Fertility Reflexology

Fertility Reflexology uses techniques specifically designed to help couples have a better balance of health, bringing the body back into Harmony and Balance, and creating better conditions in which the the body may conceive.  Fertility Reflexology may be beneficial in improving outcomes, alleviating symptoms, and helping couples to improve their fertility.  I specialise in a holistic, natural approach to fertility preparation and combine with nutritional and lifestyle recommendations.  I believe Fertility Reflexology may assist by directing the flow of vital energy to where it is needed by balancing and restoring health and reducing the impact of stress. I treat the whole person and not the specific conditions. I can also support you on your journey though IVF, helping to relax and calm your mind .

Treatment lasts 60mins and costs £45.  I use Grace Organic Massage Wax for your treatment along with a range of organic foot creams.

Pregnancy Massage & Reflexology

Being pregnant is an exciting time. It is also one of great change both physically and emotionally.  Studies by Dr Gowri Motha, author of The Gentle Birth Method, have shown that Mums receiving regular Reflexology and Massage throughout pregnancy benefit in many ways.  It has been shown that there is a marked reduction in the duration of labour and a reduction in their need for pain relief. Research shows that the unborn baby can be affected by stress levels experienced by its mother during pregnancy. Babies of mothers receiving massage and reflexology during pregnancy appear calmer as these therapies help mum relax, supporting her body through a period of great psychological and physical change. This allows the Baby to develop inside the womb within an atmosphere of calm and tranquillity.

Massage & Reflexology in pregnancy may also help:

  • Ease and support an aching back.
  • Lessen the discomfort of Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP)
  • Soothe swollen legs and disperse fluid retention.
  • Boost energy levels and relieve fatigue.
  • Lessen the experience of morning sickness.
  • Calm and regulate a stressed digestive system.
  • Strengthen the urinary tract and pelvic floor muscles. Encourage a healthy and strong internal environment for the baby to grow.
  • Promote homeostasis, or balance, when all bodily systems are working harmoniously.
  • Prepare your body for the journey of childbirth.

This treatment costs £42 for 60mins, £50 for 75mins and £58 for 90mins. I use Grace Organic Massage Wax and organic Rosehip Seed Oil with Vitamin A, scented with mandarin essential oil, which assists with cell regeneration and has been used successfully to reduce and prevent stretch marks.

4th Trimester Healing Time

Your baby is here and you are in need of a little rejuvenation! Up to four months after delivery, your body still
behaves as though it is pregnant, the 4th Trimester Healing Time is a 75 minute Massage & Reflexology treatment
specifically designed to help ease the transition for new mums.

The relaxing top to toe massage with organic oils helps realign and restore your body as it naturally
adapts and returns to being one person again. Labour is a wonderful experience but can be intense and massage can
help your body postnatally with any muscle tightness and back or pelvis issues.

Reflexology has a calming, harmonising and balancing effect upon the body.  It is a relaxing and enjoyable experience
and allows your body to adjust to the changes taking place. Postnatally reflexology may help assist the metabolism to
work more efficiently, rebalancing the hormones to avoid postnatal depression, helping to stimulate breast milk
and uterine contractions which help to get your figure back!

Together these treatments combine to make up the 4th Trimester Healing Time. Sometimes new mothers need a little
mothering too! This is your Healing Time – and you’ve earned it. A perfect present from your loved ones,
for baby showers or from yourself.

The 4th Trimester Healing Time is a 75 minute Massage & Reflexology treatment using organic oils and costs just £50.

Reflexology

Reflexology is a pressure therapy applied to the feet to stimulate the many nerve endings.  Each part of the foot is said to mirror the anatomy of the body and stimulation of specific pressure points may trigger the body’s natural healing processes and as a non-intrusive technique, allows the body to heal itself.  Reflexology helps eliminate toxin build up, which in turn assists with overall health and wellbeing.

Reflexology has many beneficial and lasting effects. Some treatments are gentle in nature, aiming to restore systems for better function while others are more specific, addressing the client’s particular conditions. It is a healing process that can be safely used when it is not convenient to treat other body parts. Reflexology can be a relaxing therapy that works on many levels, soothing, calming, balancing and boosting the entire body.  Each session lasts for 60 mins and will be tailored to suit your individual needs using traditional Reflexology, Vertical Reflexology and Precision Reflexology.

