Reflexology

What Is Reflexology 

Reflexology is an ancient practice which has been used on the feet to achieve health and well being for thousands of years. Reflexology is a gentle, yet effective therapy which  is non invasive and totally natural. It is a wonderful natural complementary treatment for women’s health and all things hormonal such as fertility, pregnancy, miscarriage, menopause, puberty etc. It works on the principal that every organ and system in the body 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, or a re balancing of energy levels and thus well being. Above all it is deeply relaxing.

It is Similar to acupuncture (but without the needles!) Reflexology works with the body’s meridians. The theory is that all parts of the body are connected to areas on the face, feet and hands. When these areas are stimulated, it sends a signal through the nervous system to the brain, to improve the function of internal organs and glands.

In all of my treatments I work incorporating Chinese medicine theory including the five elements. This gives me a tool to focus the body’s energetic patterns in a supportive way.

​What are the benefits of Reflexology?

An individual’s good health depends upon the fine balance of many systems of the body. Feelings of stress, tension and anxiety can have a negative effect upon the endocrine and cardiovascular system and may lead to stress related illnesses. Reflexology can be extremely effective in alleviating stress and improving hormonal imbalances thereby:

Other conditions which I treat include:

  • Reducing stress levels and the associated symptoms of stress
  • Reducing menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats and achy joints
  • Aiding natural fertility and conception
  • Supporting IVF, IUI and medicated fertility cycles
  • Reducing PMS and PMT symptoms
  • Helping to reduce the effects of PCOS and Endometriosis, and improving cycle regularity
  • Reducing many of the discomforts of hormonal disruption in pregnancy
  • Encouraging pregnancy labour
  • Reducing stress and anxiety during pregnancy and following birth
  • Pain related conditions
  • Gastrointestinal conditions such as IBS
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Insomnia

When to have Reflexology

For general health and wellbeing a monthly treatment is advised. However when wanting to address particular issues more frequent treatment will be optimal – we can discuss this during your Initial Consultation.

I am trained in Reproreflexology and I am a member of The Association Of Reproductive Reflexologists (MARR), The Association Of Reflexologists (MAR) and The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR).
