So where do we Begin 🙂
Since leaving school, I have been fortunate enough that my career is in the health and fitness industry and it spans for 31 years. Initially I studied fitness and nutrition and delivered fitness classes and personal training. Excitingly it progressed to teaching at large scale fitness events which attracted thousands of people. This led to being offered a role as a gym manager in at the time, the largest health club in the UK. My role included training the fitness staff and members. Our members included gold medal winning athletes and celebrities. It was a chance encounter with a reflexologist that changed my trajectory and ultimately led to The Complementary Therapy School being born. At a break time, I was chatting to a reflexologist who provided treatments in the health club. I mentioned I had Raynaud’s and she offered me reflexology treatments. I was completely hooked and found the treatments amazing! I went to my GP and told him my circulation had dramatically improved and my painful hands were gone. He advised me to try stop taking the medication. This was back in 1995 and I have not taken medication for Raynaud’s again! I qualified in reflexology and massage and as they say, the rest is history! Initially as a complementary therapist, I set up therapy clinics within large companies in London and provided treatments as a wellbeing package for their staff. The response was so positive, within a short space of time, I recruited other complementary therapists and we were delivering our treatments within many companies. I always have a thirst for knowledge and believe that we never stop learning.
