Reflexology is a relaxing, non-invasive complementary therapy. Reflexology aims to support clients through increased relaxation (many clients are so relaxed they drop off to sleep), tension release, improved sleep patterns, improved mood and an increased feeling of well being.
Reflexology has its roots in ancient times. There is even pictoral evidence from ancient Egypt of hand and foot reflexology being practised! The hyrogliphics have been translated – the ‘client’ saying something to the affect of, “Don’t hurt me!” The practitioner replying to the affect, “I will act so that you praise me!”
Reflexology does not aim to diagnose or cure-rather it supports the client holistically in order to boost the body’s own incredible balancing systems. Reflexology should not be used in place of medical care. Always consult your GP/health professional for medical advice/attention.
What can I expect from a treatment?
The first time we meet we will have a full consultation. This chat will allow you to inform me of your history and ask any questions before the main session. It will also facilitate a thorough treatment plan and outcomes. You can be assured of complete confidentiality and that your data will be kept in accordance with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2018.
You will be asked to remove socks and shoes and be made comfortable in either a reclining chair or therapy couch. Your session is bespoke to you so your choice of scent (candle or essential oil diffuser) and music can also be discussed. In autumn & winter extra 100% natural beeswax candles (sourced from Dorset) can be lit and a heated blanket can be added to your session to really enhance relaxation. In warm weather your session can take place outside in the private garden under a canopy if you wish.
A full reflexology sequence will be given allowing you time to relax and unwind. At the end of the session you will have time to further relax in the recliner/therapy couch, you will be offered water and feedback will be given.
