Why did I decide to become a Reflexologist?
I have always loved to learn new modalities to help improve the health of others. I believe that most people who study various types of holistic health do so because they themselves have experienced chronic pain, stress, and unforeseen health issues. They want to help others avoid, or at least control, these challenges, as they themselves have learned to do.
I have always been interested in healing modalities such as reflexology, shiatsu massage, acupressure, meditation techniques as well as dance, Pilates, photography and web design.
After learning about the positive effects of Reflexology, I booked my first treatment. It left me feeling energized, grounded and relaxed at the same time. Pleasantly surprised by the results, I decided to become a Certified Reflexology Therapist. After practicing over 80 case studies, and treating many clients over the past six years, I’ve found that Reflexology offers a highly beneficial way to treat clients holistically.
Working as a Reflexologist in Calgary
I have provided mobile in-home reflexology services for over 6 years, both in Toronto and currently in Calgary. I also work as a Reflexologist twice a week at a Wellness clinic near the airport in Calgary. For the past 3 years, I volunteer for the Reflexology of Canada (RAC), Alberta Chapter Board, as the Treasurer and enjoy connecting and learning from fellow professionals in our industry.

Indian Head massage involves acupressure thumb, palm and massage treatment to the upper back, shoulders, arms, neck, head and face while the client is sitting in a chair. This alternative approach is helpful for those who cannot lie flat on a massage table, because of mobility concerns, or they need a massage in their office environment.
