Amy Jefferson was sick. Bedridden for days at a time, she found that medicine helped relieve her symptoms but never truly eliminated their cause. Finally, she returned to the natural and holistic healing methods that she had become familiar with while growing up in New Mexico and met an herbologist-reflexologist who would help her to fully recover. Healthy and inspired, Jefferson then trained at the International Reflexology Institute. There, she harvested the knowledge and skills to promote healing through natural methods, instead of hiring doctors made out of artificial preservatives. Jefferson also holds Advanced Level certification from the International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy, a treatment she offers along with reflexology, electro-acupuncture, and ionic footbaths to provide the same holistic healing that changed her own life years ago.
