Marketing your business


 When I was in PEI last week, I reconnected with Lois Livingston who did the Diploma course with us three years ago.  She is very committed to alternative healthcare, despite having a full time job and she is building up her part time practice of Reflexology in Stratford, PEI.


She has recently embarked on a programme from the US learning to be a health coach to help her patients with their health goals in terms of diet, exercise and general lifestyle.


Check out her website above.  


RAC Conference 


The conference is definitely happening in November 2012 in Toronto and you can still register to attend.  Check out the speakers and interesting information -

Greetings to you all,


Well summer is here and has been for a few weeks here in Ontario, I hope you have all experienced some sunshine which always makes us feel good.


I have just returned from PEI after teaching for a week and then next week off to St Johns, Newfoundland to teach, so my summer is all mapped out. 


Check out the workshop below which takes place in October, I think will be very useful for all of us.


Also don't forget the RAC Conference in November, a must for everyone interested in furthering their Reflexology career.


Enjoy the summer, happy Canada Day to you all.


Best wishes, Janet

Being a caregiver or educator can be powerful and satisfying work.   Without a self-care practice you risk a unique occupational hazard - Compassion Fatigue - a deeply painful state of physical, emotional and spiritual exhaustion. Compassion Fatigue goes far beyond "burnout."


In this interactive 1 ½ day workshop, you will:

  • Learn the difference between burnout and compassion fatigue:
  • Recognize warning signs and symptoms
  • Learn simple, practical stress-reduction techniques
  • Participate in reflective exercises
  • Create a customized self-care strategy
  • Receive a 'hands on' body/energy work treatment
  • Participate in creative expressive clay work, walk a labyrinth
  • Enjoy lunch with time to relax and reflect


You deserve to live in healthy balance, with vitality and passion!
