Facial reflexology!

Exciting times! I am attending a facial reflexology course on Sunday and being taught by the master – Ziggy Bergman. This means I will now be able to offer an anti-aging facial using reflexology techniques on the face.

I actually cannot wait to be ‘practised on’ by other students on Sunday.

Will offer the treatment from 11th July.

Sports Therapy

I am excited to be branching into an area which interests me greatly.

I will be qualified in Sports Massage by July 2016 and plan to undertake further post qualification CPD and training throughout 2016.

As a keen runner (with a marathon running, kick-boxing husband) I cannot wait to get started!

Labour Induction using Reflexology

Babies will come when they’re ready.  No two ways about it.

But, Reflexology can help to balance the body, calm the mind and prepare the body for labour.

If a baby is overdue, it’ll also likely start contractions or Braxton Hicks.  But as ever, there is no guarantee. 

I have had two lovely ladies see me recently for induction sessions which I will only ever undertake when the pregnancy is at term.  Both were overdue (treatments tend to work better when overdue).

The first began having contractions the moment I hit the ‘sweet spot’ as I call it and they continued throughout the day but alas, they wore off by the next day.  Baby was finally born by elective C-section 4 days later.

The second lady experience tightenings half way into her treatment and felt a lot of activity going on in her uterus.  Her hind waters went about 10 minutes from the end of the session and her lovely baby was born a day later via a very speedy, text book delivery.

 

Trying to help others

So this week, I have been on the phone A LOT!

Not only do I want to help couples with infertility issues but I also love treating elderly people and would love to work with people with neurological issues.

Reflexology is extremely beneficial for the elderly, it can increase the circulation which is extremely important for elderly people. and can be very helpful for clients recovering from hip replacement surgery, knee replacement.     The techniques used can help reduce cholesterol levels, reduce and maintain lower blood pressure and assist with mobility.    It is also relaxing and provides an elderly person with an hour of pure relaxation, conversation and even a few laughs! 

In term of neurological conditions, For patients with little or no mobility, it is vital to ensure that three key systems – circulatory, eliminatory and immune – are all stimulated to encourage them to work as effectively as they can.   Reflexology can tap into these areas and treat any imbalance.

I have also worked with a client with MS and was able to improve MS-related bladder issues, muscle stiffness, and sensory symptoms.

Fingers crossed some of the organisations I’ve contacted today get back to me!   This feels like my ‘calling in life’

 

 

Touch is powerful.

Touch is powerful.

Amongst higher animals, touch and grooming form an important part of daily life which provides comfort and creates social bonds.

As babies, touch provides our most powerful experiences and creates the most comfort but as adults, we tend to shy away from being in close proximity to others and we don’t feel we deserve to take time out to feel good and recharge.

So, step out of everyday life, de-stress and let us treat you for an hour or so….
