Reflexologists say rules proposed in Clark County hurt business

More than 1,000 people in Clark County are reflexologists, according to county estimates.

Han opened the reflexology business a couple of blocks from The Orleans in 2012. Now, she worries that a proposed ordinance will force her and the 10 reflexologists at Happy Feet out of business. She is concerned the proposal would cost her business that comes in late at night, much of it from casino workers after their shifts end.
Clark County officials are concerned that without regulations, illegitimate operators will pose as reflexologists to avoid the more stringent existing requirements to open a massage parlor. Both massage parlors and reflexology businesses have a reputation in the valley as potential places where prostitution can happen.
The Las Vegas City Council in December 2011 tightened regulations for reflexology clinics and massage parlors to combat trafficking.
Reflexologists have to get a county business license but one without any required training or background checks.
Reflexologists provide foot, hand and ear rubs based on the concept that they stimulate reflexes that benefit the body as a whole, providing overall benefits such as boosted circulation and an improved immune system.
The county’s proposal would institute training requirements for certification and restrict the hours of operation for such businesses.
