I am 54, happily married and live just north of Brighton. We have two children, two dogs, two guinea pigs, two gerbils, a tortoise, and various ducks and chickens. We grow as much as we can on our own land, and take every opportunity to use the eggs laid in the garden - if the dogs don't get them first! I love walking, experiencing nature, swimming, I sing, and I love meeting people.
As a reflexologist my approach is holistic - when I treat a client it is not with the intention to provide a cure: it is to provide some sort of relief, time out and ease from the pain that they might be in - whether physical or emotional. My work runs alongside medical care and its purpose is to introduce balance and a sense of meaning into my client's life. For some reflexology means just relaxation, for others relief from pain, and for others entirely a means by which they can receive not intrusive but meaningful touch. Reflexology involves massage of the foot, and then working with different systems of the body -as mapped out on the feet. My touch is firm, but I work closely with the client to vary that touch according to their likes and dislikes, and also according to their needs.
I emigrated from Zimbabwe in my early 30s, and settled in the UK. Due to various physical limitations I have always been familiar with pain, and as such i have been drawn back into complementary therapy (I did Massage Therapy in Zimbabwe some time ago). I have been able to see the real difference both massage and reflexology can make to the quality of my life and to the ways in which I manage everyday stresses and strains. I now want to provide something of the same to people who feel the need to relax, destress, and to begin to bring some form of balance to their lives.
