Welcome to Solely You Reflexology! My name is Helen, and here’s a little information about me:
I first discovered Reflexology whilst on a Buddhist retreat, where an International Institute of Reflexology (IIR) trained Reflexologist offered to give me a free taster treatment. Having never met her before, I was amazed at how much of my health problems she was able to pick up just from working my feet, and even more amazed the next day at the impact her treatment had! I felt more relaxed, grounded, and more connected emotionally and mentally; the digestive problems I’d had for days cleared up completely. Needless to say, I asked her where she had trained as soon as I could!
On getting home, I immediately looked up the course and signed up. Now qualified, I share my skills alongside my employment in the NHS, in which I have worked since 2014.
So why me?
I was fortunate to learn the Original Ingham method through the International Institute of Reflexology. This is the only school licensed in the UK to teach this method. It is also internationally recognised.
Most people refer to Eunice Ingham as the Mother of Reflexology, and the International Institute of Reflexology is run by her nephew, Dwight Byers. Dwight learned directly from his aunt, and has spent most of his life enhancing and sharing these skills to the wider world. I feel very privileged to have learned her techniques.
The 1 year course was very intense. To pass, I had to complete over 100 treatments, 3 written exams (including anatomy and physiology) and a practical exam with a qualified Reflexologist in the chair. I was absolutely delighted (and relieved!) to qualify first time!
Passionate to learn more and further enhance my skills, I have chosen to become a member of the Association of Reflexologists, a voluntary membership organisation. As such, I follow their ethical practices and commit to demonstrating my continued learning to the benefit of myself and my clients.
