I have often been asked why I do what I do. To be honest, when I was taking my Health Care Aide training I had told my instructor that I had no problems at all with any of my job duties that might be considered unpleasant. However, I did tell her that I wasn’t sure if I could deal with people’s feet. Oddly, after my first couple of “foot rubs” for seniors, I changed my mind. I found it to be the most rewarding and intimate time spent with one another in either meaningful conversation or peaceful silence. It seemed to bring great relief and comfort to all those whom I was entrusted to serve. It is now my greatest privilege and gift to be able to offer Reflexology sessions for you.
I have had a wide variety of training and certification of courses. Some of these include: Basic Holistic Foot Reflexology, Advanced Reflexology, Basic Hand Reflexology, A.R.T. (Advanced Reflexology Techniques—Tony Porter from England), CranialSacral Reflexology, Stathis Method of Ayurvedic Reflexology, Phase I & II Reflexology from the International Institute of Reflexology in the U.S., Kansa Vatki Foot Massage; Thai Reflexology; Reflexology and Meridian Therapy (Moving The Energy I & II); CranialSacral Therapy, Healing Pathways Phase I & II; Touch For Health I; and Health Care Aide.
As you can see, there are a vast array of reflexology techniques incorporated into daily health stemming from ancient cultures around the world. My goal, as your Reflexologist, is to learn from as many cultures and knowledgeable instructors as I can so that I can provide you with top quality Reflexology sessions and with a modality that best suits you. My aim is to relax your body to promote it’s own ability for self-healing and to return it to a balanced homeostasis necessary for the harmonious functioning of all the body’s systems.
