Frequently asked questions

What is Reflexology?


Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different organs, glands and structures within the body. Reflexology is believed to help areas of tension and encourage energy to flow more freely throughout the body. Reflexology is suitable for all ages and stages of life and can bring relief to a wide range of both acute and chronic conditions as well as working more preventatively in helping the body to maintain overall health and well-being.




What kind of things can Reflexology help with ?


Specific conditions which are known to benefit from reflexology include: Allergies, Anxiety and Stress related issues, Asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis and other respiratory problems, Back pain and sciatica, Chronic Fatigue and general exhaustion, Digestive disorders including irritable bowel, colitis, gastritis and constipation, Headaches, Hormonal imbalances Immune disorders, Infertility, Lymphoedema, Menopausal symptoms, Menstrual irregularities including pain levels and PMT, Migraine, Pregnancy, Tonsillitis and Urinary problems More generally reflexology helps to: Reduce stress, Promote relaxation, Increase vitality, Improve circulation, Eliminate toxins Reduce pain levels and Strengthen the immune system.




How does it work?


It involves me applying pressure to specific areas in the hands, feet, or ears that affect corresponding reflex areas of the body. By focusing on specific reflex points that map out areas of your body, I will stimulate healing in the associated organs and glands leaving your body feeling deeply relaxed and replenished.




How can it help?


Reflexology is very relaxing and provides an excellent way of releasing stress and tension. It may also help with conditions including arthritis, migraine, insomnia, PMT, digestive and respiratory problems. Its very nature makes it particularly valuable in aiding recovery after illness, operations and fractures, while being suitable for people of all ages.

What will happen during my first session?


Your 1st session would be an “Investigatory”session. It would start with a detailed consultation, then your treatment would be begin. I would lie you back in the chair and begin to work on your feet – this is an opportunity for you to relax and listen to your body. I will work your feet using different pressures and different techniques that I have been trained to use. I will pay extra attention to any out of balance reflexes. After the session we will discuss my findings and work together to help you further – whether that be me showing you how to perform reflexology on your hands, suggested reading for you or signposting you to a different complementary therapist – I will then write up my findings and create a bespoke treatment plan for you should you wish further reflexology treatments.




Can I come for a one off treatment?


Yes, you can book for a one off treatment. Your first session will last 90 minutes. This allows 30 minutes for a consultation and 60 minutes for a thorough investigation session.




How much is a session?


A reflexology session is £45.00 with the exception of Reproductive Reflexology, which is £50 per session.




I don’t like my feet being touched?


There is nothing not to love about a reflexology treatment – pressure and technique are adapted to suit each client. I am also trained to work hands and ears which can both have the same benefits as foot reflexology.




What methods of Payment do you take?


You can pay by cash, credit card and debit card.
