Sarah has practiced reflexology since 1995 after qualifying with Bayly School of Reflexology in the UK. Her work has been based in London and Singapore where she has enjoyed providing treatment to men, women and children.
As a practicing midwife Sarah has worked with many pregnant women over the years and used reflexology to prepare them for labour. She is able to instruct women in the use of ‘vertical’ reflexology for labour and is also happy to suggest ways that parents can treat their children with reflexology.
Sarah’s background in clinical healthcare in the UK and internationally, helps her to practice the therapy in a clear, clinical context for each individual client.
You will be asked some questions about your lifestyle and any medical problems before starting treatment. You then need only remove your shoes and socks and either lie or recline for the duration of the session. Firm (but not painful) pressure is applied with the reflexologist’s hands, to both your feet, which lasts about 45 minutes. Feedback about your treatment is then given.
The number of reflexology sessions required will vary depending on the condition being treated.
Reflexology is a complementary medicine and involves a method of treatment using massage to reflex areas found in the feet and the hands. Most commonly, the feet are treated. The whole body is represented in the feet, thereby allowing treatment for the entire body via the feet.
Many health problems have been successfully treated with reflexology. Migraine, hormone imbalances, digestive problems, back problems, tension and stress are just a few examples. Most people who have experienced treatment would agree that the method is both a beneficial and relaxing therapy.
