Welcome to The Reflexology Pod
Hello, my name is Moira and I am a Clinical Reflexologist and Occupational Therapist based in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire.
I qualified as an Occupational Therapist in 1996 and a Reflexologist in 2018.
What is reflexology? Reflexology is a complementary therapy which is based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears, correspond with different areas of the body. I believe that working these points or areas aids relaxation and helps improve wellbeing.
Simply put, the human body is amazing and complex. Generally, we feel well and happy when all our body systems work together and are in harmony. It doesn't take much to upset this harmony to make us feel "out of sorts" or "in pain" or "unhappy". Stresses and strains whether physical or emotional in one part of our body can contribute to imbalance somewhere else. By working specific reflex points on the feet, hands or ears this can encourage the body's own healing response and promote balance and well-being.
I am a graduate of the Contemporary Reflexology College, graduating in May 2018 with a Level 5 Diploma in Practitioner Reflexology.
The Level 5 Diploma is the highest reflexology qualification in the UK and I have completed specialist training in the following areas:
* Enhancing Fertility and Maternity Care
* Adapting Reflexology for Palliative Care
* Auricular (Ear) Reflexology
* Hand Reflexology
I aim to treat the person not the disease with a tailored treatment plan to encourage the body's natural healing response.
I am a member of the Association of Reflexologists. Details of my training and qualifications are below.
