About Me

Who am I and what path led me to reflexology?

I’m   Wendy   Dalzell;   a   wife,   a   mother,   a   daughter,   a   sister,   a   friend.      I   was   a self-employed     transcriptionist     before     becoming     a     diploma     qualified reflexologist   and   remedial   massage   therapist   who   is   passionate   about   the benefits that can be gained through regular reflexology and massage. You     would     think     after     50     years     of     living     and     shouldering     all     the responsibilities   that   come   with   being   a   wife-mother-daughter-sister-friend with   a   successful   home   business,   my   path   in   life   would   be   pretty   much   laid down   solid   and   all   I’d   have   to   do   is   put   one   foot   in   front   of   the   other   and follow   it.      Well   I   don’t   know   why,   perhaps   it’s   a   rebellious   streak,   call   me   a later   maturer,   whatever   you   like,   but   I’ve   always   been   one   to   seek   out   the curvy   path   where   you   can’t   see   what’s   coming   around   the   next   bend   when, for others, the straight path would do just fine. But   for   me,   life   is   about   always   growing,   always   seeking   new   challenges. For   several   years   I   have   practiced   Tai   Chi,   as   well   as   taking   up   karate training   at   43   (remember,   late   maturer).   Martial   arts   training   is   holistic,   with foundations   in   Chinese   philosophy   teaching   the   principle   of   respect   and discipline of mind, body and spirit. I   have   long   held   an   interest   in   natural   complementary   therapies   and   their benefits   in   combination   with   Western   medicine.      I   passionately   believe   that a   synergistic   blend   of   stress-reduction,   exercise,   good   food   and   clean   water, fresh   air,   sunshine,   natural   therapies,   and   bodywork   is   the   best   way   to prevent   illness.      I   also   believe   that   Western   medicine   has   a   place   in   helping us overcome serious diseases. So   how   did   reflexology   appear   around   the   bend   in   my   personal   path? Thank you for asking. I   had   been   thinking   about   a   change   in   career   for   a   while;   something   that would   allow   me   to   interact   with   people   but   also   where   I   could   help   ease their   stresses.   I   also   wanted   this   something   to   be   along   the   lines   of   a   natural therapy.    With    these    thoughts    always    vaguely    in    the    back    of    my    mind, several   years   ago   I   was   taking   a   weekend   break,   wandering   through   the markets    in    beautiful    Bangalow,    NSW,    when    I    came    upon    a    stallholder offering    20-minute    foot    reflexology    sessions.    Now    I    don’t    know    about anybody   else,   but   I   just   adore   having   my   feet   rubbed.   So   naturally,   I   took the opportunity to have what I thought was a simple foot massage. How naïve was I! That   20-minute   ‘foot   rub’   changed   my   life.   The   energy   I   felt   travel   through me   from   that   reflexology   therapist’s   hands   left   me   thinking   Wow,   this   is   what I’ve   been   looking   for.     This   chance   encounter   crystalized   my   vague   thoughts and   gave   me   the   goal   to   aim   for   that   I   knew   would   fulfil   my   desire   to   help others through natural therapy. The   Bangalow   Epiphany,   as   I   have   come   to   think   of   it,   was   one   of   those   ‘in the   right   place   at   the   right   time’   moments.   As   soon   as   I   returned   home   to Brisbane   I   started   researching   reflexology   and   the   more   I   read   about   it,   the more   fascinated   I   became.   I   made   the   decision   to   study   for   a   Diploma   of Reflexology   and   the   rest,   as   they   say   in   the   classics,   is   history.      The   more   I practise   my   craft   the   more   I   learn,   and   seeing   the   positive   effects   my   clients enjoy    reinforces    my    conviction    that    everyone    should    include    regular reflexology and massage sessions as a part of maintaining their health.
