Se­crets to a happy life by Frances Fuller

She may be 74 years old but she is sure young at heart and soul. A cer­ti­fied mas­sage ther­a­pist and a liv­ing life sur­vivor, Frances Fuller (FF) is the founder of Fuller Life Bali, a non-profit foun­da­tion and ed­u­ca­tion cen­ter that aims to help peo­ple to have a bal­anced life with them­selves and the sur­round­ing en­vi­ron­ment through Rain­bow Heal­ing Sys­tem – a heal­ing method that she cre­ated – us­ing es­sen­tial oils. Here, she shares her mag­i­cal story to Bali & Beyond (BB) af­ter be­ing to­tally re­cov­ered from many se­ri­ous in­juries.

BB: How was your first en­counter with es­sen­tial oils?

FF: I love be­ing out­doors and do­ing ex­er­cises. One day, I had an ac­ci­dent on a tram­po­line. I took many med­i­ca­tions to avoid any surgery sug­gested by many doc­tors I met. A few years later, a friend in­vited me to join a work­shop about es­sen­tial oils. I ac­tu­ally made every ex­cuse I could come up with to not at­tend the work­shop, but my friend would not take “no” for an an­swer so I went any­way with zero ex­pec­ta­tion. All I did af­ter that was try each oil that I got at the event. From that mo­ment, I use es­sen­tial oils in every phase of my life.

BB: You used to be a math teacher. What made you turn to the ther­a­peu­tic world?

FF: I had a neck in­jury in early 1987 and was told to have surgery. I was given anti-in­flam­ma­tory drugs which to­tally up­set my di­ges­tive sys­tem and caused ver­tigo. A friend took me to a chi­ro­prac­tor, and my neck re­sponded quite pos­i­tively to the chi­ro­prac­tic ad­just­ments and mas­sage. As a re­sult, I be­came in­ter­ested in mas­sage, and af­ter over 20 years of teach­ing high school math, I de­cided to go to a mas­sage school.

The funny thing was my daugh­ter also de­cided to learn about be­com­ing a ther­a­pist. So, I was glad that I got the chance to learn and study about mas­sage and ther­apy to­gether with her. Af­ter that, I ap­plied as a ther­a­pist in the Four Sea­sons Re­sort in Flor­ida. By that time, I in­vented the Rain­bow Heal­ing Sys­tem, and I be­came one of the ‘most-wanted’ ther­a­pists. I worked there for more than two years un­til I de­cided to move to Asia.

BB: What do you re­ally want to share to peo­ple about liv­ing healthily?

FF: I have per­son­ally seen hun­dreds of peo­ple have their choles­terol level re­turn back to nor­mal range within a few months. Of course, it can only work if they also elim­i­nate the “three poi­sons”; sugar, caf­feine and dairy prod­ucts. Al­co­hol and so­das are in­cluded.

BB: What is your key to a fuller life?

FF: I strongly be­lieve that the key to a fuller life is by shar­ing the good­ness of life with as many

peo­ple as you meet. I have gone through many health chal­lenges, from ab­dom­i­nal surg­eries to en­dometrio­sis, to au­toim­mune dis­eases and a lot more. This is one of the rea­sons why I de­cided to move from Flor­ida to Asia and build Fuller Life Bali in 2015.

BB: Can you tell us more about the Rain­bow Heal­ing Sys­tem that you in­vented?

FF: The Rain­bow Heal­ing Sys­tem is a way to main­tain sta­ble and bal­anced en­ergy as you evolve into your au­then­tic self – the be­ing that you were cre­ated to be. I also in­vented it with Rain­bow Heal­ing Cards, which can be played. This new tool can as­sist clients in un­der­stand­ing them­selves and oth­ers, and help them cre­ate more har­mo­nious re­la­tion­ships with oth­ers. I also help them to use th­ese cards to sup­port them on their evo­lu­tion­ary jour­ney or for daily in­spi­ra­tion.

BB: Do you work a lot with the lo­cals in your foun­da­tion?

FF: Yes, I hired around 50 Balinese to take care of and man­age this foun­da­tion. I am happy to work with them; they are peo­ple with ded­i­ca­tion and I trust them to run this place every day. Here, we of­fer not only es­sen­tial oil ther­apy but also all well­ness treat­ments, from live blood anal­y­sis and colon hy­drother­apy to bio­med­i­cal de­vices for bal­ance. We also of­fer pos­tural anal­y­sis, rain­drop tech­nique, Reiki, Rain­bow Heal­ing ses­sions, full body mas­sages, detox­i­fi­ca­tion ser­vices in­clud­ing colonics, fa­cials and foot re­flex­ol­ogy, as well as cook­ing work­shops and or­ganic gar­den­ing.

BB: How do you deal with stress from work­ing un­der pres­sure?

FF: I al­ways use the “Stress Away” from Young Liv­ing es­sen­tial oil to soothe my­self when­ever I feel de­pressed or stressed. I usu­ally ap­ply it on my neck and breathe in the aroma for six to eight sec­onds. Af­ter over­com­ing my stress, I usu­ally use the “Be­lieve” es­sen­tial oil, also from Young Liv­ing, to bring back my con­fi­dence when­ever I feel like I am los­ing it.

BB: How do you per­son­ally feel af­ter us­ing es­sen­tial oils for more than 14 years now?

FF: Young Liv­ing es­sen­tial oils have changed my life tremen­dously. At this age, I can still do a lot of things. Es­sen­tial oils have been the main key in my daily life. As a Royal Crown Di­a­mond of Young Liv­ing, I have reg­u­larly shared my ex­pe­ri­ence to other users. Af­ter years of us­ing es­sen­tial oils, I now travel through­out Asia to share the ben­e­fits of Young Liv­ing prod­ucts and fo­cus upon ex­pand­ing the well­ness and ed­u­ca­tion cen­ter that I founded, the Fuller Life Bali.
