Profile and Credentials        

Susan Watson NBCR, AAED is a Board Certified Reflexologist, and a accredited educator through ACARET. Susan is the author of "Practical Reflexology", published by McGraw-Hill.

My interest in Reflexology began in the 1960's when my mother mentioned to her sister and brother-in-law, Dr. Elbert and Marjorie Hubbs, that I was having a bed-wetting problem at the age of 12. My uncle, who was a Doctor of Chiropractor and Reflexologist, and trained by Eunice Ingham, immediately began to manipulate pressure points on my feet. I remember it was painful in certain areas, and they would tell me, "That is your kidney area. We need to work out this pain to help your kidney".

I also felt a feeling of well-being come over me that I will never forget.

They taught me which area to press, and within a few short weeks the problem disappeared. I remembered the stories my uncle and aunt told me how they had helped many people with so many problems.

I had another aunt, Dorothy Gallaher who also inspired me. Aunt Dorothy was also a Reflexologist, trained by Eunice Ingham and Mildred Carter. She, too, had many stories to share about all the people she had helped to heal. From that time on, I wanted to be like them -- a Reflexologist. It is a wonderfully gratifying job, helping people feel better!
