Reflexology

Reflexology chart (dreamstime40895583)Reflexology is a wonderful treatment to help you de-stress, relax, feel brighter and sleep better; resulting in an improved sense of health and wellbeing. It involves the application of gentle pressure to specific reflex points on the feet and is suitable for all ages and many chronic health conditions. A typical treatment involves working all the reflexes on both feet. This allows your reflexologist to build up a picture of what is happening in your body and to encourage specific systems and organs to rebalance.

In addition to encouraging your body to enter a natural self-balancing state, my reflexology treatments are personalised to help you deal with your most pressing health concerns. I specialise in using reflexology to help with fertility, pregnancy, stress and anxiety, chronic health conditions and cancer.

Benefits of Reflexology

  • It’s perfect for when you feel overwhelmed or exhausted by life as it requires nothing from you other than removing your shoes and socks and lying back on a reclining chair.
  • It doesn’t need you to concentrate on calming your thoughts, or on slowing your breathing or releasing your muscular tension – you don’t need to do any of this because your clever body does all this naturally in response to my hands on your feet!
  • It allows your body to switch out of stress (sympathetic nervous system) and into relaxation (parasympathetic nervous system) – putting you back into a more optimal “thrive state” – that calm, centred place where you flow through your day, effortlessly batting off challenges and stresses.
  • It treats you the person, not just your disease/condition, so it complements and enhances conventional medical approaches and helps us cope better with symptoms and side effects.
  • It leaves you feeling calm and centred, instead of agitated and on edge, which as well as leading to an easier and more productive day, can in turn lead to a better night’s sleep. So then you wake up the following day feeling better about things and naturally make better decisions about your health and wellbeing, which in turn keeps you feeling happier, which encourages better sleep which means you wake up feeling better the following day and so on……..

Clients often report feeling calmer, clear-headed and more focused following a treatment. It can provide an increased sense of wellbeing, as well as leaving you feeling more relaxed or more energised depending on your individual requirements.

I just wanted to drop you a little note to say how much I enjoyed my reflexology session with you last week. For the rest of the day I felt amazing, very calm and totally relaxed… like I was floating on air. I’m still feeling those benefits now. Thanks again and I hope to visit you again in the near future for a top up.

I have personally found that reflexology helps many clients who have come to me for stress-related disorders, which may be affecting their sleep, mood or health. I also use my evidence-based scientific background and to complement the reflexology treatments by helping you to understand your own medical conditions and treatments. In this way I can provide a truly holistic experience.

Treatments include using one or more of the following techniques:

  • Traditional Reflexology – gentle pressure is applied to specific reflex points on the feet.
  • Precision Reflexology – the use of energy linking techniques between reflex points.
  • Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage (RLD) – using lymphatic drainage techniques on the feet to help those living with lymphoedema.
  • Structural Reflexology® – specialised techniques to release muscular, ligament and joint tension in the feet.
  • Thai Foot Massage – the use of traditional Thai massage techniques on the legs and fee, with a Thai wooden stick used on the reflex points.
  • Fertility Reflexology – additional hormone balance techniques on the feet to aid conception and provide support during IVF and other assisted reproduction techniques.
  • Maternity Reflexology – modified reflexology techniques to support and relax expectant mothers and help the mind and body prepare for birth.

The good news is that the first step to feeling better is simply to come along to my calm, peaceful Maidenhead treatment room and experience some deeply relaxing and de-stressing reflexology for yourself. The even better news is that this requires nothing more from you than simply removing your shoes and socks and lying back on a reclining chair.

And while we would all feel absolutely amazing if we were to have reflexology daily, you’ll be happy to hear that once your body remembers how to feel centred and balanced there are lots of simple ways we can get ourselves back into this state – which is why I love to show you simple and easy to remember self -treatments so that you really can have some reflexology in your life every single day!

Why not dip your toes in with a one-off treatment and see how it makes YOU feel and what benefits you experience. Find out more about my appointments and prices here.
