Cheshire Natural Health clinic’s director Tracey Turton knows from personal experience the the power of reflexology.
It was this first-hand experience that convinced her to train to become a reflexologist and eventually led to her opening the successful Cheshire Natural Health clinic and, as they say, the rest is history.
More of which in a moment…
Experience the power of reflexology
Simply put, reflexology is a natural therapy that is a truly relaxing process which may offer benefits to people with all kinds of common ailments. Tracey has used reflexology to support patients suffering from such things as stress, the menopause and fertility.
So, what is reflexology, exactly?
Reflexology is a non-invasive complementary therapy. It uses gentle pressure on precise points on the feet, ankles and hands. This influences corresponding parts of the body, soothing away tension.
It promotes deep relaxation, which in turn may normalise blood pressure and improve circulation. The aim of reflexology is to improve the overall physical and emotional health of the client.
During an hour’s treatment, circulation, energy flow, nerve and glandular systems are stimulated to help restore the body’s own natural balance.
It does this by helping to eliminate toxins and encouraging the body to revitalise itself.
Fertility Reflexology may also be very helpful in boosting your chances of conceiving.
Reflexology: a potted history
Using foot and hand massage to address health issues has been around for centuries. It is thought the ancient Egyptians used it for healing. Reflexology as a modern-day treatment was refined and developed in the 20th century, most notably by American Eunice Ingham. She was known as the ‘Mother of Reflexology’ and it is she who is credited with devising the modern system used by today’s practitioners.
What can I expect from a reflexology session?
At the first consultation a full medical history will be taken and your health issues and expectations will be discussed.
You will be required to remove your shoes and socks and relax on a treatment couch. For your comfort (and Tracey’s!) your feet are sprayed with a cleansing spray. Your feet will then be relaxed using special relaxation techniques and then pressure is applied in a specific way to all parts of the feet, paying particular attention to any areas that relate to your health concerns.
Certain points on the feet may feel slightly tender – this helps Tracey to identify areas of imbalance. The treatment is tailored to the individual – it can be relaxing or energising using light or firm pressure as required.
At the end of the treatment you will feel very relaxed, perhaps a little sleepy, and will leave with a great feeling of ‘well-being’.
Tracey has practised reflexology in Warrington and Cheshire since 1995.
She originally worked in National Account Management for large companies before she discovered first-hand the benefits of reflexology.
It was when she tried the gentle, natural techniques of reflexology on her husband who was suffering from a serious back injury that she became determined to change the course of her life and career.
As a consequence of this revelation, she trained as a Clinical Reflexologist with the Centre for Advanced Reflexology in Manchester.
Today she is a full member of the Association of Reflexologists. She regularly attends advanced training courses. These include Advanced Reflexology Therapy (ART), Vertical Reflex Therapy, Reflexology in Pregnancy, Energy Works, and Emotional Freedom Technique.
Tracey has a particular interest in anxiety and hormonal problems and has experience in treating children. She is also able to offer parents sessions on how to treat their own babies and children.
Tracey in the media
Tracey, her work and Cheshire Natural Health have featured in many local, regional and national publications. These include the Liverpool Echo, the Warrington Guardian, Sunday Express magazine and Zest magazine. She has also been interviewed on BBC radio, Real Radio and Channel M Television.
