Alice qualified as a Reflexologist in London with the International Institute of Reflexology in 1998 and went on to complete a number of courses with Tony Porter’s Advanced Reflexology Training (ART).
Alice qualified as a Craniosacral Therapist with The Craniosacral Education Trust in London in 2005. Since arriving in NZ in 2008, Alice has been registered with the Pacific Association of Craniosacral Therapists (PACT) and has continued her professional development with Body Intelligence Biodynamic Craniosacral trainings.
Alice has a background in psychology and social work, (children, families and mental health) but moved into body work with the realisation that emotional and physical health are deeply interconnected. Having worked in the field of mental health Alice is passionate about encouraging people to become more embodied as a root to health and well being.
Alice is excited and inspired by the potential for self repair and renewal that lies within the body. Both reflexology and craniosacral therapy encourage the body’s capacity to heal itself.
Reflexology involves applying pressure to reflex points on the feet which specifically relate the different organs of the body. In essence there is a map of the body in the feet and by stimulating the area in the foot relating to particular areas in the body, reflexology opens up nerve pathways, encourages blood flow and promotes balance and release.
Craniosacral Therapy uses a very light touch to listen to the patterns of experience held within the tissues and fluids of the body. As a therapy it is particularly effective in the treatment of physical and emotional trauma in that it provides a gentle safe environment for shock and trauma to resolve.
Both reflexology and craniosacral therapy are safe and effective treatments for all age groups and both encourage a deeper relationship with the body’s capacity to heal itself.
Alice also teaches Chi Kung, (Qi Qong) a gentle form of exercise which has its roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine and dance.
