What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a gentle, non-invasive complementary therapy that works on the feet to encourage the body to heal itself. It involves applying gentle pressure to the feet or, occasionally, the hands to bring about a deep state of relaxation and stimulate the body's own healing processes. It's a natural therapy that can also facilitate more vital energy, helping to boost the immune system and create a stronger body and calmer mind.

If you have been ill or injured, under stress, or suffering from a chronic condition, your body will be in a state of imbalance. Vital energy pathways will be blocked, and, in short, your body will be unable to function efficiently.

The way the therapy is applied, and the effect it will have on the body, are unique to each individual client. But normally tensions in the body will ease, and circulation and elimination will improve. Reflexology can often counteract a lifetime of neglect. 

Who can benefit from Reflexology?

Since Reflexology treats the whole person, not just the symptoms of disease, most people benefit from treatment. Reflexology may be an effective treatment for:
  • Back and muscular pain
  • Migraine / headaches
  • Infertility
  • Arthritis
  • Irregular periods
  • Sleep disorders / insomnia
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Sports injuries
  • Digestive disorders
  • Respiratory disorders
  • Anxiety
  • PMS
  • Sciatica
  • Menopausal symptoms
  • Stress-related conditions

Reflexology acts as a complement to conventional medical diagnosis and treatment. It may help with a wide range of both acute and chronic conditions, and is suitable for children and adults. 

Hi, I'm Deanna

I'm an experienced Reflexologist (VTCT Level 3 Qualified) and a licensed Acupuncturist (BSc Hons). I love practising Reflexology, and my clients love receiving it too. I have been practising Reflexology since 2007, and over the years, I have gone on to undertake CPD training learning additional types of Reflexology, which you can find out more about below.  

As a sensitive Reflexologist, I can detect tiny deposits and imbalances in the feet. By working on these areas of the feet, I can release blockages and restore the free flow of energy to the whole body.

Many people use Reflexology to relax the mind and body; some doctors, consultants and other health care professionals recognise Reflexology as a well-established, respected and effective therapy.

Some private health insurance plans will pay for Reflexology treatments. I offer appointments from my clinic in Acklam, Middlesbrough. Treatments usually last an hour a start from £35.

Here's what my clients say

"In another relaxing reflexology session today, Deanna picked up on areas where I had issues. I never mentioned these to her, but working on my feet and chatting, I asked her what was coming up, and the areas she picked up on were exact. I always feel like walking on air when I leave, putting me in a calming, relaxed mood. Highly recommend it for relaxation and balancing your body plus, Deanna is just such a lovely lady to work with and very very knowledgeable and experienced."
"I had hot stones and reflexology and it was amazing, it really helped me to heavily relax and I felt like I floated out. Would definitely recommend."
"Reflexology followed by acupuncture this time, it was like in a spa, two hours of pampering. Thanks Deanna. Looking forward to my next session."

Reflexology is safe and effective for women during pregnancy. It can relieve common pregnancy-related ailments, including morning sickness, nausea, acid reflux and other digestive disorders, constipation, back pain, stress, fatigue, disturbed sleep and insomnia.

Fertility Reflexology

Fertility reflexology can greatly impact how you view your fertility journey and approach your experiences. It can help increase your chances of conception. Even with clients going through assisted conception, like IVF, fertility reflexology can support them by helping them stay relaxed, calm, and with lower stress levels than if they went through it without this support.
