Hi there I'm Anne and I'm a highly trained and AOR accredited Reflexologist who lives and works in Cardiff.
Most of my life and working career have been spent taking part and encouraging others to take part in sporting activities.As a result of sporting injuries and personal illness I was introduced to the power of Reflexology.
I am now truly passionate about the health benefits that can be obtained through reflexology and would love for you to experience the wonderfully relaxing and healing experience yourself.
I am also very proud to be one of the eight members of Sole Sisters, a proactive association who are dedicated to providing a complete and thorough reflexology experience for all!
Reflexology is an ancient complementary therapy which facilitates holistic healing of the physical, emotional and mental, in order to enhance HEALTH.
Reflexology is a touch therapy; I make hand contact on the clients feet and occasionally hands.These areas are manipulated and massaged with pressure placed upon various reflex points.
These reflex points correspond to various systems and organs in the body.The pressure on these specific reflex points is thought to instigate a balancing action in the corresponding body part.
The balancing action of Reflexology has been seen to improve conditions as generalised as depression to those as specific as a chronic back injury.
Only when body systems are fully balanced and in a state of homeostasis can the individual achieve its own full healing potential and HEALTH.
Effects on our nervous systems
Feet contain more touch sensitive receptors than any other body part apart from the lips. Pressure on touch sensitive receptors stimulates the body's Para Sympathetic Nervous System (PSNS).
The PSNS is responsible for initialising many physical responses, such as:
lowering blood pressure
decreasing muscle tension
lowering heart rate
improving digestive efficiency
improving immune efficiency
inducing deep relaxation.
All the above are adversely affected in response to stress;
"It is thought that 90% of all medical conditions can be directly attributed to the effects of stress."
It is therefore clear to me that deep relaxation and stimulation of the PSNS are essential components in negating the effects of stress, and therefore reducing disease.
Reflexology is not pampering or self indulgence, instead it is prioritising your health!!
Who can benefit from Reflexology?
Reflexology is non discriminative; it can benefit all. From babies and children to the elderly, all can react very positively. Men and women all show benefits from improved HEALTH.
Even individuals who feel that they are in reasonably good health often comment on the power of the deep relaxation felt as a result of reflexology.
A programme of one treatment per month is often used in order to maintain the wellbeing and balance found after a course of treatments or if the client is free of illness and just wants the benefits of deep relaxation.
For those individuals who have health issues a personal program of treatments will be discussed. Depending on individual preference, finance and other matters the client and I will decide upon an appropriate treatment program. This program is reassessed and updated on a regular basis.
As a qualified Reflexologist I do NOT ever claim to diagnose, prescribe or cure any complaints or illnesses.
Reflexology has been found to be beneficial to individuals suffering from many complaints, some of which are listed below:
If you suffer with any of the above, or any other health complaints please contact me so that we could discuss a consultation.
Blood pressure; high/low
Chronic illnesses (MS, HIV, ME)
Hormonal imbalance (mood swings,pms,menopause, thyroid)
Stress related conditions
Tiredness and fatigue
About Funky Feet
Your Treatment Plan
When you make your first appointment for a treatment we will discuss your health and complete a consultation questionnaire about your general and specific health and well being.
During the first treatment I will work over all the foot reflexes and note down any reflex imbalances that I detect, we will discuss what those imbalances may relate to.
Based upon the findings in the consultation as well as the first treatment we will discuss your personal treatment plan, the regularity of treatments within that plan will also be discussed with regard to finance and time allowance.
During the treatment plan regular re-assessments will be made according to changes that may occur.Your treatment plan will be personal and specific to you and your conditions and health.
After your first treatment all subsequent treatments will be specifically planned to enhance your health; most reflex points will still be worked during the treatment but priority will be given to the ones showing imbalance.
During the treatments you are seated in a reclining chair which is very relaxing in itself! Many will close their eyes and relax during the treatment, some remain alert and speak throughout, some will even fall into deep sleep. It is your treatment and you decide how you would most like to enjoy it.
The treatment ends with a foot massage and some relaxation techniques. Most leave the treatment feeling totally relaxed.
I work from my home in a room dedicated solely to reflexology. The room has a light, airy, quiet and relaxing atmosphere. I use a recognised relaxator chair for clients and all health and safety issues have been considered.
If a client is unable to walk up stairs I can set up a temporary work place in one of my downstairs rooms.
If a client is unable to come to my house please discuss this with me, as I will make some mobile visits.
I am fully insured and accredited to the AOR whose ethics and policies I follow.
