Newsletter Summer 2016

Wow, while writing this I am looking out at the golden full moon in PEI, the first to coincide with the summer solstice for more than 50 years, how lucky am I?

Welcome to summer to you all and I hope this letter finds you well and thriving.

I have had a busy spring since the last newsletter and looking forward to a busy summer.
The Reflexology Lymph Drainage course held in Toronto by Sally Kay from the UK was a great success and I was very happy to learn with Kit, Nicole, Sandi, Catherine, Brenda and Judith.  Sally has achieved a huge amount in terms of recognition from the national health service in the UK and many successful case studies to share.  We are working together in Toronto to offer this treatment to patients in the lymphodema clinics.  I am also working on getting Sally back to Toronto to teach the course again and will keep you posted.  Any of you interested in taking the course, please let me know.

Please check out below the item on 'Find a therapist'.  I am keen to get this off the ground as soon as possible so please respond with information asap.

We are taking registrations now for the Acupressure course happening at the end of October in Toronto, this will be an amazing learning experience and limited spaces.

After the week in PEI, I am looking forward to teaching in July in St Johns and August in Halifax which will take care of the summer.

I hope the summer is good to you all and take this opportunity to get out there and enjoy the lovely weather, farmers markets, outdoor events - lots of opportunities to promote your business.

Hope to see you all soon.

With best wishes, Janet

This was the idea of Kit Watkins and I think it will be very helpful to all you who are practising Reflexology and a way for prospective students and prospective clients to connect with you.
As soon as we have a list compiled we will be putting a separate page on the website so it is available for visitors to the site.

All I am asking is that you email us with your name, business name, contact phone number, email address, website, location where you practice, either city or neighbourhood in a city or both, the modalities you offer; foot, hand reflexology, Indian Head Massage, RLD, any other therapies, hours/days that you work, whether you are mobile etc etc.
