Traditional Reflexology, Hand Reflexology and Hot Stone Reflexology
Reflexology, performed on hands or feet, is a complementary therapy based on the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which are believed to correspond to all organs and parts of the body. Reflexology works on an individual basis and may alleviate and improve symptoms such as everyday stress and tension.
Reflexology can be a wonderfully relaxing experience where you take time out from everyday pressure. Reflexology can give you a sense of general well-being and help you to relax, which can help improve mood, aid sleep and relieve tension.
During a treatment, body imbalances can be detected and corrected by applying pressure on certain reflex points. The aim is to treat the whole person achieving a state of balanced harmony. Many clients use reflexology as a regular relaxing and balancing therapy even after the initial problem has been dealt with.
Hot Stone Reflexology
This is a very soothing and therapeutic treatment due to the warmth of the different sized stones.
Combining a traditional reflexology session with using the basalt stones to further enhance the relaxation and the heat does help to relax the muscles in the feet. This is beneficial for your circulation, lymph function and blood flow, you get a feeling of warmth and comfort as well as balancing body and mind.
What can I expect?
At your first treatment I will introduce myself to you and I will invite you to ask me any questions you may have. We will then start a thorough and confidential consultation which includes gathering information about your medical history and lifestyle. This allows me to get an overall picture of you, your ailments, your needs and your expectations of reflexology. Once the consultation is completed I will ask you to remove your socks and to make yourself comfortable on my treatment couch.
hAs already mentioned, there is no need to remove any clothing apart from your shoes and socks. Reflexology is also a good choice if you don't want to get oil on your body or in your hair.

"I did not know anything about Reflexology, I became more aware of my body, and I did realise the benefits of this treatment. Renni makes you feel very welcome and at ease. She also explained thoroughly what the treatment was about."
Susan, Acomb, York
"I had Reflexology done with Renni when my baby was around 3 days overdue. It was totally relaxing. I felt peaceful when my session had finished and Renni is a fantastic Reflexologist. My baby arrived on his own and I did not have to be induced. That was the whole point of having Reflexology to try and make me as relaxed as possible, so I didn't need any intervention. Reflexology certainly helped."
" Several of my initial symptoms have significantly improved and some long-standing ones are noticeably better after several sessions of Reflexology."
