Dana also has a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration. She’s a native of St. Louis and lived in Indianapolis for many years prior moving to Charlotte with her husband and three daughters in 2004.
Dana’s journey to reflexology is a very personal one. She struggled with pain and chronic health issues for many years. Traditional western medicine only dealt with the symptoms while never addressing the root cause of illness. When her symptoms became unbearable, she turned to chiropractic where she discovered the world of holistic health. It was there she found relief from many of her issues through complementary and alternative medicine.
As Dana’s health and well-being improved, she experienced healing on many levels. The journey continued with an ever-increasing desire to learn as much as she could about the body, how it functions and how to support better health and wellness in a more natural, holistic way. That desire grew into a deeper longing to find fulfillment by helping others improve their health. Not long after that, she decided to pursue a career in holistic health through reflexology, and Sole Healing was born.
Dana loves learning and genuinely wants to help her clients find relief and experience wellness. She has a desire to educate others about the benefits of reflexology and how it can address their own unique health challenges. Her passion is to encourage and empower her clients to take control of their health and start on the path towards healing.
History of Reflexology
Reflexology comes from an ancient art of healing dating back to perhaps as early as 2700 B.C. in China. Around the world and throughout history, reflexology has been rediscovered as a health practice time and time again. While it may seem natural to rub a tired hand or stubbed toe, evidence points to reflexology work as a therapy utilized by ancient physicians.
Today’s reflexology came about as American physicians of the late 1800s were trying to explore how the nervous system worked by using the application of pressure and other techniques. Their results came to be viewed as reflexes, which lead to stimulating reflex areas on the hands and feet to impact specific parts of the body.
Pioneers in the self-help movement published, taught, and spoke extensively on reflexology and contributed to the awareness, growth and development of reflexology in the United States.
Reflexology is not intended to replace conventional medical care. Reflexology is a unique modality in the alternative health field which promotes better health and well being. Reflexologists do not diagnose, prescribe, treat nor cure any specific medical disorder.
