Local reflexologist encourages healthy living in Airdrie
It starts as a prickly feeling. Then it becomes slightly tingly until it feels like someone is tickling your feet.
That’s when you notice that your toes are clenched, pressing firmly into the machine that is sending electrical pulses throughout your body from one foot, up your leg to the other foot.
“It reprograms your nerve system,” said Veronica Dewilde about the reflexology machine she uses in My Rejuvenation Centre, the natural health-care centre she started out of her Airdrie house at 726 Woodside Bay in 2009.
It’s part of her approach to promote healthy living in Airdrie that blends Chinese medicine with the use of western technology, combining the use of thermal energy, motion energy, electrical energy, infrared technology and nutrition.
“These are all the building stones of life,” she said.
“You want to keep everything in balance.”
Her choice to promote this lifestyle began after moving to Canada from Belgium in 1999 and noticing that she felt much worse than she did back home.
“I thought, ‘what did I do differently than in my home country?’” she said.
Dewilde said her lifestyle in Belgium included regular sauna sessions.
“It is a fact that infrared therapy detoxifies you,” said Dewilde.
In an attempt to cure her own ailments, including a low immune system and weight gain, she wanted to install a sauna in her own home and researched the process.
“I started seeing that it was so much more than relaxation,” said Dewilde.
“I found my mission in life, to teach (people) there’s another way to get healthy and stay healthy.”
Dewilde will be taking part in the Soqi Health Seminar on Oct. 13 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Best Western Regency Inn in Airdrie
She said Airdronians who want to promote overall good health should partake in the seminar.
Those interested in attending must register to book their spot by calling 403-980-7386 or by emailing Dewilde at firstname.lastname@example.org
