Getting the lowdown, on Reflexology


I first trained as a reflexologist in July 2012, and ever since discovering all the amazing benefits of this treatment, I was completely hooked.


Reflexology is a deeply relaxing complementary therapy, that works by manipulating pressure points of the feet to stimulate energy pathways in the body. This is based on the theory, that your organs and different areas of your body are mirrored in your feet. Our reflex zones are linked to other parts of the body via our nerves, so by applying pressure and massaging techniques to these zones we can relieve and reduce imbalances within the rest of the body. A reflexology massage is a very powerful and relaxing treatment that heals the body, mind and soul.


This wonderful 60 minute session can help to manage stress, lift a low mood and calm busy minds. It can allow you to take a little time out from your daily life and also help you to achieve a better nights sleep. Stress, especially can have a massive effect on other systems in the body affecting the digestive system, nerves, mind and heart. Reflexology can turbo charge the healing process. During the treatment I will work on the energy pathways as a whole before focusing on the key areas of concern to help you achieve wellbeing.


What can I expect during a treatment?


The initial treatment will include a consultation which will be sent out prior to attending to enable me to gain a detailed knowledge of your medical history and your lifestyle. It will enable me to build a greater understanding and to completely ensure the treatment is bespoke to your specific needs.


No need to undress for the treatment, you just need to remove your shoes and socks.

For your reflexology session, you will be settled comfortably on the massage couch. The lights will be dimmed with the gentle flicker of candles, the scent of calming essential oils filling the room and soft relaxing music will be playing.


The treatment will begin with a warming foot cleanse with heated mitts infused in peppermint essential oil. Then relaxation techniques followed by the main reflexology routine using various techniques and pressure points to work over the foot as a whole. I will be focusing on specific areas to bring the body in a state of balance.


I am not a doctor and can not claim to cure, prescribe or diagnose, but by working holistically I can help bring about balance to the whole body that could improve health and well being.
