In a homeopathic consultation we collect as much information as we can about the person that is seeking help. Through listening and gathering information, a profile (of your life picture) unfolds, that will lead to the homeopathic prescription.
Every bit of information is like a piece in a jigsaw puzzle. The more pieces we have, the clearer the picture becomes. We then match that picture with the picture of a homeopathic medicine that has the most similar qualities.
Homeopathy is a gentle and safe therapy that focuses on the individual.
Instead of treating a disease, all of the patient’s symptoms – physical and emotional - are taken into consideration when choosing a homeopathic medicine.
Homeopathy treats acute illness and chronic complaints.
Consultations are strictly confidential.
In Homeopathy we follow a rule of nature called “The Law of Similars”. This rule states that “like cures like” or a medicine that can cause symptoms in a healthy person can take symptoms away in a sick person. A good example is “Allium cepa” or red onion which commonly causes a person to get a runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing. Applied in a homeopathically potentized form the same substance can relieve a cold or hayfever symptoms with similar symptoms of a runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing. The homeopathic remedy therefore sends the body a message how it can heal itself.
Homeopathy means: “To treat with a remedy that produces an effect similar to the disease”.
The Law of Similars has been known by Hippocrates. It was Samuel Hahnemann, a german doctor, who created the idea of homeopathy in the early 1800’s.
Homeopathic medicines are usually made from plant, mineral or animal material. The original substance is then diluted and potentized repeatedly. The remedies are safe and effective. Homeopathy also works on animals, infants and plants.
A placebo effect is therefore not in place. For a scientific explanation about “How Homeopathy works” please watch the video by Judyann McNamara "What makes Homeopathy a Quantum Medicine?"

In a foot reflexology session appropriate pressure is used to stimulate or sedate certain points and areas on the feet.
Specific areas and reflex points correspond to different body organs and systems, and by treating them it can have a beneficial effect on the organs and the person's general health.
Reflexology offers the opportunity to treat the whole body by working away from the effected area.
For example, a person with a broken rib would not wish to be touch near the painful area, but after receiving a reflexology treatment focusing on the rib cage may feel relieved of pain for quite some time. Reflexology can also help to speed up the recovery after the injury.
Numerous conditions like asthma, anxiety, hormonal imbalance, sinusitis, autoimmune dysfunction (to name only a few) can benefit from regular reflexology treatments.
Reflexology also aids to enhance general well-being, reduce stress, encourage relaxation, improves circulation, cleanses the body of impurities, improves digestive imbalances, revitalises energy, assists in natural fertility and nurtures emotional well being.
Ear Acupuncture or Auricular Therapy is a form of reflexology that uses tiny acupuncture needles to treat specific point on the ear.
It is a different system from Chinese medicine and was developed by French neurologist Paul Nogier.
I quite often use both reflexology systems at the same time and let the needles do their work in the ear while I get to work on the person's feet.

Massage Therapy is a manipulation of the soft muscle tissue of the body. This can be applied with different pressure. A gentle pressure promotes relaxation and well-being. A firm pressure or deep tissue massage with added Trigger Point treatment can be used in rehabilitation after sport injuries, sore necks and backs and many other complaints.
Massage in general improves blood circulation, moves toxins out of the body, can help release adhesions in muscle fibres and increase awareness of what our body actually feels like and where tension might be stored.
Massage Therapy is suitable for all ages.
Babies benefit from massages by having their awareness of their own body increased. It is safe for pregnant women but special care will be taken into consideration. Older people might feel relieve of their daily aches and pains decreased.
I often also use Polarity Therapy and Reiki at some stage during a massage.
