Some years after traveling from New Zealand to England to study Massage and Aromatherapy I felt that while I was helping people there was something missing and that I could help them more. It was around 1993 in England and there was a rather large article in a national newspaper insert about reflexology. I kept the article and re-read it many times. The person they had interviewed for this, unfortunately, lived too far away for me to train with so the search began for somewhere closer to home to train. In 1994 I found somewhere and the journey began. A few weeks into my classes our tutor said: “Those of you that provide massage by the end of this class will know if you are a massage therapist that provides reflexology or if you are a reflexologist that provides massage”. At the time this didn’t make sense to me, however by half way through my course I understood what she was saying and found myself indeed to be a reflexologist that provided massage. I found I had many wonderful things happening for clients when I was completing my case studies and many of my regular clients decided that reflexology gave them not just better, but longer lasting results. Over the years I have attended many continuing education classes and prior to coming to the USA also taught both practitioner, interest and continued education classes. Continuing to practice over the years in many settings both corporate, in private hospitals, over 55 communities and even on the sidelines for an Australian Football team for the end of a season just before coming to the USA.
Twenty-five years on and I love reflexology probably more now than when I first started. I see so many people who truly feel the benefits of this wonderful dance we perform on the feet and hands.
