There are 67 reflex points on each foot and when pressure is applied to an area corresponding with a part of the body where an imbalance exists, it will feel tender. Crystal deposits under the skin may be detected at this reflex point also. These sensations will subside as the condition becomes treated.
You can benefit by having a one-off treatment, a monthly ‘service’ or more regular treatments for an acute or chronic condition.
Each treatment lasts 50 minutes, unless it is your first, in which case a 30 minute consultation will be added.
A PRESENTING CONDITION
After an initial consultation, a treatment plan will be put together consisting of all the areas of the body that may be affecting your disorder. Even though it is important to work on all areas of the body to achieve optimum health throughout, more emphasis will be applied to these particular areas. The pressure will be tailored to your needs and desire throughout the treatment.
Depending on the condition being treated and it’s severity, the number of treatment sessions required will vary. This will be discussed at your first treatment. Some people also choose to have ‘top ups’ to keep the condition at bay.
Treat yourself anytime to a pampering treatment when feeling stressed, overworked or just feeling sluggish. You will feel the difference and your skin will glow. You will receive your treatments in a reclining chair with a view of the garden in an oasis of calm.
Reflexology can help with the following conditions to name but a few:
- aches and pains
- back pain
- bad digestion, incl. constipation, IBS, flatulence
- colds and flu
- hormone imbalance
- skin complaints, incl. eczema, psoriasis, acne
- sore throats
However, you don’t need to have a ‘condition’ to enjoy the harmonising effects that reflexology can give. The benefits include the following:
- creating a feeling of well-being and optimum health
- improved circulation
- hormone balance
- removal of toxins from the body
- pain relief
- assisted healing, esp. effective post op.
- improved muscle tone and relaxation
- manipulation of the feet (or hands) for ease of joints, muscles, ligaments etc.
- nerve stimulation
- psychological comfort
- assisting conception
- providing comfort during pregnancy and preparing for a natural birth
- balance of mind, body and spirit
Because reflexology is a natural, non-invasive treatment it is wonderful to help on many different levels to encourage conception, to help maintain a stress and problem free pregnancy, to help induce the birth of the baby without the use of drugs when the time is right, and to help a new mum get her body back to normal after the birth.
The Association of Reflexologists indicates that over 50% of clients seeking reflexology in connection with conception find themselves pregnant within six months.
First and foremost, to conceive, it is vital for your body to be as relaxed and stress-free as possible. Reflexology can achieve this and can also give all the parts of the body that play an important role in conception a ‘kick-start’. Energy pathways can be unblocked and any imbalances that lead to problems of infertility can be corrected.
The satisfaction of knowing that reflexology is harmonising your body, mind and spirit to help create a healthy pregnancy can alone help prepare yourself mentally for such an exciting, yet sometimes daunting life experience.
If you are undergoing fertitlity treatment, reflexology can hugely compliment this procedure by naturally helping to rebalance the hormonal effect of taking fertility drugs. It can also help support you physically and mentally through what can be quite a stressful process.
Lead up to the Birth
Reflexology during pregnancy is wonderful! Not only do you greatly gain from the effects, but your baby does too.
Your body is undergoing all sorts of changes during pregnancy and reflexology can help the body to cope with the following:
- Acid Reflux
- Constipation and other digestion problems
- Hormone imbalance
- High blood pressure
- Morning sickness
- Stress and anxiety
- Water retention
Studies have shown that having weekly reflexology treatments starting at least 6 weeks before your due date can decrease :-
- the length of labour
- the need for strong pain relief
- the likelihood of tearing during the birth.
Reflexology is becoming more commonly used within the NHS, especially in maternity units as a well established, respected and effective therapy.
Reflexology is a wonderfully relaxing and supportive treatment for women after giving birth. It can help with:
- Calming and relaxing mother and baby when sleep is erratic
- Hormonal imbalances
- Increasing energy levels
- Kick-starting the body (and metabolism) into regaining its pre-pregnancy shape
- Maintaining and increasing milk supply
- Pain relief
When Christina and her husband adopted their two gorgeous twin daughters from China in 2005, she decided to put her Wedding Dress business of 13 years on hold to spend more time with them and to be at home more.
Having always been fascinated by reflexology, having enjoyed many treatments herself, she decided it would be an amazing skill to literally have at the end of her finger-tips to use on her daughters. When she qualified with distinction she knew she’d found another calling!. Christina has since established a steady and loyal client base, all enjoying the benefits of her professional, skilful and caring approach!
“Even after designing dream dresses for brides there is nothing more rewarding than helping people to feel better in mind, body and spirit!”
“I had a wonderful experience throughout my reflexology sessions with Christina. Christina provided a calm haven for my weekly hour of bliss, which as a busy Mum of two was a very welcome. She listened to all my ailments patiently and applied them very well, discussing throughout what she was doing as I was really interested in understanding about the treatment. She also really helped with a bout of insomnia I was experiencing and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an hour of pampering or to assist with specific ailments.”
“Christina’s work is healing on many levels – feet, body, mind and spirit. She invites you into her generous world of energy and gives away with her heart. Plus it just feels bloody good and is really relaxing!”

“J’apprécie énormément toute l’expérience de mes séances de réflexologie avec Christina! C’est tellement indulgent d’avoir les pieds debout pendant une heure, après quoi je me sens totalement détendu ou vraiment plein d’énergie en fonction de ce dont mon corps a manifestement besoin. Je pars toujours avec le sentiment que je ne peux pas attendre mon prochain traitement!”
“I had a whole series of reflexology sessions with Christina. She approached each and every one of them with extreme care and professionalism. Not only does she provide a very warm and welcoming setting for her treatment, she also ensures that it is hugely relaxing. I used to really look forward to my next session – and always felt like I was almost “floating” when I left (Christina always having successfully diagnosed any current ailments). I couldn’t recommend her more highly.”
