ICR COUNTRY COORDINATORS
ICR is reaching around the world with an initiative to have an ICR Coordinator in all countries where reflexology is practiced. This large team of country representatives now totals 54 coordinators with more countries joining each day.
These representatives are the first-line of contact to ICR within their respective countries. They support ICR in organizational tasks, in the coverage of social media and public relations in their languages, and in the development of networks and partnerships with national and regional reflexology institutions in their country.
Although they come from different cultures and continents, they all share the same goal of bringing reflexologists together and creating a worldwide network that will allow reflexology to go further and help reflexologists around the world.
This project started in 2020 after World Reflexology Week and the pilot project was developed together with several Ibero-American countries. Today, a year later, this project includes reflexologists from all over the world. The 4 official languages are English, French, Portuguese and Spanish and all countries are allocated into groups according to time zone and language.

2021 ICR WORD REFLEXOLOGY WEEK
Are you planning to Celebrate ICR WRW ?
WRW 2021 will be from the 20th to the 26th of September.
It will be a week dedicated to reflexology with the commitment of “Keeping Reflexologists Around the World in Touch”.
This year WRW will be immediately after the ICR Online International Conference – 18th and 19th of September.
We would very much like to repeat the success of WRW 2020 and for that we count on the participation of everyone – reflexologists, teacher associations, academie, students etc. Instead of a mega event, why not create local events, supported by ICR and its Country Coordinators, because together we can promote greater public awareness of reflexology around the globe.
You may promoting Reflexology through conferences, local lectures, discounted sessions and free mini-sessions and open days to various groups and volunteer associations – in hundreds of localities and hopefully, in a neighborhood near you.
If you can plan at least one activity and schedule it sometime during the last week of September, you can be part of this global awareness.
To help promote World Reflexology Week, ICR has developed a package that will help you create and market your event.
Please remember to include the ICR WRW logo on your promotional material for your event.
Do you know that WRW was the brain child of ICR President, Bill Flocco, who developed the program including all the information, graphics and handouts. In 1999 the Governor of the State of Hawaii proclaimed the last full week of September as World Reflexology Week.
2021 ICR ONLINE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
ICR Conferences are held every second year with the last one being in Anchorage Alaska, USA in 2019.
This year as with all such events it is being held online.
6 speakers, all of whom are experts in their fields will speak about Reflexology & Trauma.
But the conference will be much more. You will have the opportunity to interact with the speaker, attend to book launch sessions and meet the newly appointed ICR Country Coordinators.

REFLEXOLOGY AT INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S WEEK
March 8 is International Women’s Day.
ICR created “International Women’s Week” because one day is not enough to talk about how reflexology can help women in each of the most important phases of their lives.
From March 7 to 13, 2021, we will have a round table, several presentations in Portuguese and Spanish, and the opportunity to learn techniques to work on some specific conditions that affect women, related to fertility and sexuality.
