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.
