Today, complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) therapies are one of the fastest growing areas of healthcare worldwide. As a result, qualified Reflexologists with the highest credentials are being sought by the public and the health care industry. In order to promote reflexology through testing and recognition of competent professional practitioners, ARCB® was founded in 1991. ARCB® is a non-profit certifying agency which exists to protect the public and promote reflexology through certification of those Reflexologists who practice on a professional basis and choose to be certified as meeting basic national standards. ARCB® is the only certifying agency recognized by the Reflexology Association of America. We are not affiliated with any school and do not endorse any specific reflexology training curriculum. Our study materials and test have been approved by several state and local government agencies as a basis for licensing Reflexologists. ARCB® exams are based on psychometrically valid models reviewed by industry experts. Achieving and maintaining national certification from ARCB® provides the public and your employer or affiliates with the assurance that you have achieved the highest level of certification available in the United States today and that you abide by a code of ethics and business practices recognized nationally by many law enforcement and government agencies. In keeping with industry and professional standards, effective January 1, 2020, all applicants will be required to pass a background check before taking the examination. By achieving certification you are also eligible to receive client referrals through ARCB®.
