Reflexology & Wellness by Annette
I received my training from the Sister Rosalind Gefre School of Massage in Fargo, ND and I continue to receive education through International Institute of Reflexology and other instructors.
The more I learn, the more I experience how it helps others, the deeper I fall in love with reflexology.
I have facilitated multiple professional relationships with practitioners who share the same natural path of therapy that I love!
I feel very blessed to be able to help others eliminate the stress in their lives, as well as promote healing in our bodies.
I am married to a wonderful man, and I'm the mother and step-mother of 2 children. I thank God that he has given me the passion, and has blessed me with the skills to positively impact people's lives and their health!
I homeschooled our son and I watch in antisipation as he is about to spread his wings!
Another tid-bit of information about my passion to help others. I LOVE helping everyone but I have a special place in my heart for Veterans. My Dad was drafted into the Vietnam War and died in May of 2014 from Agent Orange at the age of 66. Pretty darn sad price to pay. The last couple years of his life he suffered greatly from PTSD...something that most Veterans experience but learn to press down. Non-Veterans can experience this too. I have learned, through the years, so much about how reflexology helps those suffering from this dreaded path.
2016 was a wonderful year with many difficult trials faced. I traveled to Alaska, for my first time, to attend a 4-day reflexology conference. Learned so much more about studies done for reflexology and PTSD, cancer, structural reflexology, etc. I came back from that trip, on top of the world, to find the dreaded news of my husband having Stage 3 Colo-rectal cancer. I put to work what I learned in Alaska from the speaker from Australia on cancer. My husband endured 5-weeks of receiving radiation daily along with receiving chemotherapy 24 hours a day. Those five weeks went very fast, fortunately and he never experienced sickness. I applied reflexology every-other day, added essential oils daily. He is now undergoing a 6-month treatment of chemotherapy and has been experiencing some sickness. What I'm trying to say is, my passion for helping others has also come to include cancer sufferers and their caretakers. Caring takes a great deal of energy. Take care of yourself so you can help take care of others.
