Katy Walters ITEC, CThA, MAR
Life can be tough. We are constantly being faced with time pressures and unnecessary stress, whether it be from work or home. This stress often manifests itself as a "dis"-ease in the body - headaches, aching muscles or joints, high levels of emotion, palpitations, IBS and so much more.
During a difficult time in my life, I decided enough was enough. I took a step back and began to re-evaluate what I was doing. The amount of stress I was putting myself under was unbelievable and it was significantly affecting my health, career and home life. Something needed to change. I left my job in sales and retrained as a Reflexologist. This was life changing - not only was I finding time for me again, but this therapy was making such a difference to the people I was treating. It was as if they were allowing themselves permission to relax and just "be", without feeling guilty.
I trained with Philippa James at the Yorkshire School of Complementary Therapies achieving an ITEC Diploma in Reflexology and am a member of the Complementary Therapists Association (CThA). I have also undertaken courses for Access Bars and Advanced Reflexology. I intend to continue broadening the portfolio of therapies provided, to include Hopi Ear Candling and Indian Head Massage.
For the first time in a long while, I can say that I honestly and truly love my work and am passionate about providing a bespoke, quality service for my clients.
My aim is to give people back this precious "me" time that we so often neglect. Invest time in yourself and your body will look after you.
As the only male participant in this review chain, I feel i need to let the world know that Katy does in fact rule. As a man, I have no emotions, and therefore I cannot comment on how the deep relaxation i've experienced through the mystery of reflexology has enriched my life force chakra zen thingy or whatever. However, I've been twice and I'm going again, so there you go. ”
