NORTHERN BEACHES REFLEXOLOGY

 

YOUR THERAPIST

Hello, I'm Michele and I'm passionate about reflexology and how it can make a positive difference to the way we feel, physically, mentally and emotionally, whatever our level of health and well-being. 

Experiencing fertility complications whilst trying to conceive my partner and I turned to natural healing methods alongside IVF and it was whilst on the journey to motherhood I found Reflexology. 

 

The care, compassion and the positive impact on both my physical and mental well being was profound and I truly believe that I can give thanks to both my reflexologist and doctor for the gift we were given back in 2013, our son Oli. 

 

When it was time for Oli to go to pre-school and thoughts of going back to work were in my mind I remembered how much I had gained from the natural therapy of reflexology so decided to leave behind my old corporate world and use my love and enthusiasm for reflexology to help others in the community by becoming a reflexologist. 


Since gaining my reflexology qualification with the prestigious Sydney School of Reflexology under the expert guidance of Irene Tasho I have gone on to acquire further advanced reflexology training and qualifications in the following areas :-

Bergman Method Facial Reflexology (Level 1 & 2)

Fertility Reflexology (Barbara Scott - Reproreflexology)

Maternity Reflexology (Sally Earlam Maternity Reflexology)

Baby Reflex Classes (Baby Reflex UK Ltd)

Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage (Sally Kay) 

I’m a healer with a gentle, calm approach, and I’m dedicated to helping my clients move through a wide range of physical, emotional, and spiritual transitions in the most efficient way possible.

I have a special interest in women's health in particular Fertility, Pregnancy and Menopause however very happy to treat the whole family.

I love the whole world of natural therapies and reflexology and I invite you to come on a journey with me to heal your body and mind. x

 

ABOUT REFLEXOLOGY

Clinical Reflexology is a non-invasive, holistic therapy that enables your body to heal in a relaxing, rejuvenating and therapeutic way. Releasing tension often brought about by stressful situations, restoring energy levels, and improving sleep, helping you to feel emotionally and physically stronger.


By applying pressure to reflexes I'm able to detect any imbalances which may be as a result of stress, illness or injury.  Working reflexes in a very specific way helps to initiate a beneficial response in a corresponding area of the body, incorporating acupressure points and advanced techniques to encourage your body to achieve 'homeostasis'.

All the systems of the body are covered on the feet, musculoskeletal, respiratory, digestive, urinary, endocrine, nervous, and lymphatic and whilst being very good for many conditions it is also a deeply relaxing treatment and many clients fall asleep during their treatment.

Reflexology pressure can range from a feather like touch, ideal for babies and those with extremely sensitive feet, to a firm pressure for individuals who prefer a much deeper treatment.

To find out more about reflexology, please watch the video produced by the Association of Reflexologists "What is Reflexology", which gives a short introduction.

 

TREATMENTS

MATERNITY REFLEXOLOGY

During pregnancy, you go through significant changes that will affect the emotional, hormonal and physiological balance of your body.

 

Reflexology can help to alleviate discomfort arising from this imbalance and restore the body’s natural state of well-being and prepare you for labour and birth. 

 

During pregnancy regular treatments provide time for intense relaxation, this is beneficial for both you and your baby and can help with the following pregnancy conditions

Nausea & Morning Sickness 

Insomnia & Sleep Issues

Relief of Stress & Anxiety 

Swelling of feet and ankles

Digestive Issues - Constipation, Heartburn, etc

Backache & sciatica

 

CLINICAL FOOT REFLEXOLOGY

Since Reflexology treats the whole person, not the symptoms of disease, most people benefit from reflexology.

 

The therapy brings relief to a wide range of acute and chronic conditions as well as reducing the stresses and strains of everyday life, revitalising energy levels and it’s suitable for all ages.

 

Alternatively it can simply be an hour of ‘me’ time in your busy day, allowing you time to switch off and simply enjoy the sense of relaxation and natural feelings of wellbeing.

Foot reflexology is beneficial for just some of the following:-

Stress. IBS. Back pain. Digestive disorders. Headaches. Insomnia, Energy levels, Menopause & many more conditions.

REPRODUCTIVE REFLEXOLOGY 

Reproductive Reflexology (or Reproflexology™) can be used as a stand-alone treatment to enhance your natural fertility

If you are trying to conceive naturally, Reproductive Reflexology can help to

  • Regulate your menstrual cycle

  • Stimulate ovulation by working the reflexes associated with the reproductive system

  • Balance hormones by working the Endocrine System

  • Assist your body with the removal of toxins by working on the liver and small intestine reflexes

  • Holistically support you if you are going through IVF or Donor Insemination

  • Assist with painful periods

  • Relieve the symptoms of common hormonal conditions

  • Give you a well deserved break from the worry and stress of infertility which then provides an ideal environment for conception to occur.

 
Lending a Helping Hand

HAND REFLEXOLOGY

Hand Reflexology is equally as effective as foot reflexology.  There are reflex points on the hands that correspond to every organ, gland and part of the body and by using the unique thumb and finger techniques on these reflexes, the body responds by relaxing, balancing and improving blood circulation.

The hands are not as sensitive as the feet and the reflex points are much deeper, however a hand reflexology treatment can be extremely beneficial.

Hand reflexology can be used at the start or end of a traditional foot reflexology treatment, or as a stand-alone treatment in its own right. It is particularly useful to use when a foot is injured or where a client is unable to elevate their leg.

 

It may also be used for self-help and I often give clients hand reflexology homework in order that they can use reflexology techniques in-between appointments.

FACIAL REFLEXOLOGY

The Bergan Method of Facial Reflexology is built on a combination of a deeply restorative treatment focusing on Reflex pressure points on the face, which help stimulate the body's healing mechanisms and help to also improve circulation and nerve conduction encouraging the release of toxins from the body via the lymphatic system.

Facial Reflexology combines all of the therapeutic benefits of a holistic therapy with a touch of beautifying luxury! Clients often feel an inner calm and a real sense of wellbeing at the end of a treatment, as well as a more youthful, glowing complexion.

Facial Reflexology achieves this by improving blood and lymph flow, releasing muscle tension and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.

 

It is also very effective for alleviating ailments such as blocked sinuses, dry skin, headaches, lack of energy, dull complexion, and depression; as this therapy helps the body to work at its optimum level, boosting the immune system it can also help to fight off winter colds and flu.  During the spring and summer months it is particularly effective in alleviating hay fever symptoms and allergies.

REFLEXOLOGY LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE (RLD)

Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage (RLD) is award winning reflexology technique developed by Sally Kay BSc(Hons), which focuses on stimulating the lymphatic reflexes on the feet. (Unlike Manual Lymph Drainage there is no need for the client to disrobe, only socks and shoes need to be removed)

 

Although initially, developed whilst working in Cancer Care, to help with lymphoedema, further evidence suggests RLD is useful for the following auto-immune disorders

Lymphoedema elsewhere in the body

Arthritis & Rheumatoid Arthritis

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)
