Reflexology for women's health
Ladies, young, old and everything in between, helping you on your journey through womanhood with reflexology is something I feel passionate about. As females, we should feel celebrated, respected and supported.
The week before last I spent two training days on the Reflexology for Women’s Health training course with Hagar Basis of the Reflexology Academy, one of the UK’s most established reflexology practitioners and trainers. I shared those two days with a bunch of fabulous reflexologists and it was so great to swap ideas and practices.
I learnt a whole range of new techniques to support my female clients, from the onset of menstruation right through to post menopause. We covered reflexology for: in/fertility; pregnancy, labour and birth; the postnatal period and breastfeeding; peri-menopause/menopause; PMT, painful periods and irregular/lack of periods; endometriosis; UTIs; mental health...and much more.
Really looking forward to incorporating this into my treatments!
As a reflexologist, I've seen first hand how powerful the simple act of touch can be. The importance of this innate human connection can’t be underestimated; it's vital to our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
Cold hands, warm heart? That's all well and good but now the temperature has dropped we just want warm mitts and feet! Reflexology is brilliant for the circulation and at the end of a treatment, feet and toes are warm and even in colour.
I'm now officially trained in Mindful Reflexology, thanks to the brilliant Sally Earlam from the Association of Reflexologists. This additional reflexology training consolidates my background in mental well-being and stress management.
