"Language of the soul Speaks in many ways"
What is reflexology
Modern reflexology is based on the ancient form of hand and foot massage therapy, evidence suggests that China have been using the application of pressure for over 5000 years, also at the same time in Egypt as depicted in the Tomb of Ankmahor. Native American tribes believed massaging the feet was very important to maintain physical, mental and spiritual wholeness.
How does Reflexology work
Reflexology works on the principle that the whole person is treated, there are over 7000 nerve endings on each foot that are directly linked to parts of the body called reflexes, these reflexes correspond to every gland, organ & body systems.
The feet are mapped with the body’s anatomy and each part of the feet are divided using zones that run along the feet, much like the meridians of energy pathways used in acupuncture and acupressure, each zone on the feet are connected to organs, glands & systems in the body.
Fingers and thumbs are used to apply pressure on a reflex to stimulate a particular zone on the foot, this sends energy or a message through the nervous system in the corresponding area – for example, stimulating the kidney & bladder area can release fear & anxiety and bring strength to help the body heal, applying pressure around the lung area on the feet can release old grief, stimulating the head point will clear sinus, migraine, brain fog and reset this area plus any other organs associated in this zone. Helps to rebalance & relieve joint and muscular tension. Every organ, glands and body systems can be accessed via reflex points.
Reflexology is a powerful treatment & every person has a different experience depending on your current health and wellbeing, it will address any areas that need attention.
Reflexology works depending on the persons needs, it aims to heal and restore areas within the body, mentally, physically, energetically and spiritually.

“I have just had the most healing and body restorative session with Lorraine. Lorraine is so welcoming and warm and the therapy room is a Haven of tranquillity.
Once inside you are provided with a robe and slippers and invited into a comfy chair; this is the start of the magic.
Lorraine is 100% thorough and gets to the root of the problem."
I have had both massages and holistic treatments from Lorraine she is a brilliant therapist that can tune right into the body and get to the actual cause of your body and muscles being stressed and tense, I can’t recommend enough how powerful and beautiful her treatments are.
Lorraine is fantastic with make making you feel relaxed and comfortable during a Reiki session (I would definitely describe myself as a nervous person). The immense feeling of calmness like you were floating is indescribable. I had lost my dad a few years ago and during the Reiki session I felt like I was reliving a lovely memory.
I would absolutely recommend Lorraine for emotional and physical relief through Reiki.
I had such an amazing treat today from an unexpected gift received that allowed me to experience a session with Lorraine today, she is a fabulous person and healer and I felt like a new person leaving.
I’ve been to see Lorraine for both a deep tissue massage and for a shamanic journeying session. The shamanic journey was new for me, but what I got from it was a wonderful journey into your own mind and inner thoughts, opening up a new world, which I see as increasing my resilience, and which has become a safe haven to go to when stressed or overwhelmed.
I highly recommend going to see Lorraine!
"I highly recommend you book an appointment with Lorraine, she has a wonderful range of skills and a warm, healing approach.
Will definitely be back."
