Professional Bodies & Schools

Irish Reflexologists’ Institute

The Irish Reflexologists’ Institute is Irelands largest Reflexologists’ Association and Reflexology awarding body. The IRI is actively involved in establishing the highest standards of Reflexology Teaching and Practitioner training in Ireland. The IRI is strongly linked to world Reflexology associations and in 2006 organized and hosted the 50th(RIEN) European Conference on Reflexology with speakers and participants from all over the world. The Institute actively promotes the coming together and sharing of Reflexology and the building of a Reflexology community. It works very hard on behalf of its members to keep them informed and to gain membership benefits. It has succeeded in having VHI accept Reflexology onto its awarding Scheme. The Institute gives seminars on Reflexology at the Royal College of Surgeons. The Irish Reflexologists Institute is a warm and supportive Institute of which Green Tara is proud to be part off. Reflexology students are automatically enrolled as student members by the College and are encouraged to become full members upon qualification.

Green Tara is an ITEC certified College which offers ITEC training in Holistic Massage, Anatomy & Physiology, Reflexology & Reiki 3 Practitioners.
