Women's health

Working with my clients on their journey through womanhood is something I'm hugely passionate about, and privileged to be part of. Reflexology is a safe, natural therapy that helps support my female clients, from the onset of menstruation right through to the post menopause period.

I believe that womanhood should be celebrated and respected, and we should rightly feel empowered by all the positives that being female brings. As Martie Haselton, professor of psychology at UCLA puts it: "Women’s hormones contain a hidden “intelligence” that women can use to make the best decisions in their lives." She argues against the old stereotypes that hormonal experiences such as PMS and menopause are problems to be fixed, or illnesses to be cured. 

However, as much as we need hormones to function, they do bamboozle us sometimes! Stress – and the unique pressures women often face – can play a big part in hormone imbalance. Reflexology promotes our bodies' vital 'rest and digest' response to help bring about balance. Reflexology also helps to promote blood flow to our whole body, including our endocrine system, which can be compromised by illness and modern lifestyles. As reflexology is an holistic therapy I work with my female clients to look at all aspects of their lives. There are many things that we can cover, with sensitivity and warmth, to enable you to take better control of your physical and mental health, helping you become more intune with your amazing female body.

I trained in Reflexology for Women's Health with Hagar Basis of the Reflexology Academy, one of the UK’s most established reflexology practitioners and trainers. During every treatment I apply specific reflexology techniques to help support you with whatever you need. Common issues include: PMT, painful/heavy periods; irregular/lack of periods; endometriosis; fibroids; UTIs; hormonal imbalance; in/fertility; pregnancy; labour and birth; the postnatal period; breastfeeding; peri-menopause; menopause; mental health, and; emotional well-being.
