The treatments are holistic, where mind and body are treated as a whole responding in detail to areas as required. This enables each session to be tailored to your own specific needs allowing your body to respond at its own pace. You may just want a one-off treat, but benefits of treatments are cumulative, so a course of sessions may be advised if appropriate.
What is Reflexology?
The earliest evidence of foot pressure therapy dates back around 5000 years and it’s importance in healing has been recognised by most ancient civilisations including those in China, Japan, Egypt and by Native Americans.
I use the renowned Morrell Reflex Touch technique, which uses gentle pressure techniques on the reflex or access points in a precise and systematic way whilst incorporating subtle work in the electromagnetic field. This encourages the release of endorphins, releases tensions, reduces stress, improves sleep, improves mood and gives an improved sense of well-being.
A Typical Session
Typically an appointment lasts about an hour, although the initial consultation is slightly longer as we discuss presenting health and aims for the treatment.
Only footwear and socks need to be removed, but wearing loose comfortable clothing is a good idea. After treatment your feet will be wrapped in soft warm towels and you will be left to rest peacefully for a short while. After the session you are welcome to spend time in the gardens to relax.
For 24 hours following treatment it is advisable to drink plenty of fresh water, avoid strenuous exercise, tea, coffee and alcohol. Very occasionally there can be tiredness or even a slight recurrence of a symptom, but this is short-lived and part of the healing process.

If you are receiving treatment from your doctor or specialist it is suggested they be informed of reflexology treatments. It is imperative that all prescriptive medication is continued under your doctor's supervision.
