Graduate: Karen Ball
My primary business deals with advanced education for reflexologists and licensed massage therapists. The Academy is located in St. Augustine, Florida, where I live, teach and administrate my business. I also travel and teach in other locations in the United States, Canada and Costa Rica. Programs and dates are listed on my website.
I also formulate yummyFEET and yummyHANDS, a small line of organic essential oil products, for people who perform manual therapies of the feet and hands. The products are designed to address both internal imbalances and issues of the feet and hands. Please see the Products page on my website.
I was certified as a reflexology practitioner in 1983 and instructor in 1985 (both in Canada, my country of birth). After moving to the United States I became licensed in the state of Florida to practice massage therapy, at the same time that I continued to teach reflexology at all levels.
I ran a successful practice in both reflexology and massage from 1989 until 2008, when I decided to devote all of my professional time to advancing the education levels with the field of reflexology. Part of this move included getting trained in the use of essential oils. I wanted to develop a line of organic essential oils products that reflexologists could use to address common conditions that we deal with.
There's a lot more I could say about my many years within the healing professions, but I won't!! If you are interested in knowing more of what I am interested in and share with others, please check my website: www.academyofancientreflexology.com
