About the Group
The Auckland Reflexology group had small beginnings, with notices being placed in the Community notices of suburban newspapers to attract local practitioners. It has grown substantially and members are drawn from all over Auckland.
The Auckland group has coordinated and hosted two of the Reflexology New Zealand (RNZ) National Conferences, in 2005, 2010, and 2015, with local and international speakers and experts in their field being drawn from within the Reflexology world and other related topics.We look forward to hosting the Conference once again in 2021.
We also organise regular workshops, which to date have included Fertility Reflexology, Maternity Reflexology, Ear Reflexology, Hand Reflexology, Vertical Reflexology, Cancer care, Menopause, Metamorphosis and others.
Many of the members of our group are service providers for Sweet Louise, a foundation that was launched in 2006, with the primary purpose of improving the well-being and quality of life for New Zealanders, predominantly women, living with secondary breast cancer. Our group works actively with this foundation and promotes their invaluable work.
The Auckland Group represent RNZ at local events, such as the Kumeu Show and other such events, offering taster reflexology sessions to those attending. Our members are also actively involved in their local communities, offering workshops in schools, speaking at ladies events and local libraries.
