Training, qualifications & experience
Reflexology is a deeply relaxing and energising holistic therapy which treats the whole person rather than just the symptoms. Reflexology is based on the principle that the body is divided into ten vertical zones ending in the fingers and toes. The body is often in a state of imbalance, particularly after illness, injury or periods of stress and these episodes can lead to the vital energy pathways becoming blocked, preventing the body from functioning effectively. The gentle treatments, focusing on the corresponding reflexes in the feet, may alleviate a variety of symptoms.
In 2014 Sam added Hopi ear candling (Thermal Auricular Therapy) to her portfolio of treatments. Hopi ear candles are hollow tubes made of cotton which are soaked in beeswax, honey and herbs. When lit, the candles act like a chimney, causing the warm air inside it to rise and creating a vacuum at the bottom: this vacuum gently stimulates the ear, facilitating the removal of excess wax and impurities.
