Nurse/Reflexologist

GCM/NMC No: 17I0225N

I currently work as a staff nurse within the NHS. At present I uphold a bank nurse position, working mainly within a variety of gynae clinics & gynae surgery.

My nursing career began in the Regional Intensive Care Unit, where I cared for critically ill patients. I gained a wealth of medical and life experience during my time in RICU. I met many families who were at the mercy of the staff to do everything they could to preserve life. I was involved in organ donation during my time in RICU, alongside rigorous training to ensure my knowledge and skill set met the demands of the department.

Following on from my time in RICU, I worked in a busy gynae & and early pregnancy ward. The work here was very different, however the skill of counseling patients and families, during vulnerable stages of life, was very transferrable. I nursed many women following the diagnosis of miscarriage, recurrent pregnancy loss, cancer diagnosis, hyperemesis, hysterectomy, preterm delivery, and many other gynae complications and conditions. I quickly realised that this area of nursing was my area of speciality. I have a huge passion for women’s health, particularly health promotion and education. I found that reflexology married very well with gynae nursing. I often performed reflexology during night shifts on patients who were going through cancer treatment or diagnosis, and women admitted with hyperemesis. Reflexology was always well received and welcomed in these circumstances, I found that reflexology and modern medicine make a dynamic team when used well together, ultimately enhancing health and wellbeing.

Reflexology is derived from the idea that the soles of the feet represent a map of the rest of the body, and are a reflection of the corresponding organ systems.

Reflexology is a non-invasive, holistic, touch therapy. It involves the application of pressure, complemented by massage, to stimulate particular reflexes on the feet.

The human body is made up of a large diameter of sensory fibres and nerve pathways that continuously communicate with one another to maintain homeostasis within the body.

The feet house over 7,200 nerve endings, more than anywhere else in the body. ALL of which are stimulated during reflexology.

Reflexology is a SAFE treatment for everyone.

Reflexology has been found to reduce stress, relieve pain, improve bodily functions, improve sleep, assist with pregnancy symptoms, fertility struggles & restore the body to its natural equilibrium, thus improving mental, physical & emotional well-being (to name a few).

Reflexology is an intelligent complementary therapy. The primary effect of reflexology is that it is deeply relaxing. Many describe the experience as being, ‘anaesthetised’ by the pressure applied to such a sensory dense part of the body.
It will allow you to relax your restless mind and enter into a trance like state of relaxation.

Let’s take some accountability for our own mental, physical and emotional well-being, because self-care is the pillar of health-care.
