My whole life I have wanted to help people and in 2018 after being diagnosed with invasive Breast Cancer I was gifted a reflexology treatment and my life hasn't been the same since. I couldn't understand how someone touching my feet could have such a profound impact on me both physically and mentally.

At the end of my cancer treatment I spent a month in India doing a 'Panchakarma' an intense detox for the mind body and soul, fueling my desire to understand the intricacies of the body further.  Since then I have qualified in Hand and Feet reflexology and Indian Head Massage.

This has had an immeasurable impact on my family. I am a single mother to two girls. Lauren is 7 and Isabella is 5. 

Lauren is old enough to remember the chemotherapy and has bouts of anxiety and Isabella is awaiting assessment for autism, she has violent outbursts and is resistant to touch.  Since receiving regular reflexology Lauren sleeps without nightmares and Bella is able to calm more quickly and has fewer outbursts.

 

As yet I haven't specialised although I am very interested in pain and anxiety management, and I am currently doing a case study on the impact of reflexology in Parkinsons.
