Reflexology is a non-intrusive complimentary therapy, based on the principle that all the organs and structures of the human body can be mapped out on the feet and hands.
If illness or imbalance occurs, congestion can display in these areas, or 'reflexes'. During a reflexology session these reflexes can then be worked upon with the aim of relieving congestion and restoring balance.
Using a holistic approach reflexology focuses on the body as a whole, with the goal of leaving it in a better position to function as it should promoting relaxation and calmness along with a better sense of wellbeing.
Reflexology can help in a number of ways with most people taking benefit from regular treatments. Usually client's sense a reduction in tension and stress, improved mood and sleep, increased energy with an overall increased sense of wellbeing.
So many people put up with long term conditions that are not always resolved through conventional medicine alone, turning to complementary therapies such as Reflexology to help; therefore for some, treatments may support or help a person living with a condition alongside conventional medical care given.
I am a fully qualified and insured, member of the Association of Reflexologist and the Complimentary Natural Healthcare Council. I received my Diploma in Reflexology (with distinction) from the Devon School of Reflexology.
Since qualifying, I have undertaken further training in Advance Hand Reflexology, taught by the renowned practitioner and author of ‘The Reflexology Bible’ Lousie Keet, and later this year I will continue my training with the award winning Sally Kay, a pioneer and researcher into Reflexology and its benefits to sufferers of Lymphoedema and auto-immune diseases.
