Stress & Anxiety
Stress is normal! In short episodes, it’s a positive way to provide an extra burst of energy, keeping us healthy, with a zest for life. Unfortunately, when short term stress becomes long term stress, the healthy positivity becomes an unhealthy negativity.
When stress is long term, it effects the whole body –
• The obvious sleeping difficulties and emotional anguish
• Increasing heart rate and raising blood pressure
• Muscle tension, giving rise to pain and discomfort
• Digestive issues, such as IBS
• Debilitating both the immune system and the reproductive system
It follows that reducing stress in this fast-paced world is beneficial to both our emotional and physical wellbeing.
The answer lies in Reflexology – a non-invasive treatment to kick start relaxation, thus reducing stress, rebalancing and energizing both body and mind.
Hormones will influence women’s bodies from the start of puberty right through to the menopause and beyond. In other words – most of their adult lives. Though perfectly natural processes that don’t, or hardly, effect some women, many other will endure related problems such as any one, or more than one, of these – heavy and/or painful periods, pre-mentrual syndorme (PMS) endometriosis, poly cystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or menopausal symptoms. These can affect women’s quality of life, to lesser or greater degrees.
Hormones can be balanced and relaxation can be boosted with clinical reflexology. Research supports the view that reflexology is beneficial to some hormone imbalance issues (e.g. menopause, painful periods and PMS).
Nia has personally had great success in helping women suffering from hormonal imbalances.
Reflexology for men. Let’s break the barriers and get rid of the dated stigma! Reflexology benefits men just as much as it benefits women. This alternative therapy is not exclusively female orientated. Today’s modern man needs to be far more open to try these therapies. Ladies – you can kick-start them with gentle persuasion – or one of my Gift Vouchers. Men – be the frontrunners, then encourage your male associates. You have nothing to lose, but a lot to gain. You might be embarrassed about your feet, but that’s not a male prerogative! The benefits you gain will far outweigh any such trifling issues. I have treated men’s feet, and, each time, they have been complementary in their feedback. Exposing their feet really opened their eyes.
Simple common sense tells us that stress does not manifest itself solely in women. Women feel worn out. Men feel worn out. Women suffer many ailments. Men suffer many ailments. Men are not super-humans who manage to swerve all that life throws at them. Some men will probably waste more time and energy than women in ignoring all negativity. Men’s coping mechanism and strategies can be improved or encouraged. Generally, women are more willing, or more able, to open up, to discuss with friends, but men feel a need to keep matters to themselves. Mental health is a modern-day scourge in our society, for both sexes. Bottling thing up is not the answer. Reflexology’s benefits are equal, for men and women.

Reflexology Lymph Drainage
I’m currently working toward completing my accreditation to be able to offer this award winning reflexology technique which focuses on stimulating the lymphatic reflexes on the feet. It is a unique sequence that has been researched and developed by Sally Kay. I’ve been lucky enough to have been taught by the developer herself, Sally Kay (a multi-award winning reflexology practitioner, researcher, educator and author). She’s taught me how to ensure quite astonishing results each time a treatment is given.
Defining RLD and its values
It is a precise way of performing Reflexology by using specific moves designed to target the lymphatic system, and in so doing, it will stimulate it. It focuses solely on the feet, or the hands. The aim of this is to encourage the lymph fluid to flow, thus draining out of the troublesome area and into an unaffected area that drains as normal. In turn, swelling will be reduced, and toxins and blockages will be removed, in a natural way, due to the body’s own response and stimulation. Underlying this process is the assurance that the body’s ability to ward off infections is also being boosted.
The results of RLD can be felt immediately – the affected area feels less heavy, and less tense, and one can see a reduction in swelling. This is often the case after merely one treatment. Some clients, however, will opt to measure the affected limb prior to, and after treatment.
RLD is used to address many diverse symptoms other than the obvious lymphoedema. It can assist clients who suffer from: Arthritis, Asthma, Eczema, Fibromyalgia, ME, Muscular Tension, Sinus Problems.
This innovative approach to reflexology has attracted national and international awards, and when my case studies are complete, it will be available for you on your doorstep in Denbigh!

I couldn’t believe it – after just one session with Nia I came on! I wouldn’t usually shout about this fact, but it means so much to us as a couple I don’t mind sharing; our dream of being parents can quite possibly come true now!
Excellent reflexology, Nia is professional, knowledgeable and welcoming. Beautiful treatment room so relaxing. Diolch o galon.
Lovely relaxing treatment from Nia in a very comfortable environment. Will definitely be returning soon.
Fantastic head massage, mixture of comforting and refreshing! Highly recommend this new company....the treatment room is beautiful!
Such a relaxing session. Nia is such a lovely person and welcoming. Have already booked my next session with her. Mae hi hefyd yn siarad Cymraeg!
Nia was extremely professional and welcoming to someone who has never tried reflexology. Can’t wait for my next session, highly recommended! Total relaxation – perfect.
Absolutely fabulous massage the other night. Gorgeous room.... gorgeous lady!
I want to be totally honest, I hate my feet and due to that I’m not keen on someone being so close to them. Nia’s passion about Reflexology made me curious to see if I could get over my small fear and let her work her magic. Well, I am so glad I took the plunge. I will never look back and have a regular monthly slot – me time! The professionalism, knowledge and warmth that Nia exuberates is out of this world. I wouldn’t recommende anyone else and if you are in need of some you time you need to see Nia and let her work her magic.
Thank you for the reflexology last night – the headache dissapeared and I had the best night sleep I’ve had for a while. World of good!
Really enjoyed the treatment. I completely relaxed. Thank you very much.
Very relaxing, head and hands next. Diolch yn fawr.
Excellent, knowledgeable and highly professional treatment.
I hadn’t imagined that Reflexology could help me as much as it has in the healing process. From the outset, Nia has made me feel at ease, listening to my concerns, and discussing how to get the best out of the treatment. A session that offers something unique to your needs, with passion and dedication from Nia. I would encourage anyone to visit Nia and put your ‘Feet Up’.
