending all testing until further notice. We will notify you as conditions change.

As a professional reflexologist who is certified by and registered with the ARCB® I shall:

  1. Adhere to the ARCB® Code of Ethics and work within the guidelines of the federal, state, and local laws including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
  2. Not diagnose or treat specific conditions in practice, marketing materials, or verbal statements.
  3. Make available my professional certificates along with the ARCB®Code of Ethics.
  4. Make available a full and fair disclosure of services statement, a disclaimer, and a notice of complaint.
  5. Communicate to the client policies regarding fees, scheduling procedures, hours, the result of tardiness on the part of the client, and missed appointments.
  6. Have the client read and sign a contract for services form before the first session begins.
  7. Complete a health history form with the client.
  8. Explain what reflexology is and what the client can expect before a session. When combining other disciplines (within your scopes of practice) with reflexology clearly state that you are doing so.
  9. Maintain a record of clients’ names and contact information.
  10. Maintain financial records and bills up-to-date; furnish a written receipt upon request.
  11. Remain committed to continued reflexology education and professional development.

Any breach of the Professional Business Standards could be grounds for termination of ARCB® certification. Termination shall result in surrender and return to the ARCB®, the ARCB® pin, certificate, I.D. card, and forego the use of the title, “ARCB®Nationally Board Certified Reflexologist” (NBCR).
