REFLEXOLOGY IN BRIXHAM
WHAT IS REFLEXOLOGY?
Reflexology is a natural, non-invasive, drug-free complementary therapy. Finger or thumb pressure is applied to specific points on the feet, lower leg or hands. The premise is that our feet reflect the organs and structures of the body and stimulating these points improves circulation encouraging the body to heal itself thus improving health and emotional well-being. The fundamental intention of every treatment is to restore the body to homeostasis. This is the condition where the body’s internal environment remains relatively constant within physiological limits and where the body is in balance.
A TYPICAL TREATMENT
At your first treatment you will have an initial consultation including a confidential medical questionnaire and you will be asked to sign a consent form for treatment. Each treatment lasts an hour starting with an examination of the feet, followed by finger and thumb pressure being applied to each of the reflexes. Occasionally some reflexes may be tender but these feelings are usually transient and you should experience a relaxing treatment. You remain clothed, just removing socks and shoes.
First and foremost reflexology is an enjoyable and relaxing treatment, a break from the stressful world we live in. It gives you 'me' time, an hour to nurture your health and well-being.
Benefits can include: release of tension, improved sleep, improved mood, coping with stress better and improved sense of well-being.

I have always been passionate about complementary therapies, in particular reflexology and know from personal experience what an invaluable tool they can be for improved health and well-being. Following a successful career in broadcasting I decided to retrain at the renowned Devon School of Reflexology. It is one of only six schools in the country affiliated to the Association of Reflexologists and a centre of excellence. I was awarded distinction in my diploma.
I am a member of the highly respected Association of Reflexologists (MAR) so you can have confidence that I have been trained to a high, nationally recognised standard (Level 3 diploma) and I am bound by the AOR Code of Practice & Ethics. My learning continues each year whilst practising through Continuing Professional Development. I am fully insured to practice reflexology from my home in Brixham.
I believe that a work/life balance is important to everyone's sense of well-being and I make sure I look after my own health by attending regular pilates classes, swimming in the sea along the wonderful Torbay coastline and of course having reflexology treatments myself!
What My Clients Say
A wonderfully calming experience!
I've been going for reflexology for months now and yet before I took the decision to go I knew very little about what to expect.
So if you've ever wondered about what it is or about giving it a go you must book a treatment with Jo. All will become clear and be explained.
Jo creates just the right balance of a calm and friendly environment to allow you to relax and enjoy the treatment.
I always leave feeling relaxed and look forward to returning. I recommend Jo wholeheartedly.
Being a reflexology novice, I was blown away by the feeling of wellbeing generated by Jo's treatment and now I can't imagine life without my regular monthly sessions. She is so sensitive to both my physical and emotional health and I really do feel recharged by the time I leave the relaxing ambience of her treatment room. An experience not to miss in my opinion!
