Fertility, Pregnancy and Post-Natal
I have a keen interest in all aspects of natural health and medicine but have a special interest in all aspects of fertility, pregnanacy, post-natal, babies and children. I think having children myself and using my treatments and remedies throughout my motherhood journey, for me and my children, has given me a great understanding and insight of how benefical natural medicine can be.
When studying for my Homeopathy degree, my dissertation was on Fertility and Pregnancy. I have had many patients come to me through the years wanting help with enhancing their fertility and had much success in this area. A combination of Reflexology and Homeopathy is very effective in helping to increase fertility.
Natural health treatments and medicines are also very beneficial for problems during pregnancy, such as morning sickness, exhaustion, swelling, back ache and many of the other 'delights' that can happen while you are pregnant. I offer Homeopathy at all stages of pregnancy, (particularly effective for combating morning sickness) and other treatments for people in their 2nd and 3rd trimesters. Reflexology and Aromatherapy massage are particularly beneficial during pregnancy.
Back, Neck and Shoulder Pain
I also specialise in back, neck and shoulder problems. Over the years I have helped many people in severe pain or with chronic problems in this area. I have lots of clients who have a regular massage as maintenance, which helps stop the back problems coming back and minimise visits to the chiropractor. Hot Stone Massage is especially effective in muscular pain as the warmth of the stones goes so deeply into the muscles, encouraging relaxation and helping to release toxins and lactic acid built up in the muscles.
I also offer an Advance Back Massage Treatment, which incorporates, Hot Stone Massage, Warm Bamboo Massage, (literally irons out muscular tension), Trigger Point Massage, Homeopathy and Aromatherapy. This is a very deep massage and I only offer this to people who are generally fit and healthy but have back or muscular problems.
A few years ago I worked in the cancer ward at Poole Hospital which also included working at the Forest Holme Hospice. I feel it was a great privilge to work in both these environments and with the people I worked with and treated.
I learnt many things from my time at Poole Hospital, including; what and how cancer treatments are given at Poole hospital; the effects the cancer and the treatments can have on a person; and the benefits of aromatherapy and reflexology for people with cancer and those receiving end of life care.
This has led me to specialise in this area as the benefits are so helpful during these difficult times. One of the most popular treatments I have found people get the most relief from is Reiki, one lady said to me, "From the minute you put your hands on me, the pain is gone." I also think Homeopathy, Aromatherapy and Reflexology are a wonderful support for people with a cancer diagnosis.
Stress and Anxiety
The world we live in now can often lead to stress, anxiety. Our minds and emotions are constantly bombarded with advertisements, main stream media and social media. These can lead to negative emotions such as low self-esteem, inadequacy and feeling that you are not good enough and always need to do, be or achieve more. These influences may make you lose sight of who you truly are, your worth, your strengths and your beliefs and doubt yourself and your place in society.
Our lives are often a juggling act, trying to balance work, family and finances. Corporate greed can make workplaces difficult to work for with longer hours and high and often unreachable expectations from their workforce. People feel unappreciated and under valued.
Many people, especially at the moment, are feeling isolated, lonely or alone. There are dividing opinions in the world and many people feel they are not understood or listened to.
All these aspects in modern life, and many more, can have a huge detrimental effect on our health, all elements; mental, physical, emotional and spiritual. I have many people who come to me who feel emotionally or mentally exhausted, drained or completely off-balance. My aim is to help support people in this area and provide them with tools and treatments to regain a sense of well-being, balance and vitality and to feel happy again. Everybody is different but the treatments I have found that work particularly well in this area are, Homeopathy, Indian Head Massaage, Reiki and Reflexology.
