You will love Reflexology …

There are many factors in life such as illness, stress and injury that can create a state of imbalance, a state of 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;

  • Headaches/Migraine
  • Back and Chronic Pain
  • Insomnia
  • Sinusitis, Ear and Throat Issues
  • Heart Health including Circulation and Blood Pressure
  • Asthma
  • Sciatica
  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Lupus
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Fertility and Menstrual Complications
  • Body Detox by purifying the lymphatic system
  • Increased Energy Flow
  • Proper Organ Function
  • Diabetes

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 wellbeing.

 

Fertility Reflexology.. give it a try !

It is difficult discovering you are one of those “one in six couples” who are having difficulties conceiving.  Having been there myself, I understand how upsetting this can be and 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 the remaining third are issues on both the male and female sides.

Infertility can be linked to stress, anxiety and hormonal imbalances causing 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, lifestyle and occupation, which can affect both you and your partner.

It is very worthwhile to have 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 helps 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.

if all else fails…..

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 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 would also request that you bring any test reports with you which will allow me to investigate further which treatment will be right for you.

Contact me today to make an appointment by pressing the “Contact Me Today” button below or alternatively call me on 086-8147959.  If I do not pick up your call, it could be that I am with a client but I will call you back as soon as I can.

It should also be noted that I am a member of the NRRI which will allow you to claim back part/full payment of your treatment from your Private Health Insurance.  Contact them first to confirm that you are covered.

Something else you might try….

OK, I know this is going to sound “way out there” for a lot of people but it something that works great for me so I will share it anyway.

Everyone has seven chakras which are the centers in our bodies in which energy flows through.  Factors such as stress can cause blocked energy in our chakras which can often lead to illness, so it’s important to keep this energy flowing freely.  Even though it is essential to keep all our chakras aligned and unblocked, the chakra most associated with our reproduction organs, is our Sacral Chakra (please see my diagram).  This chakra can be found below the belly button and is associated with the colour orange.

When I perform a Reflexology treatment on a client, I energetically balance all the chakras to release negative energy and introduce positive energy to the body.  This also has the effect of maintaining a positive mental attitude.

As a self help, I would advise that you go on to Youtube and look up meditations which balance your chakras.  When I do these meditations, I can feel a weight being lifted off my Root and Sacral chakras.  This is obviously where I carry my stress.

Give it a go !

Facial Reflexology…

This beautiful holistic treatment was developed by Ziggy Bergman, an award winning Reflexologist in the UK.  Ziggy is a pioneer in modern Facial Reflexology and was the 2017 Winner of the Association of Reflexologists Award for Excellence and Innovation in modern Facial Reflexology for creating her anti-aging Zone Face Lift.

Like Foot Reflexology, Facial Reflexology is based on Zone Therapy and is built on a combination of Native American techniques and Asian body maps that chart the reflex points on the face.  However, this gentle yet powerful  treatment works closer to the body’s power house, the brain & the central nervous system, helping to identify reflexes out of balance and improving your health and well-being.  Over time it can also help you to look younger and will give your skin a lovely healthy glow.

Daily activities such as eating, talking, frowning, facial expressions etc. can cause tension in our facial muscles which Facial Reflexology can relieve.

Facial Reflexology has some unique benefits for certain conditions for example;

  • Sinusitis
  • Infertility
  • Migraines
  • PMT & Hormonal Imbalance
  • Bruxism (teeth grinding)
  • IBS & digestive issues
  • Bells Palsy
  • Sinus
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Tinnitus
  • Menopause

My experience in giving this treatment to my clients so far is that they have found it very, very relaxing and in most cases, the client falls asleep.  The massaging techniques used, bring blood and nutrients to the skin, smoothing out lines and improving skin tone.  This in turn helps clients to feel good and look their best.
