Reflexology is a deeply relaxing and energising holistic therapy which treats the whole person rather than just the symptoms of disease. The body is often in a state of imbalance, particularly after illness, injury or periods of stress, with these vital energy pathways blocked, preventing the body from functioning effectively.
The aim of reflexology is to release any blockages and restore the free flow of energy and blood circulation to the whole body. To achieve this a specific massage technique is applied to reflex areas in the feet which correspond to tissues, organs and systems throughout the entire body. Stimulating these reflexes encourages the body to heal itself, restoring and maintaining natural equilibrium, as well as promoting relaxation and a general sense of well being.
Also have a keen interest in Pregnancy, and Fertility reflexology. Following a client from pregnancy through to having the baby, our body is under lots of strains and stresses, we also look at preparing the body for the birth.
Children usually respond extremely well to reflexology as they are often more open and responsive than adults. Children do not hold onto years and years of stress and bad habits and often only two or three reflexology sessions can be beneficial.
Reflexology has no boundaries in terms of age limit, so this makes it accessible to babies as well as teenagers. Reflexology may help not only with the physical functions but also the emotional changes that take place as we grow.
Baby's from 6 weeks old can have reflexology, and there is not upper age. It is truly for everyone whatever your age.

Massage therapy involves a range of techniques to manipulate the soft tissues and joints of the body. The purpose of massage therapy is to prevent, develop, maintain, rehabilitate physical function, and relieve painful symptons.
A common problem is that stressed muscles can block nutrients and oxygen from getting to where they need to go, and this will cause inflammation that allows toxins to build up in your muscle tissue. The inflammation and toxins contribute to pain and stress. Deep Tissue Massage breaks up and releases the built-up toxins by loosening the muscles. With the toxins released, blood and oxygen can circulate as they should through one’s body. Being properly hydrated before you go to your massage appointment and drinking plenty of water after one of these massages is highly recommended.
