There are many factors in life such as illness, stress, injury, emotions that can create a state of imbalance and disease, but the body has a natural ability to heal itself.
Reflexology is a gentle non-invasive healing therapy which removes blockages and relieves stress whilst encouraging the body to heal itself, at its own pace. It will treat the whole person and not just symptoms that may be present at the time.
Reflexology uses the feet, hands, face and ears as a map of the entire body and has been used as a therapy as far back as 4,000 B.C. in places like China and Egypt.
Some of the conditions which can be treated by Reflexology are;
Courses of treatment vary in length depending on the individual. Long standing problems might require 6-8 sessions with each session lasting around 1 hour. Once the body has regained its balance, an occasional treatment will stimulate the immune system and maintain a sense of
It is difficult discovering you are one of the "one in six couples" who are having difficulties conceiving. Having been there myself, I understand how upsetting this can be. I know the huge emotional and physical stress that couples are under when trying to get pregnant. For this reason, I make it my mission to help couples who find themselves in the same position I was in.
Approximately one third of fertility issues are on the male side, one third on the female side and one third are issues on both the male and female sides.
Infertility can be linked to stress, anxiety and hormonal imbalances. These can cause Endometriosis, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, irregular or no menstrual cycle etc. The ability to conceive can also be dependent on factors such as the foods you eat, your lifestyle and your occupation, affecting both parties in the relationship.
It is worthwhile having a course of Reflexology treatments before embarking on the more invasive, stressful and very expensive alternatives. Fertility Reflexology will gently re-balance the body bringing emotional and physical harmony and enhancing the body for conception. When we are stressed, our Reproductive, Digestive and Repair functions are paused and don't work efficiently. When the body is relaxed and de-stressed, energy levels are restored to these areas. Regular Reflexology treatments help to maintain this relaxed state allowing the reproductive hormones to work more effectively by keeping the body in balance. Often when the client relaxes and feels they are actively doing something to help themselves, they get pregnant very quickly.
This treatment works great for men and women.
Alas, not all fertility issues can be corrected with Reflexology so it will be necessary to visit your GP for a referral for further investigations.
However, if Assisted Reproductive Techniques (ART) such as IVF, ICSI, IUI, Clomid or FET is required, it is now recommended to have reflexology during this stressful time. It can help to increase the success rate by reducing stress.
On your first session with me, we will need to complete a Fertility Consultation form which will be updated at each session. I also request that you bring any test reports with you. These will allow me to investigate further the right treatment for you.

Please ensure that the Reflexologist you attend is qualified in Fertility Reflexology. In Fertility Reflexology, there is a different treatment protocol for each week of the cycle for each condition.
Being pregnant is a wonderful time to cherish and embrace. Your body is stretching, your hormones are working hard and you swing between the happiness of being pregnant and the worry for your little one. You're watching what you eat and trying to stay well as best you can.
But pregnancy can also come with a few discomforts which you may experience at some point during your pregnancy. This is where Pregnancy Reflexology comes in. It is a gentle and natural therapy and can help ease some of the minor disorders such as;
Benefits of Reflexology include;
There are times in a pregnancy when I will not be able to perform Reflexology on clients. Conditions than can prevent Pregnancy Reflexology are;

So, how would you like a relaxing treatment that will make your skin glow and enhances your health and wellbeing ?? Well, that is what Facial Reflexology can do for you. If you do not like your feet touched and would like to experience the benefits of Foot Reflexology, then you need to give this luxurious treatment a try.
The treatment was developed by Ziggy Bergman, an award winning Reflexologist in the UK. She is a pioneer in modern Facial Reflexology and her clientele include many supermodels and celebrities.
Like Foot Reflexology, Facial Reflexology is based on Zone Therapy where the face is broken down into zones. When an imbalanced reflex in a particular zone has been resolved, all the reflexes in that zone are positively affected.
The treatment is built on a combination of Native American techniques and Asian body maps, that chart the reflex points on the face. This gentle yet powerful treatment works closer to the brain and the central nervous system, bringing immediate relaxation and stress relief. In fact, most clients fall asleep after the first ten minutes ! Any reflexes out of balance are stimulated to improve the health and well-being of my client. Over time, Facial Reflexology can also help to reduce lines and give your skin a lovely healthy glow.
Daily activities such as eating, talking, frowning and facial expressions can cause tension to build up in our facial muscles which is relieved with Facial Reflexology.
Facial Reflexology has some unique benefits for certain conditions such as;
The massaging techniques used during this treatment, bring blood and nutrients to the skin, smoothing out lines and improving skin tone. This in turn makes the client feel good and to look their best.
This luxurious treatment is wonderful on its own or in combination with Foot Reflexology, Reiki or Indian Head Massage.

