Justine Finlay, has lived in Newfoundland for over 20 years, where she enjoys raising her family, caring for pets, and hiking the East Coast Trail.
She began her journey with natural health when she received a Reiki session for unresolved health issues. From this one session, her life began to open to all other natural health practices. As such, she was motivated to take her first Reiki training in 2008, and then complete the Master/Teacher certification in 2010.
Having worked in the Western medical field prior to that initial experience, she began to sense how alternative or ancient healing methods are often overlooked and underutilized, and how participating in such practices helps to enhance or significantly benefit a person’s overall health and well-being.
Continuing to seek, learn and experience various non-invasive modes of naturopathy and techniques in possible disease prevention, she later went on to receive certification in Reflexology, Yoga, and Meditation. She currently continues lifelong learning, practicing, and teaching others, so that she may be her healthiest self, while also helping others realize their fullest and healthiest potential.
She believes the biggest first step in participating and reaching this goal is to connect clients and practitioners through the wonderful directory of Healing NL!
