Welcome to Riki Davies Medical Herbalist

Riki obtained a degree in Herbal Medicine at the University of Westminster in London. She is a member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH), which has been in existence since 1864, making it the oldest and most respected professional body of practising Medical Herbalists in the UK. As well as running her own successful practice, Riki has written articles for magazines, runs workshops for members of the public, and teaches Complementary Therapies at a local college. Riki’s practice is based in Surbiton, Surrey. For appointments, further information or advice, please contact me.

Riki gained an ITEC diploma in Aromatherapy Massage and Reflexology after discovering for herself the beneficial effects of massage to find complete relaxation. She decided to further her knowledge of Complementary Therapies and the holistic path to health by studying a new and unique approach to the body's joints and muscles called Body Shift, the results of which are remarkable.



Herbal Medicine

Herbal Medicine is an ancient form of medical healing still practiced all over the world today. It is a gentle and safe treatment, which utilizes a long traditional knowledge of herbs and their uses, together with the latest scientific research.

How does it work?
Over time, certain herbs have become known for their specific active healing ingredients, which work to stimulate the body’s own restorative powers.

A Medical Herbalist works holistically, offering patients custom-made medicine to support their own body’s healing powers. By consulting a Medical Herbalist, you are ensuring the most appropriate herbs are used to treat your condition effectively.

What can it treat?
A Medical Herbalist is able to deal with everyone from children to the elderly and with any health condition. Herbal Medicine is particularly beneficial to those with the following conditions:

  • Skin disorders, such as eczema and psoriasis
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Headaches, migraines
  • Asthma, hay fever
  • Insomnia
  • Period irregularities, infertility
  • High blood pressure
  • Bowel disorders
  • Indigestion, wind
  • Prostate problems
  • Menopausal problems
  • Fatigue
  • Bronchitis
  • Baby / Childhood illnesses
  • Painful joints / muscles
  • Eating disorders and obesity
  • Baby / Childhood illnesses
  • Painful joints / muscles
  • Eating disorders and obesity
  • Bronchitis

    Consulting a Herbalist
    The first consultation typically lasts one hour and takes into consideration your diet, lifestyle and a detailed account of your medical history. Subsequent visits usually last half an hour, during which progress is assessed and subsequent herbal prescriptions modified, according to your changing needs.

    Treatment is generally in the form of liquid tinctures, herbal teas, pills, creams and lotions. Diet and lifestyle advice will also be given.

    All consultations are strictly confidential.



    Aromatherapy

    Aromatherapy is the practice of using essential oils that have been extracted from plants to improve health and well being.

    What does Aromatherapy do?
    Aromatherapy can give relief to all sorts of problems, both physical and emotional. It can be administered in the form of a massage, as room freshener, aromatic baths, inhalants, and pot pourri.

    When used in massage, it can help to:

  • relax body and mind
  • reduce tension
  • improve the blood circulation
  • tone and strengthen the muscles
  • boost the natural detoxification process
  • overcome stress
  • soothe aches in muscles and joints
  • improve flexibility.

    It also conditions your skin!

    A course of treatment varies, according to the patient’s needs. There are an ever-growing number of people who use this extremely safe and effective therapy, which balances, relaxes and harmonises the body and mind, and generally maintains a sense of well being.

    Allow 1 – 1 ¼ hours for initial treatment.

    If you have a severe medical problem, please consult your GP before booking a treatment.



    Reflexology

    Reflexology is the traditional art of healing, dating back to the times of Ancient Egypt, China and India. It involves gentle pressure massage on the feet. The human body is divided into ten equal vertical zones, ending with the fingers and toes. Gentle pressure on one part of a particular zone can affect everything else linked to the “reflexes” on the hands and feet in the same zone.

    How Reflexology can help you?
    Reflexology helps the body heal itself. Regular reflexology treatment can help you sleep better and strengthen your immune system.

    What happens during treatment?
    The Reflexologist uses his/her hands, gently pressing on the patient’s feet. Prior to the treatment, the Reflexologist will ask questions as to general health and lifestyle. This helps to build up a complete picture of the patients so that Aromatherapy treatment can be given. Carefully trained hands can detect even tiny imbalances and deposits in the feet, and working on the points, blockages can be released and energy can flow freely again.

    The body can respond in many ways. Some patients experience deep relaxation and well being after a treatment; others feel renewed energy. Some feel over-emotional but this is transitory and a way of the body responding to treatment.
