My interest in complementary therapies started a few years ago after being introduced to Reiki for help with stress. I initially trained in Reiki and I wanted to research and explore other healing therapies which then guided me to Reflexology. In 2013 I began training with the Three Shires School of Reflexology, who were offering the new and highest reflexology qualification with Centralia at QCF level 5 including QCF level 4 qualifications in Anatomy, Pathology and Physiology for reflexology. This training incorporated advanced techniques for specific conditions and pregnancy and fertility. I qualified in Aug 2014.
Reflexology can be many things to many people, but please don’t think of it as a foot massage. Reflexology is a precise complementary therapy, not to be confused with beauty treatment. Nor thought of as an alternative to conventional medicine, but as complementary to any medical treatment being received. Reflexologists do not claim to cure or to diagnose.
