Reflexology is a non-invasive complementary health therapy that can help to promote deep relaxation and wellbeing by reducing stress & helping the body to return to a state of equilibrium or homeostasis. It is a touch therapy that is based on the theory that specific points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas, organs & systems of the body. It can be used safely alongside standard healthcare to promote better health but is not an alternative to medical treatment and it is not diagnostic.

Karen offers the following treatments:
FOOT REFLEXOLOGY: GENERAL TREATMENT
The whole foot gets worked during every treatment by stimulating the reflexes (specific points on the feet) to trigger a relaxation response in the body. The treatment is aimed at restoring & rebalancing the body. It is incredibly relaxing and helps to calm the body & mind.
REFLEXOLOGY FOR SPORT
Reflexology can have a positive impact on an athlete’s performance and physical & emotional health by assisting in the recovery process, helping to reduce pain and encouraging overall relaxation.
Maternity reflexology supports mother & baby during this special time by providing a space where the mother can focus on taking some time for herself. Maternity reflexology encourages deep relaxation, reduces anxiety & feelings of stress and helps to improve quality of sleep.
The science bit……..some published research:
2 studies have shown that reflexology in pregnancy significantly reduced pain during labour & reduced the length of the first stage of labour
One study has shown reduced pain & stress levels during labour for women with low back pain or pelvic girdle pain
ADVANCED FACIAL REFLEXOLOGY
Facial reflexology focuses on reflex points on the face which helps to stimulate the body’s innate healing mechanisms with the additional benefit of more radiant, firmer skin & a glowing complexion. Other benefits include a wonderful sense of calmness & relaxation & it can help relieve sinusitis/congestion and headaches.
If you are currently undergoing medical treatment or you have medical issues associated with pregnancy, you must consult with your medical / health professional regarding the suitability of attending a reflexology treatment.
