Diet and MS

A really interesting study regarding diets and MS – this article does focus more on the scientific methodology, but it does seem that dietary changes may have significant effects on perception of fatigue in sufferers of the condition.

Holidays are coming up soon – book your relaxing reflexology session NOW!

snowy-christmas-decoration-3757969There are only 5 working weeks left before I close for the school/Christmas holidays. If you would like to book for a seasonal pampering treat (or any other reason!), then please get in touch soon. My calendar is filling up rapidly. I will be open for several evenings over the next few weeks, so if you can’t make a day time appointment please ask for other availability.

Remember – you can buy gift vouchers for treatments – or get your family and friends to buy them for you! You can then use them book a treatment in the New Year, to get you ready for all that 2017 might bring.  Making time for yourself should be one of your new year promises!

I look forward to hearing from you very soon. You can book straight away by clicking on the ‘book now’ tab at the side of the page, or by sending me a message using the ‘get in touch’ box.

Wellbeing

What is ‘wellbeing,? The Oxford English dictionary defines wellbeing as ‘The state of being or doing well in life’adult_reflexology_image_5
Dictionary.com goes further: ‘well-be·ing: a good or satisfactory condition of existence; a state characterized by health, happiness and prosperity.’  (This is a more inclusive definition and takes into account the element of having enough money to live.)  The World Health Organisation (WHO) includes wellbeing in their definition of health: ‘Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.’

What does this have to do with reflexology, you may ask? Reflexology treatments can be very helpful in promoting balance (or homeostasis), within your body, where all your systems are working together as they should. Doing things that are good for your wellbeing will benefit all aspects of your life; for example, less stress will equal better relationships, better sleep and improved mood.  What’s not to like about that?

baby_foot_image_1Reflexology is suitable for almost everyone, from tiny babies to older people, and can help to promote wellbeing, even when you are well.  If you’d like to try it for yourself, or know someone who may benefit from a treatment, then why not get in touch?

Studio!

14567570_675487662604018_8327855418469181129_oSo this is how the studio looks today after some hard work by our lovely installers.  Tomorrow they finish the roof, and then the insides.  By the end of the week we should have some electricity, and possibly lights (!).  Hopefully by the end of next week we can actually move the reflexology stuff in, which will be thrilling.

Garden studio

Finally, and after much thought and debate, our studio in the garden has been chosen, ordered and now delivered. It’s taking up most of the front lawn. The builders came today to put the footings in, so we can see the space taking shape now. Next week the installers come to actually put the building together.  What does this mean for you?  Soon all my treatments will take place in the studio, allowing views of the garden (also a work in progress), and privacy.
