A Positive Touch for a Positive You... Therapies for the Whole Family - From Newborn Babies to Grandparents, & Everyone in Between!
I will listen to your needs, what you hope to gain from your therapy session and together we will make a plan to reach your goal. Whether it is stress reduction, alleviating anxiety, regulating your period, managing menopausal symptoms, helping with symptoms of PMS, sleep hygiene, managing pain, managing migraine or irritable bowel syndrome, managing lymphatic problems, sinus problems, build up of ear wax , teething,
or colic - the possibilities are endless. Reflexology and the other therapies I offer are very safe, and have been found to be effective for many.
Complementary therapies can run alongside conventional medicine; but should not be used in place of.
Complementary therapies are never used to diagnose.
You should always seek advice from your GP if you are concerned about your symptoms.
I have been interested in complementary/holistic therapies since I was at school. However being born in the 1970's and brought up on the East coast of Scotland - at that time there was not much call for reflexology or Indian head massage, and I was advised "it was not an option for a career". When I left school I went on to become a registered nurse. In 2000 I went on to gain a qualification in Child development and Education, going on to work as part of a government initiative through "Sure start" with a local authority. Working with the children of substance misusing parents, and the parents themselves. (it was a fantastic opportunity, and I feel very privileged to have had such a role) It was in this post I was very lucky to be given the opportunity to train as a baby massage teacher, teaching parents how to massage their baby safely, and how to promote confidence in the parents to be able do this, how to pick up on their baby's early communication - promoting much required lasting bonds and a life long skill.
At this time I also trained in "feel good therapies" and worked closely with the health board in Perth and Kinross, with expectant very young mothers and new young mothers offering them "feel good therapies" as a way of relaxation, and an introduction into the services available to support them if and when required.
At this point I knew I wanted to explore complimentary therapies further, and so went on to become a fully qualified reflexologist and since then have added to the therapies I offer.
I currently work as a practice nurse 3 days a week and work as a therapist the remainder of the week, including providing Reiki and Reflexology on Saturday morning's in the multiple sclerosis (MS) therapy centre in Dundee.
