What is Reflexology?

garden roomReflexology is a complementary therapy based on the belief that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which are believed to correspond to all organs and parts of the body. Reflexology works on an individual basis and may alleviate and improve symptoms such as everyday stress and tension.

During a typical reflexology session I will take a detailed medical history. The treatment will be performed on the feet and the client will be asked to remove footwear and socks. I will make a visual and tactile examination of the area to be worked before beginning the precise reflexology massage movements. The particular types of movements involved require the application of appropriate pressure using the thumb and fingers.

Reflexology can be a wonderfully relaxing experience where you can take time out from everyday pressures. The treatment will help you relax which can help improve mood, aid sleep and relieve tension. The result is an overall sense of wellbeing.

REPRODUCTIVE REFLEXOLOGY

Reproflexology™ is a form of reflexology which concentrates on the well-being of each partner whilst trying to conceive.  Reproductive reflexology can be used as a stand-alone relaxation treatment or as a way to relax whilst under-going conventional treatments, such as Clomid, with fully medicated cycles of IUI, IVF, ICSI as well as with donor eggs.  As a member of the Association of Reproductive Reflexologists, I have been specially trained to work alongside medicated cycles using appropriate treatment protocols.  After a consultation with both partners, a treatment plan is implemented over a course of approximately 8 weeks, or in line with the treatment protocol during assisted conception.
