I’ve always felt we neglect our feet, yet they carry the full weight of our bodies, needing to be firmly grounded with the earth beneath us, absorbing its immense energy. Feet are extremely receptive and yet we often choose to ignore them.
I trained as a general nurse over 30 years ago and gained my degree in 2012. Until qualifying as a reflexologist, I had previously spent many years as a recovery and anaesthetic nurse, and have been working more recently with brain acquired injury patients. My interest in the nervous system under anaesthesia and in brain injuries, in a roundabout way, link in with reflexology, after all, there are 7,000 - 7,200 nerve endings in each human foot alone!
Reflexology itself is a precise holistic therapy, not to be confused with a beauty treatment, and works on the whole body including mind, spirit and emotions. It does not claim to diagnose or cure, but with 80% of illnesses thought to be linked to stress, experience shows that very positive benefits may be gained through the use of reflexology. Being a reflexologist at level 5 is the highest level of training in the UK, and means the sessions I give are very much from a clinical and therapeutic approach, taking into account both physical and non-physical factors that might affect your well-being. It involves individualised assessment, treatment planning and evaluation, as well as a thoroughly relaxing foot massage at the end.
I practice reflexology in the Haslemere & Farnham area and have clients from the surrounding counties of Surrey, Hampshire and West Sussex.
When I had my first session of reflexology I have to admit I was a bit sceptical but after a 6 week course of treatments I was a complete convert! I have suffered from hay fever and other allergies for nearly 40 years but this year I had virtually no symptoms in a year that was particularly bad for hay fever sufferers. Susanne is a very warm and engaging person and I felt totally relaxed in her very capable hands. I will definitely be back for more treatments.
I consulted Susanne recently for reflexology and was impressed both by her empathetic approach and her professionalism. At the initial consultation she took a comprehensive case-history which reassured me she had a thorough understanding of the problem, and during subsequent treatment sessions her touch was confident, gentle and effective. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone seeking reflexology.
