Wow what an amazing week!!

I was invited with other therapists to visit Broadland Housing Group in Norwich and Dereham to carry out taster reflexology sessions on their staff as part of a Wellness Week ‘Challenge to Change’.

What a wonderful bunch of people, some had tried reflexology before and some had not. A fantastic opportunity for all and very well received…….26 pairs of feet and 2 pairs of hands!!

It was a marvellous experience, and one I hope to repeat again next year.
