Experience and credentials of your teacher /trainer

I received my RCRT credentials after completing my Foot Reflexology training from the homologated course offered by the Reflexology Association of Canada in March 2012 and have been practicing professionally since. I officially opened the micro-clinic Réflexe Santé specializing uniquely in reflexology therapy on June 14th 2012. I later completed my Hand Reflexology certification and graduated as a Licensed Reflexology Teacher in December of 2013.

Throughout my years of learning Reflexology, I was fortunate to be mentored by my dear friend Nelie, an extraordinarily caring human being and a 40 year veteran of reflexology and acupressure learned from therapist in her homeland of the Philippines.

My background in health studies go back to 1985 when I received a bachelors degree in Health Sciences and Nursing from the University of Ottawa, Ontario and later worked in the hospital sector as a registered nurse.

In between both my healthcare careers, I worked as a teacher in the private school sector which was an invaluable life experience serving me well today as a reflexology teacher. Today I continue to learn about advancements in natural health maintenance therapies and wholesome nutrition. My goal is to teach and mentor future certified reflexologist as well as increase awareness of the benefits from receiving reflex therapy by trained and certified reflexology specialist throughout Ottawa and beyond.
