Stress and how it can affect you

Does life seem like a struggle right now?

Perhaps you're feeling overwhelmed and constantly under pressure…

Being stressed can often become a way of life and this may negatively impact your overall wellbeing.

Prolonged stress reduces immunity, so you may be more prone to colds/coughs and other viruses. And when stress is unresolved, it may lead to more serious long-term health issues.

So now’s the time to tackle it!

“I left after the treatment feeling calm and relaxed, with tips on how to improve and maintain my wellbeing. I thoroughly recommend Clare as a professional and caring therapist.”

How can reflexology help?

* In a research study, reflexology was shown to significantly reduce stress levels, being associated with an increased feeling of ease and a reduction in anxiety

* A.J. McVicar et al. "Evaluation of anxiety, salivary cortisol and melatonin secretion following reflexology treatment: A pilot study in healthy individuals". Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice, 2007 VOL 13;NUMBER3, pages 137-145

Please note that reflexology never claims to cure, but allows your body's own natural healing to take place.

These are the sort of stress-related conditions that may benefit from the natural healing effects of reflexology:

  • Insomnia
  • Depression/Low Mood
  • Back/Muscular Pain
  • Digestive problems (including IBS)
  • Hormone imbalance (Mood Swings/Comfort Eating)
  • Perimenopause symptoms (numerous, including Hot Flushes/Night Sweats)
  • Anxiety
  • Headaches/Migraine
  • Fatigue (feeling tired all the time)
  • Asthma
  • Sinus problems
  • High blood pressure
  • Skin problems (including Eczema/Psoriasis)

“The therapy room is a very calming and peaceful environment for any session and I always leave feeling refreshed and recharged. Clare is always conscious of my well-being and has helped me improve my self care outside of our appointments.”

What happens during a reflexology session?

Reflexology sessions take place in the peaceful and nurturing environment of my cosy treatment room…

You'll recline on a comfortable treatment couch, there’ll be dim lighting, soft music and you may hear birds outside the window!

A natural reflexology foot balm/cream will then be applied to your feet and lower legs. A combination of massage and gentle pressure will encourage you to switch off and unwind and may help stimulate your body’s own natural healing processes.

The sensation should be pleasantly soothing and will promote feelings of calm.

You may feel drowsy or even fall asleep for a short while. Holistic therapists take that as a great compliment!

Afterwards you should feel rested and recharged - and ready to face the world again.

”It was lovely to be back seeing Clare, I had a very relaxing stress busting hour that made me feel so good. I slept really well that night, thank you Clare I am looking forward to the next treatment.”

These enhanced reflexology treatments also help to relieve stress and ease tension within the body…

Top to Toe Reflexology is a combined foot and facial reflexology treatment - a deliciously restorative whole body experience.

Hot Stone Reflexology uses gentle heat from thermal stones to relieve tension in the legs and feet. It can be particularly soothing during the colder months of the year.
