I was introduced to homeopathy and Reiki as a patient in 2000 during a time of trauma and emotional stress. I was amazed at the subtle effect of the therapies – although my external circumstances hadn’t changed I was much better able to cope with them and I felt much much better in myself. In fact it opened up a whole new way of seeing things for me. Since then my whole family has used homeopathy – even my father who is a retired engineer and thought it all very suspicious. The scientist in him is honest enough to observe that hey – this works!
I love the way that complementary therapies can be used alongside conventional medicine. A few years ago, my husband broke his elbow badly and was told that he would never be able to straighten his arm again. After his operation he took homeopathic remedies to help the bone heal and to sort out the accompanying bruising, sprains and shock and had regular Reiki treatments. His arm was back to normal in record time and his consultant was extremely surprised!
I have since come to Reflexology and find its immediacy and ability to relax and comfort whilst helping with various physical complaints really inspiring. I am lucky to have been able to help people with issues ranging from stubborn constipation to deep grief.
As for myself, complementary therapies recently allowed me to avoid a trip to the hospital for a nasty procedure for which I am extremely grateful!
As I hope you can see, I love these therapies and I want as many people to know about them as possible, because they are simple, powerful and gentle. I am also particularly interested in using the newer homeopathic remedies to support personal development.
I have a background in technical writing and worked for many years as a technical author in a software company in Germany. Before that I taught English as a foreign language. I speak German fluently and do occasional translation work.
