Reflexology is an ancient holistic technique that aims to activate the body’s natural potential for healing. It works on the principle that there are energy zones that run throughout the body and reflex areas in the feet, that correspond to all of the major organs, glands and parts of the body. Specific pressure/massage techniques are used on the reflex points, which encourages the release of tension and energy blockages, the correction of imbalances and the elimination of toxins.
From ancient texts and illustrations we know that the early Egyptians, Japanese, Chinese and Russians worked on the feet to promote good health, so similar therapies have been used hundreds of years. Reflexology helps to induce deep relaxation, which can be soothing for many ailments and as such, can be a powerful therapy for any stress-related problems.

As a counsellor, I am able to provide a confidential, non-judgemental and empathic space for you to be able to talk things through. Sometimes this is so important, especially if you are experiencing any difficulties or stress in your life. As a hypnotherapist I am well placed to teach you effective tools for stress-reduction if needed and can also provide a relaxation CD to help continue with stress reduction at home.
What will happen during a treatment?
A reflexology treatment will be carried out on bare feet and will take place while you relax on a couch or chair. Most people find the sensation pleasant and soothing, though occasionally some minor discomfort may be felt. This could indicate an imbalance in a corresponding part of the body and will ease as the session progresses. The treatment aims to leave you feeling calm and re-balanced.
