A little about me ...
My name is Jean Watson, originally from South Manchester, I moved up to beautiful Northumberland back in 2006 and both love the place and the people.
I was introduced to Reflexology back in the late 1990's whilst going through a difficult period in my own life and it helped me so much that 5 years later I started training as a Reflexologist. I then did an Advanced Reflexology course followed by Swedish Body Massage, No Hands Massage and then on to become a KORE Therapy Consultant and Clinical Acupuncturist. It has been quite a journey and it has been fascinating learning about Traditional East Asian medicine and the meridians and the learning continues.
I am passionate about helping people and love seeing the difference in a client from meeting them the first time, many having struggled with symptoms and pain for such a long time that they have almost given up, to having a treatment and starting feel better about themselves and their body and having hope, being on the road to recovery. I love learning about the amazing human body and how incredible it is and adapts to survive, the mind-body connection and about Traditional East Asian medicine. I love learning and growing as a person, being out in nature and going for walks on the beach and enjoying the beauty of where I live.
Although I qualified in Reflexology back in 2004 and massage the following year and after moving to Wooler in 2006, initially worked with other Complementary Therapists above The Good Life Shop, I started 'Equilibrium' in 2012. It moved from the High Street to my home, to one of the lovely Pod's at the back of The Cheviot Centre in 2016. A 'safe', natural and healing place, where you can relax, renew and restore your body and return to natural balance and health.
I provided treatments for several years for both Carers Northumberland and also the Multiple Sclerosis Research and Relief Group, working from Berwick Hospital and found this work very gratifying, rewarding and humbling and have met some lovely people.
