Reflexology & Massage - Perfect solutions in managing our stress symptoms and promoting relaxation.
Reflexology is a truly holistic therapy, working by balancing the whole body, not just a specific area or disease. It is a safe, clothed, non-invasive therapy - you just need to lie back and relax.
Reflexology is a wonderfully relaxing therapy. It facilitates the body's own natural healing abilities and works to bring the body into balance. By maintaining an internal equilibrium our body is able to resist illness more effectively and, by working with our immune system we are able to maintain a positive wellbeing.
How Does Reflexology Work?
Reflexology works by the stimulation of nerve endings in the feet, hands and face ~ and by the stimulation of energy through energy pathways. It has an effect by activating the relaxation response which literally is the polar opposite of the stress response. The activation of the relaxation response promotes deeper breathing, more effective digestion, improved brain function allowing us to think more clearly and remember things! It boosts our immune system and reduces the amount of stress hormones in our system.
Reflexology is the perfect way to bring energy and vitality to your day!
Reflexology is not a method for diagnosing and healing illness. Reflexology is about reducing the physical and psychological symptoms of stress. Our body and our mind work so much more efficiently and, we feel so much better. It helps us to become focused and energised and, by working in this way, we can increase our motivation, confidence and self-esteem. It is an amazing treatment for reducing stress and most of my clients fall asleep during a session!
In short, Reflexology can help us get our mojo back!

Massage Therapy ~ a wonderful way to reduce stress!
The benefits of Massage Therapy are endless, but the most important benefit is how good it makes you feel.
Our modern busy lifestyles create all kinds of physical and psychological stresses and these, over time can cause a weakening of our body's defences and we become more vulnerable to illness and disease.
When we are stressed, our muscles become tense! This tension restricts the flow of oxygen and nutrients into the muscle fibres and, prevents adequate disposal of waste products - and we become sluggish, tired and achy.
Massage and Reflexology are relaxing and comforting therapies, with all the additional therapeutic effects to help us overcome our stress, pain and fatigue :
- Increased circulation
- Increased lymphatic drainage
- Boosts the immune system
- Reduces musculo-skeletal aches and pains by relieving tension and knots in the muscles.
- Relief of headaches and eyestrain.
- By promoting equilibrium of the body systems, it helps to facilitate and balance the body's own natural healing mechanisms ~ helping us to take ownership and responsibility of our own health and wellbeing.
