The Emerging Job Market for Reflexologists
Consulting and physician referrals
Are there any jobs in reflexology? A quick "No" would have been the response to such a question not too long ago. Now, there is some indication that reflexology jobs are emerging with the acceptance of alternative health practices by many traditional medical organizations.
In England, jobs as consultants and referrals from physicians followed insurance company payment for reflexology sessions beginning in 1991. A similar pattern is evolving in the US currently. A Los Angeles-area reflexologist was approached by Kaiser-Permanente, a large health maintenance organization (HMO), for physician referral this fall. A San Diego area reflexologist is now developing a reflexology program for an HMO.
