I am utterly passionate about reflexology and other holistic therapies – anything that can make someone feel fantastic after a treatment. I was drawn towards holistic therapies and started my training at the Cotswold Academy. In 2014, I gained my ITEC Level Three in reflexology and then went on to qualify in Swedish massage, Indian head massage, and Hopi ear candling. Following my training, I continued to build up experience working in a spa and various salons, before deciding to start my own business. I love learning and developing my skills and regularly attend training courses to keep up with new treatments and products.
