Reflexology is a natural healing art which works on all levels-
physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
It works on the principle that there are points on the face, ears, hands and feet that are linked to all the organs and parts of the human body.
By working these points (reflex zones) in a specific way it is possible to directly affect the organ or part of the person to bring balance and healing to the individual and to activate the bodyâ€™s own self healing processes.
My name is Helen. I moved to Cornwall over 30 years ago and have been known to Haye Mill for over 20 years in various capacities and am pleased to be a Trustee of the Centre for the past three years.
I have been interested in complementary therapies for many years and am qualified in Reiki to level two. I have a certificate in Spiritual/Natural Healing and am studying for a Diploma in Reflexology.
I work as a housing officer for a Company that provides supported housing for people with severe learning disabilities or enduring mental health problems. I have worked in this field for 15 years and before that I was a teacher/ trainer for special needs groups in drama and movement therapy. I also taught many adult education classes in Assertiveness, Confidence Building, Stress Management and Relaxation Techniques.
I also hold a certificate in Counselling Skills and Studies but donâ€™t practice at this time though I did hold the position of Chairperson for the Westcountry Association of Counselling (WAC) for four years.
Before that I worked in amateur dramatics and had my own company to work with young children and special needs groups.
