SO WHAT IS REFLEXOLOGY?
As a Women’s Health Reflexologist, I offer nurturing, facial and foot reflexology-based treatments to support your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. I have a particular interest in stress, anxiety, fertility and all stages of women’s reproductive & hormonal health and wellbeing and an absolute passion for this amazing therapy. I extended my service offering at the start of the year to include working with new mums, babies and children through my Tiny Toes Kettering Baby Reflexology & Massage classes – which is an absolute joy, and gives me an opportunity to continue supporting ladies I’ve supported through their fertility and/or pregnancy journey.
So, what exactly is Reflexology?
Reflexology works on the principle that all the systems within the body (i.e. all the major organs, glands etc.) have corresponding ‘reflex points’ elsewhere on the body (e.g. the feet, face, ears, hands). Reflexologists use maps showing these reflex points as guidelines, then use a range of techniques with their fingers, thumbs, knuckles (or tools such as hot stones or facial reflexology tools) to identify imbalances. We then ‘work’ these points aiming to release tension, rebalance, stimulate or sedate, helping to release any congestion and encourage to body to heal itself. Theories suggest that that this process is facilitated via nerve endings sending messages up to the brain and back out to the body, as well as unblocking energy channels (much like the principles applied in acupuncture).
By working with you, I help to facilitate change – supporting you to take charge of your own health and wellbeing and hope that my treatments become a catalyst for this change. How you respond to Reflexology is very individual. It’s impossible for me to predict whether a treatment will be beneficial for any symptoms you may be experiencing, or for a specific condition. I can say however that my reviews and testimonials do indicate that many of my clients have experienced health and wellbeing improvements.
So, my advice is simply to give it a try and see if you enjoy it, then take a decision from there as to whether you feel you might benefit from a course of treatments to give yourself a greater chance of achieving the health and wellbeing improvements you’re looking for. Why not pop along and see me at Ironstone this Saturday to find out, and maybe try a £10 taster treatment and experience this wonderful therapy for yourself? I’d love to meet you!
