There is a chill in the air today and the leaves on the trees are starting to show signs of autumn. There is change in our family too...my eldest son has recently started Secondary School and my youngest has just moved from Infant School on to Juniors. Time seems to be flying by as I remember them both starting school so clearly. With these changes, I thought it was a good time to look at my business and see if there is anything I can do to meet the needs of my clients more.
I have recently integrated 'Structural Reflexology' into my practice. This approach focuses on the anatomy of the foot and lower leg, releasing tension in the muscles and tendons to allow for correct function. I have been using this to help clients with skeletal and muscle pain and tightness in the lower back, pelvis and legs, in order to bring greater relief. Many clients have found this approach beneficial. I always consider how I can bring the biggest improvement for each client, every time I see them. This approach, gives me another tool to use to meet this aim.
As many readers will be aware, I can get very busy. I feel very fortunate to help so many people and that they often spread the word of how Sole Therapy Reflexology has benefited them. This means, that the vast majority of my clients are recommendations and repeat bookings. I usually book up 2-3 weeks in advance, but over the last couple of months this did get to 4-5 weeks. This has lessened, but with this in mind, I have decided to offer Saturday appointments, on the first Saturday of each month. I'm really hoping that this will help with availability of appointments, especially for those who work full time or have limited availability.
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.
