Your Reflexologist and Woman behind LUNA WELLNESS
The nature of life today seems to bring more and more mounting pressures, our lives are so fast, with seemingly little time to step back from it all and relax, and the resulting stress leading to many avoidable illnesses.
It doesn't have to be this way!
With just a little self care, you can transform your physical and mental health, and the wellbeing of your whole family.
One fantastic way of introducing quality self care is with reflexology.
Reflexology taps into your body's inherent healing wisdom and can help support the body with whatever it needs at the time, whether you want to reduce stress, relieve pain or simply maintain a sense of well-being. The beauty of reflexology is that you don’t have to wait until you’re unwell or in pain to enjoy its benefits.
Being a non-invasive therapy, reflexology is suitable for people of all ages and is extremely therapeutic during pregnancy.
Whatever your reasons for wanting to experience the wonders of reflexology, I can support you in finding a reflexology approach that resonates with you and your own, unique body.
My Journey from Burnt Out to Breakthrough
I first discovered reflexology during pregnancy when looking for additional support in preparing my body and mind for a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean). I later discovered more about the amazing benefits of this therapy and knew it would be an incredibly useful tool to support my young growing family.
Being a lover of all things holistic, I decided to embrace my interests and immerse myself in the complementary therapy field and retrain as a reflexologist.
When I became a mother, I rarely took the time to care for myself and I suffered the consequences. I exhausted myself even beyond the expected fatigue every new mum experiences. In an attempt to overcompensate for my own childhood, I was putting all of my children’s needs before my own, and I fell into the role of a martyr.
This, ironically, meant I was quite quickly depleted of the strength and mental capacity to deal with my children’s needs and wants; my cup was running dry and I had nothing left to give, which of course, only made the wrenching mum-guilt even louder.
I became someone I didn't recognise and a person I hadn’t intended to be. I was reactive, anxious and overwhelmed. The mental breakdown came first, and then the physical crash followed, I lost weight, my hair was thinning, along with other unexplained symptoms — and I finally had the realisation that something needed to change.
It was a long hard road back to myself, but one that was so worth taking.
I learnt the tough way that self care isn’t selfish, and as a mum especially, it shouldn’t be an afterthought — it should be a non-negotiable! Indeed, when you invest in yourself and your own health and happiness, your family benefits indefinitely.
On my quest to bring balance and harmony back into my life, I dove into researching ways to support myself in body, mind and spirit. I have found that the evidence is in overwhelming support of reflexology’s efficacy on all of these levels.
This is why I am now so passionate about helping YOU, through the practice of reflexology, to discover the importance of filling yourself up so that you can better help others from a healthy place of energy, vitality and happiness. It is so important as women and mothers to have that respect for ourselves and to support and love ourselves so we can love others in the ways we want to.
You can make this nourishing time for yourself through the wonderful tool of reflexology, to restore balance in any and all areas of your life.
I have had great success with my clients in using reflexology for pregnancy, pain relief, IBS management, and even in helping my children relax and unwind before bedtime (see, it’s miraculous!). I have also witnessed its abilities to soothe pre-labour anxiety, assist dilation and facilitate smooth and quick birthing.
If you’ve found yourself depleted and overwhelmed, struggling physically or mentally, or if you just want to make sure you don’t find yourself in that martyr role, feel free to contact me to discover how reflexology can help you.
