I have been practising as a complementary therapist since 1996, after spending twenty-two years in the teaching profession. As a practitioner I aim to support the body's own innate healing system in its work. I believe that complementary therapies have an important role to play, not only in improving health, but in maintaining it also. Much of my work helps clients to relax and break the cycle of stress from which they suffer. Deep relaxation encourages healing and re-energising.
The principle of reflexology is that body parts have corresponding reflexes in feet and hands. Gentle finger pressure to these reflexes is believed to stimulate the body's natural healing ability and to balance systems. It may relieve stress, which causes many disorders.
Treatment lasts for about one hour and can be given alongside other therapies. Some people choose regular reflexology to maintain good health. (Reflexology is not used to diagnose medical conditions.) Read more about reflexology here...
Reflexology is a deeply relaxing, restorative therapy which results in stress reduction and causes a physiological change which can help maintain the body's natural equilibrium and encourage healing.
The treatment in non invasive, simple, safe and could benefit all age groups. Reflexology works well alongside other therapies.
I do this by offering a choice of massage medium (talc powder, oil, cream, or nothing at all). Specific pressure points are then massaged on the feet, which helps to re-balance and unblock any congestion in the corresponding area of the body.
Reflexology can help with a host of ailments from headaches and sinus problems to back pain relief. This massage can also be emotionally stimulating. It's truly healing from sole to soul.
