Foot and Facial Reflexology Available
Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different reflex points on the feet correspond with different areas of the body. In a treatment I use specific techniques to stimulate these points. Whilst it does not claim to diagnose or cure, a treatment will often result in an increased sense of well-being and relaxation with all the health benefits this can bring. It is particularly useful for stress related conditions as it helps to discharge the negative effects of stress and stimulate the body’s own healing.
Reflexology is a renewal and maintenance programme for the body. It not only aids recovery but helps the body to maintain health. It is not necessary to have a ‘symptom’ to benefit from reflexology.
I work holistically, and can work alongside allopathic healthcare to promote better health for their clients. It is a therapy which is suitable for people of all ages from newborn babies to those receiving end of life care.
Each treatment lasts 50 minutes (please allow 75 minutes for initial consultation). A course of treatments will usually be recommended, depending upon the individual needs of the client.
As well as having all the health benefits of foot reflexology, Facial Reflexology has a direct rejuvenating effect on the skin, leaving the face glowing and radiant just after one session. It improves lymphatic drainage aiding the removal of waste products and toxins, relieves tension in the muscle tissue, relieves mental strain and improves concentration. It is particularly effective for reducing the symptoms of migraines, IBS, teeth grinding, insomnia and stress as well as proving effective in alleviating the effects of Bell’s Palsy and a number of neurological conditions.
Having had extensive experience working in a hospice, I am pleased to offer reflexology and reiki treatments to support people with cancer, MS and a number of other long-term health conditions.
Treatments for Children
Reflexology can be very effective for children, helping to reduce anxiety and symptoms of ADHD, Tourettes syndrome, and exam stress.
