Covid-19 - Moving Forward
For the safety of clients and myself during the Covid-19 pandemic, I have followed the guidance of the UK Government and The Association of Reflexologists. Now that all legal restrictions have been lifted, some hygiene measures will remain such as room ventilation, the availability of hand sanitiser and, obviously, cleaning.
It is optional if you wish to wear a face covering to your appointment. If you would prefer me to also wear a mask then I am happy to do so. Please bring your own blanket to your reflexology session for extra warmth and comfort and a bottle of water to drink afterwards.
Your Reflexology Experience
First Reflexology Discovery Session
Your first visit will begin with a Discovery Session. A comprehensive medical and lifestyle questionnaire is completed and we will discuss your goals that you would like reflexology to help with. You will then be able to relax and have a full reflexology treatment. I will note down any areas of imbalance which, along with the findings from your consultation, will enable me to build a personal, holistic treatment plan for your following treatments.
Subsequent Reflexology Sessions
We will begin with a brief discussion about your progress since your last visit, or any additional concerns or health issues you may have. I will then adapt your treatment plan as necessary. I may deliver your treatment on the feet, hands or ears, or a combination of each, as I work synergistically to give the most effective treatment for your presenting health issues. I may also offer aftercare advice and show you how to maximise your treatment by working the reflexes on your hands at home.
Standard reflexology practice, stimulating reflexes on the foot to connect with organs and systems to maintain homeostasis in the body.
As effective as working on the feet. It can be used if there is a foot injury or deformity. I will often use hand reflexology as part of a synergistic treatment, for workshops and to give clients ‘homework’.
Reflexology Lymph Drainage
RLD is an award winning reflexology technique which focuses on stimulating the lymphatic reflexes on the feet. The aim is to cause an effect on the lymphatic system in the body. It is a unique sequence that has been researched and developed by Sally Kay.
Reflexology for Mental Health
The physical, mental and emotional benefits of reflexology make it particularly helpful for mental health related issues. Chi/energy balancing techniques, based upon Traditional Chinese Medicine, provide extra support either as a stand-alone treatment or used alongside standard reflexology.
Auricular (ear) reflexology can be used for most disorders and is particularly effective for pain relief and joint stiffness. Medicinal ear seeds (from the vaccaria plant) are used to reinforce a treatment between sessions and to provide a self-help option.
Fertility and Maternity Care
Reflexology techniques for balancing the endocrine and reproductive systems. It provides support for couples experiencing fertility problems and pre and postnatal care.
Limbic reflexology focuses on emotional responses and our response to the experience of pain. A specialist technique working reflex areas on the feet corresponding to the structures of the brain, largely responsible for filtering and responding to information from our external, and internal world.
Reflexology for Palliative Care
Reflexology can help with both the emotional and physical consequences of dealing with life-threatening illness. It can help to improve well-being, relieve anxiety and can often reduce side-effects of some medical treatments.
Our bodies and minds are inextricably linked. NEPIP focuses on the nervous, endocrine, immune and limbic systems of the body and how the psychology of the mind adversely affects health and resistance to disease.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), meridians are perceived to be a network of pathways conveying energy and blood (life force) around the body. Acupoints along the meridians are used in reflexology. The results of a treatment can be enhanced by incorporating meridian channels.
