NORTHERN BEACHES REFLEXOLOGY
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 discovered 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 doctors 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 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 Clinical Reflexologist.
Since gaining my reflexology qualification with 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)
Bergman Method Zone Face Lift
Fertility Reflexology (Barbara Scott - Reproreflexology)
Maternity Reflexology (Sally Earlam Maternity Reflexology)
Baby Reflex (Baby Reflex UK Ltd)
Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage (Sally Kay)
Usui Reiki Level 1
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, Pre and Postnatal Reflexology 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
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.
PRE & POSTNATAL 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 (or Reproflexology™) can be used as a stand-alone treatment to enhance your natural fertility and
compliments assisted conception too.
Reproflexology helps to improve fertility and overall health by balancing hormones, reducing stress and restoring balance in the body.
It is suitable for men and women and both partners are encouraged to attend treatments as part of an overall holistic approach to improving fertility.
My role is to provide support both emotionally and physically during your journey to parenthood.
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)
WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
Michelle has been giving me treatments throughout my pregnancy and it’s been amazing. She is so warm and nurturing and she has the biggest heart. Her treatments and her whole approach is just wonderful. She’s even agreed to come to my house to continue my treatments once I have the baby to make it easier for me. Such a good soul and beautiful person inside out x
I started having reflexology with Michele last year to help regulate my hormones and my cycle and it worked a treat! I had previously seen just about every doctor or specialist there was. However through working with Michele, she was able to help me regain a regular period for the first time ever in my life. Particularly as I have struggled with my hormones all throughout my teenage years and into early adulthood. Her sessions are so relaxing and I always come away feeling amazing. Could not recommend Michele's services more highly! If you're considering giving reflexology a go it is definitely worthwhile.
Today I enjoyed my 5th treatment with Michele. Also today, I booked in a monthly treatment from now on! It’s deeply good: thorough, deliberate, expert. Michele’s beautiful therapy rooms and her gorgeous spirit make the whole experience feel like a warm embrace! Such an essential time-out for restoration – there’s nothing better - thanks Michele!
I would highly recommend Northern Beaches reflexology.
Michele is knowledgeable, warm and caring. She takes the time to understand what you want to get out of the session and tailored my treatments for my specific needs on the day.
The treatment itself is so relaxing that I drift in and out of sleep and I continue to feel the benefits of the treatment in the following days. Pure bliss.
Some things are difficult to describe & are best felt. I had never experienced reflexology as I was scared of the pain & my feet are ticklish. I couldn't have been more wrong. Through a series of treatments to get the body/system functioning more effectively to being in a maintenance stage now, Michele's knowledge, intuition, feel & manner mean my head is less foggy, toxins are excreted, my sense of well being is amplified & I feel capable. Yes capable. Michele has been able to blend reflexology with lymphatic drainage in a way that's non invasive & gentle. All of Michele's clients benefit from her continuing education, she is more than a reflexologist. Her interest in healing & energy systems is infectious. I very much look forward to my continuing relationship with Michele, she is part of my tool box now, just like good nutrition, meditation, exercise & good friends. Thank you Michele for changing careers & following your passion. Simone x
