Reflexology is a natural holistic therapy that helps to bring the body back into balance and promote healing. By unblocking any congestion in the natural energy flows throughout our bodies, reflexology aims to restore the functional and emotional status-quo.

Just as with massage, this type of treatment stimulates the circulation system as well as nerve endings. This encourages a state of relaxation, reducing stress and promoting wellbeing.

It involves a stimulating pressure being applied to reflex points found on the feet (or hands), which correspond to each organ, gland or part of the whole body. The purpose of treating holistically is so that the cause of the problem can be given focus and not just the symptoms.

What are the benefits of Reflexology?
- Improves circulation ensuring a steady and fresh blood supply rich in oxygen and a flush of lymphatic fluids throughout the body. This in turn can reduce blood pressure, coldness in the hands and feet, fatigue and achiness, and remove swelling and unwanted metabolic waste by-products
- Strengthens the body's immune system through the release and elimination of waste by-products and toxins
- Rebalances the body's natural energy flows - clearing blockages that may have manifest through trauma, disease or stress
- Speeds up the natural healing process
- Helps to maintain good health
- Promotes a feeling of relaxation, by reducing stress and tension

What to expect from a Reflexology treatment
During the first visit, a brief medical history will be taken. It is advisable to wear loose fitting clothing and you will be required to remove your shoes and socks (unless hands are being treated). You will be seated on a reclining chair or couch for the session, and a precise pressure will be applied to all reflex points on both feet, with additional work over reflexes pertinent to the condition being treated. Additional techniques may be used during Fertility and Maternity Reflexology treatments.

Most people find the session extremely relaxing and many fall into a restful sleep during the treatment. Tenderness may be experienced on reflex points where energies are blocked, but this is quite normal. For some people minor reactions to treatment often occur, but they will usually pass within 48 hours. Many people who try it, do find that reflexology is beneficial to some level whether it helps to completely clear the problem, relieve the symptoms or pain, or just help them feel better.

Although a single session in itself can be extremely relaxing, it is advisable to bear in mind that a course of treatment will most likely be required to assist with many conditions, particularly if they have been experienced for a long time. This said, you should start to see some benefits from treatment quite early.

Fertility & Maternity Reflexology

Maternity Reflexology can be very successful in helping throughout the reproductive process, from Infertility -
Pre-conception - Antenatal - Postnatal.

Infertility can be deeply distressing and permeate all aspects of life. Fertility treatment is full of uncertainty and can be stressful, daunting, expensive and take the individuals involved on a roller coaster of emotions. Reflexology has an excellent reputation for helping sub-fertile couples to conceive.

As the female body goes through the huge changes and adaptation necessary during and after pregnancy they are often challenged with a number of conditions and discomforts both physically and emotionally, which Reflexology can help to ease in a non-invasive and natural way.

The general principle of Fertility & Maternity Reflexology is very similar, but a typical treatment will be gentler, than that of standard Reflexology and is adapted to suit the individual and conditions present. Also, additional special techniques may be used during a session, for example, endocrine balancing and the lymphatic technique to help balance the hormones and movement of fluids throughout the body during pregnancy.

Treatments can be undertaken throughout the pregnancy and if the pregnancy goes well beyond term there are techniques that, with the permission of the obstetric care-giver, can be used to try to prime labour.

What are the benefits of Fertility & Maternity Reflexology?
- Feels relaxing whilst providing a healing touch
- Can reduce toxin levels, moderate swelling, high blood pressure and time spent in labour
- Eases many minor ailments of pregnancy, such as morning sickness, back ache, heartburn, constipation, sore feet, etc.
- Helps to create a more normal balance of hormones, optimal conditions for conception, pregnancy and birthing
- Effective reduction of stress and anxiety - a major factor in infertility

Who can benefit from Fertility & Maternity Reflexology?
Fertility & Maternity Reflexology can help during pre-conception, antenatal and postnatal phases by naturally bringing the body back into balance. In particular, Reflexology has an excellent reputation for helping sub-fertile couples to conceive.

Marathon and half marathon training schedules are well under way now - Roxanne is going to be running (or some may say 'shuffling') around Silverstone Half Marathon later this month. Remember if you've upped your training recently it'll serve you well to plan in an occasional Sports Massage to your routine to avoid injuries.

"Thank you so much for helping us to have our beautiful baby girl."
Becky and Rob

"I don't think I realised just how stressed out I was until I came to see you. You helped me to relax and unwind. I'm still busy, but I don't feel so ill and tired out all the time."

"Not sure how you did it but you managed to turn my baby so helped me avoid having a c-section. Can't thank you enough."
  Coming soon.
