The heart of my approach is to encourage a gentle self-awareness; of breath and body. From here you can receive massage in a way which makes a real difference to patterns of stress and discomfort. I work intuitively and with practical skill combining relaxing massage strokes with deep tissue techniques, energising stretches and holds in ways appropriate to your individual needs.
Reflexology is a holistic healthcare system which treats the whole body through the feet and sometimes hands. It can be a gently effective way of relaxing and balancing mind and body. It can be a great way to encourage your body’s natural healing mechanisms.
I originally trained in the Ingham Method of Reflexology with the International institute of Reflexology. This method was developed by Eunice Ingham a pioneer Physiotherapist in the US in the 1930s. I use this as the basis of most of the treatments I give. It involves working specific areas on feet and/or hands with a pressure that feels right for you. This stimulates reflex pathways to all the body’s systems encouraging better circulation, and improved health and well-being.
Reflexology is known to reduce stress and tension and promote relaxation. Reducing stress in turn may help with other stress related physical and emotional symptoms such as sleep problems, headaches, anxiety, general aches and pains and digestive issues.
In 2014 I completed a training to support couples experiencing fertility issues with Seren Natural Fertility and am currently a member of the Association of Reproductive Reflexologists.
