My name is Marcia Edwards, I spent over 25 years as an IT professional before re-training as a complementary therapist. My main reason for re-training was because of my children especially my son who had a lot of health issues for the first 18 months of his life. After looking on the internet for something I could use with my children which did not involve any additional medication, I was drawn to Reflexology.
I qualified with a diploma in Reflexology from the International Institute of Reflexology in 2013.
In 2015 I became the first reflexologist in Scotland to qualify as a Functional Reflex Therapist and now run workshops for parent / carers of children with additional support needs teaching them a relaxation routine that they can use with their children.
In 2016 I qualified as a Limbic Reflex Therapist, a specialised form of Reflexology called Limbic Reflexology and from 2017, I have also worked as a Kinetic Chain Release Practitioner.
As well as working as a therapist, I also work for a women’s charity in Glasgow running their well-being programme.
My additional qualifications include a BSc (Hons) degree in Applied Statistics and I am currently studying part-time at Glasgow Caledonian University on the Masters of Research Programme. My main interest as a therapist is helping people with Fibromyalgia and my aim is to contribute to the amazing research being in done in the field of Reflexology.
