Reflexology is the holistic understanding, study and practice of treating points and areas in the feet and hands that relate to corresponding parts of the body. Using precise hand and finger techniques, a reflexologist may improve circulaton, induce relaxation and enable homeostatsis. This encourages the person’s own healing systems to be activated to maintain wellbeing. Reflexology is suitable for all ages and may bring relief from a wide range of acute and chronic conditions. After you have completed a course of reflexology treatment for a specific condition, many people find it beneficial to continue with regular treatments in order to maintain health and well-being.

Research demostrates Acupuncture’s effectiveness for a wide range of conditions, inc.

Acupuncture stimulates the nerves in skin and muscle, and can produce a variety of effects. We know that it increases the body’s release of natural painkillers – endorphin and serotonin – in the pain pathways of both the spinal cord and the brain. This modifies the way pain signals are received.
But acupuncture does much more than reduce pain, and has a beneficial effect on health. Patients often notice an improved sense of wellbeing after treatment.
Modern research shows that acupuncture can affect most of the body’s systems – the nervous system, muscle tone, hormone outputs, circulation, antibody production and allergic responses, as well as the respiratory, digestive, urinary and reproductive systems.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine needles into various points in the body depending on the condition being treated. The duration of treatment depends on the nature of the problem. The number of needles varies but may only be two or three. Acupuncture may be used in conjunction with other treatment techniques such as manual therapy, therapeutic exercise and more.

Counselling is a type of talking therapy that allows a person to talk about their problems and feelings in a confidential and dependable environment.
A counsellor is trained to listen with empathy (by putting themselves in your shoes). They can help you deal with any negative thoughts and feelings that you have.
Sometimes, the term ‘counselling’ is used to refer to talking therapies in general, but counselling is also a specific type of therapy in its own right.
Talking therapies, such as counselling, can be used to treat many different health conditions including:
- borderline personality disorder (BPD)
- obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
- post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- long-term illnesses
- eating disorders, such as anorexia nervosaand bulimia
- drug misuse
How can counselling help?
Counselling aims to help you deal with and overcome issues that are causing pain or making you feel uncomfortable.
It can provide a safe and regular space for you to talk and explore difficult feelings. The counsellor is there to support you and respect your views. They will not usually give advice, but will help you to find your own insight and understanding of your problems.
Counselling can help you to:
- cope with a bereavement or relationship breakdown
- cope with redundancy or work-related stress
- explore issues such as sexual identity
- deal with issues that are preventing you from achieving your ambitions
- deal with feelings of depression or sadness, and have a more positive outlook on life
- understand yourself and your problems better
- feel more confident
- develop a better understanding of other people’s points of view
Counselling can often involve talking about difficult or painful feelings and, as you begin to face them, you may feel worse in some ways. However, with the help and support of your therapist, you should gradually start to feel better.
In most cases, it takes a number of sessions before the counselling starts to make a difference, and a regular commitment is required to make the best use of the therapy.
What to expect from counselling
During your counselling sessions, you will be encouraged to express your feelings and emotions freely. By discussing your concerns with you, the counsellor can help you to gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes, as well as identifying ways of finding your own solutions to problems.
The counsellor may encourage you to identify issues and, if appropriate, take personal responsibility for them. They will be able to help you recognise the effects of other people and their actions, and explore alternative ways of coping with them.
It can be a great relief to share your worries and fears with someone who acknowledges your feelings and is able to help you reach a positive solution.
Trusting your counsellor
A good counsellor will focus on you and listen without judging or criticising you. They may help you find out about how you could deal with your problems, but they should not tell you what to do.
For counselling to be effective, you need to build a trusting and safe relationship with your counsellor. If you feel that you and your counsellor are not getting on, or that you are not getting the most out of your sessions, you should discuss this with your counsellor.
Deep tissue massage manipulates layers of muscles and connective tissue and physically breaks down adhesion’s to relieve pain and restore normal movement. It is particularly beneficial for those experiencing pain or involved in heavy physical activity such as athletics and anyone who has sustained an injury.
Indian Head Massage is based on an ancient Ayurvedic healing system practised in India for over 1 000 years. It is a wonderfully relaxing therapy that involves massage of the soft tissues in the upper back shoulders arms neck scalp and face. The therapist uses a range of different massage pressures and rhythms to stimulate these areas and help balance natural energies and clear any localised areas of negativity. There are many benefits e.g. higher levels of alertness and concentration and relief from tension headaches and eyestrain. However Indian Head Massage is not just physical; it works on an emotional level also calming the spirit promoting relaxation and relieving stress.
Emotional Freedom Technique is a Therapy that is used if you would like to release any unwanted emotions or limiting beliefs. By using a simple tapping technique on certain points of the face and body, you can let go of and release those negative emotions. We stimulate a series of energy points on our face, upper body and hands by tapping, massaging or simply holding, whilst breathing comfortably. At the same time we focus on releasing stress, fears or other negativities in our thoughts, memories, emotions or behaviour patterns. EFT works with remarkable speed, often where nothing else has worked, and produces long-lasting positive effects. As we improve our energy flow with tapping, our bodies relax, our minds become clearer, our thoughts become more positive. In fact, EFT can help reduce negativity and stress and increase positivity and joy in every aspect of our lives. If you would like to know more about how EFT can help you please contact myself or Angelways.

A variety of techniques are used to warm up the muscular system and improve the blood and lymph circulation. A combination of yoga stretches help aid the mobility of the joints and release tension held in the muscles. The massage concentrates on improving circulation, aligning the musculoskeletal system and increasing vital energy.
The massage is done on a futon on the floor. Hands and feet are used. There are many deep massage techniques to warm the body and relieve tension. After warming the body, yoga stretches are carried out according to the condition and needs of the receiver.
In Ayur yogic massage, oil and a herbal powder is used, which help in balancing the body elements, improving circulation and releasing toxins.
Sesame oil is generally used which has a lovely warming effect as well as nourishing the skin and detoxifying. The herbal powder is Calamus (botanical name Acoris Calamus, Araceae) and is a very good detoxifying herb. It is antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and exfoliating. It helps to bring out the deep-seated toxins from lymph and muscles. Through the increased friction created by the powder the massage reaches deeper layers of the tissue and directly revitalises Prana, vital energy in the body.
Highlights of the massage
- Helps to remove toxins held in the muscles
- Improves alignment, flexibility and energy flow
- Brings deep relaxation
- Deep breathing may help in the release of emotional holding

Rebozo takes its name from a Spanish mantilla shawl, which was brought to Mexico by Spanish Colonisers and then used extensively by Mexican women who used it as a shawl to cover themselves or to carry their babies in. Rebozo’s were then used in a postnatal ritual called ‘closing the bones’ and they are now used as part of Fertility Massage. Rebozo is a very simple technique of gently rocking, shimmying and wrapping with the rebozo shawls. You will be wrapped with three rebozo shawls, your head will be wrapped to quieten your mind, your pelvis is wrapped to create safety and stability and your feet are wrapped to ground you. You will be left with an amazing feeling of being safe, secure, and nurtured and as you are unwrapped you will have a lovely feeling of being set free and released. This treatment is fantastic for any situation that has been an overwhelming experience for you.
I can also combine this beautiful technique to the end of a reflexology treatment if desired by a client.
