You will start with a relaxing, warm eucalyptus and tea tree foot soak whilst we talk through your general health and lifestyle.
You will then get cosy and comfortable on the massage table so I can begin a deeply relaxing foot massage. I will then move on to working specific reflex (or pressure) points on both your feet using a unique thumb and finger massage following your personalised treatment plan. The reflexology treatment has the benefit of working your whole body on the inside as well as the outside. This enables us to help regulate your hormones, boost your circulatory system and relax your nervous system and address any issues with digestion, immune system or stress and anxiety.
There may be areas of tenderness on your feet which reflect imbalances and congestion in the flow of energy in the body. I will work with a specific technique to work out these imbalances and help stimulate the body’s own natural self healing ability to restore balance and equilibrium in your body.
A treatment takes 1 hour and you will have the opportunity to have a herbal tea or water afterwards whilst you take your time to rest after the treatment.
After the treatment, it is very likely you will feel extremely relaxed. Whilst in this state, your body will be detoxing and can start to repair, renew and rejuvenate so it is important to follow my aftercare advice to get the best out of the treatment:
- Drink plenty of water to help hydrate the body and aid the flushing of toxins from the body
- Take it easy for the rest of the day - listen to your body!
- Avoid stimulants such as tea, coffee and alcohol, they will reduce the effectiveness of the treatment
- Eat light meals for the rest of the day
- Make a note of any reactions you experience to let me know at the next appointment
Occasionally when the body begins eliminating toxins and regulating hormones, some people may experience cold like symptoms, feel mildly nauseous or more emotional. This is an important sign the treatment is working and the body is in the process of detoxing and self healing. These reactions diminish within 24 - 48 hours.
Often the smallest thing can worry me, my sleep can become broken, my energy levels drop and I simply feel run down and tired.
I have always wanted to find a natural solution to cope better with stress and reduce the physical and mental effects it brings with it. Many years ago, I became very interested in the therapeutic benefits of ‘touch therapies’ such as massage to help ease stress and tension in muscles, and in 2001, I qualified as a Holistic Massage Therapist.
Not long after qualifying, I discovered Reflexology, and I was astounded at the ability that this therapy has to induce deep relaxation for not just the body but the mind as well. After a few treatments I realised I had now found the perfect natural therapy to help me re-balance myself in order to keep my mind and body performing in the best way possible. Through Reflexology I saw my sleep improve, my immune system get stronger, and my energy levels increase. It soon became my ‘go to’ treatment to maintain good mental and physical well being in my day to day life.
I couldn’t wait to find out how it worked…
I learnt that Reflexology uses very specific thumb and finger techniques on your feet to work the whole body both inside and out. It has the ability to encourage a busy mind to switch off, which then allows the body to rest, re-charge and re-new.
Now as a qualified Reflexologist with a Level 3 Diploma (Federation of Holistic Therapists) from the Brighton School of Massage, I am here to help you to take time out and ‘reboot’ yourself.
With Reflexology you can help your mind and body find a new balance so you can thrive in your daily life and not just survive.
