I’m Abi and I am a qualified and fully insured Reflexologist covering Maida Vale and the surrounding London area.
I trained at The London School of Reflexology under Louise Keet, ‘Britain’s leading Reflexologist’, and my professional membership is with the Association of Reflexologists (AoR).
I have also have further training in pre-conceptual, pregnancy and postnatal reflexology, gaining an AoR certified diploma in this fascinating and important area.
Reflexology can help you overcome:
- Stress and anxiety
- Sleep problems
- Back pain
- Digestive disorder
- Chronic illness
- Sports injuries
Every treatment is tailored to the individual
It can be a quick pick-me-up during your lunch break, a regular appointment used as a preventative measure or used short term and intensively for a specific purpose.
Reflexology is a safe, natural technique of applying pressure to specific points of the feet, relating to the body’s different organs and systems. My treatments also incorporate lower leg massage and palpation. Regular treatments can gently encourage the body to heal itself and promote a natural state of balance.
I believe that touch is a basic and powerful human need, somewhat neglected as a therapeutic component in our daily lives.
Reflexology is an ancient touch therapy based on acupressure that can elicit wonderful feelings and some amazing benefits -
- Release stress
- Reduce anxiety
- Reduce pain
- Reduce irritability
- Reduce fatigue
Some clients prefer to concentrate almost completely on this physical aspect of the treatment. Others like to also explore holistic Reflexology, taking a little time to consider how lifestyle choices are affecting body and mind. Together we can devise a tailored programme to assist you in achieving wellness.
Subtle changes can produce profound effects!
Pre-Conceptual and Postnatal
Holistic Reflexology is an excellent therapy for both women and men wishing to conceive. Lifestyle changes that can support fertility can be discussed and incorporated at the most beneficial stage. The deep relaxation promoted during treatments is a wonderful aid to conception.
During pregnancy regular treatments can help to balance hormones, boost energy and relieve pain. Up until 37 weeks Reflexology is used to address any particular concerns you have at each session, plus provide time for intense relaxation that’s great for you and the baby.
After the 37th week treatments change to incorporate specific reflex points. Stimulating these reflex points encourages the body to prepare for labour, but will never cause anything unnatural, like a premature delivery.
Shorter and Less Painful Natural Labour
A recent research study has shown that reflexology in pregnancy significantly reduced pain during labour and reduced the length of the first stage of labour
