What is reflexology?

Reflexology dates back thousands of years. It is a non-invasive acupressure therapy which aims to optimise both physical and emotional health.
Pressure is applied to specific reflex points in the feet and hands,which correspond to all the various parts of the body. Qi [our energy flow or life force] circulates through our body and through illness,stress or injury our pathways can become ‘blocked’ creating further imbalance and unwanted symptoms.
Reflexology releases stagnated energy,balancing our body and it’s systems.
I’ve specialised in maternity/postnatal reflexology,and Clinical reflexology~for clients living with cancer or auto immune disorders,which has provided a little more understanding around these conditions,and the techniques that optimise the treament. 

 

I’m always interested in expanding my knowledge to support my clients and keep up to date with continued personal development. Keep an eye  on my blog to see what I’m up to and learning.

What can it do for you?

 

 

I treat the very young,to the very elderly. some of the benefits reported include-

Reduction in stress,tension,anxiety.

Improved sleep.

Hormonal balance.

Reduced digestive complaint.

Improvement in stiffness in the neck and back.

Sinus relief.

Pain relief.

Increased energy.

Reflexology works to support all the systems of the body. It will improve circulation bringing more oxygen to cells. It aids detoxification through healthy elimination,and stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system-the rest and digest system,inducing deep relaxation and healing. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Foot and Hand Treatments

Reflexology sessions will usually take around an hour,the first session may take longer as we will discuss your health picture to identify any current areas for concern and your treatment needs. The treatment will take place in a reclining chair or couch and your feet will be wrapped in warm towels. Gentle thumb and finger pressure will be used to stimulate or calm specific points in the feet that correspond to all the various parts of the body. Reflexology is a very relaxing treatment to receive. Hand treatments are usually offered if there is injury or limited access to feet. 

Maternity reflexology

I received Reflexology through both of my pregnancies which I found extremely helpful in many ways. It inspired me to expand my knowledge in Maternity related issues so I could support mums to be on their pregnancy journey. Sessions can usually begin from week 13 (second trimester).
Maternity clients find relief from hormonal related symptoms, morning sickness, sleeplessness, aches and pains, labour and birth.
Receiving Reflexology in the 6 weeks following birth is a wonderful way to bond with your baby. Mums often like to have their treatments at home at this stage, you can cuddle up and feed your baby if needed. The treatment will gently support your body through the healing process,support breastfeeding and  help balance hormones.
