I like to help people to solve their problems. My partner says I like to “fuss”.
I love it when I have helped someone to manage their health problems, stress, pain, insomnia or infertility:
When someone comes with a stiff neck, frozen shoulder or sore knee and then—after one massage and a few stretches—they achieve increased mobility
When someone experiencing menopausal symptoms has a full night’s sleep with no flushes—and feels calmer and less stressed
When a young woman who’s been struggling to conceive becomes pregnant after reflexology treatments.
Since 2001, I have volunteered with Girlguiding Edinburgh. I lead Rainbows and help as a Division administrator—so each week I am involved in crafts, fun trips or helping to recruit new volunteers.
I teach Callanetics and enjoy weekly Pilates and yoga classes. In the winter months, I love skiing holidays: you can’t beat getting fresh air while speeding down the slopes.
Health, nutrition and wellbeing is important to me, so I am currently trying to improve my cooking skills while preparing healthy meals from scratch. I also love going on long walks with my dog Coco.
As I work full time and have family it is not easy fitting in some ‘me time.’ Finding somewhere local for a massage on a Sunday afternoon was just perfect. The massage studio is a very soothing setting. I had a full body massage. The massage was firm without hurting and I felt so relaxed afterwards.
I have definitely noticed a difference since I started regular reflexology. I feel less stressed and more energised and it has worked wonders on reducing the dark circles under my eyes!
