Why Join RIHHA ?

It’s pretty obvious – In order to be the best we can be – Practitioner’s need to belong to their local & national Associations.  This is good information for all, but particularly practitioners that fall under the ‘Unlicensed Health Care Act’ passed in Rhode Island (2002).  It legalizes the practice of unlicensed health care practitioners at this time, but is subject to change.  We must be vigilant. (see my document below – feel free to copy and use in your practice).  We’ve had to defend this document several times throughout the years.
Membership tells the world that you’re a Professional, want to be involved, and, kept up-to-date with all things concerning your Practice. 
MOST important, is that our Associations are there for advice, and help when other licensed therapies have decided that we should be “under” their umbrella.  In Rhode Island, we also have the RI Holistic Healing Association  –  to Inspire – Educate &  Empower Holistic Practitioners and their professions through Education, Public Awareness and Community. When threatened, by other therapies, RIHHA members have been a great help.  As a reflexologist, I can speak from experience as we’ve struggled to stay separate from others who want our money and our members over the years.  www.RIHHA.org
And – wait – there’s something more… Rhode Island also has a Health & Wellness Guide’, put out each year by Sheryl Rachmil.  You can have a FREE listing in the Guide and there’s also the opportunity to put in a bigger ad (at a cost).  The guide is available in R.I. & nearby MA & CT.  www.riwellnessguide.com
Another BIG PLUS for us is the proof these associations, brochures and guides give us as a legitimate practice.  When I get a new client, I give them a packet that contains my brochure, a copy of the R.I. Unlicensed Health Care Bill” and a Wellness Guide.  I also place a copy of the Guide, a RARI Brochure, a RIHHA Brochure, and the Identifying the Professional Reflexology Practice Brochure on a table in my reflexology area.
