Specialist Reflexology and Massage Treatments Adapted to You
I am a professional reflexologist and Indian head massage therapist operating in the West Hampstead and Watford area. My treatment is suitable for clients seeking relief from joint issues, degenerative disorders, hormonal or pregnancy issues, or those who simply wish to feel better or need a space to destress and relax. I qualified as a clinical practitioner nearly 10 years ago and offer a range of different treatments such as lymphatic drainage reflexology, spinal reflexology, and pregnancy/menopause reflexology, among other specialist treatments.
Each service is always adapted to client needs. See below for a more detailed breakdown of the services I provide, from spinal reflexology to Indian head massages.
Approximately 20% of breast cancer patients develop secondary lymphoedema, which is swelling caused by fluid retention and occurs most commonly in the arms and legs. Through using specialist reflexology techniques based on clinical research of patients suffering from cancer, I will stimulate the lymphatic system to assist with the drainage of fluid, helping clients feel more energised and more like themselves. This is a “light” treatment. Depending on the symptoms, it can be conducted as a standalone specialist service or as part of a general reflexology treatment.
By releasing tension and facilitating relaxation, reflexology can help you and your partner conceive in a natural way. Cortisol, the stress hormone, can inhibit the production of follicle stimulating hormones and luteinising hormones, which are integral to the release of the egg and the implantation of the embryo. Bringing your body back to a state of homeostasis allows for these hormones to develop as they should, thereby increasing the chances of conception. I also work with a number of pregnant women who use reflexology as a chance to focus purely on themselves and their baby – some crucial “me time” that allows them to properly unwind, along with receiving help for issues like swelling, morning sickness, back pain, and other associated issues if needed.
A specialist form of reflexology that corrects imbalances in organs and systems around the body. I will work the spinal reflexes on your feet to find areas that are more sensitive and alleviate areas of congestion. If you are feeling some sensitivity in your spine but don’t generally have back problems, this treatment finds the particular reflexes that are out of sync and restores them to their natural equilibrium. A variety of different techniques and pressures are used, depending on the specific requirements of each client.
Facial reflexology operates along the same principles as foot and hand reflexology, with reflex points on the face stimulated to restore the natural flow of energy throughout the body and boost circulation. This is a non-invasive, deeply relaxing treatment that can help with issues like stress, insomnia, sinus issues, headaches/migraines, among other issues. It also leaves your skin looking more radiant and vibrant, giving your face a wonderful glow and reducing lines and wrinkles.
My Indian head massage service releases stress and tension and increases mobility in the head, shoulders, and neck area. Taking an Ayurvedic approach that balances the mind, body, and spirit, this service is geared towards boosting circulation and removing toxins from the body. It can provide relief for headaches, insomnia, bruxism, eyestrain, and sinus congestion, along with hair loss, thinning, or alopecia. Even if you don’t have a specific issue you require help with, an Indian head massage gives you greater clarity and leaves you feeling lighter on your feet.
I am passionate about working with young people, including infants, in order to open them up to a holistic way of dealing with stress or illness. Children are exposed to all kinds of medication too quickly, and practicing reflexology encourages them to view themselves and their wellbeing in a different, healthier way. I can also give parents some simple foot reflexology techniques to use at home with babies having stomach or sleep issues.
