Fay Preston Complementary Health Practitioner
Leigh On Sea
Hello and welcome,
What draws you to looking for Complementary Healthcare? How are you feeling?
I am genuinely interested in your wellbeing and how I may be able to help you.
I'm Fay and I'm a working mum, I began my holisitc pathway from an early age. I always had intuitive feelings about people and situations which has developed over the years. I began by training as a spiritual healer. This progressed onto Reiki and learning Reflexology among other complementary treatments. I now specialise in Maternity & Fertility Reflexology.
As far as I am aware, I am one of the only Complementary Health Practitioners to offer a truly holistic approach whereby I combine treatments to ensure you get the maximum benefits. Using my intuition I am drawn to combining therapies during your session which maximises your time to relax and truly unwind as well as enhancing the results that an individual therapy alone can bring.
I love the work that I do and I feel I can offer you a holistic approach as well as giving you the time to help ensure you get the maximum benefits from your treatments and or training with me.
Pronounced 'ray' 'key' is a very gentle form of healing using energy. As well as this, it can be the start of a very nurturing journey for those who embrace it into their lives. Reiki itself can be a wonderful experience and it may aid physical healing, clear mental and emotional blockages and even help you to 'see things in a different light'.
Reiki works with your body’s own energy systems, also known as ‘chakras’. The energy is drawn down through the therapist and into the client’s body by the laying on of hands. The principles are simple, what do you do when you have a pain? You instinctively place your hands on this area or hold the place where you can feel pain to somehow alleviate it. Just as a mother would tenderly give comfort to her child and offer that unconditional love and healing, so can Reiki. Our bodies are wonderful instruments and they have the ability to self heal. Reiki may kickstart or speed up this process therefore healing quicker.
During my experience Reiki can be used to great effect in many ways. It appears to be especially beneficial in clearing and releasing emotional upset and blockages in turn balancing the emotions. During treatments my clients have reported feeling warmth, tingling, seeing colours, feeling overwhelming love and deep relaxation.
When working with my clients I am always supportive and sensitive as to how a Reiki treatment may affect them. As Reiki has no known contraindications it is an excellent treatment to those of all ages and with medical conditions.
Since working as a Reflexologist I have been presented with many different illnesses and emotional traumas. This has taught me that no two treatments can be the same because we each have different needs. With this in mind, my treatments are tailored to suit you and to offer you the best chance in getting the maximum benefits that Reflexology has to offer. Reflexology is not a 'quick fix' treatment but when used consistently can have very positive results. Over time I have worked with conditions such as psoriasis, stress and depression, back pain, sinus problems, digestive disorders, anxiety, overactive and underactive thyroid, diabetes, PCOS and many other conditions.
Reflexology believes the feet are a map of our body and its systems. Reflexology is said to work by applying pressure to specific points called 'reflexes' on the feet or hands. In doing this the body’s organs, glands and structures are stimulated helping to clear blockages and imbalances and restore the energy flow to the whole body.
During Pregnancy our bodies are far more sensitive than normal. Many hormonal and physical changes are taking place which can put great strain on the body and its systems. Having a baby is a wonderful event and very special time for a mum to be, so feeling positive and well is a major factor in how you feel about yourself and the pending birth. Often mums to be are worried and anxious about the upcoming change in lifestyle and wonder 'what will it be like?' 'will I be able to cope?'. Labour is a natural process but the thought of it can bring apprehension and anxiousness. However, this is a very small part to the start of your baby's new life and Reflexology is there is help you during pregnancy and in the lead up to labour. I have been trained by the recently retired Val Groome who had built her knowledge and experience in Maternity & Fertility Reflexology over a period of almost 15 years. I am proud to say I am Val's reccomended Maternity & Fertility Reflexologist in the local area.
Reflexology during pregnancy is a very relaxing treatment. I am here to work with you and to relax you as much as possible. Reflexology may help with the minor ailments of pregnancy such as back ache, insomnia, fatigue, pelvic ache, symphysis pubis, headaches and morning sickness. Pregnancy is an emotional time and some women may feel more vulnerable. During a treatment can be a good time for you to discuss any worries or anxieties you may have pending the birth of your baby. Most importantly Reflexology is aimed to be supportive of you as a mum to be and to assist your body in giving the best conditions in which your baby can grow and flourish.
It is not uncommon for women to go beyond the 40 week gestation period. This can create anxiety as often we get fed up and I am asked to help 'get things going'. A baby will let you know when it is ready and that is very important. As a reflexologist and dealing with pregnancy, I am treating you as an expectant mother and not your baby. At 10 days or more post labour your midwife may discuss a medical induction process to start and accelerate labour. In this instance you may be looking to try Reflexology as an alternative to help induce labour. Please understand that I will only do this if you and your feet (your body) show me that you are ready along with the approval of your midwife or health professional.

"I first visited Fay in September 2011 when I was 5 months pregnant for Pregnancy Reflexology. I decided to try the Holistic approach to my second birth after a traumatic first birth.I instantly felt relaxed and welcomed into Fay's home and found her completely approachable and professional at all times.Fay's "wonder hands" certainly worked their magic as my little one arrived a day ahead of schedule following a visit to Fay.I can't recommend her highly enough and already have a friend of mine visiting her for pregnancy reflexology."

Fertility ReflexologySub Fertility is a term given to couples whom have not conceived after one year of unprotected intercourse. It may also include couples whom have previously conceived but have difficulties in conceiving again. Reflexology during this time can show great benefit in taking the stress out of the situation by giving you time to relax and unwind. As Reflexology works by applying pressure to the systems in the body, it can bring you into a more balance state and balance your hormonal system.
Reflexology can be a supportive aid during fertility treatments such as IVF & IUI and it may reduce stress and help your body prepare for the increase in hormones.
