I’m a fully insured ‘student’ member of the Association of Reflexology due to qualify in September 2017. I’ve been working in the City, mainly for Investment Banks for the past 25 years and I ‘ve seen first-hand how stress & anxiety has a negative effects on our bodies & lives. This coupled with a deep desire to transition out of the city and find a job that fascinates me was my reason for choosing to study Reflexology.
Whilst on a beautiful yoga retreat in Turkey in 2016, I found the space to take a look at my life and I decided to take the plunge and change my career direction and I started studying in Dec 2016. Reflexology for me, is one of the most divine holistic treatments. My aim for practicing reflexology is to provide high quality holistic treatments to help reduce anxiety & stress related illnesses in a calm and relaxing environment, which may enhance wellbeing & quality of life.
Reflexology is a wonderfully relaxing holistic therapy. There are reflex areas in the feet and hands which a reflexologist uses to help the rest of the body rebalance, and relax. Many people think that reflexology is just a nice foot massage. In theory by working these reflex points on the feet, we are able to assist the body in its own healing. Studies have shown the powerful effect of touch on measurably reducing cortisol levels which is why this treatment is so fantastic for lowering stress and allowing the body to return to homeostasis.
