I’ve been interested in natural medicine for many years. I have done courses in reiki, therapeutic touch, energy medicine, and more recently Reflexology. I feel that body Reflexology is where I’m heading. I’ve taken my first foot reflexology course from Wild Rose College while visiting one of my sons in Calgary. I was intrigued. Pressing on reflex points in my feet can make me healthier. A few years later while still working full time as a teacher, I did a hand Reflexology course with Footsteps. I fluked into the course by googling courses in St. John’s. I didn’t do a practicum in this course as I was too busy. I did practice on myself. My interest waned for a few years. Then after 6 years of retirement I decided to focus more on what I like and what gets me excited. I signed up for a 35 hour course with ASR in Atlantic Canada. This course was informative and hands-on. It also includes a 65 session practicum(165 Hours), and tests. So you could say I’m still travelling. I did the course in Dartmouth. Soon I’ll sign up for ear and face reflexology(2separate courses). And then lymph drainage and Indian Head Massage.
So more travel to Halifax, Moncton and St. John.
Ive made some new friends during my practicum. I’ve also advertised as a student Reflexologist. And this is at a reduced rate. The students in my courses are very interesting and the clients are wonderful individuals.
Recently I’ve decided to register as a Naturotherapist. Clients can bill their insurance for these sessions, if their insurance recognizes naturotherapists as health providers for stress, relaxation, circulation etc. So you can tell I’ve been busy, gathering up all my certificates, university transcripts, letters and forms. I’m also doing three courses from the Canadian School of Naturotherapies and Spiritual Development, which adds 120 hours to my total hours of study. 400 hours are needed to register as a Naturotherapist
Sorry if I’ve bored you to death! If you like reiki and/or Reflexology, you probably know where I’m going with all of this.
There is one thing you can help me with, if you like to contribute to other’s success/progress. I’m trying to come up with a name for my business. I plan on travelling to other communities in good weather months to do Reflexology. Also, I will go to people’s homes, if requested by females/seniors. Here are some of the names Ive considered: Island Reflexology, Newfoundland Reflexology Plus, Body Holistics, Reflex Energetics and Healing Energetics. I’d like your input. Feel free to comment on anything I’ve written
Still travelling but for different reasons!
