Reflexology can aid women throughout all periods of change in their life boosting well being and allowing the body to return to its natural state of balance. From the onset of menstruation and puberty, through to fertility, pregnancy, peri menopause, post menopause and beyond. Each of these stages is a unique and powerful experience for a woman resulting in many physical and psychological changes.
How I Work
I will go through a full health and well being consultation and create a bespoke treatment plan to suit your needs using a combination of releasing techniques for congestion and tension and tonifying techniques to support underlying depletion or tiredness.
I work incorporating the Five Element traditional Chinese medical system, which brings in new emotional, mental and physiological associations to the organ systems of the body which allows us to see your life as a whole and offer supportive after care and treatment plans. I am also trained in Lymph Drainage Reflexology RLD and can incorporate this into treatments, which has been shown to reduce oedema and is used safely with secondary lymph oedema which can occur from issues such as post cancer treatments.
A course of reflexology treatment works by helping to balance hormones and reducing levels of stress and anxiety which may also impact upon physical and emotional well being. Depending on your presenting condition a course of 4 to 8 treatments may be recommended
Reflexology may help to support the body and encourage the body’s natural healing process in relation to:
- Back pain
- Headaches where there is a stress link
- Poor digestion
- Asthma where there is a stress link
- Provides support to chronic illness
- Cancer support
- Premenstrual Syndrome
- Dysmenorrhea (painful periods)
- Menorrhagia (heavy periods)
- Hormonal imbalances
- Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
- Peri menopause
- Amenorrhea (absence of periods)
If desired the Reflexology treatment may be complemented with relaxing mindfulness meditation exercises techniques and Reiki ,which may help to alleviate the physical symptoms and effects of stress and anxiety as well as helping your mind to feel more relaxed and less uncertain. Thoughts will be able to flow into and out of your mind without spiraling into anxiety and your body will release its pent-up tension, improving sleep, digestion, breathing and restoring hormone balance.
