of her year. She worked mainly in the Health Service from 1973 – 1990, but also with
her father in his Chiropody Practice in Leyland. Then ill health struck and M.E.
was diagnosed. She was unable to work for a while and left her job with the Health
Marie Rayner established Sole to Soul, Holistic Chiropody, Podiatry and Therapy
Centre, in the market town of Bentham in June 2000.
Her journey back to health brought her to an awareness of Complementary Therapies
It was during this time that she began to train as a Healer, learned the techniques
of Reflexology and Finger Pressure Massage and took a Certificate in Counselling.
Now fully recovered, she successfully combines Chiropody and Complementary Therapies
in her Practice. She continues her therapy and healing development work with regular
workshops and courses run by Pauline Turner, Founder of the International School
of Awareness (ISoA). She is also a registered teacher with the ISoA and teaches her
own courses as well as those developed by ISoA.