Reflexology may be beneficial for many issues including, but not limited to:

  • Sinus pain
  • Menopausal symptoms
  • Pre-menstrual syndrome and other menstrual irregularities
  • Migraines
  • Depression
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Constipation/Diarrhoea
  • Sciatica
  • Asthma
  • Muscular and skeletal pain

General benefits of Reflexology include:

  • Reduced stress and tension
  • Improved circulation
  • Reduced toxicity
  • Improved immunity
  • Increased body awareness

This treatment lasts 60mins and costs £40.  I use Grace Organic Massage Wax for your treatment along with a range of organic foot creams.

Raindrop Therapy

Imagine the sensation of sinking into a deep and blissful state of rest, as therapeutic grade essential oils are feathered over your spine and the ancient Tibetan version of Reflexology is administered to your feet. You can’t get more pampered than this.

Originally developed by essential oil researcher and naturopath Dr Gary Young, Raindrop Therapy is a 90 minute treatment applied to the feet, back and neck which allows the body to sink into a deep state of relaxation and self-connection. In this receptive state, inner shifts may more easily take place.
The Native Americans believe that raindrops falling from a height may purify and cleanse the body and spirit. Because the essential oils easily penetrate the skin and muscles, the technique works on deeper levels of the body, clearing any inflammation-producing bacteria and viruses that can reside along the spine. Vitaflex Technique, the Ancient Tibetan form of Reflexology, is designed to send an electrical pulse along the nerve pathways of the body. This pulse reaches areas of the body where there is a break in the electrical circuit caused by toxins, damaged tissues or loss of oxygen.
Together these techniques form the 4 step Raindrop Therapy.
Step 1 the recipient is positioned face down, and essential oils are ‘rain dropped’ gently onto the back and spine, interacting with the body’s energy field (its aura) even before they contact the physical body, producing an intensified effect. The oils are then massaged into the back using a variety of modern massage techniques and Vitaflex moves.
Step 2 , is an Energy Balancing step. A blend of essential oils is applied to the feet, which are held for around 10mins to help balance the electrical energies in the body and the aura, promoting a deep state of relaxation.
Step 3 the Vitaflex Technique, involves a distinctive movement of the hands and fingers, and sends the receiver into an even deeper state of relaxation as the essential oils combine with the electrical pulses to uplift the body and mind, and release tension, congestion and imbalances.
Step 4 the recipient is positioned face up, and their head and neck is gently massaged and cupped around the occiput, where the skull joins the neck, and a series of specific movements effectively pumps the lymphatic fluid of the body.

Raindrop therapy is a deeply relaxing and cleansing therapy, recommended 4 times a year to release tension, congestion and imbalances and help build up the body’s immune system. The therapy uses high quality organic essential oils and costs £65 for 75 minutes.

LaStone Hot & Cold Stone Massage

It is said that one stroke of the stone is equivalent to ten of the hand. This therapy has been used for thousands of years for balancing all levels of emotional, mental and physical energies. Volcanic in origin, basalt stones are heated and massaged over the body. It is intensive energy work that enables relaxation and a reduction in stress levels as the stones have a sedative effect on the nervous system.  Hot stones increase the circulation and soften muscle fascia more deeply than traditional massage therapies, providing relief from tense and painful muscles. Cold stones provide  balance & harmony, the physiological benefits of alternating hot and cold to the body have long been scientifically and medically proven.You will leave feeling relaxed, comforted, soothed and grounded.

This treatment uses organic aromatherapy oils and costs £50 for 60mins.

Natural Face Lift Massage

This wonderfully relaxing treatment may lessen wrinkles and expression lines, tighten facial contours, tone and improve the complexion, release stress and tension in surrounding muscles, soothe tension headaches, eyestrain and stress-related symptoms, enhance feelings of well-being and encourage a positive and confident appearance.

