I've always been focused on my feet from a very young age, probably because they are so big. At age 8, I wore a size 8 in women's shoes. My feet continued to grow larger over the years, and now I wear a size 12 or 13, depending upon the style of the shoe. To top it off, I have a wide foot as well. For a long time, finding decent fitting shoes that looked appealing was a nightmare.
My feet used to be a source of embarrassment for me, garnering comments when I was younger. As time moved on, however, I became proud of my feet. They fit my frame well, and hit the ground with force. I liked the way they looked. In addition, the shoe issue has become less of a problem recently, as there are better selections these days.
Nevertheless, even given my years as a bigfoot, I never saw reflexology in my future. I naturally gravitated towards the healing arts, and one day I just decided, "This is it!" And thus, my love of feet was manifested in a new fashion. I am fascinated by all feet: long, short, wide, narrow, those that have sustained injuries. I am concerned with their well-being, especially since I now know so much more about their importance.
Sole Sorcery was born of this love, and I hope to impart my passion about feet, and healing of feet, to others.
