Reflexology is a therapy dating back to Ancient Egypt, India and China, which is based on the theory that different reflex points situated on the feet and hands correspond with the different parts of the body.

During treatment, pressure is applied to the reflex points all over the feet and lower legs. Different massage techniques are also used to stimulate circulation and the lymphatic system, improving health and stimulating the immune system.

Reflexology is a relaxing and enjoyable treatment. When we allow ourselves this gift of deep relaxation, our bodies are able to balance and heal themselves.

Maternity Reflexology

Maternity Reflexology is a natural way to support you and your baby. I have completed advanced training for reflexology in pregnancy and offer support to women from conception through into labour. Reflexology aims to work on both the physical and emotional aspects of pregnancy and support you with your journey into parenthood.

The treatments that I offer are gentle and nurturing using different reflexology techniques throughout the stages of pregnancy.  During pregnancy, the body goes through many changes and imbalances often occur. Reflexology provides relaxation and an opportunity for the body to balance itself. A relaxed body and mind is more able to cope with the changes and demands of pregnancy.

Reflexology may provide relief from some of the common pregnancy difficulties such as nausea, fatigue, headaches, aches and pains and digestive problems. It is considered safe during pregnancy provided there are no complications. Please contact me for a free consultation to discuss this further.

Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD)

RLD is an award winning reflexology technique researched and developed by Sally Kay. The aim of RLD is to cause an effect on the body’s lymphatic system.

During RLD, specific points (reflexes) on the feet and hands are stimulated to encourage movement and drainage of the lymphatic fluid in the body.

Research has shown that it can help reduce lymphoedema. Lymphoedema is definded as tissue swelling due to failure of the lymphatic system.

This can be primary, for example a hereditary condition or secondary such as following and accident, injury, disease or specific treatment for example following cancer treatment and commonly breast cancer.

RLD may also be used to support clients with autoimmune and inflammatory conditions. These include Arthritis, asthma, eczema, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, ME, sinus problems, migraines, headaches, muscular tension, aches and pains and premenstrual symptoms.

During an RLD session, if you have swelling in your arms or legs, you have the option to be measured before and after the treatment. This can be helpful to show how effective the RLD session is.

As a reflexologist, I will not diagnose or claim to cure. Reflexology is suitable for all ages and can bring relief to many physical conditions and emotional difficulties.

During a treatment you will either lay on a massage couch or recline in a comfortable chair surrounded by pillows and snuggled under a blanket if required.

At your first appointment, a health and lifestyle questionnaire is completed. This consultation may be completed by telephone prior to your appointment. Please contact me if you would like to discuss reflexology further.
