Reflexology is based on the principle that all parts of the body are reflected in the feet or hands & by applying pressure to these certain areas, it will help to balance the corresponding part of the body. Reflexology is a “Holistic” therapy, which means that it treats the whole person rather than just the symptoms of a condition. Reflexology encourages the body to activate its own natural healing ability to restore & maintain its equilibrium.Excellent for Stress & Anxiety, Depression, Insomnia, IBS, Headaches & Migraines, IVF & Infertility & Menopausal symptoms. Reflexologist do not diagnose and do not prescribe.
Reflexology For Sub-Fertility Treatment (Clomid,IUI,ICIS,IVF)
Infertility in a couple can be caused by many factors, and trying for a baby can be incredibly stressful for both partners. Reflexology can help on a physical level by boosting circulation, balancing hormone levels, regulating the menstrual cycle helping to cleanse the body, and balancing the muscular and skeletal system. However Reflexology also works on the deeper psychological and spiritual levels by relieving stress and encouraging feelings of relaxation, peace and well-being, all of which are so important during what can be a very difficult time. By working on all three levels Reflexology can help to create a healthy environment for pregnancy to occur, hopefully!
Infertility Reflexology can be used to support couples who are trying naturally, as well as those who are undergoing fertility treatment such as Clomid , IUI and IVF, and has been found helpful for women suffering with PCOS and endometriosis.
I specialize in this area, as I have close friends who have undergone fertility treatment, so I am aware of the drug protocol, egg collection , embryo transfer and the 2 week wait. I work with both men and woman. I provide a comprehensive programme looking at health and lifestyle changes, and also discuss visualization/hypnotherapy and provide a CD to listen to helping with what is a very stressful journey to parenthood.
Reflexology and Pregnancy
After the first trimester, Reflexology has been found to be extremely helpful for the mother-to-be. The main benefits are the relief of anxiety and tension, an increase in energy levels, a feeling of well-being, relief of some unwelcome symptoms of pregnancy (such as backache, insomnia, morning sickness etc) and it helps to prepare the body for labour.
Regular treatments throughout the pregnancy can help to maintain a sense of well-being and harmony during a time that can bring dramatic, and sometimes frightening, changes to a woman’s life.

This is an ancient practise, that has been used for centuries to relieve conditions of the ear, nose & throat. Including sinus pressure & pain, colds, flu, ear ache headache & snoring. A candle is placed into the ear, A light suction action & the movement of the flame creates a vibration of air in the ear candle, generating a massage-like effect on the eardrum. A pleasant feeling of warmth can be felt in the ear, as the pressure in the sinus cavities equalises. This includes a Facial Massage before and after to assist with drainage.
