Meet Marta Lacerda, a committed Functional Movement Reflexologist and Barefoot Training Specialist® who intertwines her personal history, passion, and qualifications to help improve lives. Growing up as an athlete, Marta developed a keen fascination with the interaction between our feet and the rest of our body. She was captivated by the concept of reflexology – that through foot stimulation, a variety of sensations and emotions could be influenced. This interest eventually sparked her career.
Marta holds multiple specialist certifications, such as Naboso Neurosensory Specialist® and Interoception and Performance Specialist®. Her qualifications have been recognized by several healthcare insurance companies, including VHI Healthcare and AVIVA Health.
She has dedicated her work life to unlocking the secret world of feet since finishing her reflexology course in 2017. Now she offers services both online and in person, helping you understand the critical role your feet play in your overall health and wellbeing. Whether you’re dealing with health conditions like stress and anxiety or foot-specific issues like Plantar Fasciitis or balance problems, Marta’s Functional Movement Reflexology can help.
What makes her approach unique? Marta believes in the power of your feet:
- Feet as Foundations: They bear the weight of your entire body, enabling movement and activity.
- Awareness Tools: Your feet, abundant with nerves, inform your brain about your spatial positioning, facilitating safe and efficient motion.
- Healing and Restoration: Following the teachings of Eunice Ingham, the mother of modern Reflexology, Marta recognizes that foot imbalances can influence upper body health and vice versa.
- Connection to Nature: Marta also advocates for the benefits of earthing or grounding, such as reduced inflammation and regulated circadian rhythm.
In choosing Marta, you’re empowering your health journey with the guidance of a specialist with the symbiotic relationship between nature, body, and its wellness.
