What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a safe and natural complimentary therapy which is usually practised on the feet. It is non invasive and totally natural and it is suitable for all ages from newborns to the elderly in restoring the body’s natural balance and rhythms. Reflexology is a way of relaxing your body and mind and it may help to reduce stress and anxiety. It can help to unwind the mind and it has a “grounding effect” on all the systems of the body. It can be incorporated into a busy lifestyle as part of a coping strategy with the effect of a calmer mind and a less achy body.
Reflexology works on the principle that every organ and system has a corresponding reflex point on the soles of the feet and palms of the hands. The stimulation of these reflex points is designed to bring about a shift, a change or a re balancing of energy levels and thus well being. Above all it is very relaxing.

What Is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is a treatment which uses essential oils for physical and emotional well being. Essential oils are powerful extracts from flowers, herbs, spices, grasses, resins or bark and are utilised for their medicinal properties. I work with over 70 different organic essential oils, thus ensuring that each individual clients needs are being met. The oils are mixed with a carrier oil and are massaged into your skin using traditional massage techniques together with lymphatic drainage techniques and acupressure and hot basalt stones leaving you calm and relaxed. I am able to combine if required deep tissue massage to target areas of muscular tension
I have an intuitive style which combines aromatherapy with if required deep tissue massage to which I may target areas of muscular tension using traditional manual techniques or combined with basalt hot stones. Aromatherapy offers a wonderful preventative measure to maintain well being and to support the body’s natural healing process.
A full consultation will be taken at your first appointment, this will enable me to to choose the best essential oils for you. Future treatments will include a mini consultation to enable me to choose the most suitable essential oils for you. During your massage your privacy will be protected at all times, you will be covered in towels and only the areas being worked on at any given time will be uncovered.
