About me
Liz has naturally blended her love of the outdoors with her curiosity of physiology and anatomy. She spent 20 years in the adventure guiding and conservation industries; tramping, rafting, caving and climbing her way around the globe. How the body reacts to various environments (mental & physical) spiked her interest early on; she knows first-hand how important it is for these two qualities to be in unison.

Consciously taking a step out of guiding she retrained in holistic health majoring in Reflexology and Acupressure, with the base of massage and its various forms (CAMTC qualified). Liz ran her holistic health business in California, USA where she lived for 5 years and during this time she sat on the Board of Directors for the Reflexology Association of California, ran workshops and volunteered her skills at various cancer support centres. Another highlight, although daunting, was presenting Reflexology seminars to doctors' groups in San Francisco Bay Area hospitals, somewhat more intimidating than her village audiences in Nepal when sharing her love of reflexology through The Mountain Fund medical trek.

Liz taught at McKinnon Body Therapy Centre in California and underwent training with The World Reflexology Foundation under the guidance of Bill Flocco; she now runs free workshops on their behalf.