Tension can very easily build up in our facial muscles without us realising it. Over a period of time, habitual thoughts and emotions can lock themselves into expressions on our faces – particularly around the eyes and mouth. This can be exacerbated by additional factors such as sun, pollution, alcohol, poor diet, lack of sleep, the effects of gravity and every day stresses and strains. Under such conditions muscles can actually “dry up” and contract, inhibiting freedom of expression. This can encourage ageing and the formation of wrinkles as the face loses its muscle tone and elasticity and begins to sag.

Natural Face Lift Massage can relieve tension in areas you had no idea were tense. Energy balancing techniques bring a deep feeling of relaxation to the whole body and the noticeable effects can quickly be seen on the face. During the treatment, over ninety face and neck muscles are systematically massaged. Acupressure points are activated, stimulating energy flow and releasing deep-seated tension, freeing layers of muscle and connective tissue (8 of the 12 major energy meridians have points on the face!). Ayurvedic ‘smoothing’ techniques are used so that circulation and elimination are improved and the tissues can glide smoothly over the deeper layers of muscle and bone. The whole process has been described as a bit like ironing out the creases, making the skin feel smoother and softer and improving the complexion and skin tone.  Skin becomes softer, eyes appear brighter and the complexion looks fresher and more toned. Bagginess and puffiness around eyes and chin are reduced and flexibility and mobility return to the face. As well as the visible benefits, clients often report feeling more relaxed and positive, sleeping better and obtaining relief from headaches and other stress related symptoms.

Although you can see a difference after only one treatment, the effects are cumulative and work best over a course of 6-8 treatments of 30 minutes, with monthly maintenance treatments thereafter. This treatment uses Eve Taylor pre-blended aromatherapy facial oil and costs £30 for 30 mins.

Reiki

Reiki is a method of natural energy healing based on the use of Universal Life Force. It is a way of channeling the Earth’s Energy through the practitioner’s hands and into the client’s body, specifically to wherever it is needed. It was rediscovered by Dr. Usui in the 19th century.  Reiki energy brings deep relaxation, in turn soothing emotions and reducing negative feelings. Reiki can help you be the best that you can be. It can help unlock your natural creativity allowing you to reach your full potential. It brings clarity, focus and a sense of purpose back into life. It enhances the benefits of all other therapies. It helps you find true peace of mind and brings positivity to help you cope with life’s daily challenges.

As Reiki treats the whole body and not just symptoms it may assist in the treatment of almost all conditions and is suitable for all ages. It may also ease the pain of more chronic diseases and may help reduce the negative side effects of drugs and other treatments. Reiki recognises that it is not our problems that need healing but our whole self. Reiki works by clearing away the blockages that prevent us from being whole. The client is fully clothed during the treatment which lasts for 30 or 60 mins.

I am a Reiki Master and Teacher have received my Reiki attunement from one of the most respected Reiki Masters in the area allowing my lineage to be traced back through to Mikao Usui, the founder of the Reiki system.

This treatment costs £30 for 30mins and £40 for 60mins.

Metamorphic Technique

Metamorphic Technique is a simple tool that enables us to move from feelings of limitation towards accessing more of our potential. In short, it helps us to help ourselves. It is wonderfully uplifting and suitable for all, from newborn to elderly, and can help with many ailments and complaints, including relationship problems, depression and stress, and trauma.

Metamorphic Technique is based around the theory that our time in the womb is when we establish the blueprint of our life. Any stresses or traumas experienced during this time may cause a specific pattern of behaviour. We may repeat this behaviour throughout our lives which may hold us back, making us feel ‘stuck’.

Metamorphic Technique acts as a catalyst to your Life Force which can transform whatever you feel may be holding you back., in a way that is always perfectly appropriate for you.

The client is fully clothed whilst the practitioner’s fingers perform a series of gently movements working along the spinal reflexes of the feet, hands and head. It is a deeply relaxing experience during which many people fall asleep, although some clients prefer to chat during the session – whichever you feel more comfortable with. It suits many clients because you don’t need to ‘fix’ anything or talk about issues during a session. The treatment lasts for 60 mins.

I trained in Metamorphic Technique with Dominique Mallee Meeroff who brings a heart centred approach to Metamorphic Technique and is a leading teacher and practitioner. Dominique was personally trained by Gaston St Pierre founder of The Metamorphic Association in 1979.

This treatment lasts for 60mins and costs £40.
