What is Reflexology?
The Association of Reflexologists states that:
"Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points of the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body. Reflexologists work holistically with their clients and aim to work alongside allopathic healthcare to promote better health for their clients".
As a Reflexologist I believe by stimulating pressure points on the foot, hands or face is a great treatment for relaxation helping to deal with the stresses in life and support healing and restore balance within the body . Stress is one of the leading contributing factors to many health issues, difficulties in conceiving and pregnancy. Reflexology can help reduce stress through relaxation.

It is inspiring to be trained by Ziggie Bergman who was mentioned in a recent Daily Mail article (see link below). As with foot reflexology there are points on the face which can aid improvements in sleep, relaxation and well being, with an added bonus of improving the client's complexion. I use my fingers to massage these points using oils and specific pressures.
I use facial oils to help improve the skin as well as smelling fantastic. If you have a sensitive skin and concerned you can have a skin patch test before the full treatment.

As a professional I am required to follow a programme of "Continual Development" to ensure that I am informed regarding current practices. Recently I have studied children's feet and currently completing a module on dermatology. My studies also include discussing treatments with other Foot professions such as for fungal nail and verrucae. As a Tropic Skincare Ambassador I am aware of the importance of the products we use on our bodies as well as what we eat. I decided to train to be able to offer my clients a cleansing facials with the added benefit of 20 minutes facial reflexology.
