About Salutary Reflexology

My Journey

Throughout my working career I’ve always supported people to help themselves in bringing out the best in their physical and emotional well-being.  Working in the Healthcare profession, for the NHS alongside the breast and colorectal team, following on to Derbyshire county council, social services, was a challenging journey but one that gained me experience within the conventional ways of supporting people within their health care needs.

Whilst within the NHS and hearing from patients the benefits of reflexology whilst having treatments in Hospice centres, supporting them in living with cancer, sparked an interest within complementary therapies.

Years later I had the opportunity to follow a dream, I know it sounds cliché, but one I’d awaited to grasp, and my passion began within the complementary therapy field studying reflexology.

– Cancer and Palliative care

Associations

Following this I also joined the Association of reflexologist and Professional reflexology, whom are both respected independent professional bodies for reflexology who provide support for their members and give the general public clear and up to date information.  This meaning I have met the associations strict standards and abide by the associations code and practice, hold a nationally recognised qualification in reflexology, committed to continually develop my skills and knowledge and hold valid insurance.  Being part of these associations also means you can claim back on most health insurance policies but make sure you check with your provider.

Reflexology is a none invasive holistic therapy which works on the principle that there are reflex points within the hands and feet which correspond to all organs, glands, and parts of the body.

Stimulating these reflexes with the fingers and thumbs on the extremities can lead to the bodies homeostasis, or balance, bringing out your inner well-being.

Doctors agreed that 75% of disease is caused by stress and nervous tension, Reflexology is a great way to relax making this therapy a safe and natural way to help our bodies regain that sense of well-being. Reflexology can aid in reducing everyday stresses and strains, improve circulation thereby revitalising energy levels. It can also be used to aid the restoration and maintenance of the body’s natural equilibrium, encouraging natural feelings of well-being.

Reflexology treatments can be given to most from newborns to the elderly male and female, even women who are pregnant. People with Ticklish feet can also enjoy the potential benefits of reflexology, I also offer hand reflexology which is just as effective.

Evidence suggests that forms of reflexology therapy where used in ancient Egypt, India, Japan and China. The oldest historical evidence comes from a tomb in Egypt Saqqara, the hieroglyphic has been dated as far back at 2330 BC which shows reflexology treatment being used.
