About me

Reflexology is a gentle holistic therapy. I work on either the hands or feet to prompt the body’s self-healing mechanisms. The structures of the body are mapped out the feet and hands, so when I apply gentle pressure to specific points, this brings about a response within the organs and systems of the body. A full session lasts in the region of an hour and includes massage of the hands or feet, which creates a sense of calmness and relaxation.

Hot stone foot reflexology and Kansa Vatki foot massage (use of Indian bowl) are also available and provided as longer sessions. A combination of either hot and cold stones or the kansa Vatki Indian bowl are used alongside reflexology thumb and finger techniques and applied to the feet and legs. Warmth from the stones or bowl assists the release of tension in the muscles and connective tissues. The heat also expands the capillaries and massage on the legs helps circulation. The therapy promotes general relaxation, a sense of well-being and in turn can help reduce stress.

Reflexology is useful for a wide range of conditions, but please consult your medical practitioner first if you have an ongoing medical condition or untreated symptoms.

Please contact me so we can discuss your requirements in more detail.
