Reflexology in Portishead and the surrounding area
Reflexology is a non-intrusive complimentary therapy, based on the principle that all of the organs and structures of the human body can be mapped out on the feet and hands. By stimulating specific points or 'reflexes' the aim is to restore balance and improve function of the corresponding part of the body.
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 living with a condition alongside conventional medical care given.
I have always had an interest in Complimentary therapies and this peaked in 2013 when I was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition. This led me to look into alternative options that could help with my condition and improve my overall wellbeing. It also changed my interest into a new and motivating career path.
I am a fully qualified and insured, a member of the Association of Reflexologist and the Complimentary Natural Healthcare Council.
