I am delighted to say that to date all of my clients that have suffered with headaches or migraines have seen a huge improvement in these through reflexology. They have experienced fewer incidences or less severe attacks, and in some cases symptoms have ceased all together. Reflexology works to support sufferers of headaches and migraines through returning the body back into balance, allowing the harmony of body and mind to prevail in the midst of busyness, and pressures placed upon it by modern day living.
According to Nico Pauly (MNT-NR), migraine is a result of a sensitised sympathetic nervous system in connection with trigeminal nerve activity and inflammation in cerebra blood flow. Throughout your Sole Therapy Reflexology sessions, from the initial consultation, where we discuss medical history and lifestyle, and during subsequent consultations, I am looking for patterns in the occurrences and your potential migraine triggers.

I am a mum of 2 young boys and prior to becoming a reflexologist I worked within health and education. I am a former Midwife and have also worked in adult education and schools with children with additional needs. As a Midwife, I became frustrated with hospital policies, time limits and staffing, all of which prevented me from being able to give the quality of care and time that I wished to give to families at this precious time in their lives. Working with children and adults in a variety of roles, has helped develop my knowledge and skills in working with people from all walks of life.
