Self Care in the New Year
Take time for yourself and care for your body, mind and soul in this mini retreat. Meditation, Yoga Flow, Reflexology Workshop & Sauna Time.
Jackie Jonkheid will be joining us to lead self-care reflexology workshop that will focus on the Endocrine System and Digestion.
Your Hormones determine your personality and how you interact with people around you. Our endocrine system is constantly exposed to hormone disruptors in modern society.
This workshop will focus on how to help your endocrine and digestive system get back into balance and get strong enough to withstand influences from the outer environment. Nutritional tips to take home for better hormone function.
Health, nature and natural resources have held her interest since Jackie was a child. When she lived in the Dutch Caribbean in the 1980’s, she came into touch with reflexology for the first time. Close friends wanted to have a child, and for eight years relied on mainstream medicine, with no result. Their friend suggested the couple try reflexology. After a series of reflexology treatments each, the couple conceived. That impressed Jackie so much, that she wanted to get to know more about this natural healing method. She began researching reflexology and using the acquired knowledge by applying the therapy on herself.
Initially Jackie worked in the environmental sector for several years. When her employer restructured the organization, she took the opportunity to develop her interest in reflexology. Two years after enrolling in the International Study of Naturopathic Reflexology at De Wouden Study Programme, she received her diploma, followed by a study of Mainstream Basic Medical Knowledge at the Arnhem University of Applied Sciences for Naturopathy in the Netherlands. As a practicing reflexologist member of the Reflexology Association of British Columbia, Jackie has an ongoing access to new insights and developments in this natural healing method.
Jackie has practiced reflexology at home and in public practices in the Netherlands and the Kootenays since 2002. It is her passion to help people feel good and create a feeling of blissful relaxation for people of all ages, even babies!
