Fiona Knowles – BSc (Hons) RGN, MAR, MIIR
I am a qualified Clinical Reflexologist. I trained with the International Institute of Reflexology, receiving a Diploma in 1995. I have also recently received extra training and qualification in Maternity reflexology (including infertility, pregnancy and post-natal treatments). I am a full member of the Association of Reflexologists which gives assurance of a quality Reflexologist trained to a specific high standard.
I am also a qualified Registered General Nurse, and I work part time in a Minor Injury Unit as a Nurse Practitioner. I live in Calverley, and I am married with 2 children.
Reflexology is a complementary therapy that deals with the principle that there are reflex areas on the feet and hands that correspond to the glands, organs and parts of the body. By applying gentle pressure to these reflexes it aims to stimulate the body’s own healing by improving blood supply and the unblocking of energy and nerve impulses.
Leading a busy lifestyle can take its toll on the body making you feel run down, lethargic, vulnerable to colds, infection, muscular tension etc. Reflexology can help by boosting your body’s immune system, improving circulation and stimulating the lymphatic system to cleanse the body of toxins. It can encourage a state of balance especially to the nervous and endocrine (hormonal) system.
Most people feel a deep sense of relaxation during a treatment. Following a treatment you may sleep better and notice a release of stress and tension. Many have a feeling of mental calmness and clear thinking, an improved mood and a feeling of general well-being. You will hopefully find the therapy re-energising and uplifting. These benefits can last several days after treatment.
Reflexology has been shown to help with the following conditions:-
Stress and anxiety
Hormonal imbalances including PMS and menopause
Migraines & headaches
Muscle and joint problems
Back and neck pain
Auto immune disorders
Most importantly the treatment gives you an hour of ‘me time’ to completely relax, recharge and rebalance your mind and body.
