Hello, I’m Cathy. I’m a fully qualified and insured Reflexologist based in the York area, offering mobile treatments in your own home or workplace.
I have worked in an office for over 20 years and have a partner and 3 sons. After going through a difficult time where I was hit with anxiety which impacted every area of my day to day life, I became interested in complementary therapies. I fell in love with reflexology and 3 years ago decided to obtain my Level 3 VTCT diploma in Clinical Reflexology at York Holistic Training.
Whether you are looking for support with an existing health condition, want to reduce your day-to-day stress levels or would just like a little “me” time, my aim is to help you feel calmer and improve your overall feeling of wellbeing with specially-tailored Reflexology treatments.
I am a full member of the Association of Reflexologists.
Reflexology is a wonderful way of maintaining your body’s healthy balance and general wellbeing, reducing the stresses and tensions that come with busy lifestyles and giving us a space to reflect on the mind as well as the body.
Reflexology can induce a deep state of relaxation, which improves the effectiveness of the treatment. Relaxing helps relieve tension and aids circulation, increasing the flow of nutrients, oxygen and energy to all parts of the body, and helping with the removal of toxins.
While it is not a cure, Reflexology can be particularly helpful in managing many health conditions, especially constant or recurring ones that we might have come to accept over time as being a normal part of life.
Reflexology is a holistic therapy based on the belief that all the systems, organs and structures of the body are reflected in specific reflex points in the hands, feet, ears or face. I currently work primarily on the feet but also the hands if preferred. By applying pressure to the areas of the feet or hands a Reflexologist can help the body restore its’ own healthy balance. The art of Reflexology dates back to Ancient Egypt and China and was introduced to the West as Zone Therapy in the 1900’s.
Reflexology aims to treat the individual as a whole, creating a state of harmony in both body and mind. It has the benefit of also being a deeply relaxing therapy, and during periods of relaxation the body takes the opportunity to heal, restore and energise itself. Usually after a treatment, your tension may be reduced and you may feel relaxed. You may notice a better sleep, and an improved sense of wellbeing. It is an individual therapy, and many people feel benefits after a single treatment. To maintain or see increased long term benefits you may need regular tailored treatments as part of your whole wellbeing journey.
Reflexology is suitable for all ages, from baby to adult, and can be especially helpful for long-term and recurring conditions. It is important to note that Reflexology does not diagnose and does not cure; as a complementary therapy it should not be considered an alternative to conventional medicine.
Here are a few of the more common conditions that can be supported through Reflexology:
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Headaches and migraines
Stress & tension
Hay fever & other allergies
PMT, PMS & menstrual problems
High blood pressure
Insomnia & sleep disorders
It is usually safe to have Reflexology alongside conventional medicine, but if you are currently having any medical treatment please speak to your GP before booking an appointment.
What my clients say…
“I have suffered with regular migraines for years. Since having regular Reflexology with Cathy, I feel a lot better and I don’t get them as often”
“Today I had my first ever Reflexology session and it certainly won’t be the last. Cathy was amazing, she really listens to all your health and relaxation needs. Cathy tailors the appointment to give you maximum benefit. Very professional and COVID safe experience. Already booked my next one!”
“Cathy is truly amazing! I’ve had massages for years and never been able to properly relax but after a few sessions with Cathy I would be so relaxed I would often nod off. Cathys understanding of your body through Reflexology really helps you to improve your lifestyle to live a happier, healthier life. I really cannot recommend Cathy enough.”
“Absolutely amazing experience, would recommend to anyone. I am finding it’s helping reduce sciatica pain on top of de-stressing me! If you’ve never tried it, please do, Cathy is very talented!”
