Reflexology is a non-intrusive complimentary therapy, based on the
principle that all of the organs and structures of the human body can be
mapped out on the feet and hands. By stimulating specific points with my
fingers or thumb (reflexes), the aim is to restore balance and improve
function of the corresponding part of the body
Reflexology can help in a number of ways with people taking benefit from
regular treatments. Usually, client's sense a reduction in tension and
stress, improved mood and sleep, increased energy with an overall
increased sense of wellbeing.
Complimentary therapy means that it sits alongside traditional
treatments, aiding physical recovery and mental health. It is not
intended to replace conventional medicine, but to provide additional
FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE HISTORY OF REFLEXOLOGY
My personal journey, from patient to therapist
I started my reflexology journey in 1997 with 2 years initial training, at
Brunel College then a further year of advanced studies. I can work on
hands and ears but prefer feet using traditional or vertical techniques.
I have been practising this wonderful treatment for over 20 years and am
still amazed by this gentle wonder
What can you expect on your first treatment?
Your relaxing treatment will start with a free consultation so I can
truly understand your needs. Then there will be a gentle and enjoyable
set of movements or pressures by my fingers/thumb on your feet (or
ears/hands). Some of it feels a little like a massage, but it is designed to
improve the meridians (energy lines) through your body. This in turn can
aid balance and health in the body and mind.
It can relieve symptoms of pain or discomfort, from everyday
disease/disorders (for e.g., chronic ones like Crohns) or acute pain such
as back pain or migraines. It can help mental issues like stress or
anxiety, OCD, or insomnia to name a few.
Cancer treatment note - I find it is its most powerful if the session is as
near to treatment (like chemotherapy or
radiotherapy) as possible. It can help to reduce side effects and help
healing and recovery.
After treatment – it is good practice to relax, no rushing around, take
note of body changes over the following couple of days to inform me on
next treatment, drink lots of water and eat light, avoiding alcohol.
It’s a joy in my life and I hope to in yours too
I use aromatherapy oils too and sometimes crystals, plus usually a little
reiki at the end of the treatment (energy balancer). There are no
contraindications, so it is safe for the most vulnerable of patients/clients.
You do not need to have any medical issues to enjoy this lovely
treatment. It is so relaxing that many clients return for regular enjoyable
sessions for the calming effect.
