Reflexology Legislative Update - Washington

Status of the Reflexology Law

The new law takes effect July 1, 2013. It clarifies reflexology’s scope of practice in line with national standards and requires that all certified reflexologists meet educational criteria, including an approved school program and an exam. Currently the Department of Health is in the process of establishing specific training and education standards prior to the implementation of the new law. While the WRA’s interest is to promote the highest standards of training and practice, and to represent reflexology as a unique modality, the DOH is charged with ensuring that the public is protected. The law also empowers the Department of Health to access businesses and with the support of law enforcement, work to eliminate human trafficking and other illicit practices.
