‘To love what you do and feel that it matters – how could anything be more fun.’ Katherine Graham
I absolutely love receiving reflexology – and that’s how it all began.
‘There is always something we can do to help” Peter MacKereth
This quote comes from fabulous tutor and reflexologist extraordinaire Dr Peter MacKereth (he has a PhD in reflexology, how wonderful is that!) and it’s basically my mantra. Peter was referring to patients going through cancer tests and treatments and how to think on our feet and get creative to help someone feeling tense, anxious or in pain. This mantra has helped me adapt and be creative in how I work during this Covid-19 pandemic and is the reason I’m now giving guided treatments online so that we can use the magic of our own hands to help ourselves.
Balancing work and life
Because I love my work, it can be very easy to get caught in the flow of treatments and courses and research. As well as conventional things to counterbalance this (gardening, walks in nature, spending time with my boys), I have a secret weapon – llamas! I don’t know what it is about these beautiful creatures, but seeing one always makes me smile and has done from a very young age – and maybe one day I’ll have one (or 2 or 12!!) of my own. For now you will see a little nod to them in my treatment room – if you look hard enough (don’t worry, you’re not going to be confronted with 100s of llamas looking at you whilst having a treatment!)
