About 15 years ago, I was working in a fast paced corporate environment in Central London. I was suffering from stress, working long hours, smoking and not taking care of myself. Reflexology saved me! That is when I decided to change direction, to follow a caring and nurturing path in life.
After training as a reflexologist in London at The Central London School of Reflexology, I had further training with Susanne Enzer in maternity reflexology. I practiced reflexology in Central and West London, working with clients who wanted to improve their health and wellbeing. Also with clients who wanted to start a family.
I went on to expand my horizons; took a year out to travel throughout Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia, Fiji, The Cook Islands, Australasia and the U.S.A. Adding to my knowledge and skills as a therapist along the way, by learning different techniques from local therapists and teachers. I returned to London, where I combined experiences gained during my travels with my reflexology practice. It was at this time that I became interested in Facial Reflexology.
In 2009, I trained in Facial Reflexology Sorensensistem, the Lone Sorensen method of Facial Reflexology. Lone is a Danish Reflexologist, although Danish her reach is International, she was one of the first people to bring Facial Reflexology to the West. I have also trained with Dr France Muller, a French doctor, who was also a pioneer in the field of Facial Reflexology. She still uses it today in her medical practice. Both Dr France Muller and Lone Sorensen have worked very closely with Professor Bùi Quôc Châu the originator of Vietnamese Facial Reflexology.
At this time, I was living in Italy, near Lake Bracciano, Lazio. Although, I did enjoy my trips to London to train in the Sorensensistem method of Facial Reflexology. In Italy, I worked with Italian, American, Irish and British women interested in their health and wellbeing but also concerned about how past illness or a stressful life was affecting how they looked too.
So, in 2011, I decided to add to my skills, by training in Lone’s Japanese Cosmo Lifting, a natural face lifting technique. I moved to Rome, where I worked with international clients in the UN.
In 2015, I returned to the family bosom of West Cork. Joining the team at The Natural Clinic, 23 Sullivan’s Quay, Cork and securing The Gate Lodge, Liss Ard Estate, Skibbereen, West Cork.
Always fascinated by Facial Reflexology, it was at this time I heard about Ziggie Bergman. I decided to have more trips to London to train in the Bergman Method with Ziggie. I have trained in Facial Reflexology, Advanced Facial Massage and ZoneFaceLIft with Ziggie.
I have brought my skills and experience to Cork, combining the best of all my training over the last eight years, adding my experience of a lifetime! I am thrilled to be able to offer these to the women of Cork City and West Cork.
Occasional ‘pop up’ clinics in London, Rome and Connecticut, U.S.A. give me the opportunity to catch up with friends and past clients. How lovely!
