During the completion of my Reflexology course with By The Moon, I definitely struggled with some obstacles. While working two jobs, getting my son to and from hockey and making sure I made some time for my family it got pretty stressful and easy to think of giving up.  During the week of hands on training in Belleville I was surrounded by the most amazing group of women. It was really encouraging to be around such strong, like minded group. I think it pushed me to keep going. 

Often I had all of my books and laptop spread across the stands during hockey practice and I always used the time between clients at work to get some studying in and go over my techniques. I also made over 190 cue cards, that stayed in my bag or purse at all times. I posted on social media anytime I had an opening to fill my spots for practice sessions and that really helped me memorize the sequence faster and get to my 70 practice session requirement. I set goals of what I wanted to accomplish each week but didn't get down when one couldn't be reached. 

I offer many services that pair so well with Reflexology including Indian head massage, facials, manicures, pedicures (Reflexology mani and pedis), Hot stone massage, Swedish massage , Thai hand and foot massage, Access Energy, waxing, lash lifts and tints, brow lamination and more! 

It has been an amazing journey learning with By The Moon and I can't wait to further my education more with them!
