My name is Zandra Noaro and I am a reflexologist. I will be covering for Francis in her reflexology clinic for the month of February.
I qualified approx. two years ago and am building my mobile business. In addition to regular reflexology, I have also trained in fertility, maternity (post 12 weeks), mindful reflexology supporting stress, anxiety and depression as well as hot stone reflexology.
Hot stone reflexology takes relaxation to another level. Originating in India and China, the concept of using heated stones to massage the body is centuries old. It was believed that the hot stones cleansed the body and relaxed the heart, grounding the soul and soothing the mind. Today, this luxurious therapy incorporates using smooth heated stones to massage the lower legs and feet as part of the reflexology treatment.
It may help to lower cortisol levels and to help support the parasympathetic nervous system to help the body reverse the stress reaction.
Frances Box, our reflexologist tried the hot stone reflexology, this is what she had to say:
‘As a Reflexologist experiencing hot stone Reflexology for the first time, I would like to say what a magical treatment this is. With imminent surgery coming up and feeling anxious about it, I was deeply relaxed having this treatment and my breathing calmed down which has been rapid for a week or so. I felt as though I was floating and could have gone to sleep if I hadn’t wanted to observe the treatment!! I can thoroughly recommend this as a very pleasurable treatment and a wonderful present for Valentine’s Day!!’
