Reflexology Coulsdon Surrey
Mobile: 07841 800 333
Welcome to my Reflexology practice at the Therapy and Life Centre in Coulsdon Surrey. I am available for appointments on Mondays and weekday afternoons. Evening and weekend appointments are also available on request.
Reflexology is a non-intrusive, complementary therapy. It is based on the theory that different points on the feet, hands, and face correspond with different body areas. Additionally, reflexologists believe that reflexology can restore balance in the body or homeostasis by working these points through pressure techniques. It does this in the following ways:
- Improving blood circulation
- Relieving stress and tension
- Eliminating toxins
- Aiding sleep
- Promoting relaxation
What are the benefits of Reflexology?
The demands of our day-to-day lives also lead to increasing levels of stress. If we remain in a prolonged state of stress, our body responds by shutting down non-essential functions. This then leads to health issues. Therefore, we should also recognise the detrimental effect stress has on our health and well-being and address it.
Reflexology cannot diagnose or cure specific medical conditions. However, it often leads to an improved sense of wellbeing. Many people also report that it offers them relief from symptoms related to a wide range of health conditions, including:
- Hormonal imbalance/PMS
- Poor Circulation
- Digestive problems
- Anxiety and depression
- Neck/back/shoulder pain
This is by no means an exhaustive list! Many people have reflexology because they simply enjoy the relaxation it offers them.
Reflexology Coulsdon for Health and Relaxation
What can I expect?
Appointments are for 1 hour. Your first appointment includes an initial consultation. This will enable me to understand any health issues and also tailor the treatment to your needs.
Your treatment begins by relaxing the feet, followed by a sequence of pressure techniques that work the reflex points related to every part of the body. Your treatment concludes with a relaxing foot massage.
My name is Heidi Porter, and I am a fully qualified and insured Reflexologist. I live near and serve the Coulsdon Surrey area. My qualifications include an ABC Level 3 Diploma from the highly regarded Maureen Burgess School of Reflexology in East Grinstead. I am also a member of the Association of Reflexologists (AoR). The AoR is an independent professional body in the UK that works with many advisory groups. They research the impact of reflexology and also promote the highest possible standards in the profession.
Finally, my own passion for reflexology was born when I first experienced it myself during a period of illness. It helped me a great deal at a rather difficult time. It sowed the seed that would later grow into training as a reflexologist myself. Before this, my background was in Primary Teaching. I saw first-hand the impact of stress and anxiety on overall health and well-being.
Reflexology provides that rare chance to put your feet up, relax and leave your worries at the door.
