Are you looking to alleviate stress, encourage good sleep and, enhance your overall wellbeing?
Reflexology is a fantastic way to do all of these things and more. It helps your body restore its natural balance, leaving it in the best place to do its own healing, restoration and repair.
It's a deeply relaxing treatment, a therapy that leaves you better placed to deal with life.
What is Reflexology?
Reflexology affects everyone differently. It helps reduce stress by releasing tension held in the body, can improve sleep and blood circulation, encourage better nerve function and, enhance general wellbeing – redressing these elements helps the body regain its natural balance, encouraging healing and repair so you can feel well.
This non-invasive method of complementary therapy focuses ‘holistically’ on the ‘whole’ person: mind/body/spirit. It’s based on the principle that certain points or 'reflexes' in our feet and hands correspond with each and every part of our body. For example, our big toes represent our head, the inner edge of each foot from big toe to heel represents our spine, etc. Reflexologists use differing pressures on specific reflex points with their fingers, thumbs and hands.
All you need to do is take your shoes and socks off, lay back on a reclining chair or bed, then drift away to that blissful place of lucidity between wake and sleep.

Emma qualified in the Ingham Method of reflexology in 2012. Since then, she's worked on well-over a thousand pairs of feet and hands at Satori, local festivals and fairs, village halls, wellbeing centres and on home visits.
The Ingham Method was developed in the 1930's by the grandmother of reflexology, Eunice Ingham. Most forms of western reflexology have grown from Eunice's teachings. It’s a strong technique working deeply and with pressure, a little comparable to how you might find a deep tissue sports massge – but, always at the pace and receptivity of whom Emma works with and, only on the feet and hands.
Emma also integrates other methods such asTony Porter’s Advanced Reflexology Techniques (ART), another deep and strong practice and, Precision Reflexology which is a very light touch approach.
Reflexology complements Emma's interest in how the mind and body work together. She finds it a good medium for connecting with people to help them on their healing journeys.
