What is Reflexology?
Imagine the feet are a map of the body – inside and out. Reflexology aims to bring the body back to its natural balance, both physically and emotionally, through discovery and then focusing attention on areas that may display signs of imbalance. It is deeply relaxing and involves the application of pressure using thumbs and fingers in small movements to stimulate an area of the body through the corresponding reflexes on the foot. This helps to promote the body’s own healing process and create a sense of well-being.
NOTE: Reflexology is not an alternative to conventional medicine and does not claim to diagnose or cure illness. Thrive recommends you always seek advice from a medical professional if you have any concerns about your health.
I first experienced the benefits of reflexology during the latter stages of pregnancy and then again when I had a series of treatments to support symptoms I was experiencing around a time of being diagnosed with a hormone imbalance. I decided to train as a Reflexologist so I could help other people achieve a strong sense of wellbeing.
I completed the Level 5 Practioner Diploma in Reflexology with Jubilee College, which included specialist training in fertility & maternity care, pallitive care, stress, anxiety & PTSD.
I am continuing to develop my skills and knowledge and I have a keen interest in women's health, including menopause, and stress & anxiety disorders. I am a qualified sleep consultant and also teach the Level 5 Practitioner Diploma in Reflexology with Jubilee College.
I am a member of the Association of Reflexologists and I'm fully insured.
I believe in a 360 approach to wellbeing and my goal is to provide my clients with a relaxing complementary therapy experience, which is bespoke and aligned to meet your specific needs. I want to empower you to take control of your own wellbeing and to thrive!
So what can you expect?
At that start of your first treatment, I'll take a full medical history so I can ensure treatments suit your goals. You will be seated and reclined in an anti-gravity chair, with a bolster supporting your lower legs and to ensure you are comfortable. Then all you need to do is close your eyes, relax and take some time for yourself - or you can chat away if you prefer!
To conclude the treatment, there will be an opportunity to discuss anything you might have noticed throughout the treatment and you will be provided with specific aftercare advice on how to maintain your wellbeing.
