About. Who is your therapist?
I’m a fully qualified Complementary Therapist with two keen interests – how the body functions and the impact that mental health conditions have on the whole body. I discovered Complementary Therapies as a 16 year old Beauty Therapy student but at the time was too young to train. Fast forward 12 years and I found myself studying full time as a mature student, qualifying with a VTCT Level 3 Diploma in July 2016. My current professional membership is with the Guild of Holistic Therapists, a well established organisation who require their members to have nationally recognised qualifications and insurance.
When I am not working I take the opportunity to study and currently have a NCFE Level 2 Certificate in Understanding Nutrition & Health, an IAHT Accredited Level 3 Diploma in Holistic Pain Management and nearing completion of a NCFE Level 2 Certificate in Understanding The Care & Management Of Diabetes. From January 2017 I will be undertaking further studying in Reflexology and become qualified to Level 4. You can see all my certification on my Facebook page by clicking here.
Blossom Complementary Therapies launched in January 2017 and in that short space of time I have met some wonderful clients, their families and not forgetting their pets! It’s always a pleasure to be welcomed into a client’s home; long standing and new clients alike. I work with clients who have physical health conditions, mental health conditions and everything in between with appointments to suit all requirements. For further information please click here to view services and prices.
Reflexology is still relatively misunderstood by many people and this alone can stop someone experiencing this wonderful therapy. I can work with your hands or feet and the therapy is based on applying pressure in a series of sequences across the area being worked with. I am always happy to have a chat before appointments are made and would encourage potential clients to have a conversation with me so we can decide together if Reflexology is suitable for you. You may find that you’d rather have Massage Therapy on your hands or feet instead and information on both therapies can be found here.
Complementary Therapies are holistic and Reflexology is no exception. When I work with you I work in a holistic manner and pay attention to the whole self. Reflexology is non-invasive, requires very little equipment and is very adaptable to your requirements. By working together my aim is to enhance your overall well-being by restoring balance to mind, body and soul.
I perform all treatments using only high quality waxes designed for use with Reflexology and Massage Therapy. They contain only naturally occurring ingredients so are suitable for sensitive or allergy prone skin (apart from nut allergies). In the event of a client having or being in contact with someone who has a nut allergy I use an alternative wax which contains beeswax and no nut oils. These highly moisturising waxes are solid at room temperature and melt into a liquid upon contact with body heat which can either be removed after treatment or left to absorb into the skin. I offer both unscented and scented waxes; please note that due to the presence of essential oils in the scented waxes it may not always be appropriate to use a wax of your choice but this will be discussed during your consultation.
