MAR, IIR, ART(Regd),TATh, MET, Reiki Practitioner

I trained in the Original Ingham Method of Reflexology and qualified with the International Institute of Reflexology [IIR]. Reflexology is a science that deals with the principle that there are reflex areas on the hands and feet that correspond to all the organs, glands and parts of the body. Reflexology is a unique method of using the thumb and fingers to work these areas. I practise hand and foot reflexology. I have also received authorised Vertical Reflex Therapy [VRT] tuition and I am an affiliate member of VRT. This is where the client is weight bearing and the top of the feet or hands are worked. I completed post graduate training in Advanced Reflexology Techniques [ART] and I am a member of ART. This is where firm pressure is applied by using knuckles. I have received authorised Neuroflexology tuition and I am a member of the International Neuroflexology Guild. Neuroflexology is a natural complementary therapy designed to switch on the body's own 'healing' system to repair the body. It is practiced on the feet. The method involves pressure from fingers and thumbs on specific areas of the feet and lower leg. The treatment takes around 10 - 15 minutes and is then followed by a rest period that allows the body to respond. I completed the professional training in Thermo Auricular Therapy [TATh], which is the therapeutic use of Hopi Ear Candles. For this the Hopi Candle [a cylindrical, hollow tube with no wick] is lit and inserted in the ear, creating moderate suction action which lightly manipulates the tympanic membrane. It stimulates ear, nose, throat and all sinuses. I continued and completed the Advanced Thermo Auricular Therapy training which includes the use of an otoscope and I am registered with the TATh. I am a practitioner of Meridian Energy Therapies [MET] and a member of the Association for Meridian Energy Therapies [AMT]. I practise EFT [Emotional Freedom Technique] which is a Meridian Energy Therapy. EFT is a simple and brilliant technique that helps to free you from the effects of emotional problems. I am a Reiki Master and Teacher. Reiki is a system of soothing hands on healing. Hands are placed gently and non intrusively in a sequence of positions which cover the whole body. You do not need to remove clothing as Reiki will pass through anything.The body will draw as much as it needs.
