Hello, I am Ali Rookes and am an experienced and professionally trained reflexologist, hypnotherapist and Reiki Master/spiritual healer.
I run my own practice (Amaya Wellbeing) in a beautiful parkland setting at Caldecott Hall Country Park on the edge of Fritton, with easy access from Norwich, Gt Yarmouth, Gorleston, Lowestoft and Beccles.
I also run weekly sessions in the idyllic village of Congham, near Sandringham in West Norfolk.
I trained with Louise Keet at the London School of Reflexology and am a full member of the AoR and registered with the CHNC.
Reflexology opened me to the world of healing - mind, body and spirit. I just love it, I love being able to make people feel better. To see a client totally relax and going into the experience and being completely blown away is magical. ‘Walking on air’ is how many describe how they are feeling afterwards. It is so rewarding and I count my blessings every day to be doing what I love.
HOW REFLEXOLOGY WORKS
There are several theories as to how reflexology works. One of the leading theories is that it works with the central nervous system. According to the theory, the reflexologist's application of pressure to the feet sends a calming message from the peripheral nerves in these extremities to the central nervous system, which in turn signals the body to adjust the tension level. This enhances overall relaxation, brings internal organs and their systems into a state of optimum functioning, and increases blood supply (which brings additional oxygen and nutrients to cells and enhances waste removal). It positively affects the circulatory, respiratory, endocrine, immune, and neuropeptide systems in the body.
Yet another theory holds that there is a "vital energy" in the human body. If stress is not addressed, it leads to congestion of energy, which in turn causes bodily inefficiencies, which can lead to illness. According to this theory, reflexology helps keep the energy flowing.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A TREATMENT?
During your reflexology treatment I will:
Detect energy blockages and by massaging the reflex points :
Stimulate the body’s natural healing processes
Detoxify the body
and work any underlying problems, both physical and emotional.
You will be amazed by what the feet can tell!
Reflexology is a safe and natural holistic therapy which treats the body, mind and spirit. It is a wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable therapy, which can be used alongside existing therapies and treatments and is suitable for absolutely everyone.
Your reflexology foot massage will leave you feeling happier, healthier and better equipped to cope with day to day strains and stresses.
WHAT CAN REFLEXOLOGY TREAT?
By promoting the body’s natural healing process, reflexology can help with almost all conditions and problems. Below are just a few examples of things that a reflexology treatment, or series of treatments, can improve.
Anxiety and Stress
Back and neck pain
Chronic illnesses – diabetes, MS
Digestive disorders and constipation
Hormonal imbalances (eg PCOS and symptoms of menopause)
Migraine and headaches
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained in Reflexology at the London School of Reflexology with the renowned Louise Keet. I have done post-graduate training with Tony Porter (ART), Touchpoint Denmark, Jan Williamson, Mauricio Kruchik (from Israel), and several other amazing tutors.
Through doing energy work with reflexology, I discovered my healing ability and I trained in Usui Reiki (with Bury St Edmunds Reiki) to the Master/Teacher level and then went on to train as a healer with Harry Edwards College.
