Reflexology & Aromatheapy
at Maidstone YMCA
I have been going to Ursula for Reflexology and Aromatherapy for several years. She takes great care to get to know her clients needs and any health issues she can help with.
Ursula is the consummate professional but at the same time makes you feel welcome and comfortable. Over the years her treatments have helped me with stress issues and relaxation techniques. I’ve gladly recommended Ursula to my friends and family.
Had some wonderfully calming and balancing Aromatherapy & Reflexology today- a first in months and oh how I realise I need to book in on a regular basis - and I will. Thank you Ursula O'Regan for your holistic Healing
Reflexology & Aromatherapy by Ursula
I have been practicing reflexology, massage and other holistic therapies for more than nine years. I am passionate and committed about every aspect of my work. As a complementary therapist I look at the complete lifestyle of the client requiring my help. With my experience and knowledge I provide an individual and specific treatment for each persons needs.
My aim is to soothe away the stresses and strains of everyday life as well as any aches and pains.
I am a member of the International Federation of Reflexologists and International Federation of Aromatherapists.
What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a specific pressure technique treatment, which is usually applied to the feet but since the hands have the same reflex zones, it can also be applied to the hands if necessary. The treatment affects the internal structures and organs, which are mapped out in miniature on the soles of the feet, these areas correspond to each gland and structure in the body. The Reflexologist systematically applies this technique to many reflex points (from which the therapy takes its name) found on the feet to promote healing.
Benefits of Reflexology:
- - Boosts the immune system, which is weakened by constant stress.
- - Can relieve stress as it calms and soothes.
- - Is a good preventative medicine.
- - Improves the circulation.
- - Can be very helpful at encouraging the body to heal itself and gives the recipient a feeling of well being, relaxing mind and body.
- - The Digestive system is encouraged to work to optimum efficiency.
Apart from relaxation, reflexology is commonly recommended for conditions like insomnia, migraine, asthma, sinusitis, exhaustion, back pain, infertility, constipation, PMS and other Hormonal in-balances.
What is Aromatherapy:
"Aromatherapy" means a "therapy using essential oils derived from plants". These natural plant oils are applied in a variety of ways including massage, aromatic baths, inhalations, hot and cold compresses, mixed in creams, lotions and perfumes. It’s therapeutic and relaxing effects are excellent for treating many ailments as well as uplifting the spirits and creating a general sense of well-being.
Essential oils are individually blended for each client and aftercare advice given to prolong the effect of your treatment.
How will it benefit me?
In physical terms massage speeds up the circulation of the blood, helps lymphatic drainage, aids the body’s elimination of toxins, relieves tense and tired muscles, enhances skin lustre, calms and soothes the nervous system. Essential oils relax the mind and the body. They can help to relieve pain, and restore body systems to a state of equilibrium in which natural healing can take place. In addition, one of the best things about using essential oils is that they are pleasurable as well as therapeutic, which is another way they can enhance your feeling of wellbeing.
