      Although I became a certified Reflexologist in 2004, it wasn't until the summer of 2006 that I officially opened the clinic in our Dollard Des Ormeaux home. I had been working but hadn't yet focused on building the business until all the conditions were right. By the end of May 2006 major renovations to our house was for the most part  complete and our daughter was going to summer camp 5 mornings a week. I turned my attentions to the clinic. I placed an ad in a local magazine that also allowed me to write an editorial. I began to build a wonderful client base, and in September I again advertised with the same magazine. Here are the two editorials;

What is Reflexology?  by Joyce Shanks

A Vacation as Close As The Tip of Your Toes by Joyce Shanks

Articles were published in West Island Living in June 2006 and October 2006 respectfully

What is not included in either of these articles is the reason for me studying this modality. At a later date I will go into detail about my history and training with reflexology, but the bottom line is that it changed my health and my life for the better, and I wholeheartedly believe that there are others that can benefit from this incredible wholistic therapy.

     Reflexology was introduced to me three times and in three ways before I realised that I had to study it and share the gift of it. My Reflexologist in Copenhagen Denmark is an amazing woman, and after I became a Reflexologist myself she told be that I had to be a pioneer in Reflexology in Canada, as she had been in Denmark. I am honoured and humbled to have such a  big responsibility but I am passionate and convicted to it.  Everyday and in every treatment that I give to my clients I continue to be amazed by its power.  If you have not yet tried having reflexology I recommend strongly that you experience it for yourself.
