My name is Lizzy , I am a fully qualified Reflexologist, Baby & Toddler Reflex instructor; member of the association of reflexologists, Reiki Therapist & Masseuse. My interest in reflexology was sparked 20 years ago when I enjoyed my first ever treatment whilst pregnant with my daughter. I was fascinated with the theory behind it and it amazed me how much the therapist could learn about my well-being just from touching my feet. Some years later I decided to learn to be a reflexologist myself, to help others in the same way I'd been helped.
Reiki, as it so often does, found me at a time I needed it. 14 years ago I experienced a taster treatment and was told I needed to become more grounded. At the time I was a little unsure of the significance of her words, although i thought about the treatment often. Roll on another 8 years and again, Reiki found me. Through unrelated circumstances I met my Reiki teacher at a time when I was ready to learn, and here I am. Both disciplines have changed my life for which I am very grateful, and take great pleasure in helping to make positive adjustments in the well-being of my clients.
Both Reflexology & Reiki are holistic healing tecniques which means that the individual's mind, body & spirit are taken in to account when giving a treatment, which is why it's important that a thorough consultation is given. As a holistic therapist I treat the whole body and don't generally work on just one specific organ or system. I will treat symptoms but also aim to treat the cause, and aim to restore balance and harmony to whole body. Holistic therapies such as Reflexology & Reiki are becoming increasingly popular as they encourage & stimulate our body's own natural healing abilities.
I went on to learn Baby & Toddler reflex so that i could pass this invaluble tool on to parents and carers, empowering them to help ease and releive many normal baby discomforts in their own children. Swedish Massage and Indian Head Massage were both treatments that I was also keen to learn because of their effective theraputic effects , and which fitted well with what I was already practicing. Again, both treatments are highly beneficial, relaxing the whole body, increasing oxygen levels in the blood, improving circulation easing tension and rebalancing the bodies energies.
