Certified Shiatsu Provider

Holley Nielsen, RRPr, joined our clinic in 1997, but began ‘practicing’ Reflexology at the knee of her Great Grandma in the early 1970’s, who had brought this healing practice first to the Canadian prairies in 1919 & then to Vancouver in 1947.  Her Great Aunt developed the first school & curriculum to train Therapeutic Reflexologists under the tutelage of Dr. Eunice Ingram, & Holley was a student & teacher there, as well as providing courses for both Douglas College & Simon Fraser University.

As a perpetual student in her life journey & purpose, Holley completed advanced Therapeutic Reflexology Training, including Cranial Sacral Reflexology, with the famous English Holistic Healer Dr. Madame Claude Faire in 1997 & achieved her RRPr designation from the Reflexology Registration Council of Canada in 2000.

She is student & counselor in the field of Mind/Body Medicine & Ayurveda under the guidance of Dr. Deepak Chopra & Dr. David Simon.  In 1996, Holley successfully completed their Health Educators Certification Program.  Bringing a multi-disciplinary approach to her healing work, Holley also has training in Counselling (Simon Fraser University, 1989), Traditional Chinese Medicine (Dr. Effie Chow, 1994), Nutritional & Plant Herbal Medicine (Douglas College, 1995), & Shiatsu Training (Zen Shiatsu Institute 2007).
