Registered Reflexologist, Reiki Master, Spa Therapist, Teacher and Primary Care Paramedic
An interesting "chain of events" has brought me here, to this point in my life. I feel like all of my past experiences and failures were all in preparation for this business....PetalRoot. After eleven years of incredibly satisfying work as a Paramedic I developed PTSD and I suddenly became unable to function and cope with everyday tasks. I would rarely leave my house and I would often spend hours hiding in my bed physically shaking. I suffered from insomnia, anxiety and crippling feelings of doom. It was during this time that I began to search for something.....anything to find some relief. I came across a lady who combined full body massage with energy work and after several treatments I could feel the gentle healing starting to take place. I was already a Reiki Master but after experiencing the power of both of these techniques combined I decided that this was the direction my life must go. I went to the Vancouver School Of Bodywork And Massage and took the Spa Therapy Course. There I was empowered to combine physical bodywork using several pressure point modalities such as Reflexology and Shiatsu with Reiki. Holistic health and wellness treats both the physical and energetic body. This is my passion!
