"Prevention is better than cure" - Desiderius Erasmus
WHY HAVING REGULAR TREATMENT IS IMPORTANT:
People sometimes ask, if they are not unwell why would having reflexology be beneficial? The simple answer is prevention is better than cure!
Modern life, especially in busy cities can take its toll on our health.
Do any of these apply to you?
Your work is demanding or stressful or has long hours (or any combination)
You care for family members, whether children, elderly or sick relatives
You are training for a sports event or physical challenge
You don't get a lot of down time
You find it hard to relax
You carry a lot of responsibility
You feel like you never have enough time or are always in a rush
You often feel tired or overwhelmed
All the statements listed above are factors that can deplete your system and take a toll on your health. If you recognise one or more of the above as true for you, then having regular reflexology could help you to prevent health problems developing.
When we ask a lot of ourselves, we need to make sure we have the resources to keep on delivering. Just as you may have other regular things in place to look after your health such as exercise, taking vitamins or eating your 5-a-day, having a regular reflexology treatment can help keep you in good health to get on with what you love.
Waiting until you have a diagnosed health problem is more costly and time consuming and can have negative impact on many areas of your life:
may affect your performance at work and home
may require you take time off
may prevent you from pursuing your hobbies
may require medical intervention
may lead to other health problems
How reflexology can help:
Reflexology is a whole body treatment and can act as a mini-MOT to keep all your systems in balance. It is an opportunity to stop and recharge your batteries. Clients have reported many benefits:
Promote deep relaxation and better quality sleep
Counteract the effects of stress
Keep hormones in balance
Promote healthy digestion and elimination
Support your immune system
Relieve aches and pains
Improve overall energy
Feel more able to cope with life
THE ANNUAL REFLEXOLOGY PACKAGE
I have created this package to help you make an achievable and effective commitment to your wellbeing. It is more cost effective than paying for ad hoc sessions, includes a free guided relaxation download, free advice and support, and ensures you have regular treatment for a whole year.
Regular treatment brings the best results, however people don't always manage to achieve that. Over the years I have noticed two common scenarios:
clients who come for an intensive course of treatment when they feel run down and then, when they are feeling better, stop coming until they feel run down again.
clients who have the intention to come at regular intervals to maintain health but life takes over and they don't get round to it and so the treatment becomes very sporadic.
(I have been guilty of both myself so I do understand!)
Of course it would be lovely to have a session every week but that is not a realistic option for most people. Over the years I have found that monthly treatments provide the ideal balance of having enough treatment to maintain good health whilst being sustainable for your diary and wallet!
What you receive:
12 reflexology treatments in a 12 month period
Your 12th session is FREE
Flexibility to enable you to fit your sessions around other commitments
Feedback on areas of your health that may need attention
Practical, achievable lifestyle advice
Optional accountability check-ins to help you sustain changes
Ongoing support between sessions

A BIT ABOUT REFLEXOLOGY...
The feet have been seen as a gateway to healing the body for centuries in many areas of the globe and evidence of the therapeutic treatment of the feet has been found from as far back as 3000BC. The philosophy behind reflexology, as in many complementary therapies, is that illness is a result of blockages or restrictions in the flow of essential energy, otherwise known as chi or prana, around the body. These blockages can be caused by stress, upset, lifestyle and injury, causing a state of imbalance which can manifest as disorders, discomfort or disease.
The body however does have a tremendous ability to heal itself. By stimulating the reflexes on the feet, reflexology treatment helps the body to release these blockages and trigger healing responses thus improving overall well-being. Since reflexology treats the whole person, not simply the symptoms of disease, most people benefit from treatment. The therapy can bring relief to a wide range of acute and chronic conditions, and is suitable for all ages. There is no claim to cure as it is ultimately the client that heals him or herself. However, reflexology has a history of good results in treating many conditions and there is a growing body of research to evidence this.
