Laura Lee Ross
Laure Lee grew up in Florida barefoot and on the beach. As a young woman in New York City of course I wore the heels and did the dance and realized that I was nervous and wired beyond belief. Because I've always been open to alternative and complementary forms of healing I begin to look into modalities that not only could help me calm down but that I could share with others. She learned the healing practice of reflexology over 25 years ago studying with Lora Norman who studied directly with the nephew of
Eunice Ingram. Eunice Ingram is the mother source of nearly all the reflexology practiced today.
The training was intensive. She attended classes for over a year, was tested extensively and then interned for about a half a year. She began working at Angel Feet, one of the few salons in NYC York City to specialize in reflexology, there she worked for over two years dealing with a variety of conditions and helping people in the stressful world of Manhattan to take an hour or two out to realign and relax. She was featured in articles for self magazine in the late 90s which brought her career to a new level and she began working with people all over the world.
Reflexology has been practiced throughout the ages. There's evidence in the hieroglyphics on the tombs in Egypt. There are references in the Bible to the washing of the feet. It is a sacred practice.

I want to help people reconnect, embody, and live more authentic lives.”
