Why Reflexology?

    Regular reflexology sessions are nurturing and therapeutic, giving you the time and space to relax and focus on yourself. 

Reflexology is a natural therapy and has been practised for thousands of years.  It is safe, non-invasive and therapeutic.  The therapy is based on the principal and belief that there are reflexes on the feet and face, which directly represent each part of the anatomy.  Reflexology is a touch therapy, by use of gentle and precise techniques, stimulating and working the reflexes with the intention of creating balance back into these areas.   Some feelings of transient discomfort may be felt for a few seconds, but overall the treatment should be deeply relaxing and comforting. Regular sessions are calming and soothing encouraging the body and mind to relax.

We need to recognise when we are experiencing prolonged and sustained stress levels, we may notice changes in our emotions and our physical health. When we remain constantly stressed in a state of 'fight and flight' or 'freeze,' chemicals and hormones flood fill our bodies making it so difficult for us to stay balanced.  Reflexology treatments encourage the body and mind to slow down to a more natural state of 'rest and digest,' they may also help to bring suppressed emotions to the surface which may be causing us stress.   

 

Stress and ill-health can, and does, affect each and everyone of us at some point during our lives.  We all need a healthy level of stress to keep us motivated, driven and to survive.  Stress and associated symptoms vary for each person, we are all unique. We all need to nurture ourselves with a healthy diet and lifestyle, positive relationships and a good work/life balance.  We need to give ourselves time to take a step back and reflect.  Reflexology treatments may help to release tension and stress levels, improve our mood, sleep quality and energy levels, leaving us feeling much more relaxed. 

A positive outlook on life encourages us to take responsibility for our health and well-being.  However there are times for all of us, when we may feel unwell or just out of sorts.  We may find ourselves feeling emotionally low and physically unwell.  Reflexology aims to improve our relaxation levels to further support our well-being. Reflexology practice is becoming increasingly recognised by Health Professionals and is available within some Hospitals and Healthcare settings.

 

What to expect from your Foot or Facial Reflexology session?

Your appointment is about you and how you feel.  What is affecting you right now?  Before you arrive for your first appointment, I will contact you by phone to ask for details of any current medication and any existing or pre-existing medical conditions so that I can check that it is okay to provide a reflexology treatment.  For specific medical conditions I may ask that you speak with your Consultant / Medical Professional to check that they are happy for you to receive reflexology treatments.  Following our conversation I will email you confirmation of your appointment, with further details and a Covid-19 questionnaire that you will need to return 48 hours in advance of your treatment.

 

When you arrive for your first appointment, I will complete a full consultation form with you.  We will have covered some information during our phone call but I will go through everything we have discussed, and also explain how reflexology works and answer any questions you may have.  Please allow up to 75 minutes for your first appointment.

Should you feel unwell or something changes preventing you from attending your appointment, I do ask that you give 48 hours notice of cancellation so that I can offer your appointment to someone else.  If you cancel less than 48 hours in advance of your Reflexology appointment then I ask that full payment is made unless I am unable to fill your appointment.  All treatments must be paid for at the time of the session, I can accept card payments, BACS payments and cash. 

I am an experienced Clinical Reflexologist with over 3 years training, with ongoing professional development. I am trained in both Foot and Facial Reflexology.  I am very passionate about the therapy and how it may support and help people.  I work fully in line with my Professional Body, AOR (Association of Reflexologists) and my Insurers, please see my Privacy and GDPR Statement in FAQ section.

Reflexology does not claim to cure or diagnose.  Reflexology can be used alongside conventional medical treatments supporting your recovery.  I will always put your health and well-being needs first. 

I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you x
