I have over 20 years experience in General Practice working for the NHS where I ran Smoking Cessation Clinics, Health Check Clinics, assisted in the Womens Health Clinic and worked with the Admin Team on reception. I also volunteered at the Pilgrims Hospices offering Reflexology, Indian Head Massage and Reiki to palliative patients.
I started training in holistic therapies 6 years ago, initially practicing Reiki and later on Reflexology. On the first day of reflexology study, in plaster following a foot operation, I was shown a reflex point on my ear that corresponded to the surgery sight. When pressure was applied to this area there was an analgesic effect which meant that it was no longer necessary to take painkillers. I was only 3 days post surgery.
Applying a quiet and intuitive approach, I am committed to offering natural methods of self-care and wellbeing, I advise simple techniques which clients can take away and practice to assist the healing process between sessions.
More recently I trained at the London School of Reflexology with Ziggie Bergman and now offer the innovative Bergman Method Facial Reflexology.
Below is a link to a blog by the Federation of Holistic Therapists. It contains a short case study that I wrote on how I support a client with Parkinsons Disease, in contribution to an article in International Therapist Magazine about the benefits of Reflexology.
Finally I am no stranger to the menopause and am committed to helping women overcome hormonal changes and live a more balanced life through Reflexology.
I am so excited to offer this fabulous treatment to all my clients! Facial Reflexology has an extremely powerful impact on all body systems due to its close proximity to the brain and central nervous system. Additionally, it alleviates jaw tightness and pain, sinus congestion, migraines and stress. Added to this the stimulation to the muscles and blood vessels in the face gives a lovely healthy glow as it increases blood flow. Oh...and it feels absolutely amazing!
Your feet are a reflection of your whole body and can be read as a map, allowing the therapist to identify congested areas and work with you to bring about balance and well-being throughout all body systems, promoting self-healing and relaxation. Received regularly, reflexology can help in the management of chronic conditions, hormonal imbalances such as menopause, stress and pain management and cancer.
Sitting in a chair, this treatment can be done over clothes or with a towel wrapped around the body using oils. It incorporates upper back, arms, shoulders, neck and scalp. intermingled throughout with hand and ear reflexology and finishing with facial pressure points. It promotes improved sleep and deep relaxation.
An ancient Japanese healing therapy which works with the energy systems of the body. Used often in palliative care, It is a deeply relaxing treatment, alleviating stress and tension and increasing energy levels. You, the client lay fully clothed on the treatment table while the practitioner lays hands on the body to stimulate its own healing ability.
This is a blissful 90 minutes that has you reclined in the chair, starting with 30 minutes of Stress Buster Facial Reflexology followed by an hour of Foot Reflexology. Reports of clients feeling like they are floating on clouds following this treatment and having improved sleep have made this my most popular treatment. Particularly if you have symptoms of hormone imbalance such as perimenopause or premenstrual tension.
Holistic Therapy, rather than addressing a specific symptom, works with the 'whole person' - mind, body and spirit.
It works in addition to or alternatively to conventional medical treatment, is natural, non-invasive and suitable for everybody. Bringing about balance throughout the whole person, it can aid relaxation for conditions such as anxiety, stress and muscle tension and relieve pain and discomfort.. It is important to find a suitable therapist who you feel comfortable with, and who takes time to discuss any health concerns during an initial health consultation, reviewing regularly to adapt to changes.
I am committed to working with my clients in encouraging self-care. We spend time together discussing simple methods using hand and ear reflexology which can be practiced independently at home between sessions.
My mission is to provide holistic care in a safe, confidential and relaxed environment. Together we can nurture a calm, serene and non-judgmental space in which you can take time to re-centre, re-balance and relax.
I am a vegan and an animal lover therefore all the products used in your treatments are vegan. I request that you provide a towel and cloths which can be added to your normal wash to prevent the use of wipes and couch roll, A hot cloth foot wash is a particularly pleasant start to your treatment too!
It can often take a few sessions to address a particular issue to bring about balance, and this package helps to budget for that.
Alternatively, having paid ahead for 4 sessions you can book them in at your convenience!
It always makes me smile when my clients take up this offer! Inevitably I have one person on the treatment bed receiving a treatment while the other is on the sofa and they are both fast asleep! It's a very relaxing time. For all of us......
This gives a lovely opportunity for a relaxing catch-up at home with your friends while you all take in turns to have a 30 minute treatment of your choice. You can book in advance with a deposit and all you have to worry about are the nibbles!
