Reflexology typically involves applying pressure to areas on the feet known as reflex points. These reflex points correspond to different areas in the body. By working on these points you can help the body to restore balance and promote a general state of well being. Particularly beneficial in treating stress related disorders.

It may also include massage to other areas of the body such as the lower back or the neck and shoulders. The aim is to increase metabolic function, ease discomfort, decrease bloating, improve breathing and improve the overall function of the digestive, reproductive and respiratory organs and their surrounding fascia. Please allow at least an hour for the first treatment, follow up treatments can be 30, 45 or 60 minutes. Not suitable during menstruation, pregnancy or if you are experiencing severe or undiagnosed pain.
Your first session will involve a brief but in depth consultation. This will involve some questions about your medical history, allergies, injuries or areas of concern. During the consultation there will also be time for you to ask questions and tell me what it is you are hoping to achieve. It's a good idea to arrive a few minutes early on your first visit to allow for this. Before the treatment you will be given a few minutes to undress to your underwear and make yourself comfortable under a sheet or towel.
Please be aware that missed appointments will still be charged unless a minimum of 24 hours notice is given.
