Still eager to learn more, Kirsten enrolled in Irene’s Myomassology Institute (IMI) to further her skills in health modalities and studied meridian based courses and bio-energetic studies like prana in reflexology, shiatsu, applied kinesiology, craniosacral therapy, etc. to add to her myomassology course. She also kept learning in Canada as well by training in Therapeutic Touch. After 3 years of consecutive study, Kirsten felt ready to pursue her fulltime practice in Reflexology.
This led to the beginning of her seven years as the in-house therapist at a local factory. Kirsten was involved in helping to reduce lost time due to injuries and absences from sick time, repetitive strain injuries, speedy recovery and mostly, reduce WSIB costs. However, after extreme downsizing in the company and the arrival of the CAW, she had to move on and restart her career elsewhere. In the meantime, she took personal time off to recover from heart surgery due to a congenital heart condition. By June 17th, 2005, Kirsten was back in business with her own practice and teaching service under the business name of 'Blok’s HANDS Of Healing'.
Kirsten sits on a board of the Reflexology Registration Council of Ontario (RRCO) as a service to the survival of reflexology in Ontario. This board is dedicated to keep reflexology of holistic and of professional health care status. In 2002, Kirsten also founded the Feet Meet Group, a private networking group for local reflexologists, in and around our area, to share and learn from each other. It is a place for new students and other reflexologists, to come to after they have passed the written test in order to practice and do the clinical hours with other students and veterans alike. Kirsten firmly believes that reflexology should be a household name and a common home remedy to enhance health naturally.
