Hello all!

This is a time for Health Roots and its clients to celebrate and to see that all the work that has been done over past years is coming to fruition.

In the last few days we have received confirmation from Green Shield Insurance that they are now covering Reflexology treatments given by RCRT practitioners so, for almost 1.5 million Canadians, Reflexology now becomes a more affordable option. As one of the largest Health insurance companies in Canada Green Shield coverage is a positive recognition of both the profession of Reflexology and the Reflexology Association of Canada and vindicates all the efforts we have continually made to reach this point.

This is only the beginning and we believe that with the Green Shield decision we have seen the thin edge of the wedge that will lead to recognition by more and more of the major insurance companies.

Let your employers know that Green Shield offers this coverage and that you want to have this therapy added to your plan if it is not already.

We have prepared letters available here at the Centre or available by fax or email as well, to aid you in the requests to your employer.

 Enjoy your new benefits folks!

 Thank you!


From the Health Roots Team
