Urban Reflexology is the sole practice of Liz Pyle, a Washington State and National Board Certified Reflexologist whose introduction to reflexology came from a chance encounter years ago. That encounter led her to seek out reflexology and reflexologists ever since. She received Mastery Certification locally and obtained National Board Certification from the American Reflexology Certification Board.
Liz chairs the Washington Reflexology Association's Legislative Committee and has returned to the WRA Board to serve as the 2018/2019 Vice President after serving as the Administrative Secretary in 2011-2014 and Interim Membership Secretary in 2017. Believing that there are multiple paths to the same destination she combines her enthusiasm for reflexology with her compassion, intuition and Level II Reiki training - it's her belief that the varied approaches blend well with the intention to provide the highest level of technical and ethical service.
More about Liz:
Random accomplishment she's most proud of: She completely re-insulated the crawl space under her house. (For the sake of complete disclosure: someone else was paid to remove the original insulation and install vapor barrier first so the crawl space was probably as clean as her living room at the time.) It took two days and at the end of day two she was exhausted and bruised from crawling over concrete slag but extremely proud of her work although she was slightly disappointed that no one ever got to view her work when they visited.
Secret Talent: Can write her name using a pencil held by her toes.
Time well spent: Raising children... everyone lived.
Time wasted: Years spent trying to hide freckles with makeup.
Note from Liz (which is actually a subtle marketing pitch): Hi, it's me, Liz. I'm a Seattle native but when I was a freshman in high school my grandmother, who lived on Coronado Island in California, died. It was February and my parents left my brother and I in the hotel while they went to make funeral arrangements. I'll never forget looking into the mirror when I came in from the pool, my freckles had multiplied! It was horrifying - I scrubbed so hard thinking that if I got to them right away I could wash them off. Didn't work. I rubbed my face raw, removing the top layer of skin but the freckles stayed.
I have an older sister and a younger brother, who between them may have 12 freckles. And then there was me: freckle-face-strawberry. I wore a lot of makeup. I wore long sleeves and long pants all year round. I thought I was hiding those freckles. I wasn't.
It was years later that I was blessed with an epiphany. I realized that no one cared. Everyone has something they try to hide... something they think everyone is looking at... so while I thought someone was noticing my freckles, they were thinking I was looking at their big nose or their ugly feet.
As humans, we tend to be fairly self-absorbed and this brings me to my point (and the subtle marketing pitch): why would anyone worry that their feet are too ugly to experience reflexology? I've yet to see any feet so unattractive that I'd hesitate to touch them. Human touch is very powerful and perception is reality. Your life suffers if your feet hurt. Or is it the other way around?
Make an appointment to come in and see me. You'll be glad you did!
