Reflexology - what is it?
   
Well trained reflexologists do not claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe.

Reflexology is a very individual treatment which is tailored to you as a whole person, taking into account both physical and non-physical factors that might be affecting your wellbeing. Some people find it works for them - some don't. The best way to find out is to try it!

The theory is that reflexology helps the body to restore its balance naturally. Usually, after a treatment your tension may be reduced and you might feel relaxed. You might also notice yourself sleeping better and find your mood and sense of wellbeing improving. You may also find that other aspects improve too; however, this happens on an individual basis.

There have been some positive research projects carried out with reflexology; however, as yet, there is not a large enough body of evidence for us to make clinical claims of effectiveness.

With ever increasing levels of stress in everyday life, it is important for people to take more responsibility for their own healthcare needs. Reflexology may be one of the ways to mitigate the stresses of modern life.

Reflexology should not be used as an alternative to seeking medical advice.

Sarah Ramiah

Postgraduate in Reflexology

Practitioner’s Certificate in: Hand Reflexology
Hot Stone Therapy
Indian Head Massage
Thai Foot Massage

I have been an active practitioner for over ten years and have seen the complementary therapy field flourish around me.

This encouraged me to research the various therapies by travelling around the globe, which broadened my knowledge and helped me obtain unique techniques from the native lands.

I subsequently developed a passion to share my work and skills which lead me to Ireland and the USA where I lectured at schools and promoted Complimentary Therapy at trade shows.

I am a full member of the Association of Reflexologists and follow their codes of Practice and Ethics seriously.

In my experience as a practitioner I have previously achieved the following:

Stimulated Lymphatic drainage and reinforced Respiratory system with Indian Head Massage.
