Reflexology is a gentle, non-invasive complementary therapy which uses mirroring on the feet or hands with parts of the body known as reflexes. Manipulation of these points with gentle pressure on specific reflexes can promote healing for the client and has a variety of health benefits such as balance and relaxation. Reflexology can be supportive to the wellbeing of people with many different conditions.
Reflexology is a wonderful holistic therapy that can be used to balance the body and promote the body to heal itself. Reflexes on the feet or hands, which mirror parts of the body, are gently stimulated during a treatment. It is commonly used to help with:
Release of tension
Reflexology can be supportive to the wellbeing of people with many different conditions. The use of reflexology treatments is part of a healing process and may require a course of treatments for the most benefit, so a treatment plan and full consultation is essential. There are some conditions that can’t be treated with reflexology, these can be explored at initial assessment.
I am also qualified in the treatment of 2nd and 3rd trimester women, provide the 4hr labour programme (Louise Keet) and can support with fertility and postnatal care (4th trimester).
As I am qualified in Gentle Touch Reflexology (Sue Ricks) my treatments are suitable for all of the family.
On your first visit, a consultation will be completed to find out a brief medical history and to enable me to complete a treatment plan for you. During your treatment you will remove your shoes and socks and be seated comfortably on a reclining chair, your feet will then be cleansed and an aromatherapy wax will be applied to aid the manipulation. Gentle pressure will be used on your feet to access reflex points.
After a treatment it is normal to feel tired and it is important to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and flush out any toxins. Some people find that they can feel a bit emotional after a session but generally after one or two sessions. This is all normal and thought to be part of the healing process.
Reflexology was first practiced over 5000 years ago and we have early evidence from Ancient Egypt showing footwork being practiced.
Over the last 100 years there has been a great deal of research into the links between what is happening internally in the body to external reflexes.
The reflexes we use today were mapped out by a pioneering physiotherapist called Eunice Ingham whose life’s work was developing reflexology methods and sharing her teachings with others.
Reflexology continues to be developed and researched and the knowledge base continues to expand.
Reflexology has had lots of success with various conditions, both in treating and supporting medical intervention.

"Following my reflexology session I had the best nights sleep I’ve had in such a long time x
Lovely treatment. Heather was really knowledgeable, it was just divine."
"Had my first treatment with Heather and what an amazing experience, I felt completely relaxed and learnt things I did not know, heather is so friendly as well which makes a massive difference in a business like this. I would highly recommend heather 5* service and affordable price. Thank you xx"
"I highly recommend Heather. At first, I was a bit sceptical about Reflexology, but Heather explains it all to me without blinding me with jargon. The treating itself is relaxing and really works. I had been suffering with long standing shoulder, foot, and back pain and after just one treatment the pain was starting to subside and by the second it was gone. Heather takes the time to work with you (no pressure) to develop the best treatment plan and strategies to suit your individual needs. Do not delay book today "

I came out feeling fabulous and my feet smell amazing..bonus! I've booked back in for a few weeks time. Highly recommended."
"I went just for relaxation and really enjoyed the whole experience. Heather was knowledgeable and took things at my pace ie If I rested and relaxed or chatted which we did both, I left feeling relaxed and very calm with the softest of feet, I don’t have any particular health concerns but will definitely be going back for a treat here and there xx."
"Mrs Tickly Toes is amazing with her hands! I've been going for a while and have the best nights sleep afterwards. It helps with my anxiety and stress and balancing my hormones. My 9 year old daughter loves going for reflex too and is like a different child for it more confident and happy. Can highly recommend Heather who works from a lovely atmosphere."
"I had never given reflexology much thought before I read up and learnt of the benefits of it.
The sessions with Heather were great, relaxed and informative. I was really impressed with her knowledge and her calm and relaxing approach which put me at total ease. The sessions really helped me unwind and reduce my stress levels.
I would wholeheartedly recommend reflexology and especially Heather at Mrs Tickly Toes."
