Reflexology can be used for relaxation and pampering, allowing you to ease away the strains and stresses of modern daily life and reclaim some precious 'me time'. However, more than a simple " hand or foot rub", it is a safe complementary therapy, which aims to promote better physical and mental balance and wellbeing by encouraging the body to heal itself and by calming and soothing the mind. A tailored treatment plan, bespoke for each individual, targets specific reflexes on the hands or feet; it can help relieve energetic blockages in the body and allow the corresponding muscles, tissues and organs to optimise their function with cumulative effects.
Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD) is an award-winning reflexology technique which focuses on stimulating the lymphatic reflexes on the feet or the hands. The aim is to cause an effect on the lymphatic system in the body. It is a unique sequence that has been researched and developed by Sally Kay BSc(Hons), whilst working in Cancer Care”. RLD is based on stimulating the flow of lymph and helping drain any extra fluid retention build up within the body. This technique was part of a clinical research based on helping people affected with secondary lymphoedema linked to the removal or damage of lymph nodes either following surgery, radiotherapy or cancer treatment. This is an incredibly helpful tool as more people are living with this debilitating side effect for which there is currently no cure. It has now since been found to also help with people affected by primary lymphoedema, lipoedema and auto-immune diseases, as it reduces the level of inflammation, removes the waste from the body and provides a fresh flow of new lymph. This therapeutic treatment can also help boost our immune system which tends to slow down as we get older. Current findings suggest RLD may be useful with the following conditions : arthritis, asthma, eczema, chronic fatigue/ME, fibromyalgia, sinus problems, migraines, headaches, muscular tension, aches and pains, premenstrual syndrome. Reiki stands for "Universal Life Force" and is a technique for relaxation that also promotes healing. A warm and soothing energy flows to the client, promoting relaxation, releasing tension, stress, anxiety while bringing a sense of wholeness and balance. Originally from Japan, it is usually a hands off therapy done with hands raised above the body. Gentle touch may also be used to restore the balance of energy within the body, unblocking and allowing energy to flow to where it is required. As a qualified Usui Holy Fire® III Reiki Master Teacher, a Reiki session can also be given over distance and time zones allowing for more flexibility and convenience.

HEARTS Process (Hands-on, Empathy, Aromas, Relaxation, Textures, Sound) draws on a range of natural skills and sensory experiences which can be used in any combination for people who are anxious, in pain, unable to sleep or recovering from an illness. Hearts always includes physical contact given through fabric of some kind and the client remains fully clothed. It was designed to be used where conventional massage techniques were inappropriate or in any situation where well intentioned touch could be beneficial. It was devised as a bridge to the limitations given by some of the health issues of cancer care or palliative care patients which may rule out the use of some complementary therapies and allows to achieve a state of relaxation and calm as quickly and easily as possible.
