MY ‘LIGHTBULB MOMENT’ – HOW IT ALL STARTED . . . .
Way back in 2001 I tried Reflexology as I was in a high pressure job and really stressed and suffering from a few stress related ailments. The benefits in terms of better sleep, deep relaxation and feeling more balanced, for me, happened at that very first appointment. Reflexology really fascinated me and I was keen to learn more. The principle behind Reflexology is that the organs, glands and systems of the body are reflected in miniature on the hands and feet, so by using a pressure point technique, a state of better balance can often be achieved. It is a holistic therapy, which means it treats you as a whole – mind, body and spirit and also works alongside any other therapies or medication so is truly complementary. That first reflexology session blew me away, so I had more and then I wanted to learn more. So I spent around 9 months studying evenings and weekends. In fact every spare moment around my stressful full time job. I found an amazing teacher and did my Reflexology Diploma and Anatomy & Physiology Certificate with the IEB, which involved masses of coursework, reading, case studies and examinations (3 hour written exams for both A&P and Reflexology and a 90min practical exam for Reflexology). I was delighted when I heard that I had passed these with a Distinction – the highest grade I could have achieved. These were the first exams I had done for about 12 years so you can imagine I was really pleased. I always knew I wanted to be self employed, however, until I discovered Reflexology I had not known how I would achieve that and what I would do. Reflexology literally changed my life for the better !!! 😄 I love my job and now I can help others feel better too, for which I am very grateful.

SHOULDERS LIKE BOULDERS ?!?!
At just £20 for a half hour appointment, this is the perfect antidote to a busy and stressful lifestyle.
This seated upper body (back/neck/shoulders) massage is perfect to fit into a busy day. No oil is used as the massage is done through light clothing. Some people find the more upright position helpful, particularly if they have lower back issues. Chair Massage is ideal for anyone with a desk or driving job.
These clinics are very popular and are often fully booked. If you’d like to enquire whether there is a space please text Hayley on 07774 951282. For more details on the benefits click here Chair Massage
