From an early age, Daniela has been living holistically, however it would be during her later years when she acknowledged that spending time in Nature contributed to keeping her grounded. Some of her earliest memories include being by her grand-mother’s side, as her wee assistant, watching her cultivate plants. Thusly, gardening, would then become integral to Daniela’s own journey of self-healing from a variety of medical conditions that were affecting her health. Her desire to also help others get in tune with their bodies while overcoming barriers to maintaining optimum wellness inspired her to begin studying Reflexology in 2008.
Working with her hands in this capacity was a safe and natural fit for her since she loves its simplicity and non-intrusive method.
She says, “Reflexology was the only modality I have ever experienced that I fell asleep during the treatment”.
Aromatherapy will eventually complement her professional procedures with studies currently underway. In addition, the restorative properties of herbal medicine strongly interests her, and Daniela will most likely be introducing healing fragrances into her practice in the near future.
Although Reflexology Practitioners cannot treat any specific illness or disease, Daniela recommends Reflexology for helping with stress management, deep relaxation, better sleep, and self-care due to its immediate benefits.
Daniela is a Registered Canadian Reflexology Therapist, and a Professional Member in good standing with The Reflexology Association of Canada (R.A.C.).
