My name is Esther.

I live with my husband and son in

Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, UK.

I first developed an interest in Reflexology

after receiving treatments in 2005

and as result, I believe this

positively affected my sub-fertility.

I am now a busy mother

to a teenager and a lively

rescue Parson Russell Terrier,

both of whom keep me on my toes.

What is Reflexology?

The art of reflexology dates back over 5000 years

in Ancient Egypt, India and China.

This practice was further developed in the early 20th century,

into zone therapy whereby the body was mapped out on the feet and hands.

Today, modern reflexology is a deeply relaxing natural therapy which

uses precise finger and thumb reflexology techniques

on the feet, hands, face and ears to balance the whole-body system.

How does

reflexology work?

Reflexology works on the principle that

different points, or reflexes on the feet,

lower leg, hands and ears correspond

to the internal organs and other

structures of the body.


Stimulating these reflexes can aid

relaxation, reduce stress and tension,

aids sleep and improves mood, improves circulation, increases vitality and help

the body maintain overall

health and wellbeing.


Hot Stone Therapy is over 2000 years old and has been used all over the world.

Volcanic basalt stones retain their heat

and cold so are ideal for stone therapy.

The heat from the stones loosens

tight muscles, it soothes and engulfs

the client in a comforting warmth.

Hot Stone Reflexology involves using the smooth heated volcanic basalt stones to massage the

lower legs, penetrating deep into the layers of the muscles and on specific reflex points on the feet.

This releases tension at a deeper level to encourage deep relaxation, cleansing of the

organs and better elimination of waste from the body. The effect of hot stone reflexology is also

believed to last longer than a standard reflexology treatment.


Hot Stone reflexology feels like a luxurious and indulgent Spa treatment,

while also promoting relaxation at a deeper level to support the

healing and balancing of the body.

One stroke of the stone is equivalent to 5 strokes of the hand, penetrating

much deeper than thumb pressure - reaching around 7cm into the tissue.

The health benefits of hot stones include:

  • better circulation
  • increased elimination of waste products and toxins from your body
  • reduced muscle tension and a release of tension in connective tissue
  • strengthens your immune system
  • de-stresses and promotes relaxation

Hot Stones are not for everybody. There are some conditions where

heat is not recommended, including when there is inflammation such

as with rheumatoid arthritis, or skin conditions that can be

aggravated by moisture or heat, such as dermatitis.

What is the Menopause?

As reproductive hormones levels

fluctuate (oestrogen and progesterone),

menopause symptoms occur.

8 out of 10 women in the UK experience

some symptoms of the menopause from the

age of 51 (symptoms can start sooner -

premature ovarian failure).

Attitudes to the menopause are changing

and it is now recognised as a natural

process of aging, not an illness.

I am fully trained by Lorraine Senior in Functional Reflex Therapy

(FRT) and the Rainbow Relaxation Routine and I also deliver

Workshops to Parents and Carers.

FRT has been specifically created to support the emotional well-being

of children and adults with diverse needs and high levels of anxiety,

in the mainstream and special education environment

and a variety of other settings such as Care Homes.

Through the power of gentle touch and repetition when delivering the

Rainbow Relaxation Routine to the hands or feet, FRT supports the

body by reducing the stress hormone, cortisone and encourages the release

of our “happy hormone” oxytocin, thus making the therapy both calming and

enriching for the recipient.

Why use FRT?

  • Encourages Relaxation
  • Improves the mood
  • Reduces Anxiety
  • Supports Well-being
  • Encourages the body to balance

physically and emotionally

  • Encourages social interaction
