- RAC certified foot reflexologist since 2000
- AFLCA certified group fitness instructor since 1996
- Reiki Level 1
- Red Seal German Pastry Chef
Originally from Germany I came to Canada as a Pastry Chef, always enjoying a good piece of pastries or self made truffles. What’s wrong with a bit of chocolate in our lives …..?
And I always had a deep seeded passion for alternative healing methods and exercise.
And so I followed my dreams and became a fitness instructor and a foot reflexologist, modalities that I have full confidence in.
Foot reflexology is a natural healing art. The placement of pressure on the nerve endings also known as reflexes promotes a blissful state of relaxation as well as simulates the body's own natural healing function. Foot reflexology helps relieve tension and improves circulation throughout the entire body. Reflexes correspond to every body organ, gland and body part
This is indeed a “royal” treatment for you, your body and your feet. Try it and you won’t be disappointed.
