Reflexology

Reflexology

Reflexology is a non-invasive complementary health therapy based on the idea that all organs and body systems are mirrored or ‘reflected’ onto the feet.  It follows the principle that congestion or tension in any part of the foot is mirrored in the corresponding part of the body.  Reflexology works to release this congestion and/or tension from working on the reflex points or within the zones that are painful, and also looking at the attitude of mind which creates these tender points.

A reflexology session can be effective in promoting deep relaxation and wellbeing, and therefore reducing stress in people’s lives.  This can be instrumental in optimising good health and building resilience.

Reflexology can be safely used alongside standard healthcare.

Back pain, neck pain, arthritis, depression, anxiety and stress are just some of the conditions reflexology may be able to provide relief from.

I qualified in Reflexology in 2007 with the West Australian School of Reflexology under the guidance (and tough love!!) of Lynn Hatswell.  I am also a Certified Foot Reading Practitioner.

My work is influenced by Lynn’s teachings (now retired)  and also Sam Belyea, Geraldine Villeneuve and Sally Kay.

Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD)

RLD is modelled on Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD).  It is performed on the feet and is tailored to the affected arm.  It differs according to the side that has been treated for breast cancer.

It is a less invasive technique than MLD, and clients are able to remain fully clothed, and I am not directly touching the groin or armpit area.

Approximately 20% of patients develop secondary lymphoedema following treatment for breast cancer.  RLD is not a cure, it is a form of management.

Research is continuing into this technique with early indications suggesting that RLD may be helpful for fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, migraine, coeliac, lipedema to name a few.

60 minute initial session $90 – Subsequent sessions (times vary) $80

90 minute session with pre & post limb measurements $110
