In my journey toward wellness I eventually became pain-free, I was exercising more and I achieved a healthier weight. I had more energy and found my zest for life. I realised that wellness and authenticity went hand in hand and I had a growing desire to help others on their wellness journey. I chose reflexology as my starting point and for its capacity for restoring balance to mind and body.
As a graduate of Science, reflexology resonated with me even more as its foundation in modern times is based on scientific research. I found a teacher who had studied with the nephew of Eunice Ingham (a pioneer of reflexology) and on completion of my diploma (with distinction), I had the opportunity to study with another pioneer Hanne Marquardt.
I engage in continuous professional development to keep informed in the best practices in reflexology, for example, when used in cancer care, pain relief, pregnancy and fertility care. During 2020 COVID-19 pandemic I completed all the W.H.O. courses in infection prevention measures and I completed The Science of Wellbeing course provided by Yale University. I’m a member of Irish Reflexologists’ Institute Ltd. (I.R.I.L.).
