Ruth Spurling - Reiki Master & Teacher
My name is Ruth Spurling. I am a qualified and accredited Reiki Master and Teacher. I originally trained as a Montessori Teacher in London and work with children in London, Paris and USA. In the 90's I returned to Ireland to work in the cinema business and shortly afterwards my son Joshua was born. I have always had an interest in holistic therapies and trained as a reflexologist in 2001. When Joshua was born with down syndrome, it came as a big shock initially, as with most mothers of new babies I just wanted what was best for Joshua, so we ended up at a Baby Massage class. It was such a profound bonding experience that I trained as one of the first instructors in Ireland. This opened more doors, training as a Pregnancy Yoga teacher & Indian Head Massage.
In 2009 after a spell of bad health Reiki found me! The experience was subtle yet so powerful. Training commenced and my practise opened in 2010. I'm so grateful for my Guides Eileen and Brian. Every since then, Reiki has become part of my daily life & I love sharing that experience with friends and clients alike.
