World Reflexology Week 2022, 19th – 25th September 2022

World Reflexology Week (WRW) is an ICR (International Council of Reflexologists) initiative that takes place during the last full of September each year and was established in 1999 at the ICR conference in Hawaii.

Every year in the last week of September, Reflexologists around the world organise events to celebrate World Reflexology Week, to promote awareness of our wonderful therapy.

What will you do to promote World Reflexology Week?  We’d love to hear about any events organized by BRA Members! Please email us with any details at bra@britreflex.co.uk

Sustainable Healthcare Day, 6th April 2022

This year, on April 6, The BRA and its partners in the Integrated Healthcare Collaborative, are supporting the establishment of Sustainable Healthcare Day. 

Sustainable Healthcare is one of the most crucial issues facing us as a population. We want you to join us in starting a national conversation about all aspects of this issue, and help to raise it up the political agenda.

We all have a duty to ensure that our healthcare is provided in ways which are sustainable individually, financially, and environmentally. Every one of us is a stakeholder in our own individual health, and in that of our planet. We all have a voice, and a contribution to make. 

In supporting this first Sustainable Healthcare Day, we want the general public, local communities, scientists, businesses, organisations, medical professionals and politicians to all put forward their vision, their priorities, and how each can play their part. 

We will be asking you to share your stories about how you are making a contribution to a more sustainable healthcare system. Share your ideas about where we should focus our efforts. It could be small things which you do daily to support your own sustainable individual health, local community projects which you run, or greater policy or strategic work which your business or organisation undertakes. The more stakeholders whose voices are heard, the more inclusive and effective our solutions will be.

Sustainable healthcare needs wider publicity, and greater action from decision-makers. On April 6, join the national conversation about how we can take action. Help us bring this key issue to the forefront of the healthcare agenda.
