Reflexology, also known as zone therapy,is based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower legs or hands correspond to different points on the body. A ‘map of the entire body’ is formed on the feet, therefore, a reflexology treatment can treat the whole body holistically,
Applying pressure to the feet works on the energy flow in the meridians and zones throughout the body, helping to break up energy blockages around corresponding parts of the body. This allows the free flow of energy, improving circulation and supporting the body find its natural balance. A reflexology treatment is deeply relaxing leading to improved health and wellbeing. It is a safe treatment that can be used alongside conventional medical treatment helping to facilitate healing.
A reflexology treatment is non invasive and has been shown to provide relief in a number of disorders including stress and anxiety, digestive problems, migraine, back problems and insomnia.

Seated acupressure massage
Seated acupressure is based on the traditional Japanese massage known as anma, which basically means ‘press and rub’. The treatment stimulates the pressure points in the head, neck, shoulders and upper and lower back. Unlike acupuncture, we do not use needles and you remain fully clothed therefore the treatment is non invasive. I use my hands and elbows to stimulate the energy points along meridian or energy lines in the body following a specific sequence of movements known as a Kata. These movements improve energy flow helping to balance and strength the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems.
The client sits fully dressed facing forward in a specially ergonomically designed massage chair resting the head and shoulder on a padded platform while I carry out the movements. The whole sequence takes around 20 minutes from start to finish and leaves the client feeling refreshed and energised yet relaxed.
As the treatment is quite short, it is ideal to fit into a lunch time and I do offer the service to businesses. I bring my own massage chair and carry out the treatment in a private room on your business premises. The treatment has been shown to help relieve stress, headaches and aches and pains from, for example, sitting at the computer for long periods of time. Oils can be used if you prefer when I can incorporate aromatherapy using oils to relax or uplift for example. This would need to be applied to skin however so you would need to remove your shirt or jumper for example. Also be aware you may be a little ‘oily’ afterwards although this could be kept to a minimum.
If you are interested in me coming into your business, contact me for a free trial and see how seated acupressure can help your workforce.
