Reflexology soothing the body mind and soul..

Reflexology can help with numerous issues. Reflexology has been around a long time and practiced by many Ancient cultures Chinese Aboriginals to name a few. There is evidence the Egyptians practiced an early method by the carvings on the walls of the tomb of physician Ankhmahor at Saggara in Egypt of people massaging the feet. 

As an experienced and licensed reflexologist, I use my  knowledge and expertise to provide you with a relaxing and therapeutic experience that can help to improve your overall health and well-being.

Stress Reduction

Reflexology can help to reduce stress and promote relaxation, which can help to reduce anxiety, improve mood, and promote a sense of calm.

Improved Circulation

Reflexology can help to improve circulation, promoting the flow of blood and oxygen throughout the body, which can help to improve overall health and reduce the risk of chronic disease.

Pain Relief

Reflexology can help to relieve pain and tension in the muscles, joints, and connective tissues, reducing inflammation and promoting healing.

Improved Sleep

Reflexology can help to promote relaxation and reduce stress, making it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep.

Enhanced Immune System

Reflexology can help to stimulate the immune system, promoting the body’s natural ability to fight off illness and disease.

What to expect

You may be laid on a massage couch or sat in a reclining chair. The therapist will ask you questions in order to find out some of your background. This is so it can be determined if you are ok to have the treatment. Some medical issues could be contradictions for the treatment. e.g. Some cancers, recent heart attack or strokes.

This does not mean you can never have a treatment but will help the therapist decide if you need to have permission from a doctor before you begin any sessions. It is important to remember that complementary therapists do not try to diagnose illness. We like to work alongside the medical industry and always advise you to seek medical help if you have any health worries. That said they are many things we can help with.

Anxiety, stress, pain relief, insomnia, grief, depression release trapped emotions and more. It is also good if you just want to relax and have no issues. By using acupressure on your feet. we can work the whole body as all the different parts of your body are linked to the corresponding reflex point in your feet. There are so many times people come to me and say how much their feet ache and when we get started, I find the pain in the feet are related to a problem somewhere else on the body. This is because your nerves all end in the feet.

The pressure used is different to that of being tickled so if you are worried I have had people who say they cant stand their feet being touched due to being ticklish but have always managed to have reflexology. It is also possible to have reflexology on the hands, so if there is a problem such as feet are bandaged and inaccessible you are still able to have a reflexology treatment.
