Reflexology with Zoie:
Reflexology is a non-invasive, complementary therapy working on reflex points predominantly on the feet, but also hands and face. Reflexologists believe that the body is represented in the foot and that by these reflex points they can dissolve blockages/crystals thus allowing the body to heal itself physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Dr Fitzgerald introduced the concept of zone therapy in Reflexology. The body is sectioned into 10 zones, 5 on each foot, the head is the big toe in zone 1; from here you work your way to the outer body the ears and shoulders are located in zone 5. The body systems and organs also sit with in these zones, for example directly below the head is the neck, the oesophagus, all the way down to the bladder. By thumb walking the zones the therapist can feel for crystals, energy blockages, built up toxins in particular areas and then work to release the blockages allowing the body to heal itself.
Apart from being an incredibly relaxing treatment, reflexology has many benefits. It can help to relieve stress and anxiety, improve sleep and improve circulation.

Indian head massage works on your neck, shoulders and upper back as well as your head and marma points. Not only is the experience very relaxing, Indian Head Massage can help to reduce muscle tension, improve sleep, promote hair growth and stimulate lymphatic drainage.
Relexology Lymph Drainage (RLD) with Zoie:
The lymphatic system is a vital part of the immune system, although it runs parallel to and interacts with the cardiovascular system it is not pumped around the body by the heart and requires movement to enable it to flow. Lymph nodes can become inflamed when there is an infection and swelling can occur when there is an accumulation of fluid that isn’t draining.
RLD can help move the fluid build up and reduce swelling and ease pain.
Research has shown that RLD can be helpful in the management of secondary lymphoedema and early indications suggest that it can help to alleviate the symptoms of some auto immune disorders.
These pictures were taken before and after an RLD treatment, my client described having a feeling of ‘bars’ under his toes, after one treatment the discomfort was gone.
