About Kite Spirit
I am a fully qualified, experienced and fully insured Reflexologist and a member of the Association of Reflexologists (AoR), the premier Reflexology organisation in the UK. In 2003, I trained with the Philip Salmon Reflexology Course, a fully accredited course approved by the AoR. After the birth of my first child in 2010, I specialised in Baby & Toddler Reflexology, with baby reflex™. To complement this, I completed a course in Maternity Reflexology in 2014. The course was run by Sally Earlam which has AoR CPD approval. I can now give support to families on a whole range of levels, from couples wanting to conceive, support in pregnancy, preparing for labour and care for their children.
A nursing background has given me valuable experience into the western side of medicine and has further expanded my knowledge of anatomy, physiology and medical diseases.In 2008 I moved to China for 18 months, working as a Reflexologist. I studied Tui Na Chinese Massage at Dr Li's Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Clinic in Shanghai; in association with Double Dragon Alliance Taijiquan, education and cultural center. Along side my treatments I use flower essences and reiki, which supports and strengthens the quality of my work.
I discovered Dru Yoga in 2004, after trying out a few different styles on my travels. I absolutley fell in love with Dru Yoga and as a result decided to train as a Dru Yoga Teacher in 2013. This has enabled me to grow with my own self-development as a Yogi, as well as giving me new opportunities to help and teach others. I completed my two year, 200 hours Dru Yoga Teacher Training course in November 2015. In 2016 I completed a Healthy Back post graduate course and I attend regular CPD training days.
In September 2018, I started support teaching on the teacher training course and therefore continue to have regular contact with my senior masters.
In May 2017 I started an Ayurvedic Massage course. This is taught by my amazing Dru yoga teacher, Shona Sutherland and her team. She is a senior Dru Yoga teacher trainer, an Ayurvedic Practitioner and teaches the massage and other Ayurvedic courses. I have completed the full body, head & face and Marma back massage.
