Reflexology is a natural therapy that stimulates your body's own healing powers. It takes a small part of your body, either the feet, face, hands, or ears, to represent your whole body. Different techniques are applied to reflexes corresponding to each organ, gland and all other parts of your body.
Reflexology is beneficial for people of all ages and of all levels of health. It is safe to use on it's own or in conjunction with conventional medical treatments. There is increasing evidence that Reflexology is helpful in managing pain, particularly with the use of Nerve Reflexology.
Many couples are now turning to Reflexology to assist with fertility issues and to support them through pregnancy and beyond.
Benefits of Reflexology can include:
Facial Reflexology is a gentle, calming, and therapeutic treatment. It follows the same principles as other forms of Reflexology in that it takes your face to represent your whole body. Using gentle techniques to stimulate the reflexes on you face, your nervous system calms and gives you the opportunity to come into balance. The proximity of the brain and the sensory organs to the face makes this a beautifully relaxing and effective treatment. It can be particularly beneficial for people with headaches, migraines, anxiety, sinus issues, bruxism, or bell’s palsy.
You may notice your skin looking smoother, healthier, and more vibrant after a treatment and as your facial muscles relax it can lift the face naturally.
The combination of Facial Reflexology, Japanese facelift massage, and Gua Sha tools makes this a deeply relaxing treatment, which can make you feel good on the inside and look your best on the outside.
This amazing treatment boosts circulation, increases collagen production, lifts and tones sagging skin, softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and gives the skin a radiant glow.
Zone face lift is a natural and toxin free method of ageing well, which replaces the need for Botox or fillers. Great results can be seen in some people after one session, however it is recommended to have 12 weekly sessions to get the best results.
Fertility Reflexology is for both men and women no matter where they are on their fertility journey. It can be used on its own to enhance your natural fertility or alongside all forms of assisted conception including Clomid, IUI, IVF, and ICSI. It can also be used to support individuals and couples using surrogacy or donors in IVF cycles.
Reflexology works in a number of ways to enhance fertility. It is well known for its ability to relax and reduce stress levels. Menstrual cycles become regulated. Any medical conditions present need to be resolved on a physical level in conjunction with medical advice. Consideration will also be taken of any emotional factors that may be affecting fertility.
Specific and structured protocols are used according to where you are in your cycle or assisted fertility treatment and there are specific protocols for men too. Menstrual cycle charting and medical testing are used to measure improvements.
Pregnancy brings great changes physically and emotionally. Reflexology can naturally support the changes you may experience during this special time. Many women have found relief from symptoms such as morning sickness, heart burn, and back pain from using Reflexology.
Empiric knowledge and research studies have demonstrated that those women receiving regular reflexology during pregnancy have better pregnancies and the duration of their birthing is shorter with less intervention.
Reflexology is also a great way to help prepare both partners for conception, the pregnancy, and the birth. Once your baby has arrived Reflexology can also assist you in getting back into balance.

Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage (RLD) aims to encourages the fluid in the lymph system to flow effectively. Using gentle and flowing movements, it a very enjoyable treatment. It works in a similar way to Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD), but instead of working on your whole body it focuses on the reflexes on the feet. RLD may be helpful for people with the following conditions:
Ear reflexology, also referred to as Auricular Therapy, uses pressure applied to the outer ear to encourage your body to change and come into balance. Firm yet gentle pressure is applied using fingers and thumbs. When required, ear seeds may be applied to specific points, which will exert a gentle pressure, and will help you locate points to work in between appointments. The close proximity of the brain to the ear and the nerve endings found in the ear make this a very effective therapy for reducing pain, especially facial pain.
Nerve Reflexology is a specialized branch of Reflexology that is particularly useful in managing both acute and chronic pain. Points that have been accurately located on the feet correspond to different nerves in the body. There are reflex points covering all areas of the nervous system including nerves to muscles and ligaments, organs, the hormonal system, and certain areas of the brain. The principle is that by applying static pressure to these reflex points, the hypersensitivity of the nerve is reduced and normalized.
The types of pain that often respond well to this work are
Classical Reflexology is often used in conjunction with Nerve Reflexology when working with people with a variety of conditions such as pain, digestive issues, stress and anxiety.
