Reflexology can be used in many areas:
Anxiety & depression
I am a fully insured member of the Association of Reflexologists and qualified practitioner from the award winning Devon School of Reflexology.
I qualified with an ABC Level 3 Diploma in April 2017 and have since worked with clients with a wide range of health conditions in clinics or people's homes. And more recently in a clinical environment at Hospiscare's Searle House on the In-Patient Unit.
My love for reflexology stems from seeing it's benefits first hand when I started having treatments over a decade ago.
I found after treatments I slept deeply and woke feeling refreshed & less stressed. Since then I have been intrigued by the potential for complementary therapies to improve health on both a physical and emotional level.
I take a holistic approach to healthcare and believe reflexology can best work hand in hand with conventional medicine and self care to prevent illness, rather than trying to fix a problem once it has arisen.
There are many benefits reflexology can bring but I always encourage self-care techniques to sustain better health for longer.
I offer reflexology treatments at the Estuary Clinic in Topsham and mobile visits in your own home.

Reflexology is a safe and gentle therapy which uses a network of reflexes on the hands and feet to promote deep relaxation, improve sluggish circulation and boost the immune system, among other benefits.
In reflexology each part of the foot relates to a different part in the body including every organ, joint, muscle & gland.
By targeting specific reflexes and pressure points a reflexologist can locate areas of congestion in the feet and by using precise therapeutic techniques using the thumb and fingers can 'work the congestion out'. This can help restore balance in the body, improving overall health.
Our feet have thousands of nerve endings and one way reflexology may work is that the application of pressure to feet and hands sends a calming message from the peripheral nerves in them to the central nervous system, which in turn signals the body to adjust its stress levels. In this way, reflexology can have a positive impact on all systems of the body.
"If you're feeling out of kilter, don't know why or what about, let your feet reveal the answer, find the sore spot, work it out."
Eunice Ingham - The Mother of Reflexology
TREATMENTS & PRICES
After a thorough consultation you will be asked to remove shoes and socks and lie back on either a chair or couch.
Your feet will be cleaned with biodegradable wipes & you will receive a treatment to both feet (or hands) beginning with relaxation techniques to relax and boost circulation, followed by a treatment with varying degrees of pressure from light to firm.
I use a range of natural & organic products to suit every skin type and sensitivity.
At the end of the session I will offer some aftercare advice and explain the findings from the treatment.
After treatment there are a number of ways you might feel. You may be more energised, relaxed or sleepy. Each is normal and sometimes existing issues can flare up in the 24-48 hours afterwards. This is called the 'healing-crisis' and is a healthy response of the body in order to clear toxins and restore balance.
Initial consultation (75 minutes) - £55
Follow-up treatment (60 minutes) - £45
Depending on travel distance for home visits, prices can differ slightly
