About Ruairi

I am Ruairi O’Duil.

I used to be very stressed.

Now I help stressed, careworn people to relax, recover and re-connect.

I was born in Dublin, Ireland and lived there with my wife and two sons until September 2006 when we migrated to Australia and settled in Melbourne ‘s Western Suburbs.

I have a business background and have owned and managed businesses since my 20’s. I am well aware of the stresses of work life and modern living, having suffered most of them, and I like to think that this has given me a practical and common-sense attitude to life. My decision to sell my company, follow my heart into a new direction and career and transplant my family halfway around the world might suggest otherwise!!

I reckon that it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

Helping people to feel better is so much better than work.

The clients I have worked with in the 12 years working as a professional reflexologist have taught me that the central nervous system is the key to wellness. I use Reflexology to calm the Stress Response and activate the Parasympathetic nervous system: the “Rest, Repair and Recover” Response. This helps the client  to slow the heart rate, increase intestinal and glandular activity, and to stimulate their immune systems.

Essentially, I am helping my clients to help themselves.

These are the words my clients use to describe me

I am a fully trained, professional Reflexologist with Practitioners Certificates in Reflexology examined and awarded by the Association of Reflexologists (AoR) UK and by ITEC.

I am a full Professional Member of the Reflexology Association of Australia.
