Nancie Hines is one of seven nationally certified reflexologists in Oregon with over 600 hours of reflexology training from the Seattle Reflexology and Massage Center, and Bill Flocco's American Academy of Reflexology in Los Angeles.  She also earned a Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the Phillips Graduate School in CA and a BA from the University of Washington in Seattle.

 

Nancie discovered her passion for feet when she began working with seniors who had diabetes.  She was a sales rep for a company working with the Shoe Bill--a federal government program offering new shoes and inserts annually to those with Medicare and diabetes to cut down on the billions Medicare was spending for surgeries and amputation because of diabetes.


"When I took people's socks off and held their feet to do a visual observation, something happened deep inside me," she'll tell you. "I began connecting with people in a way that taught me about service at a profound level."

 

Nancie enrolled in reflexology school in Seattle where she was living.  Later she returned to Portland and opened her business, Portland Reflexology, in 2008.  Her private practice continues to grow and she is a founding member of the Oregon Reflexology Network, a group for anyone interesting in expanding reflexology in Oregon and SW Washington.
