Why choose reflexology?
Reflexology is a relaxing complementary therapy that promotes your well-being. It has a theoretical basis that certain areas on the feet, hands, ears or face relate and correspond to parts of the body.
Coastal Calm Reflexology is able to provide face, feet or hand reflexology for you, adapted according your requirements.
As a complementary therapy, reflexology is delivered holistically to aid relaxation and improve a sense of well-being, it can help in supporting you physically and emotionally.
Reflexology works on the premise that there are reflexes on the feet, face and hand that are aligned to the body systems and organs. It was original developed alongside medical treatments.
As with all complementary therapies, reflexology works in harmony with the body and supports people alongside any health care they may be receiving. It is not intended to replace medical health care. Some medical healthcare services work with reflexologist to improve patient experience and outcomes.
Reflexology is suitable for all ages and most people, I can provide treatments for any age, 0-100 years plus, and can work with those who are pregnant or wishing to become pregnant.
There are a few reasons whereby it would be advisable to wait before a treatment can commence and you would be advised prior to attending your first appointment.
What to expect.
You will be invited to provide a health history, and then I can develop a treatment plan depending on your priorities. The first consultation will take at least an extra half an hour longer ensuring you receive a full assessment and treatment with after care advice.
You will be welcomed into a professional but homely environment. You will be invited to relax in a treatment chair that slightly reclines, snuggled into a duvet or light covering. Hot towels, premium grade facial/foot products and my skills and experience ensure your relaxing treatment.
All clients receive a welcome pack with advice cards and after each treatment a bespoke advice sheet will be developed ready for your next session if you discuss or a particular well-being requirement is noted.
I use a range of reflexology techniques to suit your needs but in the main the reflexology provided is a light and blended approach bringing together the variety or techniques I have learnt and developed over the years.
