My name is Kip DiPaolo and I live in the United States of America in the State of Connecticut in a small quaint town called Goshen of just over 1000 people. I was born in the state of Massachusetts and also lived in the Big City of New York for 17 years.
I began my career in Natural Therapies later in life, after I was diagnosed with severe kidney disease. To make the story short, I was told my kidneys would not return to full function and that I would need to be put on dialysis for the remainder of my life or until a transplant came my way.
It was at that time that I started to take things in my own hands, and fight this disease to the fullest with all my heart and soul, to stop this demon that was trying to take my good quality of life away! I changed my diet to all ‘live food’ (fruit and veggies), pure filtered water, fresh juice, herbal teas, etc. I started a good quality ‘exercise programme’. I was on my way to better health!!
Along the way, a friend of mine started to do Reflexology treatments on my feet and hands. After three full weeks of treatment of my own, and receiving Reflexology, my doctors were amazed to see my kidney function had returned to a good quality and dialysis and a future transplant were now not necessary! I was so amazed with the reflexology performed on me, and how good it made me feel, that I wanted to learn this profession as well. I decided I would do my own searching for a Training Programme I would be interested in taking. I looked at many providers, even almost signed up for a programme here in the States. Just the day before that programme was to start, I came across the School Of Natural Health Sciences. From the moment I looked at the web site I was sold. I looked and read the whole web site with a fine toothed comb, to make sure I didn’t miss anything. I even did a search to see if there were any problems listed about the school and that day I sent for my first lessons in Reflexology.
When the materials were downloaded onto my computer, and I started to study the very first lesson, I realized for certain that I made the best decision for me. I got my first diploma from the The School of Natural Health Sciences (SNHS) in January 2012 in Reflexology. Since then, I have taken many courses from SNHS as well as other schools here in the States.
I currently just finished a full massage programme here because in most Counties in the USA, you need to be licensed before you can practice. I also opened my own business in 2012 called ‘Subtle Medicine Natural Remedies’. I offer many different modalities e.g. Massage Therapy, Reflexology, Hypnotherapy, Life Coaching, EFT, Indian Head Massage, Aromatherapy, Acupressure, Stress Management, Meditation, Reiki, Holistic Dowsing, Herbalism, etc. I also have a full natural remedy spa at the business which sells all sorts of natural items such as, Essential Oils, Diffusers, Detox Items, many different bulk herbs, Bach Flower Remedies, Reiki Stones, Natural Soaps and Lotions, Tarot Cards, Pendulums, Crystals etc, etc. One very unique thing I have in my ‘natural spa’ is an area where clients can come to purchase the powered herbs they are interested in and encapsulate them right at the spa and take them home. This way of purchasing herbs is a lot less expensive for the client than getting the same product already bottled. With a little work of about 15 min. a client can make up to 100 capsules of their own liking. Reference books and other literature are available as well as my expertise in the subject.
I believe I am the first in this area to offer this sort of way to purchase personalised herbs. I know you can purchase encapsulating machines and herbs at other places, but no one in this area has a place right in the business to do it, along with sound advice and expertise.
My business has turned out to be very successful and I am certain that it is because of the day I learned about the School of Natural Health Sciences (SNHS).
All the courses I have studied are very well written and cover all the necessary information to make one a true ‘professional’ in the field they choose. Whenever I finish a course from SNHS, I feel confident to present myself to my first clients, and know what I am talking about.
I have obtained my membership of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners, AADP. This is the ‘professional body’ who provide full board accreditation and certification for all of the School of Natural Health Sciences courses, in the USA & Canada.
I read and study other sources besides my classes with the school. However I have not learned much more elsewhere that was not already covered in those subjects I have taken with SNHS. Some of the subjects I studied I offer in my practice, others are just for my own personal gain. One thing I know for sure and that is nobody or anything can take an education away from you. The more one studies, no matter what it may be, the more one will build your confidence and broaden your mind. Each of the natural courses help one another and, the more courses you study, the more proficient you will become as a true ‘professional therapist’.
Another thing I’d like to say is no matter what your age, education is a wonderful thing. It’s yours to keep forever more, and nothing or no one can take if from you.
I was so impressed to read in the School’s recent Newsletter about a student named Louis Bedwell, who has studied Nutrition and is now ‘making his own products’. He has a quest to raise over 10,000 pounds for cancer research – he is only 19 years old! – Great job! Keep up the good work!
I am 62 going on 63 and still learning and building my career. The School of Natural Health Sciences is here for the taking! If I can say one more thing – If you have any doubt about this School, let it all go away, because you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by getting your diplomas at The School of Natural Health Sciences (SNHS).
Thank you for your time and reading my article and my God Bless each and every one!
