A range of smooth basalt stones are used to warm the lower legs and feet, followed by a massage of the lower legs. Pressure techniques are alternated with warming stones on specific nerve endings and acupressure points on the feet to treat the whole body to restore a natural state of balance and good health.
The gentle heat of the stones deepens the effects of a normal reflexology session for an incredibly relaxing and healing treatment. Leaving you with an improved sense of emotional and physical wellbeing, reflexology also helps aide in the release of stress and tension, improving sleep and mood.
The feet, when put together, reflect a mirror image of the body’s anatomy and physiology. After warming each reflex, pressure techniques are applied to specific nerve endings, or reflexes, on the feet 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 feet the body can be restored to a natural state of balance and good health.
Additionally, using TCM and Five element theory I am able to palpate the five elemental organs presented on the feet to understand where there may be excesses or deficiencies in the body. Selecting and working specific acupressure points on the legs and feet 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. It is a good idea to wear loose fitting trousers as you will be massaged up to your knees.
Your feet will be cleansed with hot towels before your choice of wax is used to massage and release muscle tension in the lower legs before hot stones are used to warm and relax the lower legs and feet. The stones are then alternated with working the reflex points of the feet for a deeply relaxing treatment.
