Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that there are thousands of reflexes on the feet and hands which correspond to every organ, gland or part of the body. By stimulating these reflexes in a systematic manner with various techniques, using the thumbs and fingers, the subtle energies of the body are re-balanced, restored and harmonised leading to an improved sense of health and well-being.
During your initial consultation, I will require detailed information on your medical history, existing and past physical and emotional issues and also look at your nutrition and lifestyle. Reflexology is a holistic approach looking at the whole person and aims to find the root cause of the issue as opposed to only easing the symptoms. The initial consultation includes a general reflexology treatment which aims to balance all body systems. After your initial session, I will then draw up a personalised treatment plan to suit your individual needs which will be applied from the second treatment session onwards.
A holistic approach means treating the mind, body and soul, as a whole, in order to restore balance and improve general health and well-being. The benefits of reflexology include:

NEPIP is the scientific study of the relationship between our brain, our nervous system activities and their direct relationship with the endocrine system (via the hypothalamus) and how this affects our health via the immune system.
The NEPIP treatment routine was specifically developed to manage the body’s response to stress and is exclusive to Level 5 Reflexology Practitioners. The routine works on both feet simultaneously and uses a variety of techniques, some of which are stimulating and some are very light “linking” techniques. The NEPIP treatment balances the immune system, nervous system, endocrine system and limbic system, therefore working at both a physical and emotional level to mitigate the body’s response to stress.
The benefits of NEPIP, which include deep relaxation and balancing hormone levels, in particular adrenaline, in turn reduce the effects of stress on the mind, body and soul. In addition to alleviating symptoms of stress, NEPIP is used for managing possible stress-related pathologies such as sub-fertility, digestive disorders and mental health issues.
