Reflexology and Reiki Specialist.
I am a fully qualified and insured Reflexologist with 10 years experience. I run an established Reiki/Reflexology business in the Scunthorpe and Doncaster areas. I mainly work from my home in Belton, near Scunthorpe but for those people who are unable to travel to me, I also offer mobile treatments within the local area.
My Reflexology sessions include a unique combination of Lymph drainage, Acupressure and Reiki. Each treatment is tailor made to suit your individual needs. I am just as happy to offer one off relaxation sessions as a complete course of treatment. If the latter is advised, progress is regularly assessed and appropriate adaptations are made as and when necessary. Some clients have been with me since I first set up practice nearly eleven years ago. I think this may well be largely due to the fact that I genuinely care about the people I work with and I will always look to find ways of giving help and support to the best of my ability.
Reflexology is a gentle therapy where the reflex areas of the feet are massaged using a variety of pressure techniques. This stimulates the bodies own healing mechanisms and is excellent for promoting relaxation, releasing tension, improving sleep patterns, improving mood and increasing well being, and as a result can be a beneficial support to those experiencing illness.
Finding the root cause
It is possible to find out where the problem areas are in the body by working the feet. Once these areas are located during the initial exploratory session, regular treatments can ease many physical problems and bring pain relief, as well as providing emotional support for those suffering from depression or stress.
Reflexology is free of the side effects found in many medications and it doesn't just mask the symptoms. Rather, it looks to get to the heart of a problem in order to deal with the root cause. Reflexology balances the systems of the body, including Hormonal, Digestive, Circulatory and the Nervous System etc.
Reiki is a wonderful stand alone treatment or it can be used to complement and enhance Reflexology. It is a healing technique based on the principle that energy flows through the practitioners hands to the client's body in order to activate the natural healing processes. This restores physical and emotional well-being and can often bring a sense of peace and tranquillity. I use Reiki with Reflexology to a lesser or greater degree, depending upon the needs of the client.
Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD) focuses on stimulating the lymphatic reflexes on the feet. The aim is to cause an effect on the lymphatic system of the body such as reduce the swelling of Lymphoedema, which often develops following treatment for breast cancer. Lymph Drainage Massage is used to treat conditions otherthan Lymphoedema and RLD may be used in a similar way.
The Lymph system interacts with the Cardiovascular, Digestive and Immune systems of the body.
Lymph Drainage may be useful with the following symptoms:
- Arthritis - Asthma - Eczema
- Chronic fatigue - Fibromyalgia - ME
- Sinus problems
- Migraines - Headaches
- Muscular Tension - Aches and Pains
- Premenstrual Syndrome
The Endocrine Sweep Endocrine Sweep helps to balance the Endocrine system and is particularly good for helping to ease P.M.S. and menopausal symptoms. During a reflexology session, the main emphasis is placed upon working the hormonal reflexes of the foot, which in turn helps to bring the body back into balance.
Hot Stone Reflexology
This is a luxurious reflexology session where you can experience a soothing foot and lower leg massage using heated basalt stones and warmed essential oils. Heated stones are also placed against the neck and shoulders and on the energy centres of the body for a nurturing and deeply relaxing experience.
Alan (Haxey) Nov 11th 2014
"I look forward to my reflexology with Suzanne. I have Parkinsons and find that my treatment is beneficial to my well-being. I discuss my treatment with Suzanne and we work out a plan that suits me.
The treatment is so good that I'm asleep in a matter of minutes. I feel relaxed and refreshed after each session. I try to have about 3 sessions each month.
Suzanne sometimes suggests I have Reiki if she feels my condition would benefit from the extra treatment".
Diane Parkin (Eastoft) January 2014
"After suffering for many years with Plantar Fasciitis (painful heels) and enduring countless steroid injections, my doctor told me my only option was surgery. Not wanting to go down this route I heard and read about Reflexology and decided to give it a go before turning to surgery.
It took Suzanne about four one hour sessions before I started to feel the results of what she was doing and about two monthes of one hourly sessons a week, to be pain free.
I still have my weekly sessions so Suzanne can keep on top of any twinges I might get, but mostly because its one hour of pure relaxation and 'me' time. I would highly recommend it to anyone".
John Porritt (Armthorpe, Doncaster) 24th April 2014
"For over four years I was struggling to walk, having sore feet and poor blood circulation.
My daughter looked Suzanne up on the internet and I got in touch and arranged a course of treatment.
It was the best thing I did. Soon my feet felt a lot better. Thank you."
Sarah (Crowle) 12th June 2013
"I was feeling very stressed, tired and mixed up.
I saw a leaflet about taster sessions for Reflexology and I thought I would try it out.
I didn't really know what it was. That was about 8/10 weeks ago and I have got to say I have not looked back since. I have had about 6 sessions and have loved every one of them.
Its a lovely, relaxing treatment.
Suzanne is very good and makes you feel like its made just for you.
I had PMS symptoms and was having trouble sleeping. Now I feel so relaxed.l
I still go about once a fortnight for one hour and I really look forward to it".
Christine, Barnby Dun, Doncaster: April 2014
"I have been completely bowled over by the results, with aches and pains alleviated and improvement in well being. If you have never tried Reflexology or Reiki, I recommend you do. I definitely know when I have not been. A non-pushy, excellent service".
Carol Green, Scawsby, Doncaster: April 2014
"I find Suzanne's sessions very relaxing. I never fail to go to sleep. The Reflexology eases all my aches and pains. It also soothes my eczema and helps my sleeping at night time. It also helps my body to learn to relax in a gentle way."
Janice Stones, Crowle, Scunthorpe: April 2014
"I cannot recommend enough. Knowledgeable, but also intuitive to the individual. Professional but also welcoming and warm. Excellent results for myself, both with physical pain and also mental well-being".
Mobile Therapist: sessions can be held in the comfort of your own home.
