Specific pressure techniques are used to massage the hands and arms in this deeply calming and balancing treatment. Particularly therapeutic for our hard-working hands, this wonderful therapy helps to melt away stress. Combining the foundations of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Five Element theory I can work acupressure points to further enhance and deepen each treatment.
Reflexology treats you holistically to restore and balance your emotional and physical wellbeing and may aide in releasing tension and stress, improving sleep and mood.
The hands, when put together, reflect a mirror image of the body’s anatomy and physiology. A reflexologist is able to apply pressure techniques to specific nerve endings, or reflexes, on the hands which correspond to certain organs, systems and glands in the body. Toxins can build up in your body during times of stress or illness and by stimulating the corresponding nerve endings in the hands, the body can be restored to a natural state of balance and good health. You might prefer to choose a hand treatment if you do not like having your feet touched or have any infections of the feet and it is equally as effective as foot reflexology.
Additionally, using TCM and Five element theory I am able to select and work specific acupressure points on the forearms, hands that can help to unblock, strengthen or calm the flow of energy through the meridian channels, providing further balance and harmony to the body and mind.

What is a treatment like?
You can choose to remain seated or reclined on my luxurious treatment bed. You will be wrapped in warm blankets and soft towels while you listen to relaxing music and enjoy your treatment. Your hands will be cleansed with warm cloths before your choice of wax is used to massage and release muscle tension in the forearms before moving on to massage and work the reflex points of the hands. We generally carry a lot of stress in our hands, remember the phrase “clenched fists”, and this wonderful therapy helps to melt away these stresses.
How can it help me?
Hand reflexology treats you holistically as a person to increase your overall wellbeing. Most people find they gain a deep sense of relaxation during the treatment and often find the treatments bring about a release of tension, improved sleep, improved mood and an increased sense of wellbeing.
