I am a reflexologist practising in North Buckinghamshire, covering Buckingham, Winslow, Milton Keynes and surrounding villages.
Welcome to Footsteps to Health
Reflexology is a wonderful health giving, and deeply relaxing foot massage which benefits the whole body. It is luxurious to receive and a delight to give, and can give you a feeling of wellbeing like no other treatment that I know! In particular I have found that reflexology seems to be especially helpful for bringing relief to you if you are suffering from:
Feeling “under the weather”
I am not allowed under law to make any specific health claims, but I believe that you will find reflexology to be a wonderful and deeply relaxing, sensous way to "balance" the body and alleviate symptoms or reduce that nagging pain, so that you can get on with your normal life.
Who am I and what can I give you?
I have been interested in Complementary Health all my life, and am particularly interested in the mind/body connection. After a career working with young adults, and then Social Services, I qualified as a Reflexologist in 1999. I have discovered to my delight how effective reflexology is, and have had many successes with clients over the years. I also love the simplicity of Reflexology ...... a pair of hands and a pair of feet!
Whether you’re looking for a moment of calm and deep relaxation, a way of pampering yourself, a different way of looking at some of the health issues you have (especially those that haven’t responded to other forms of treatment), or you just feel you need a boost, reflexology may be the answer.
I understand that stress is an important factor in ill health, and I make sure that you become ultra relaxed during your treatment. You can come for sessions to my home in Adstock (the Milton Keynes side of Buckingham...please see map) and I also offer a mobile service for those of you who are unable to travel. I have experience in treatments for people with disabilities as well as the general population.
In addition to offering Reflexology, I can give you what I call “mini treatments” which are incorporated into sessions as appropriate at no extra cost. These include:
- Mini massage
- Touch for Health
- Emotional Freedom Technique
- Diaphragm Release
- Magnet Therapy
- Emotional Stress Release
- Nutritional guidance
Footsteps to Health is based on the belief that your health takes priority over other considerations. I am therefore happy to refer you to other local practitioners when necessary. I have built up a strong network of contacts within the area, and am happy to advise you over the phone if you are unsure how best to proceed with how compementary therapy may help with your health issues. If you want a friendly and knowledgeable person to talk to, then please feel free to contact me.
I am a fully qualified and insured Reflexologist, and a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists.
Bookings and prices
For all enquiries, please call me, Jonquil on 01296 711527 or email [email protected] and I’ll be happy to answer any questions. Sessions cost £30 for a full hour of treatment (you should allow one and a quarter hours for your visit). Home visits are usually £33. No extra charge for first appointments.
What else do I offer?
Touch Therapy is especially for people with disabilities who may receive a lot of touch (e.g. dressing, bathing etc.) but very little pampering. It is particularly appropriate for people suffering from dementia, especially if they have communication difficulties. Touch is such a basic form of communication that it can often lift people out of their isolation, even if speech is absent. . So if you have a loved one who is suffering from dementia and who can become distressed or agitated, you may like to book an initial session (in these circumstances I would visit) to see how they respond. Why not give me a ring to talk it over?
As well as offering treatments, I market carefully selected health products and equipment, providing full support before and after sales. It is possible for anyone interested to both view and try out these devices in Adstock.
Chi Machine or passive aerobic exerciser
These wonderful devices are passive aerobic exercisers, but do much much more. They have helped people with a wide variety of conditions, and in my opinion are one of the best and most versatile pieces of wellness equipment on the market. The list of conditions they have helped is long and variable and includes the following:
- Lower back pain
- Whiplash injury
- Digestive problems
- Breathing problems
- Joint pain
- Sleep problems
- Tension, anxiety and depression
- Blood sugar fluctuations
(please note, these findings are anecdotal and not supported by clinical research)
I sell 3 different machines to suit peoples’ pockets, from the “Rolls Royce” make (The Sun Ancon Machine) to more budget machines (The Power of Chi exerciser, and the Zen machine), ranging in prices from approximately £400 to £120.
This is one of the most powerful therapeutic magnets on the market. It is in the form of a wand, and oscillates rapidly to provide both comfort and to adjust the magnetic polarity, making it more acceptable to the body. It can be used with people of all ages, and even your pets! It is said to be particularly useful for the following:
- Sports injuries and sprained muscles
- Joint pain and arthritis
- Cuts, bruises, stings and broken bones
- Menstrual pain and bowel problems
- Fatigue and sleep problems
- I sell these for £85
This is a whole body exerciser, based on the powerful effects of vibration. Scientists produced vibration exercise as a, excellent way for astronauts to exercise during space-flights to keep them fit and healthy. The many studies done using this type of body-conditioning exercise showed significant results in keeping fit and healthy. The machine does all the work for you, and exercises the legs, buttocks, and all the abdominal muscles. It is said to be particularly good for toning and strengthening the main muscle groups, helping to reduce fat, increasing bone density and improving circulation.
I sell these for £225
