    A safe natural therapy to ease stress, promote relaxation and balance your body for improved well-being.

Welcome to Lavender Room Reflexology –
a place for Relaxation and Restoration

A safe natural therapy to ease stress, promote relaxation and balance your body for improved well-being.

Reflexology

Modern reflexology is based on the ancient Chinese principle that our feet and hands act as a mirror image of our body. By applying a specific type of pressure using fingers and thumbs to these reflex points, reflexology can stimulate the body’s natural self-healing capacity to rebalance, restore and recharge.

Reflexology is a safe non-invasive complimentary therapy recognised by the NHS and many GPs.  It can support you alongside western medicine to promote your well-being.  It is not an alternative to seeking medical professional advice as reflexologists cannot diagnose or cure illness.

Reflexology is suitable for all ages and can support you physically and emotionally.  People seek reflexology for many reasons.

Examples include;

Reduction in pain

Improved circulation

Rebalancing of hormones

Back issues

Poor sleep

Stress

Relaxation

Menopause

Fertility

Pregnancy

In our busy world it is essential we listen to our body’s, that we reduce our stress levels, sleep better, enjoy downtime and relax.  Reflexology can help you achieve this.

“Look after your feet and they will look after you”

Maternity Reflexology

Becoming pregnant is the beginning of a new and exciting phase in your life, it will bring significant changes both physically and emotionally to your body and mind.  Your emotions may not only revolve around excitement, you may feel overwhelmed or vulnerable as your body adapts for your growing baby and you prepare for birth and parenthood.

Reflexology can support you throughout your pregnancy, as it aims to optimise your physical and emotional health and well-being.   It is a safe, natural and non-intrusive therapy for you and your baby, however, it is recommended you find a reflexologist who is trained and confident to support you during pregnancy.  A full history taken at your initial consultation and updated regularly throughout your pregnancy will ensure it is appropriate for you through each of the trimesters.  There are a few conditions that contraindicate having reflexology, and further consent may be required from your midwife or consultant.

Emma an Ex Intensive Care nurse is a highly trusted, respected and experienced reflexologist who will personally support you throughout your pregnancy and beyond, she has undertaken the highest level of reflexology training available in the UK, undertaken advanced pregnancy training and is recommended by local midwives.  Emma has successfully supported many women through pregnancy and helped them achieve a positive birth experience, by ensuring they feel calm, relaxed and prepared.

One huge benefit of receiving reflexology during pregnancy is that it allows you time away from your busy life to relax in peaceful surroundings and focus on you and your growing baby.  At the Lavender Room you are guaranteed peace, relaxation and comfort with a room and comfortable chair to ensure you feel safe and relaxed.

Many women are now choosing reflexology throughout their pregnancy and postnatally because it offers so many benefits;

supporting hormonal changes,  aiding relaxation, reducing stress and anxiety, improving sleep, reducing birth anxiety, alleviate traumatic birth experiences

For other women it can be to support them with common conditions that can arise such as

nausea, vomiting, constipation, back pain, heart burn, pelvic girdle pain, insomnia

The first trimester is a time of huge hormonal changes, anxieties and concerns for the changes that are going to happen.  This may leave you feeling delighted, anxious, elated, tearful, exhausted.  Emma will support you through these changes with the aim of relaxing and de-stressing you, and focusing on your individual needs.

During the second and third trimester many discomforts from early pregnancy have gone.  As your baby grows you may experience different discomforts, Emma will adapt and change your treatment to support your changing body.  Your stress levels may also increase as the birth becomes more imminent, Emma will support you through this and focus on your emotionally well-being and help you prepare your body for birth.

During the last few weeks you may wish to have weekly treatments to prepare your body for birth.  Reflexology cannot make your baby arrive on time but it can help you relax and reduce your stress hormones, leaving you feeling calmer and prepared for birth.

Pre-Conception & Fertility Reflexology

Fertility Reflexology is a relaxing, calm holistic therapy that uses pressure points on your feet with the aim to ease physical or emotional stress.  Conception is a complex matter of health and wellbeing and needs a balance to be successful.  Reflexology aims to bring a balance to your body and can help to alleviate tension and promote relaxation thus bringing real benefits for couples who are trying to conceive.

When trying for a baby either naturally or with the support of assisted conception programmes such as IVF and ICSI it can be an incredibly stressful and emotional journey.  Women trying to conceive are more likely to experience heightened anxiety or depression than women in general, which only increases as time goes on and you do not fall pregnant.

How might reflexology help?

Firstly evidence is growing that shows how reflexology can aid relaxation, improve  mood levels, improve sleep, relieve tension and boost general wellbeing – all things which can be negatively impacted when we’re feeling stressed, anxious and depressed. Stress can have a huge impact on our body and effect our immune system, hormone levels and reproductive system. In this context, we can begin to see the potential benefits of a reflexology session.

Having a regular treatment may help you relax, de-stress, reduce your anxiety, aid sleep and help your body condition improve ready for conception to occur.  By balancing your hormones and shifting cycle irregularities, often caused by stress, you will help to create the right conditions to encourage ovulation and conception.

