Reflexology is a non-invasive complementary therapy that aims to support your health and wellbeing through therapeutic touch.
The theory of Reflexology is that there are reflex points on the hands, feet, face and ears that correspond to all the organs and systems of the body. By stimulating the reflexes it encourages the body to release any imbalances and restore homeostasis.
What is reflexology?
The benefits of Reflexology include
* Improved mood
* Release of tension
* Aids sleep
* Promotes wellbeing
In addition to being a great way to improve general health, there have been developments in Reflexology in recent years focusing on specific health issues with very exciting results.
Reflexology Lymph Drainage is the work of Sally Kay. This technique focuses on stimulating the lymphatic reflexes thereby causing an effect on the lymphatic system in the body. It was primarily developed to help women who were suffering with lymphoedema of the arm following treatment for breast cancer and is supported by research.

I was lucky enough to be trained by Sally a few years ago and I am passionate about the benefits RLD can bring.
Developing specific reflexology protocols to support couples who are trying to conceive is the work of Barbara Scott of Seren Natural Fertility. I trained with Barbara in Reproflexology so am confident in working with couples who are trying to conceive whether that be naturally or by assisted methods like IVF / ICSI.
Reflexology is a complementary therapy which should be used alongside conventional medicine. Please consult your GP if you have any health concerns.
