Topic: Foot Reading with Karen

I worked in administration, within Goverment funded training schemes, for over 20 years. Then due to being made redundant, for the second time in two years wasn't sure which area to go into. I had always been interested in Reflexology and Aromatherapy and had brought a few books but nothing extensive. In 2011, I went back to college to study the Diploma in Complementary Therapies Level 3 and set up Feel Good Therapies in 2012 and have not looked back. Have completed various CPD courses over the years and I am a Reiki Master. I also work as a masseuse in an Osteopathy Clinic. Hobbies are making jewellery, knitting and reading text books.
