Reflexology is a natural and holistic art of Healing - A Complementary Therapy.
The origins of Reflexology date back to around 2330 BC, being practised by the early Indian, Chinese and Egyptian people.
It is a precisely defined form of treatment based on the principle that the anatomy of the body is reflected in miniature on reflex zones/points on the feet and hands.
By working on these reflexes using specific techniques of holds and pressures, blockages in the energy pathways are cleared, inducing relaxation and balance.
Reflexology can be used to help restore and maintain the body's natural equilibrium. Promoting deep relaxation and wellbeing, helping to reduce stress levels in peoples lives thereby optimising good health.
Reflexology is suitable for all ages, is non-invasive and may bring relief from a wide range of acute and chronic conditions -
Treating the whole person, not just symptoms.

On the first visit there is an initial introductory chat /consultation to take your details, determine your past and present health and lifestyle plus discuss what you are looking to achieve from having Reflexology.
Then you may lie back and relax - I will then begin to use my hands to work on your feet, or hands if necessary, using a variety of holds, movements and pressures. Pressure used should not be painful (not very relaxing for you!) but will be firm enough to not be tickly!
This treatment will relax you while stimulating the body's own healing mechanisms.
Usually, after a treatment you may feel your tension levels may be reduced and you might feel much more relaxed.
You might also notice your sleep improves and find your mood and sense of well-being improving.
Other aspects of your health may improve too; however, this happens on an individual basis.
The first treatment will last approximately 1.5 hrs - this includes your free initial consultation followed by the treatment of approx. 1 hour.
Subsequent treatment sessions will be 1 hour.
Frequency of recommended Reflexology sessions will be dependant on each individuals circumstances and what they would like to achieve from having Reflexology - this can be discussed before making your first appointment or during.
