The Professional Reflexologist Branching Out

Dear RAoA Members and other Natural Therapists,

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to our 13th National Conference, which will be held at Novotel Glen Waverley on the 17th - 19th October 2014. 

The conference committee is promising you an experience that you all will not only remember but it will be one from which you will also take away valuable new skills ie. building your business in a professional manner. There will be something for everyone to gain from attending this conference!

Our aim for you

To elevate the status of Reflexology and other modalities Australia wide.

What you can expect

The aim is to inspire and empower all of us to integrate our profession into the community and become recognised in the Allied Health Care System. Our theme is 'The Professional Reflexologist branching out' and you can expect the conference to be a showcase on how to do exactly that. Many of us are already working alongside the medical world and we would like to tap into this experience and learn from it. 

This conference will help build your confidence & teach you ways to build your business in a professional manner. There is so much more potential and talent amongst us Natural Therapists and we need to align ourselves with the business side of our profession. 

It is time for change and a different mindset.

The Melbourne Conference Committee is looking forward welcoming you to Melbourne in October 2014.
