Reflexology Excellence in British Columbia
The RAC British Columbia Chapter was formed by Ollie Bailey prior to 1996. Ollie, a long-time RAC member, initially held monthly meetings in her home.
The mission of the RAC BC Chapter is to advance the understanding and knowledge of Reflexology both for its members and for the public.
We will accomplish this by focusing on education, publicity and activism in local health events and forums. We will provide a supportive environment for mentorship and camaraderie amongst BC practitioners.
The Chapter operates under the umbrella of the Reflexology Association of Canada.
The British Columbia Chapter currently has eight (8) Regional Groups. These groups are intended to provide members with a sense of community and provide opportunities to connect with fellow therapists and attend events in the local areas. The current BC Chapter Regions are:
🟢 Northern BC
🟢 Lower Mainland
🟢 Fraser Valley
🟢 North Island
🟢 South Island
If you can’t find your city listed under a specific Region, please use the next nearest city. RAC BC Chapter Members can find their regional group by logging into their member profile.
RAC is always looking for more Regional Rep’s. Please contact your Chapter at email@example.com if you are interested in joining our beautiful BC Chapter team.
