All About Me
I am a mum of two boys and have been a practising Midwife for the past 22 years. I saw the benefits in holistic and complimentary therapies and decided to branch out into this field. Initially I wanted to use Reflexology to help the women in my care but discovered how much I enjoyed giving treatments to many different people and seeing the positive effect. I have recently qualified in Baby and Toddler Reflex which is immensely satisfying and rewarding. I offer mobile treatments to those who find accessing a clinic difficult. Baby and Toddler Reflex is offered in a group or 1-1.
Welcome to Affinity Reflexology
Relax, Refresh, Restore
Reflexology is based on the theory that different points of the feet correspond with different areas of the body. Applying pressure and massage to these points on the feet and hands is thought to encourage self healing and re balancing of the body's organs and systems.
Foot and Hand reflexology provides a period of time for relaxation helping to reduce stress in an empathetic and calming environment.
Reflexology can be used alongside standard healthcare to promote better health. If you would like to discuss the benefits of reflexology in more detail please feel free to contact me.
