What is a
Registered Canadian Reflexology Therapist (RCRT™)?
A Registered Canadian Reflexology Therapist (RCRT™) is a professional reflexology therapist who has been properly trained in the techniques of reflexology and/or specialized protocols.
RCRT™s are subject to the highest level of competency through professional level of training and continuing education and are working within RAC’s Standard of Practice and professional Code of Conduct.
The Association ensures that all professionals who bear the federally-trademarked designation of RCRT™, abide by these procedures. In this aim, we are protecting the profession as well as the public’s interest and safety.

What people say about reflexology
I am an 82-year old woman who has suffered from back pain for years and it has kept getting worse. I started reflexology treatments in May 2015. After 15 treatments, I no longer use a walker unless I am going a very long distance. Thank you to Dorothy Sammit, RCRT and to reflexology for making my life more comfortable
Arsenia Marchildon from Ontario
Thank you Quinn Straza, RCRT! Your natural healing gifts in reflexology have helped my pain management for my C7 bulging disc and nerve pain, while I work on my strength. It's so calming, comforting, and feels great! I was surprised that my neuro surgeon recommended reflexology as an add-on to my natural alternative plan to hopefully avoid surgery. Glad to have you as part of my program.
