My interest in complementary and alternative healing therapies came while searching for relief of my own stress and anxiety related symptoms. I was introduced to reflexology in 2011and quickly became fascinated to learn how the feet hold an intricate map of reflex areas that correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. I love how reflexology promotes relaxation, improves circulation, reduces pain, detoxifies and encourages overall healing.
I have become a strong believer that balancing the mind, body and spirit is essential to my health. After experiencing reflexology first hand and seeing the benefits, it inspired me to continue my journey of healing. In 2014, after two and a half years of study I became certified in reflexology. Today, I am grateful to have a part time practice where I can help others. Since then, I’ve obtained my Master Level in Reiki and more currently my certification as a Certified Clinical Aromatherapist.
Reiki is holistic, working on the mind, body & spirit. It is the highest and most profound vibration of life. It is pure unconditional love and joy.
Reiki Level 1 is the pathway and is open to anyone who wishes to learn what Reiki is, the history, self-treatment and the treatment of others.
No experience needed, only a passion for connecting deeper into yourself and the world around you.