Anxiety can also affect your ability to conceive and Fertility Reflexology might help to quieten your mind if you are feeling stressed about treatments such as IVF and ICSI. Many IVF clinics now support reflexology alongside their fertility treatments.

Having been through fertility challenges herself, Emma understands how stress can impact our bodies, now as a mother of 2 she can draw on her  own experiences and use this knowledge including nursing knowledge to help you through your fertility journey.  Fertility reflexology is a specialism for Emma, trained in  fertility reflexology to support you and understand your experiences her  tailored reflexology sessions focus on stress reduction and hormonal balancing, sessions combining emotional support with reflexology, as well as a deeper, much more focussed approach using advanced reflexology techniques.

Emma has  successfully supported many women on their conception journey, and has experience working with unexplained infertility, PCOS, endometriosis and reoccurring miscarriages.

 

Emma has been featured in the May 2020 edition of the Mother & Baby magazine with one of her clients sharing her fertility, pregnancy and post-natal journey and how reflexology helped her.

 

Many of my clients have reflexology to complement medical treatments including clomid stimulation, egg donation, IUI, IVF/ICSI.  The session will work alongside your IVF drug protocol, frozen embryo or donor cycle. If for some reason you are not sure speak to your clinic first.

Reflexology is suitable at all stages of a monthly cycle and during early pregnancy. However if you are not already having regular reflexology sessions, you may prefer to postpone starting treatments until you are twelve weeks pregnant.

Fertility Reflexology is not a medical treatment and reflexologists cannot diagnose medical conditions. Although reflexology complements conventional medical treatments, it should not be used as a replacement for medical advice. If you are concerned about your health please visit your GP.

What our customers say about us

Having read through most of the previous reviews, I am about to say something surprising. Reflexology also works for men. That is right, I have said it! And Emma is doing a fantastic job of it. She has helped me with back, shoulder, neck issues with her magic hands. Her approach to well-being encompasses so much more than standard feet reflexology, . Emma has managed to soothe both my levels of stress and muscle tension through a 2 pronged approach of feet, face reflexology. In one word, Emma is a gem and I would strongly recommend her for the sense of calm, relaxation and wellbeing she always provides to her customers during and after treatment. I will not hesitate to bring our future baby to Emma for baby reflexology treatments should the need arise.

It was suggested to me that I tried reflexology to relax and prepare myself for the arrival of my baby as in my first pregnancy I went over due and had an induction. i was keen to avoid that this time!
Emma was recommended to me by my midwife. I contacted her straight away as I had heard she was very busy! almost immediately Emma contacted me to arrange my first appointment.
during my first appointment Emma helped not only with pregnancy problems but also with an old injury I had! I left feeling amazing and on cloud 9, needless to say I booked in monthly right up to my due date!

we were convinced I would deliver ontime or atleast close to my “guess date” but alas baby had other ideas, so at 41 weeks I messaged Emma begging her to see me on the Friday (42 weeks). unfortunately she had no appointments, but she did have a cancellation on the Thursday.

whilst at the appointment I started to have regular contractions every 10 minutes! I told Emma on the day and I’ll say it again! she has magic hands!! after a tearful good bye I drove home (slowly as the contractions continued!!)

I gave birth to my beautiful daughter the next morning at 5.43am, at home as planned.
Emma has been a great addition to my pregnancy journey and I have now booked to do the tiny toes course as well as some me time for the new year to keep me balanced.

thank you for being so amazing

I have been going to Emma for over a year now, she is quiet simply the BEST Reflexology Therapist I have ever seen. Though stressful times, emotional times and now that ‘peri-menopausal time’ she works wonders, keeps me balanced and keeps me sane! I recommend 100%.

Emma

This ladies hands should be available on prescription.

Rachel

I had my first reflexology session with Emma on weds & took along my 8 week baby. We snuggled up in her comfy chair & had the most lovely, calming experience. I went in stressed & pent up & came out feeling positive & bright. Would thoroughly recommend to other new mums!! Thank you Emma!!! Xxx

Emma was recommended to me by a friend as I’d been searching for someone in the area who did hopi ear candles. For the past three years I’ve suffered from bad hay fever and sinitus. After trying various tablets and sprays from the doctors I finally gave Hopi candles a try whilst in a spa break. Since then I cannot recommend them enough, they give myself instant relief from the majority of symptoms i suffer from and to top it off it’s a relaxing, enjoyable treatment. I now see Emma at least once a month and combine mine with facial reflexology. The reflexology Emma provides takes you to a completely new level of relaxation! This has helped with stress levels and various other things. Before trying this approach I had always been very sceptical about alternative treatments and would solely rely on medication from doctors or pharmacies so my experience has completely changed my way of thinking of how to aid various issues.
Therefore I would highly recommend Emma and her beautiful room to anyone wishing to try a different approach.

Laura

I was sceptical at first, but now I would recommend anyone try reflexology. Since seeing Emma I have found myself more relaxed and more in balance, she is great and her room setup at her home is professional, welcoming and relaxed.
