Reflexology 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 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.

Hi, my name is Alex and I am really excited to be working from the YOU Massage & Therapy Centre.

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…
My interest in massage and learning of new techniques lead me on to Japan, where I’ve stayed for 6 years. That time I had the chance to study about zen as a philosophy, as a lifestyle, as a massage therapist also I learnt a lot about Reiki healing and Japanese culture and language.
