Follow the instructions on this image to give yourself a maternity reflexology treatment, or even better, get someone else to do it for you! Make sure you don't do the intestine 4 point until you are past your due date. I would start using these points about a week before you are due to help to relax you and encourage the baby to come naturally.
I have been asking lots of my clients what their new years resolutions are this January. I've heard some very good ones, and I decided it was about time I set myself one, or two, or three....or TWELVE! So I went about setting myself some monthly resolutions...
I'm excited about this year, as I have lots of exciting new changes in my personal life, such as becoming an auntie!
I'm hoping to be able to complete all of these monthly resolutions and I will let you know how I am getting on throughout the year.
One of my goals for 2018 is to make time for myself- and you should do this too!
Whether this means getting up a bit earlier in the morning to go for a walk or run before work, making time to meditate on your lunch-break, reading a book in the evening instead of watching TV, giving yourself a break from your phone and social media, and spending the time doing the things you love to do.
We spend too much time rushing around and not being present- I think we are all guilty of this in London!
And yes- this does mean making time for treatments such as reflexology. Get your appointment booked in now!
I had a great time on the Aromareflex course yesterday. We learnt about 12 essential oils to combine in different ways to help enhance treatment objectives. It's a great way to combine aromatherapy with reflexology.
The different blends we learnt can help with a range of different problems. We looked at the following treatment objectives:
When you come for an aromareflex treatment, we will discuss what you want to get out of the treatment first. Then I will prepare a blend to use for the treatment, the remainder of which you can take home for your own use. Get in contact now to discuss having an aromareflex treatment.
Don't forget it's Mother's Day next Sunday, so make sure you treat your mum to some pampering with a treatment gift voucher...
This June Retreat 4 Your Feet will be featuring at Flovibe Festival which is taking place at Kelmarsh Hall, Northamptonshire. I will be doing reflexology and facial massage at the festival.
"FloVibe is about discovery, designed to nourish and re-energise mind, body and soul, without a week of recovery. We’re a ‘hybrid festival’ because we believe life is all about balance, you’ll get to experience all the benefits of mindful living in a festival setting far away from city life. We believe that to be truly well we need to be in it together. This festival is for everyone, bringing people together to rest and play, side by side. Bring the family with you, there will be kids yoga, storytelling, crafts and games for them to enjoy."
I am so excited for this to be the first festival that Retreat 4 Your Feet will be at. Be sure to book your treatments in advance...
As 2016 is now drawing to a close, it's time to look back on the year and look forward to 2017 and hopefully a more positive time. The negativity of 2016 seems to be all around- on the radio, in the newspapers and even on Christmas cards being sent this year.
However, a brighter outlook will help us all, and I feel like the new year is much needed for most of us to do this.
For Retreat 4 Your Feet, this year has been packed full of fun and memories. I brought in the New Year in Mozambique with my family, went on a road trip in Florida, had a city break in Barcelona, went to my 3rd (and muddiest!) Glastonbury, completed a Whole30 challenge, and passed my driving test(!)...all amongst working with the most lovely clients, all of whom I feel honoured to have helped and treated.
I have furthered my Reflexology knowledge by taking part in some great courses- including hot stone reflexology, a breakthrough seminar with Tony Porter, and linking meridians with reflexology.
There is also so much to be excited about for 2017!
Retreat 4 Your Feet is excited to announce that we will be working at FloVibe festival, which takes place in Northampton on 2nd-4th June. A unique festival where retreat meets festival, and you don't have to take a 1 week holiday to recover afterwards! The festival will include some amazing yoga, meditation and pilates workshops, lots of great music, and of course some treatments. You can purchase your tickets here: FloVibe Tickets and make sure to use the discount code: georgiefv to get some money off!
I'll also be taking part in more great courses, to keep my knowledge as up to date as possible.
I will be spending Christmas in Devon this year, and will be away from 23rd December- 2nd January. If I don't see you before Christmas, have a wonderful time, and I look forward to treating you in 2017!
