Marian is a highly qualified (approved member of the AOR – Association of Reflexologists) and experienced Reflexologist who has joined our ever-expanding team of Therapists here at Nature’s Quay.
She says, ‘Reflexology can fit into a busy lifestyle and can become a welcome respite in an otherwise busy world, helping you feel more able to cope with the treadmill of life.
With ever increasing stress in our world, it is important to take personal responsibility for our lives and find ways to combat stress and anxiety which, long term can affect our well being and lead to disease and illness.
I can perform reflexology on hands, feet or face and I specialise in baby reflexology (after the 6 week check), pregnancy reflexology and women's health reflexology. Reflexology is a gentle, non-invasive therapy that encourages the body to balance and heal itself”
Modern reflexology is increasingly linked to traditional Chinese medicine and meridian therapy is now being taught in many reflexology schools.
Reflexologists work with energy zones and feel for blockages in energy or congestion which can feel like grains of sand or crystalline deposits. By finger walking over the zones, the blockages will be removed allowing free flow of energy.
Which conditions can it help?
Reflexology helps to relax a person, helps the body cope with stress and improves the circulation of blood and lymph. It has been known to improve sleep quality and patterns, help you feel less frazzled, release tension, improve mood and ones general well-being.
Well-being is much more than simply the absence of illness; it includes an improved frame of mind, better relationships with those around you and increased happiness.
Pregnancy and Reflexology
Maternity reflexology can be of great support to women throughout pregnancy and can promote be general well-being.
It can allow you time out from your probably busy life and a place where you can focus purely on you and your growing baby in a calm, comforting place.
Although there is no evidence that reflexology can induce labour, the general view is that it will help support the body to prepare and promote relaxation at a time when anxiety levels may often be high.
Womens' Health and Reflexology.
We all experience times when we feel we need a little extra help; puberty, adolescence, exams, the week before your period if you have PMS or leading up to and beyond the menopause. Add into the equation, fluctuating hormone levels and it is not surprising that women need to do something extra to support their well-being.
Alongside work, women often find themselves running the home, organising family routines, budgeting and many more tasks too numerous to mention, so stress is a big factor. If stress levels remain high for too long, well-being can be affected causing detrimental effects on the body including changes in some hormone levels. These changes can affect the mind and emotions.
Everyone is unique and responds differently to treatment but as a reflexologist I can help reduce the intensity and duration of menstrual pain, improve sleep, PMS and reduce anxiety.
Here is a lovely testimonial from one of Marian’s clients..
Marian is absolutely lovely, I felt like I had known her for ages. After an hour of reflexology I felt the most relaxed I had in ages. Anyone feeling like they need rebalancing or just an hour of pure relaxation I would thoroughly recommend booking an appointment. CH
