“A wonderful experience - so relaxing and peaceful” Chris
MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO THE WAY YOU FEEL
You may just stand on them or keep them out of sight but your feet are totally fascinating. In reflexology your feet are the guidebook to your body showing reflex areas which correspond to different parts of the body. Precise pressure techniques are used on these access points to help calm the nervous system and to re-balance and stimulate the body's natural self healing processes. By deepening relaxation, reflexology allows the systems of the body to function more efficiently.
Reflexology is a powerful and validated complementary therapy which can be the ‘off button’ for your mind helping to ease away tensions, calm mental anxiety and soothe unsettled emotions. The release of tension and deep relaxation created during a reflexology treatment are vital ingredients for health and wellbeing. I have found particular success in treating those experiencing anxiety, stress-related symptoms, fertility and pain management.
Clients come to me for many and varied reasons. It may be to seek a natural holistic approach to health and relaxation, or for specific health issues such as fertility and maternity issues, muscle tension, IBS, migraine, MS, or for help moving through a life event. There are now many scientific studies showing reflexology to be a validated therapy. Read how reflexology is effective in pain management from The Nursing Times. Click here
In fact, GPs confirm that stress and anxiety are key factors in 75% of health issues from infertility to cancer. Reflexology now holds a vital place within our modern healthcare system now integrated within the NHS. Reflexology works with conventional medicine or as a complementary treatment in its own right.
