Reflexology is holistic complementary therapy which addresses the whole body rather than individual symptoms and most people can benefit. Reflexology is a gentle hands on therapy using touch on different points of the feet, lower limb and hands, these specific points correspond with different areas of the body. Reflexologists will focus on different points depending on your individual circumstances to help promote deep relaxation.

People with the following problems come for reflexology:
- stress and anxiety
- high blood pressure

- fertility issues
- stress related sleep disorders
- pain relief
- breathing disorders e.g. asthma
- headaches and migraines
- sinus problems
- hormonal imbalances
- mental health issues e.g. depression
- poor circulation
- post-operative recovery

‘……Following my miscarriage earlier in the year, I struggled to get my cycles back on track. Put it down to my body realigning or stress, I was willing to try any suggestions to fall pregnant again! Alongside following my cycle, I dabbled with acupuncturists and nutritionists. Neither of the aforementioned rung accord with me.
I do clearly remember my first session with Norah though. She was the one and only person who really acknowledged my circumstance and what I had been through as something I was, and indeed should be, sad about. I am fortunate to have an incredible support network of friends and family who rally to my side at the first sign of trouble or distress. However, I felt the predominant message was. - “it could be worse”.
Norah was very much a therapist AND reflexologist for me…..’ She has been such a huge part of my journey to motherhood and I will be eternally grateful.’
‘Norah was a ray of light that was so needed as my husband and I navigated our way through an incredibly tough fertility journey. We both always left the treatment room feeling calm and relaxed and I have no doubt her treatments helped us towards parenthood. She listened, she believed in us and she was there literally the day before I gave birth.’

‘I first went to see Norah on a close friend’s recommendation after I suffered a miscarriage in July 2017. Norah’s calm and relaxing demeanour together with the perfectly targeted reflexology treatments were without doubt one of the key factors in getting me through that experience. I continued seeing Norah while trying to conceive again a few months later, with the ultimate success of the birth of our perfectly healthy baby in September 2017. In early 2020 I started seeing Norah again for a combination of talk therapy and reflexology as I know she would be the perfect support as we started the journey in further expanding our family.’
