Sarah Edwards MAR
My name is Sarah Edwards and I am a fully qualified and insured Mobile Reflexologist. (MAR)
I studied reflexology for one year at the Oxford School of Reflexology in 2007; this course covered all aspects of reflexology and also included anatomy, physiology and education on other holistic therapies. Since then I have ran my own business in between having two children. I also specialise in maternity, fertility and spinal reflexology. I am also a fully qualified as a Hot Stone Reflexologist.
What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a complementary therapy that involves the application of pressure to specific points, known as reflexes, on the feet to encourage the body to heal from within. The therapy is based on the principle that the feet contain 'mini-maps' of the whole body and that by applying pressure using the fingers or thumbs a reflexologist can have a positive effect on the corresponding parts of the body.
Reflexology is a holistic therapy and treats the person as a whole rather than just focusing on a set of symptoms. Holistic therapies take the emotional and spiritual being into account as well as the physical.
How does it benefit you?
A reflexology treatment can be effective in eliminating toxins, improving circulation, reducing stress and inducing deep relaxation. It has also been shown to be effective for:
- Back pain
- Hormonal imbalances (PMT )
- Sleep and Digestive disorders
Reflexology is very beneficial in pregnancy, during this time it helps mothers-to-be cope with morning sickness, back ache, swollen ankles and other inconveniences of pregnancy. Many mothers report easier labour and birthing when they have had reflexology treatments during their pregnancy.
Hot Stone Reflexology
This truly indulgent feeling treatment, using various massage techniques and warm stones, relaxes the body at its deepest level and is effective in creating harmony and balance. The subtle energies of stones introduced into the treatment calm the senses, relax muscle tension and promote a meditative state.
I am a mobile therapist so you can have your treatment in the comfort of your own home I have all the equipment needed for the treatment, chair, music etc. The first consultation will be one hour. A medical and lifestyle questionnaire will be taken and then the treatment will be 45 mins. Depending on each client it is usually recommended that a treatment is given every 4 weeks.
