Happy Anniversary RAC!
In 2006 RAC will be celebrating 30 years of serving the interests of reflexologists!
The theme of the 2006 conference is “Fruitful in Unity”. We will be celebrating the fruits of working together to successfully build RAC into the national association that represents reflexologists. We invite you will unite with us in this celebration.
Our keynote speaker for the conference is Hanne Marquardt, renowned reflexologist and author. Here is a bit of background about Hanne, considered by many as the grandmother of Reflexology in Germany.
Born 1933 in Munich, three children, seven grandchildren, since 1960 living in the Black Forest.
1951-1954 training and exam as State Reg. Nurse (SRN) England.
1955-1957 training in therapeutic massage and breathing therapy.
1958 first information about treatment on the feet by Eunice Ingham's book "Stories the Feet can Tell".
In the following nine years(1958-1967) increasingly more experience in Reflexotherapy of the Feet in hospitals and in her own practice.
1967, after having met Eunice Ingham personally in the USA, made the decision to start teaching.
Since 1970 setting up 15 schools for Reflexotherapy of the Feet in Germany and abroad, one in 1993 as a "social project" in Armenia.
Since 1990 International Teachers Association of her schools with annual meetings and continuous further development of the method.
Publication of several text books on the subject, translated in nine languages.
“I have been given the pleasure of communicating with Hanne.” says RAC’s Fil Lander. “I can tell from our dialogue that RAC participants at the Conference and the Study Days that follow, are in for a rare treat. She is passionate about Reflexology (or Reflexotherapy as she calls it) and a curiosity about life as well as a genuine desire to meet RAC members and visit our country.”
The AGM and conference committee is making progress in bringing you the best conference possible. Carol Faguy, Chiquita Hessels, Fil Lander, Valerie Taylor (RAC accountant) Linda Hughan (Education) and local members Diane Wiebe, Marie Sperling and Carol Hagen are participating on the committee.
The BC Chapter is hosting the event.
There are many factors to consider and we want to make this AGM as inviting and memorable as possible. We have considered affordability, convenience, the setting and the meeting rooms in selecting the location.
This conference will be fragrance/scent free to enhance the pleasure of our surroundings and to allow everyone to participate.
