There are many member nations and through Deshamanya Dr Cyril Antony, Sri Lanka also became a member of the ICR. The needs of the profession are met by providing a forum for the exchange of ideas and information; via quarterly newsletters and international conferences. The Organization and its Members, in pursuit of meeting these needs, are determined to be an example of inclusiveness, respectful consideration, and tolerance for any reflexology theory, technique, and practitioner. Every year the last week of September is regarded as the World Reflexology Week, where many programmes are conducted across the globe by ICR members.
