Really Relaxing Reflexology
Discover how this gentle, hands-on holistic treatment can help to support your health and wellbeing
What Is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a gentle non-invasive complementary therapy that promotes deep relaxation and wellbeing. It is based on the principle that there are points on the feet, hands and face that correspond to organs, structures and systems of the body. By applying pressure to these points know as 'reflexes', this therapy encourages the body to restore homeostasis and bring about balance to benefit your physical body as well as your emotions. The reflexologist uses thumb and finger techniques of varying pressure and the treatment is performed fully clothed with the exception of removing socks and shoes. Reflexology is a holistic therapy and aims to bring balance to the mind, body and soul.
How Can Reflexology Help You?
A major effect of reflexology is that it is deeply relaxing. And when your body truly relaxes it allows tension to be released and pain to be lessened. Your sense of wellbeing can increase, your mood become enhanced and your sleep improve. If you're affected by a chronic condition or suffer an acute complaint, reflexology may help you to deal with the symptoms.
Stress is a fact of life and also part of our normal functioning . However when not under control, stress is often at the root of many physical and emotional problems and therefore allowing the body to destress through reflexology can have huge benefits.
With this deep relaxation, reflexology may help you to reduce stress and anxiety, bring some relief to digestive issues, reduce feelings of pain, help to relieve respiratory issues, balance hormones, allow improved circulation and boost the immune system. Often people comment that they are able to think and process thoughts more clearly, ending a reflexology session with a greater sense of calm that can last for days.
Reflexology is a complementary therapy and not a substitute for medical treatment.
Reflexologists do not claim to diagnose, cure or prescribe and if you have any health concerns you should contact your GP.

“When our feet hurt we hurt all over”
I love reflexology
I have always enjoyed the feelings that the power of touch can evoke. The feeling of being cared for, nurtured, relaxed or restored and I have dipped in and out of therapeutic treatments over the years, sometimes to help me with an issue and other times just for the sheer relaxation of the moment. Life's ups and downs and twists and turns often placed demands on my physical and emotional wellbeing and I have used touch therapies to help me. And with my own family, I regularly used massage techniques as a way of connecting, relaxing and ending a week.
For many years, my husband and I ran our own community pharmacy and complementary health clinic. We were privileged to be able to help people with their health and wellbeing either through supporting traditional medical approaches or being able to offer complementary therapy. I never ceased to be amazed at the lovely feedback from people following treatments and especially reflexology, so I decided to train to be a reflexologist myself. I was amazed at the response from people which has inspired me and made my passion for reflexology grow and now I'm happy to have my own treatment room based in Great Ellingham, Norfolk.
Another passion of mine is wild swimming and I can often be found in a river or lake or bobbing around in the waves at the seaside, all weathers and all year long. But that's another story . . .
I have trained in Foot Reflexology, Hand Reflexology, Aromaflex, Hot Stones reflexology, Mindfulness Reflexology, Reflexology for Menopause, Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage (RLD) and I also hold a certificate in First Aid for Mental Health. Continual professional development is an important part of my practice and a requirement of my membership associations so I am constantly learning new techniques to enhance my treatments.
I am proud to be a qualified reflexologist registered with The Association of Reflexologists
and a member of The Federation Of Holistic Therapists
I look forward to meeting you soon
