Everybody holds the key to their own healing, but sometimes the body needs a little help. That’s where my services come in. As an experienced Reflexologist, I will work with you to restore your balance and find your centre.
Reflexology is a deeply relaxing treatment for both the body and the mind. It can aid sleep, restore energy levels, improve circulation, relieve stress and tension, lift mood, boost the immune system and promote an overall sense of well-being.
Stress can affect how a person feels emotionally and physically. Not all stress is necessarily bad for you. It is normal for people to experience stress in their everyday lives and in many instances stress helps us to get going and complete tasks. However, chronic or long term stress is now known to be a major risk factor in developing health issues, ranging from sleep problems to cardiovascular diseases. It is therefore better to prevent stress and relieve stress before it become a major health issue.
Reflexology can really help reduce stress and aid recovery from stress-related conditions. When the body relaxes and rebalances it begins to heal itself.

From the onset of puberty to the menopause and beyond, women will experience huge changes in their bodies due to the influences of hormones. These are totally natural processes, but some women can develop hormone-related problems such as painful or heavy periods, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), endometriosis or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) as well as menopausal symptoms. In some women, these symptoms can be severe and really affect their quality of life. Reflexology aims to help the body to balance the hormones and promote deep relaxation.

Happy Baby Clinic
Babies often have common ailments such as colic, reflux and constipation in their first few months. Reflexology is a natural, safe and enjoyable option to help alleviate such ailments. The Happy Baby Clinic is a one hour session tailored to suit your baby's needs, whether that ailment is colic, reflux, constipation, teething, difficulty in settling or birth trauma, there are techniques that can help.
A short treatment of 10-20 minutes can be enough for most babies (depending on age/ailment) which gives plenty of time to teach the parent/caregiver the basic reflexology techniques best suited to use with their baby at home. For a baby with colic, reflux etc. one 15 minute treatment may not be enough. They will need short and regular treatments every day to alleviate the symptoms. This is why learning the routines to continue the treatments at home with your baby is ideal.
