I am based just off the A34 between Cannock and Stafford, providing Bowen Therapy, Reflexology and Reproductive Reflexology, Indian Head Massage, Eastern Facial Massage and Ear Candling.
I have been practicing the Bowen Technique for 7 years. It is a very gentle therapy using thumbs and fingers on precise points of the body. These moves stimulate the muscles and soft tissue helping to relieve tension. The experience of a treatment is gentle, subtle and relaxing. Clients report the experience of pain relief, improvement of function and recovery of energy, as well as an improved feeling of relaxation and wellbeing. The treatment is suitable for all ages - babies through to the elderly. Please visit my website to view a video on how Bowen has benefited children and their mothers.
Having received Reflexology myself for many years, I qualified in 2007. It is a popular, relaxing holistic treatment and is a method of activating the healing powers of the body. Reflex points on the soles, tops and sides of the feet connect to corresponding areas throughout the body. The aim is to balance the body naturally and correct any imbalances. It is only necessary to remove shoes and socks for the treatment which can help to relieve anxiety and tension, encourage relaxation, improve mood and aid sleep, though some people use it to help them cope with more specific health challenges. Reflexology is often used alongside conventional care in hospices, hospitals and other healthcare settings, to help support patients with a variety of conditions.
In addition, reproductive reflexology has been used to assist in regulating the menstrual cycle, aiding relaxation, and generally supporting couples trying to conceive. I trained with Barbara Scott, Seren Natural Fertility and further details can be found on their website
