Director and Chairperson Conference Committee: Gina Stewart (Canada)

Gina's Reflexology journey began in 1999 with the Reflexology Association of Canada where she also certified as a Foot Reflexology Instructor. She is currently a member of the Registered Reflexology Council of Ontario (RRCO). She has had a busy practice for the past fifteen years and is an active member at her local chapter, where she enjoys attending meetings and networking with other therapists. For that same reason she joined ICR allowing her to refresh herself professionally by attending the association's biennial international conferences in Portugal, South Africa and the UK.

Gina’s profession has taken her across the globe, as she regularly organizes humanitarian trips and has volunteered with Reflexology in Central and South America. She has travelled far and wide to volunteer her services in a remote Inuit community in the northern part of her own country. Her passion is to encourage others to journey with her and to give back to communities on a global scale. Both a rewarding experience and occasion for personal and professional growth in the field. Her articles have been published in the Canadian Journal of Reflexology, and in both RRCO’S and ICR’s newsletters. Gina is the recipient of ICR's 2015 humanitarian award. She is also dedicated to promoting Reflexology in her community and is responsible for hosting a yearly holistic health fair that features local Therapists. Her modalities include Facial and Maternity Reflexology, Colour Therapy, Therapeutic Massage and Nutrition. Further training in Reflexology include Hanna Marquadt and Manzaneres Method of Reflexology.
