Stress, anxiety and depression support
It's easy to feel overwhelmed by all that life throws our way, and if you suffer from stress, anxiety or depression you're not alone. Life can feel difficult when we struggle with our mental health but there are many positive things that can help, and reflexology can be a useful resource in our wellbeing ‘toolkit’.
A reflexology treatment enables you to hit the pause button and get some much needed headspace away from life’s demands. A treatment can help clear your busy mind, quieten negative thoughts and refresh you when you feel out of kilter. Reflexology immediately helps you regulate your breathing and relieves tension held in the body, and as our body and mind are closely connected, when we relax physically, our mind and emotions calm down too. A rested body also means that our hormones – which have a direct affect on our mental wellbeing – are brought into balance. Reflexology also encourages the release of endorphins, our body's natural feel-good hormones. Deep relaxation and hormone balance naturally aids better sleep, one of the cornerstones of good mental health.
I have a background in stress management and wellness, am trained in Mindful Reflexology, and support my clients with non-judgemental compassion. I can incorporate breathing techniques and mindfulness exercises into my treatments, and give you some simple tips/exercises to take away. Most importantly, I adapt each session to meet your unique needs, and provide you with a safe, impartial space to just 'be'. Learning how to rest helps us cope better with life’s everyday challenges – it provides us with an opportunity to take a step back, gain some perspective and take really good care of ourselves. Many of my clients say that following their treatments they have an improved sense of wellbeing, feel more positive and are less anxious.