Indian Head Massage is a wonderfully relaxing treatment. The massage concentrates on the upper back, shoulders, arms, neck and head easing out the knots and reducing tension that is being held there. This in turn can eliminate headaches and migraine.
It also increases nourishment and oxygen to the scalp which stimulates hair growth.
Your lymphatic system will get stimulated which will increase blood flow to the area, and will help to remove waste products from the body.
Because of its proximity to the brain, the massage increases blood flow to the area and can reduce anxiety and depression. It can also improve memory difficulties.
Reiki is a gentle, non intrusive healing energy which works on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing of the client, enhancing everything in life. It works in a similar way to acupuncture and acupressure by removing energy blockages and promoting the free flow of energy throughout the body. This in turn enhances the body's innate ability to heal itself.
Some of the benefits of Reiki include;
FRT is a specialised treatment developed to support children at home and in school, young adults and vulnerable adults with;
The treatment itself takes about 20/25 minutes and can be performed on the feet or on the hands. Some of the benefits of this treatment includes;
Hi, my Name is Catherine and I am a wife and a mother of 2 wonderful boys living in Ratoath Co. Meath.
Because of my journey to motherhood, a whole new world opened up to me and made me re-address;
The first time I encountered Reflexology was many years ago when I was trying to get pregnant. Back then I didn't really understand how Reflexology was helping me but I did find it amazingly relaxing. Now I have 2 boys who are teenagers.
As my boys got older I immersed myself more deeply in to a holistic way of life. I walked a lot, took up yoga and during a spell of insomnia, I also took up meditation and I still do it. It wasn't until 2016 that my opportunity to learn Reflexology came up. It sounds weird but I was somehow drawn to it. That Christmas my husband had asked what I wanted for my Christmas pressie, and I said a Foot Spa.....A FOOT SPA !! Then I saw an advert for a cancellation place on a Reflexology Diploma course which had come up and I just knew it was for me and I got the place. During my training I became totally in awe of how powerful this treatment is and the stories that a pair of feet can tell.
After months of hard slog studying Reflexology, I got my diploma. I loved it so much that I added to my list of therapies which now include;
I pride myself on providing all my clients with a top quality thorough, relaxing and professional Reflexology treatment and have had amazing results. My belief is that we need to bring balance to the mind, body and spirit and that's what I am to do through my treatments. To be the best at what I do, I consistently update my skills and add to my skill set so my clients get value for money and benefit from new and emerging treatments.
I am registered with the National Register of Reflexologists in Ireland. As a member of the NRRI, you can be assured that you are getting the best treatment. This also entitles my clients to claim part of their treatment costs back from their Private Health Insurance. Contact them beforehand to ensure you are covered as it will depend on what plan you are on.
I would love for you to contact me and make an appointment. Let's get acquainted and see what I can do to bring relaxation and balance back in to your life.

We all know that happy staff are productive staff.
Having previously worked in the Corporate field as an IT Network Manager, I know firsthand how stressful a job can be when you are up against project deadlines and trying to keep your "head above water" with your workload.
Although some stress is normal and can be a good thing in the workplace, excessive stress can reduce the performance of staff and this in turn will reduce productivity. It can also cause physical and emotional tension and anxiety which will impact on relationships both in the workplace and at home.
I am a certified Reflexologist and fully insured. I can come to your workplace fully equipped and perform Hand Reflexology, Foot Reflexology, Facial Reflexology and Indian Head Massage. All I would require is a small heated room where I can organise my treatment bed/indian head massage chair.
Treatments can be run in 30 minute slots and staff will return to their desks in a better headspace than when they arrived.
Treatments can be included as part of a Corporate Wellness Package or within a Sports & Social Club, if your company has one.
As I am registered with the National Register of Reflexologists in Ireland, the company would be entitled to a rebate from a Private Health Insurer, if this is in place within the company.
