A few years ago my mother died of cancer. I would like to dedicate my first ever blog to her as she was such an important and special part of my life. Her final weeks were spent in a hospice. It was one of the most difficult times of my life on the one hand, to watch someone you love so much die slowly before you, but on the other hand it was a very special time. We had no more to say in these final weeks apart from telling each other how much we loved each other. I had never felt so helpless as when I was with her in the hospice, but I found myself gently taking her hands then her feet and gently massaging them. It felt like the most natural thing to do and it gave her great comfort, in the most extraordinary circumstances. This proved to me that the power of the human touch is amazing.

After her death, I had a reflexology treatment with a new therapist as my usual therapist was unavailable. I was very disappointed with the treatment and I came out feeling I could do so much better. This was a bit of a lightbulb moment for me and I began thinking. Having experienced the loss of my mother and the impact touch had on her end of life, I felt that maybe I had something to offer and could really help others.

I made some enquiries about training as a Reflexologist and the rest is history. It just feels so right and the right thing for me to be doing. If I can help and support people through their life journey……how amazing is that!

Finding the right therapy and therapist that suits and meets your needs is paramount to the success of the treatment.
