Treesha's passion for reflexology is committed, captivating and alive. She loves offering sessions and carries a strong desire to educate people to what reflexology is. More importantly, she wants to broaden the general understanding as to how walking barefoot on the textures of the earth interrupts stress patterns within the body, allowing for a richer and more harmonious life path. She loves helping people feel better, feel grounded, feel lighter, feel emotionally clearer, and feel inspired and re:integrated.
In her early 20’s, curiosity led her to take a Reflexology workshop. From the very moment she approached the feet in this way, she knew she had found a calling. A gift had been discovered! She searched out programs and weekend intensives around the country, and in 2001 she found one of the most comprehensive reflexology programs available right here in Illinois at the Wellness Massage and Training Institute in Woodridge, IL.
After completing the certification program in 2002, she began her practice at The Art of Healing in Wicker Park and transitioned with them in 2007 into their new space that is now Allyu Spa in River North, an earth conscious spa located along Chicago’s river walk. She worked at this space as a holistic nail tech and reflexologist from 2007 - 2012 and in 2010 she began teaching the method to Allyu’s massage therapists and aestheticians. Her early experiences revealed a passion for teaching, she LOVED sharing knowledge with anyone who had a desire to learn about reflexology. She continues to offer reflexology classes at Allyu Spa, providing Illinois state licensed massage therapists continuing education credits.
Treesha’s commitment to teaching does not end with those working in the healing arts, however. She found that it is just as important and gratifying to teach reflexology to parents who want to learn new ways to support their children’s health and well-being. She has offered in-home instructions to parents as well as facilitating Meetups for those who are interested in learning more about what reflexology is. She received her approval by the NCBTMB (National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork) in Sept 2015 to teach continuing education classes for massage therapists in the areas of Intro to Reflexology, Intro to Foot & Hand Reflexology, Intro to Reflexology using essential oils, and Intro to Reflexology for Pain Relief. She now teaches throughout the United States.
"It is such a good feeling when I can help someone feel better in such a short amount of time. I want to teach anyone who wants to learn how they can help their friends and family. It is a skill we can all know and use."
