Reflexology for Menopause

Fully qualified in reflexology for menopause

Perimenopause and the menopause are natural transitions in life but can feel anything but natural!  When looking up possible symptoms to seek clarity if it is or isn't the menopause the list is pretty expansive.  It's a process that some glide through while others feel overwhelmed with it all.   

 

Research has shown that cortisol increases as we age and go through perimenopause and menopause leading to many of the more unpleasant symptoms experienced in these stages (1).   This is why it is an important opportunity to pause and choose the best way of looking after yourself and managing the changes.

Reflexology can be a great help to relieve symptoms experienced during the menopause through stress reduction and improving our sense of wellbeing(2).  The more relaxed and happier we feel, the better equipped we are to take on lifestyle changes during this stage in life.

What happens during a treatment for menopause?

* First we will discuss your symptoms and chat about how you're feeling.

*You will have a treatment plan created for you based on our discussion, the treatment will last for an hour.

*At the end of the session I will give you some reflex points you can use at home on yourself.

 

How often should the treatments be?

Ideally a treatment weekly or fortnightly over 4-6 weeks and then on a monthly basis.
 
Treatment packages are available at £120 for four sessions.
