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!
Current circumstances have put a stop to my hands-on therapy practice, and I'm really missing my work and seeing my clients! However, from today, I'm moving my one-to-one wellbeing and reflexology services online.
It's such a strange time at the moment. As a human, a mum, and a small business owner, I'm definitely concerned about how things are going to pan out over the next few months. But I'm trying my best to follow the advice I'm giving my clients...
Plantar fasciitis – painful inflammation of your plantar fascia through injury or illness – is really common. Your plantar fascia is a strong band of tissue (like a ligament) that stretches from your heel to your middle foot bones.
