Mindful reflexology training
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.
Mindful reflexology supports stress, anxiety and depression and is suitable for all ages. Along with working specific reflex points, I can incorporate breathing techniques, mindfulness exercises, and provide some ideas for you to take away and work on. Most importantly, I adapt each treatment to meet your own specific needs and circumstances, and provide you with a safe, confidential and impartial space to just 'be'.
I've already seen my first mindfulness client this week, implementing some of my newly learnt techniques in my Falmouth treatment room. We started the treatment off with a mindfulness exercise while I warmed up the feet and got them ready for the therapeutic part of the session. By the end of their treatment the client's breathing had become regular and calm, and their body was completely relaxed. The client seemed to really enjoy their treatment and gave me some lovely, positive feedback.
I love my job!
Earlier this week I spent a couple of hours at Enys Gardens in Penryn, near Falmouth, with a family friend from years ago. Looking at this beautiful carpet of bluebells was wonderfully soothing for my soul.
I'm a big fan of flaxseeds (also known as linseeds) and suggest to many of my clients to include them in their diet. Taste-neutral, cheap and simple to add to all kinds of meals, they have many health benefits. Here's a quick overview...
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.
