ICR RECOGNITION AWARDS
Reflexology is not only a field of service, but it is also about a variety of ways within reflexology that we can serve.
One way to serve, that we all do, is to provide aid or help as we assist those we work on to better health.
A second way is to work for an ideal or to work to accomplish something bigger than ourselves and our special interests. This is accomplished through the donation of one’s time, energy, and finances for the greater good of the field.
At each biennial conference, ICR takes the opportunity to honor those who serve in an outstanding way.
