Holistic Therapist based in Bury St Edmunds offering Reflexology, Reiki and Indian Head Massage
I am a mum of two young kiddies (three if you include my husband!) and I offer Reflexology, Reiki or Indian Head Massage therapies from my home in Bury St Edmunds but am also mobile (Bury St Edmunds and surrounding area - Newmarket to Ipswich and beyond!).
I am passionate about holistic/complementary therapies and it always amazes me how they can affect our entire bodies. Having seen what stress can do to the people I love - not only mentally, physically, but also emotionally - I hope to help people feel more relaxed and less stressed.
I have been in a desk job for over 25 years and know what sitting all day looking at a screen can do to our bodies over time. I have found that complementary therapies have helped me immensely over the last few years in different ways and this is what inspired me to re-train in a new career at the ripe old age of 40.
I look forward to meeting you and finding out how I can help you feel better x
I don't know about you but I am not enjoying the evenings getting darker! I was giving a lady a treatment in her back garden in Newmarket during one of the warmer evenings and by time we had finished it was pitch black! The one good thing about it getting cooler is that my clients are loving snuggling under my blankets during their holistic therapy. Cosy!
Indian Head Massage is a popular therapy with my clients at the moment, I wonder if it's because the children are back at school?! Take care all and if you fancy trying a wonderful Indian Head Treatment just let me know xxx
STRESS, ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION
Unfortunately we are hearing more and more about people with stress, anxiety and depression. This isn't just in adults either, as even young children in primary school can suffer. In November, I am going to be going to London to train with the fabulous Sally Earlam on Mindful Reflexology which is said to help hugely with stress, anxiety and depression.
Mindfulness can just be something as simple as closing your eyes when you eat to really taste the food or turning the television off so you actually take notice of what you are eating. It can be going for a walk and not looking at your phone, noticing the trees, the sky, the clouds, how your feet feel on the ground. I find just lying in bed and noticing how my body feels against the sheets helps to bring me back to the present. There are some wonderful free mindfulness meditations on YouTube too which I use when I can't switch off the noise in my brain at bedtime.
Reiki is so good for relieving stress as well. My clients who come for this therapy sometimes have trouble getting off the massage bed afterwards as they are so relaxed! They find that, even if they have trouble turning off the busy thoughts initially, they are able to do so not long after I place my hands on their solar plexus or on their belly. Our belly is our second brain, did you know that?! Gut feelings about a horse in the Newmarket races? Butterflies in the stomach when you meet someone or something is about to happen? Knot in our stomach when we're worried? Interesting hey?
Love and light x
