REFLEXOLOGY LYMPH DRAINAGE (RLD)

reflexology lymph drainageReflexology is wonderfully healing non invasive therapy, it can help the body to ‘detox’ and reduce swelling by stimulating the Lymphatic System. Here, our in house Reflexology Specialist, Alex, explains this targeted treatment.

Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD) is an award winning reflexology technique which focuses on stimulating the lymphatic reflexes on the feet; it is a very gentle treatment and the aim is to cause an effect on the lymphatic system in the body. It is a unique sequence that has been researched and developed by Sally Kay BSc (Hons), whilst working in Cancer Care but her protocol has also been found effective in treating clients suffering with problems such as lymphoedema, plus many more (for more information, see www.reflexologylymphdrainage.co.uk) I am lucky enough to have trained with Sally and I have found that RLD has added a whole new dimension to my work…

FACIAL REFLEXOLOGY

Facial Reflexology works by using gentle facial massage techniques for precise stimulation of reflex points, nerve points and zones on the face and scalp.  As with hand or foot reflexology, there are points on the face that represent areas and systems within the body.

The aim is to help reduce symptoms and effects of many common ailments but also to provide total relaxation, thus encouraging the body and mind to start to heal. The face has a high density of reflex points which are very sensitive to signals sent by the organs and other areas of the body and their response to stimulation is quickly transmitted to the part of the body concerned. The proximity of the face to the brain and cranial nerves is what makes this therapy so effective.

Some of the benefits of Facial Reflexology are:

Introducing Master of Reiki: Jane

Hello, I thought I would introduce myself so you would know a little more about me and my Therapies and how I became a Therapist.

My name is Jane and I was very fortunate to have been around Healing Energy from a very young age. This background gave me the passion and inspiration to delve into how Healing Energy Therapies work and I have been lucky enough to make this my life time’s work.

The journey has taken me far and wide and to some very unusual places; America with the Native Americans to look at their healing which I learnt and to New Zealand to learn all about the Maori Healing which I studied for a year whilst living there. I was lucky enough to be taught by a true blooded Maori and I was welcomed into the Maori Tribe and given a Waterfall blessing!

Healing is very close to my heart and I have many Accredited Healing Therapies under my belt and I am able to teach many of these. I have learnt that there are many benefits to receiving a Healing Therapy and having a compassionate nature means I will always draw on my experience to deliver the best Healing session I can for my clients. The best reward of all for a Therapist is to see her client contented and happy after a treatment.

I am a fully trained Reiki Master Teacher and Therapist and I’m affiliated to the Reiki Guild.

I am looking forward to connecting with you

Hi, my name is Alex and I am really excited to be working from the YOU Massage & Therapy Centre. I specialise in Reflexology, also offering Indian Head Massage and Reiki and my aim as a therapist is to tailor your treatments to meet your individual needs to help improve your well-being. I love working with both the physical and the spiritual aspects of a person and I strive to connect and balance the two together. These therapies work well on their own or in combination.

My personal journey started many years ago when certain unexplained, and at times debilitating ailments, led me to look at therapies that could complement medical diagnoses, not just for myself, but also for certain members of my family.

 

After much researching, I came across reflexology and was amazed that by applying pressure to places on the feet, it could alter some of the imbalances that our bodies were showing. I was so amazed by it that I decided to train as a reflexologist so I could help others and I haven’t looked back since. Reflexology has become one of the most important things my world; I love everything about it and I have studied it at length. I use different techniques either as stand-alone treatments and or in combination. These include…

Western Acupuncture – Dry Needling – with Osteopath Edward

Southampton AcupunctureSouthampton Osteopath, Ed Webb, offers Dry Needling from our Bedford Place studio

What is dry needling?

The popular treatment of dry needling (as opposed to wet needling such as Botox, corticosteroids, anaesthetics etc), also known as western or medical acupuncture, is frequently used by health care professionals such as osteopaths, physiotherapists, chiropractors and even some GPs.

By effectively isolating problem areas on the body, namely myofascial trigger points, the therapist can deliver fine acupuncture needles intramuscularly. Several studies have shown immediate improvements in pain and/or disability by targeting trigger points in this way, and there is no shortage of clients and patients who can advocate the outstanding effects of this ever-popular treatments.

How does Dry needling it work?

The proposed mechanism of dry needling involves the mechanical disruption of the integrity of dysfunctional endplates, alterations in the length and tension of muscle fibres and stimulation of mechanoreceptors, increased muscle blood flow and oxygenation, and endogenous opioid release affecting peripheral and central sensitization, among others.

What on earth does that all mean I hear you say?

Essentially, dry needling therapy induces a stimulatory effect on the body’s tissues, which helps kickstart the body’s own painkilling and healing capabilities; amazing right? Osteopaths amongst many other practitioners and therapists have known for a long time about the internal powers our bodies possess to heal themselves, our job is merely to bring about and facilitate this change and reach equilibrium.
