Case studies needed

My name is Mari and I am currently working as a Nutritional Therapist. Through my work, I am seeing a growing need for a greater focus on the mind-body connection and emotional health. I am therefore studying Body Talk, a modality I hope to combine with my Nutritional Therapy to bring a well-rounded comprehensive approach to health. 

As part of my training, I am doing a number of case studies – I am therefore looking for willing bodies! It is a very gentle therapy using muscle testing and gentle tapping techniques. All that is required of the client is to lie down relax. I am based in Kilmeedy – if you are interested, please give me a call or text on 087 3664475. Thanks, Mari
