As a Reflexologist I do not ‘prescribe’, I do not ‘diagnose’ and I do not agree to treat a client for a ‘specific ailment’. I treat the person as opposed to the condition. The aim of Reflexology is to assist in reducing stress and tension within the body, thereby rebalancing, and inducing a state of relaxation and wellbeing.
Most physiological symptoms are by-products of an unhappy and stressed individual. Although stress is not an illness in itself, if not under control, it can cause serious illness such as heart disease, asthma, stroke, diabetes and some types of cancer. It could be said that illness is a wake up call from the soul telling oneself to stop and review life, and perhaps to alter one's course. Stress can also affect the mind; you may feel worried, anxious, irritable, or have low self esteem.. you may lose your temper more easily, drink more, or act unreasonably. Your mood can have an impact on how well you sleep. If stressed you may not sleep well enough, which in turn will leave you feeling more stressed.
Reflexology is an excellent holistic therapy for reducing tension, and inducing relaxation. When we are free from stress, not only does this promote better health, but we have better relationships, better quality sleep, and our overall mood is improved.
Cancer and Palliative Care
According to Cancer Research UK, Reflexology is considered one of the most popular types of complementary therapy in the UK amongst people living with cancer, and of those requiring palliative care. This may be due to a number of things:
How you feel determines how you cope ..
Reflexology may help relieve symptoms related to conventional cancer treatments such as nausea, stress, and insomnia. There is also evidence to suggest that, as part of a holistic approach to wellbeing, Reflexology may encourage pain relief, elevate mood, and boost immunity. In palliative care the aforementioned is of particular importance to ensure the patient lives as well as possible. In the final stages of life, Reflexology may also help calm emotions and relieve anxiety; enabling the patient to feel more in control.
In addition to physical benefits, Reflexology is also believed to help palliative care patients on an emotional and spiritual level. By providing positive and therapeutic touch, Reflexology offers a way to communicate silently, express love and concern, and help the patient relax.

Hot Stone massage originated in India and China and has been around for centuries; ancient civilizations believed that hot stones cleansed the body and relaxed the heart, grounding the soul and soothing the mind.

Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being.
Reiki is not a religion, but it does honour the life force in all things. It is a healing energy that is guided spiritually, it is not based on belief, faith or suggestion.
Indian Head Massage
If you are feeling stressed or angry, tension tends to accumulate. It can cause mild, moderate, or intense pain in your head, neck, shoulders, and behind the eyes. Indian Head Massage involves working with a firm and gentle rhythm to help unknot blockages and relieve this uncomfortable build-up of tension - it also works on an emotional level, calming the spirit, promoting relaxation and relieving stress.
