Hello, my name is Ros Walmsley. I was brought up in Edinburgh where my interest in complementary therapies began.
I was fortunate to have an enthusiastic biology teacher at school who encouraged my interest in natural sciences. Initially, I trained in Food and Nutrition and worked in and around Edinburgh giving cookery demonstrations and nutritional advice.
While my three children were small I stayed at home and supported my husband in his business. During this time I was able to read widely and found interesting ways of using my new found knowledge on the family - including the dog! Meal times were often spirited discussions about the health aspects of the menu.
My studies progressed and I qualified as a Nutritional Therapist in 1998. This enabled me to work with clients on a deeper level to understand how their diet and lifestyle might be affecting their health.
In 2000 I qualified in Iridology, the study of the iris of the eye, which gives insight into how inherited constitutions affect patterns of health.
I have always been aware of the healing and relaxing power of touch and I decided to add a physical therapy to my qualifications. I qualified in Reflexology in 2003. This presented an opportunity to pamper a client who wanted an occasional, relaxing treat, or to work more in-depth with someone requiring to address health issues over a longer period of time.
In 2004 we relocated to the Lake District where the focus of my work is now reflexology with nutritional advice.
I am a full member of the Association of Reflexologists, and am qualified and insured to practice.
Through on-going CPD, keeping up to date with current research and working with other therapists I aim to continually enhance my skills.
I have recently qualified in Reflexology for Pre-conception, Pregnancy & Post-natal Care.
In my free time, I enjoy gardening, bird-watching, hill-walking and playing chamber music.
Reflexology is a complementary therapy and no claims are made for diagnosis or cure.
It is not a substitute for medical treatment and advice.
