I am not currently offering treatments under Tier 5 rules, so please do not try to book a specific date/time. You can however purchase a voucher to use once treatments recommence, or contact me to request an update post-lockdown. Thank you, and stay safe.
Reflexology treatments are a blissfully enjoyable experience as they create a deep sense of relaxation, helping the body to re-balance, and encouraging the body's own healing mechanisms. It can be enjoyed as a one-off treatment, or as a course of treatments. There is evidence to suggest that a version of Reflexology was practised within ancient cultures in Egypt and China. Modern day Western reflexology however is based on zone theory, which follows the work of Dr William Fitzgerald in the early 20th Century when he identified the link between the application of pressure to certain areas of the body, and anaesthetising effects felt elsewhere. This work was furthered by his successors whose research led them to map a series of reflex points in the feet and hands, and note associated signs of healing within the body, thus creating modern reflexology as it is practised today.
What to expect from a Reflexology treatment
My standard reflexology treatments are 60 minutes in length, unless arranged by prior agreement, and under Covid-19 conditions will be carried out following strict protocols. This means that we will be both wearing masks, and I will also wear a visor and apron for additional protection. You will currently be treated on your own furniture, either a sofa or comfortable chair where you can put your feet up, or a bed will also work well.
At your first treatment I will carry out a short medical history with you, to ensure that the treatment is tailored to your needs. After this you will then be invited to fully relax, with your feet raised, for the remainder of the treatment. It is a very relaxing experience, and many people fall asleep during reflexology.
After the treatment we will discuss any reflexes that felt out of balance or displayed sensitivity, answering any questions you may have, before leaving you to enjoy your relaxation!
Reflexology in pregnancy
I have undertaken further qualifications in maternity reflexology for pre and post natal mothers. Pregnancy is a time when your body is going through a tremendous amount of change, and so also a time when it is particularly beneficial to take time to yourself, to focus on relaxation and well-being, to support both yourself and your growing baby.
I have carried out detailed research on this topic, gathering information from 527 people regarding their experiences, which I will use to help tailor reflexology treatments. Please contact me before booking if you suspect that you are affected by Long Covid, and we can arrange a shorter first session to reduce the risk of a healing reaction.
In addition to viewing the foot as a reflection of the rest of the body, I also consider the foot itself, seeking to help relieve unexplained tension within the feet. I believe that the feet are a much neglected area of the body, often crammed into unsuitable shoes, which over time can cause issues locally potentially also affecting other joints further up the body. Through our initial consultation we will work to relax the muscles of the feet, encouraging them to function as they should.
Reflexology Lymph Drainage
I have undertaken specialist training in this award-winning technique
Focusing on the areas of the body in which tension is most commonly held, this treatment includes massage of the upper back, shoulders, neck and head. You remain fully clothed throughout, and no oil is used, so there is no need to rush home and shower afterwards! Pressure can be applied to suit your preferences, and particular attention paid to known areas of tension.
I understand that becoming a mum is both extremely rewarding, and also very challenging. With so little time to yourself it is often impossible to treat yourself, even though you really deserve it! So, why don't you invite me to join you and your NCT friends at a small gathering. Each of you can benefit from a relaxing 30 minute treatment whilst your friends are on hand to help with the little one. Perfect! NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE DUE TO COVID-19
