Louise Richardson


Louise Richardson’s reflexology journey began some years ago when she observed how a friend of the family was improving the quality of life for some family members with reflexology.  Louise’s husband is one of those whom she helped.  Several years later, Louise wanted an additional service to offer along with her pedicures and manicures; her husband suggested reflexology.  When Louise found a school, her husband said: “Great!  Who do I make the check out to, and how much?”  And her reflexology practice blossomed from there.

Since then, Louise has had the privilege to help many people improve their quality of life through reflexology.  It has been a rewarding experience, and she plans to keep doing this for as long as her hands can physically do this work.

Having served on the board of another professional organization, Louise understands the roles and responsibilities and feels honored to serve the members of the Florida Association of Reflexology.  She truly believes in the health advantages of receiving these sessions and feels that collectively, reflexologists can help to improve people’s quality of life, one person at a time.
